Poured a dark copper/red color with off white head. the aroma of sweet malts, hops and spices and possibly dark fruits. The flavor was very good, my first winter beer this year. Taste is rather complex for a Christmas beer. Begins slightly bitter with a roasted nutty flavor which leads to sweeter caramel notes and then finishes with a bit of hop bitterness, then a light xmas Spice. Very enjoyable offering, This will be one of my sought after brews every year. Too bad I live in Ohio.

On tap at Scratch Bar. Rating from December 2013. Lots of spice in this beer. Perfect for a cold winter’s day but also went down well on a hot summer’s day.

BrewGoblin (309) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
Ebonied ruby lil’ sauce up in here. Everyone seems to go bonkers for this. I don’t get it. I mean it’s solid, but not "flip your wig" crazy good. If looks could be taste it’d have a higher score. Whiff of molasses, maple, caramel and light spices. Taste is similar but a bit more nutty and slightly bitter but still sweet. Awesome cover art every year though.

Jado (526) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 13, 2014
From 355 ml bottle. Pours a mahogany brown with lighter honey highlights at the edge and a small cream coloured head. Aromas of dried fruit, toast, orange peel, dark caramel, black coffee and a whiff of booze. Taste is baked apple, raisins and dark bread at the front rising to a firm citrus zest bitterness. That falls off at the end to a spicy, fruity finish. More spice in the aftertaste. Nicely balanced and delicious.
