Pours a fiery orange color with absolutely no head. Strong cinnamon and nutmeg aroma. Normally, I'm not the biggest fan of spiced ales, as the spices usually seem to dominate the palate. This example is a bit different- while the cinnamon and nutmeg are strong, the sweet malt background makes this taste like a cookie instead of spiced spiked water.

Wow. My wife picked this up for me, and my first expectation was that it would be one of those six packs that sit in the fridge forever, but it was not to be. Prevalent nutmeg bitterness, and a plesant aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg,as well as a hint of clove and ginger. A nice amber color with a thick head. A nice change from other holiday brews I've had. Not too heavy. A nice one I'll look forward to again.

A nice surprise. The beer tastes just like an oatmeal cookie with some cinnamon spices. Mmmm, I can almost taste the raisins.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2004
Bottled, Cherbourg, Massachusetts. Ginger/amber colour. Large ginger and spiced aroma. Cinnamon and spiced flavours, ginger and mixed roots. Not the easiest of beers to drink but you have my assurance that it was put to the sword.

Nice spicey flavor. Yellow in color. Cinnamon and Nutmeg. Malty. Nice christmas beer.

Undated single bottle. Almost a drain pour, and a huge disappointment from Harpoon. Intense cloying cinnamon, destroys whatever else they were offering.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2003
Not sure what to make of this. Nice orange yellow color with a white head. Interesting spice aroma, that reminds me of cola more than anything else. A combination of wintergreen, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Glad I like cola. Nice spicey flavor, and you can pick out the hops! Malty as well. Emjoyable for a Christmas beer.

cherr (162) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 26, 2003
The beer has a smell of both cinnamon and nutmeg. The color is a middle amber. The taste is a bit muted, but the spices are very evident. The spices really make this beer as the background is a bit like a typical domestic.

HighlanderOne (1071) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2003
Well done. Sometimes these winter brews tend to too overwhelming with flavor - almost gooey. Harpoon got it right. The cinnamon & nutmeg are right there in the aroma and taste, but not to the point that it makes you sick as you drink it. Good feel and finish all the way.

Pretty interesting; like eating cinammon toast and drinking ale... Enjoyable but I found it very thin bodied.
