Was very surprised by this one. Has a lot of spice in the aroma, good amount of ginger and sugar. Very gingerbread like. Dark color with a thin white head. All the flavors seem really well balanced. Very easy to drink.

What a wonderful offering from Highland! Slight clove, well-hopped flavors accent a wonderful ale profile. Pours a beautiful grapefruit color with a rich ivory head. Great for wintertime sipping. Highly recommended.

Pours a deep clear amber. Aroma has hints of hops and spice. The flavor is slighty spicy and sweet with a little hops at the end. Another good brew from Highland.

Iím sitting on several bombers from the winter of 2008-2009, and I thought Iíd open one tonight to see how itís coping with the ravages of time. The head is still quite substantial and, although it dissipates quickly, it leaves lacing on your glass. Unfortunately, the carbonation itself is rather coarse. The liquid is rosewood-colored with an aroma of rich, peaty malt. Something that tastes like white chocolate and a hint of caramel moderate the maltiness to make this suitable for a warmer evening like tonight.

[2640-20091205] 22floz bottle. A little white chocolate powdery cocoa. Clear, red amber body with a quick bubbly white head. White chocolate sweet malt hints continue in the flavour with a nice, subtle general chocolate malt and sweetness. Medium body. Really interesting, white chocolate is surprisingly prevalent, and there are some odd toasted characteristics going on too.

22 oz bottle. Clear amber brown with a spongy beige head. Nose is quite spicy with cinnamon stick, nutmeg, clove and brown sugar. Creamy medium body with brisk carb. Taste is toasted grains and coconut, caramel and same spices. Tasty and easy drinking with just enough spice.

Pours redish to light brown color with smells of sweet candi malts and tastes of caramel. very sweet. Lightly carbonated and drinks very easily. We mixed this with an Imperial Black Mocha Stout and that was an experience! If you have never do it and can get the beers, do it.

09 batch. Deep rich ruby amber color, frothy beige head. Aroma of toffee, creamy marshmallow, nut. Taste is sweet caramel with some hint of dark chocolate, not getting too much spice. Rich creamy texture, medium carbonation. Lingering roast and hop spice finish.

my nose is a little stuffed up. dark reddish pour with a small head that dissipates quickly leaving fhead clumps on the side of the glass. Tastes of strong vanilla, some cinnamon, and a few other holiday type spices.. and kind of tastes like bubble gum. very drinkable. a good winter seasonal thats refreshing in the hot florida weather.
