Copper-amber ale w/ slightly off-white head. The aroma is strong in spice with nutmeg and cinnamon sticks. The taste is a let-down... very spicy and the malts are there, but it’s just too thin for all this. This is a new style for me, having only had Anchor’s O.S.A which was leaps and bounds ahead of this. Back to the beer, it def. brings the holidays into focus but the nutmeg is so hard I can’t tell if its Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas but maybe that wasn’t the point. As you can imagine the palate isn’t bad but needs more of a concentration and less randomness. This leads to only wanting one, and me left with most of a twelve pack... any takers?

Poured from bottle, dark amber hue with a cragely off-white head and little lace. Aroma had a big spicy nose of cinnamon and allspice with additional cereal, roasted malt, floral hops, leather, plum, and apple notes. An OK seasonal beer, to be in the mood for.

eautifully clear and brillant chestnut beer. The foam head was bbelow averah=ge at maybe 1/4 inch.A wispy foam ring with a foamy veil inside was present through out the drinking sesssion. Good carbo’s. Each sip or swirl brought on a release of foaminess that left a nice lacing down the glass. Sweet smelling malts were paired nicely with apple pie spices. Candied sugar. A nice sweet caramel malt taste with apple pie or pumpkin pie spices balancing the malts out nicely. A medium body with a dry finish that lingers well into the after taste. A very good beer for the upcoming Christmas season.

Pours a darker ruby amber color with off-white head. Cinnamon and nutmeg are strong on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some roasted malt character.

Drank from the bottle. Date on the bottle was 02/14. Given a six pack from my liquor store boss. Smell is nuts, cinnamon, bread, and toast. Taste was overpowering on the cinnamon. Thin body, medium carbonation, watery. Beer still tasted fresh, but I did not truly enjoy it.

Aroma nutmeg and cinnamon. Decent pour dark amber color long lasting head and lacing. All downhill from there. Quick hit of winter spices than it turns metallic. Bland funky poured most of it out.

OK. Some nutmeg and some cinnamon. Pours orange brown without much head or lacing. Typical Christmas beer, nothing special. Bottle on sale at Chevy Chase.

Bottle: Dark amber color with a short lived cream color head. Aroma was promising with Christmas spices prominent. The spices are the carrier of the beer, nutmeg is prominent, with a little cinnamon. Not much else in there though kind of a spiced water with a background of earthy hops….kind of blah in my opnion

Bottle. Pours dark red with a thin white head that doesn’t last very long. Has a bit of nutmeg or some other Christmas spice on the nose. Doesn’t taste like very much. Not much malt or hop action and only a faint cinnamon. Watery finish. Meh!

Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a dark amber body with a small off white head that dissapates quickly with barely any lacing. The smell had cinnamon and nutmeg, some clove in the background. The taste was sweet yet becoming balanced to some light bitterness as it warms. The palate sat about a medium; slightly sessionable; slightly bitter aftertaste; clean, dry finish. Overall, a decent winter warmer, nothing spectacular but would have it again.
