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

Sweet and spicy. Cinnamon and Nutmeg obviously. Hint of banana. In fact, it reminds me of banana nut bread. Not my style perse, but quite enjoyable as on a cold gloomy evening.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the very brewery. Pours a very murky brownish red, very thin beige head, patchy. Aroma is all spice, nutmeg, clove, ginger and cinnamon. Taste is quite sweet, very heavily spiced, a lot of nutmeg and a very slightly sour character from the spice. Smooth, a little thin, but with a great nutmeg and cinnamon aftertaste that lasts and lasts. Quite a delicious brew, and an interesting choice for cask.

I like the spice notes of this beer. It’s nothing amazing, but it’s certainly enjoyable.

This is a very nice winter warmer. Has a ton of spices, especially cinnamon. Medium bodied and rich.

Would buy again. Holds up nicely with steak and ribs. Spices are up front and pleasant.

Poured from bottle into pint glass: Pours red / amber with a thin tan head. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, clove...lots of spices. Taste is malt and a hit in the face with a spiced sledgehammer. There is nothing subtle about this beer. Cloyingly sweet, over spiced, gross beer. Took a sip just for the tick. This is one of my least favorite beers from an otherwise pretty good brewery. They need a new winter seasonal.

This beer is fantastic! The flavor is wonderful with just the right amount of body and flavor. We have been quite happy with this find of a nice winter warner!

Pale red color. No lace at all. Malt, toast, spice, and cinnamon. Lots of cinnamon. A definite winter beer. It’s ok.
