Pour is burnt orange, with a small off-white head. Aroma is of candi sugar, plums, pear, cloves, and allspice. Taste is sweet at first and leads into a Belgian yeast and spice finish.

Smells like gingerbread and fruitcake. Murky brown with fast diminishing head. Alcohol burns through the mix and brings warmth. A real winter warmer.

12oz bottle thanks le docteur ver d’argent. Potpourri nose. Glad the hop distracts from the holiday nonsense. I get a feeling this is a blend. Sweet but mellows as it warms.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle shared by DrSilverworm- thanks again, Chris! Pours a clear, deep, reddish-amber color with a small eggshell head. Aroma of leaves, toasted malts, brown sugar, caramel, overripe fruit, and cardboard. Smells kind of old. Flavor of booze-soaked bread, figs, raisins, caramel, brown sugar, cookie, and spices. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, spicy, boozy mouthfeel. A little much for me.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
This one poured a ruby red color with an off white head. Aroma was of lots of spices, mainly cinnamon and numeg and lots of alcohol. Flavor was simiarlar, apple, cinnamon and boatlaods of harsh booze. Not too great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Light copper pour with a finger of white head that dissipates quickly. Coriander, nutmeg, sweet spices, pumpkin pie, soda and chocolate. Lighter than expected body. Wanted more kick and dryness. A bit too sweet for me but a good beer to have while relaxing on a cold day

Bottle. Thx canon. So far I don't know why I keep trying. Spice beer is very low on my list. Nutmeg and coriander kills me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from DrSilverworm. Pours a slightly hazy dark reddish amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have allspice, nutmeg, additional herbs and spices, caramel, yeast sweet malts, fairly smooth, if I didn’t read the bottle I wouldn’t have guessed that it was over 10 %.

POPE, Philadelphia tap ($6): Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is a whole heck of a lot of spices, like allspice, cloves, and I even got something akin to ginger. Nice roasted malts and plenty of sweetness as well. Taste is similar. Nice body. Alcohol is well covered. I thought it was quite nice.
