UPDATED: JAN 22, 2011 12oz bottle thanks to Blutt59.
Lots of spices in aroma and flavor. Wish it was heavier. I like a winter warmer to have a bit more to it, just decent.

Bottle from Graziano’s Pizza in Lawrencville, PA. Great pizza and some good beers. This is a very nice winter warmer, maybe just a little too sweet, plenty of spices, light copper color and a modest head

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(12oz bottle). Pours clear amber with 1 finger off-white head. Active carbonation. Aroma of spices, cardboard and orange. Taste is sweet with some bitterness that tastes like the pith from orange peel. Lighter bodied with thin texture. Finish is smooth. Better than I expected.
