Tap @ BeerTemple, small sample. Dark color, medium off-white head. Aroma is quite spicy, caramel, hint of chocolate, toffee. The spices overpower, but never get too much as they are backed up by quite some malt. In flavor it has some sweetness and a soft bitterness. Again the spices power up the beer, but I could easily drink a small sampler and maybe even another glass. But I had more to try on the tap list :P

Pours dark brown with some reddish highlights. Small beige head. Aroma features spices, along with some roast and chocolate, molasses, light fruitiness. Medium body. Flavor is very spiced. Iím reminded of gingersnaps. Spot on. Finish is all holiday spices, fair bitterness and dryness. Yep. Gingersnaps.

Strong spice aroma-nutmeg, ground cinnamon, clove. Taste is similar. Very rich, smooth, spices like a strong egg nog or pie. Slight roasty finish.

TheBeerGod (5254) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle. Muddy brown pour with a short tan head. Spicy, nutty nose with toasted malt and toffee. Taste is big cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, toasted malt, soft nutty notes, light earthy hops and spiced Christmas cookies. Body is medium with a soft, bubbly carbonation. Lots of lingering spiciness on the palate. Ends with more clove and nutmeg, spices, toffee notes, toasted malt, light multigrain bread notes, earthy hops and softer nutty notes.

tomekk1978 (477) - POLAND - MAR 26, 2014
Barwa: ciemna, niemal nieprześwitująca. Piana beżowa, raczej drobno pęcherzykowa, niezbyt obfita i dość szybko opadająca. Aromat: nieco mniej intensywny niż się spodziewałem - ciemne słody, czekolada przyprawy (goździki, cynamon). Smak: czekolada, przyprawy, kwaskowość i goryczka, ktůra trochę przeszkadza. Następnie nuta alkoholowa, paloność, melanoidyny oraz suszone śliwki. Tutja z kolei bardziej złożony niż sądziłem. Piwo dość złożone, ale w sumie podobne do wielu znacznie tańszych piw świątecznych. Z tego względu nie wiem czy warto przepłacać.

On tap at The Chicago Beer Festival 2014. Deep brown with a small tan head. Aroma is of sweet malt, roast, nutmeg, and earth. Flavor is similar but on the faint side - clove, roast, peppermint, gingerbread. Dry finish.

Wittales (636) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Appearance was cloudy black with tiny tan diminishing head, no lacing. Aromas are nutmeg, cinnimon, leather, all spice with hints of vanilla, musky hops, no alcohol. Taste are chocolate, biscuit, pale malt upfront then nutmeg and allspice with earthy hops. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with medium-full body, lasting leathery spicy malty finish. A strange brew, it might have an infection:(
