thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - FEB 23, 2013
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a uncarbonated transparent orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The aroma was mild malt and mild vinous. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish mild vinous hop aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of vinous hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. Hell, it was on sale for next to nothing so I couldn’t resist. It pours a hazy deep orange with a lasting off white head. The aromas is very spicy with lots of clove, mace, and dried fruit. The flavor is a little sweet with some caramel and that same spicy, dried fruitiness from the nose. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Not mind blowing compared to it’s peers, but for $5, it was worth it!

Floback (527) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle from Knightly Spirits. One inch of white head under a murky amber brew. The aroma is enticingly piney; like sniffing a fresh Xmas tree. Fresh herbs, grass, cucumber, cookie dough, tree resin, subtle horse blanket, malty caramel in the backbone. Medium carbonation and medium body. Best holiday beer I've had all season! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brandman (2130) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 29, 2012
Copperbody, white head. Aroma has dark fruits, yeast, spices. Taste is bit metallic and sugary. Smooth and foamy mouthfeel. In general, bit boring beer.

Dark brown colour. Aroma has quite strong clove and aniseed. Very smooth taste and quite warming too. The clove does numb the taste a little.
