Malts are up-front, particularly bittersweet chocolate, then comes a bunch of pumpkin pie spice on a good finish. Basically your standard pumpkin spice beer without the actual pumpkin and dressed up for the holidays.

chucklemation (563) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Pours a dark brown with a white foam head. Aroma is allspice, clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Those aromas come out nicely in the flavor as well, which is also sweet and a little bitter. Has a full body mouthfeel. Delicious.

kaser (3113) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2014
I’d like to punch whoever put the wax around the cap, took me 10 minutes to get this bastard open. Poured from 12oz bottle from trade, at home. Brown with off white head. Has a bourbon boozy nutty aroma, huge smell on this guy. Has a carmel and malty bread taste. Brown sugar, maple syrup, and just VERY sweet. Not a huge fan, but can tell it is a quality brew.

nearbeer (3842) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 18, 2014
12 oz. that seems to have a 2013 bottling date. Opaque dark brown with a small ring of bubbles. Aroma is at first dominated by allspice and clove. After a bit I discover there’s some mocha, smoke and cherry. Tastes of lightly tart blackberry, smoky meat, licorice, clove and wheat. Medium-heavy body is smooth with low-medium carbonation and has a nice balance. Really interesting and unique brew that may have benefited from spices being dissipated a bit in the year of aging.

Vestergaard (453) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2014
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours clear, dark brown with a small, oily, off white head. Aroma is packed with sweet christmas stuff; clove, clove, clove, clove, clove, clove, sweet orange peel, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, dough, dark malts and vanilla. Taste has all of the same stuff, but is not as sweet, and fortunately has some hops to balance out this madness. Carb is mesium and alcohol is well hidden. Never have i had such a christmassy beer. Wow.
