6 pack from giant eagle. Sweet and spicy nose. Medium light body with a moderate carbonation. Nutmeg and maybe even pumpkin in there. Smooth finish with just a little bite to remind you that you're a man. One of the better Xmas beers.

This brew pours a clear brown with a medium caramel head. It has an intresting spice smell that I can’t quite place. I think it might be somewhere between chiles/peppers and some other, less spice-like vegetable. Decent bitter taste with a nice sweet/sour balance that isn’t too overwhelming. A light to medium body with a lasting finish that leves you wanting more. This is a winter brew that I will revisit again and again.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a small white head. Aroma is of malts and spices. Flavor is malty, slightly nutty, and slightly hoppy with a holiday spice finish. Very good.

Pours an amber with little head. Smells of nutmeg, cloves.. A spiced cider.
Tastes a little piney. Not in the hoppy way but in the Xmas way. Reminds me of southern tier 2xmas but just a little less good. Still tasty.

On tap at Oakroom, pours light brown, has a very strong spicy aroma of cinnamon... plenty of alcohol in the taste... a bit too much cinnamon and ginger for my palate...

Served on tap at Dewey’s Pizza. If you like spicey winter beers, this will be good. Pours a caramel brown with an off white head. The spice taste is fairly pronounced and has a warming alcohol taste at the end. I don’t know the ABV but I’m assuming its aroun 7%. I taste ginger and cinnamon. This has a roasty, Toffee like malt taste through out which is
complemented well by the spice. A very good winter beer.
