UPDATED: FEB 4, 2015 Bottle. Pours a brownish color with white head. Cinnamon, spice, toast aromas. Cinnamon, nutmeg, spice bomb, brown sugar, toast flavors. This is a spice bomb Christmas beer. This is the type of beer that Iíd maybe be in the mood for once or twice a year, but in many ways it is just an overly spiced caricature of a seasonal style Iím not too fond of.

A nice aroma but not very strong. Very nice cloudy brown body and very thin white suds. Smooth on the palate and a subtle aftertaste. The flavor has a nice winter spice to it. - Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[Bottle] Pours a deep amber hue with minimal head. Nose is of cinnamon, nutmeg and hints of anise. Taste is heavy on the spices. More cinnamon and some ginger mixes with caramel and bready malts. Lighter dark rum and brown sugar in the finish. Better balance compared to many beers of this style.

Clear mahogany pour with a nice off white head and nice lacing. Strong spice aroma with nuts and toffee in the background. Nutmeg is dominant in the flavor with cinnamon, caramel, and toast in there as well. Medium body.

I thought that this would have rated higher until I actually plugged in the numbers. Pours a bright copper color with a nice tan head. Strong cinnamon aroma with cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar flavors. Could be described as a cider-like ale. A decent substitute to 2X Xmas from southern tier.

Pours a clear amber color with. Diminishing head. Aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg and taste is the same. A nice beer for a cold winter day. A little less spice than ST 2xmas. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nephilium (1453) - Ohio, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Aroma is predominantly cinnamon with just a touch of brown sugar and nutmeg. Pours a clear red with a thin off-white head. This is very cinnamon forward, overpowering the nutmeg and the hops. This is just a bit under being a cinnamon bomb, but thatís the only flavor Iím pulling out of it besides a little malt sweetness. Not bad, just a bit heavy handed with cinnamon

Underrated beer and one of my favorite winter beers. Pours a clear amber with light brown head. Has a strong aroma of spices and malts. Taste is strong with a mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, hops, roasted malts, and caramel. A lingering taste of winter spices.

I enjoyed this. Nice spicy aroma of malt and cinnamon. Pretty copper color with nice clarity. Medium weight and carbonation. Flavor was mildly sweet with a decent hop balance and nice spices. Cinnamon and nutmeg. Good holiday beer.
