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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Cinamon and nutmeg spices are evident in aroma and aftertaste. This beer could make an intresting session beer.

Medium amber color. Small head. Aroma is NUTMEG!!!!!, allspice, cinnamon and oranges. A light bodied winter warmer. Malts are fruity and sweet with a touch of orange and citrus, Hops are slightly spicy, but are sort of overwhelmed but the nutmeg and cinnamon. Despite that ‘flaw’ this beer sort of works. It’s a nice light flavorful and spicy winter warmer. The spiciness goes away rather quickly and you are left drinking a nice light winter beer. It’s different for a winter beer, but it works. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is spicy and nutmeggy.
