[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.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2013 Rerate Must have gotten an old bottle last time. More pronounced nutty aroma this time around Original 3.3 Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverages - big ass litre pop-top bottle. Murky dark orangeish-copper colored pour with a light slightly off-white head. Fresh lake water aroma, some faint overripe fruitiness - expected more. Some Christmas spices show up initially with a hint of licorice. Some candy-like notes make their presence known as well - some vanilla, and root beer. Mouthfeel is thick enough but not a highlight. Would make a decent winter warmer. Interesting to say the least.

22 oz bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a clear amber/caramel color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, vanilla, hazelnut, light spices with a mild earthy bitterness.

This spiced ale pours a medium orange color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is caramel, sweet and spicy. A medium bodied ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, with lots of caramel flavors. The hops are earthy and spicy. Very smooth tasting. The spices tend to match and not clash with the malts in this beer. Nice. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

jredmond (5260) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Draft at Trappeze Pub with Linh, Scarlett and Dad. Pours a light amber body with light lacing. Aroma is full of spice and sweet malt, and nothing else really. Mouthfeel is medium to light, somewhat dull with not a lot of flavor jumping out. Some muted hop character in the back, covered by lots of spice, malt, bread and toast

Bomber to taster (shared by Tmoney99). Looks good; a mostly transparent amberish orange with off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells sweet and malty with notes of toffee and light spices. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Thanks to Paul for sharing this at a recent tasting. Currently the #1 Winter Warmer. Served in a snifter. Pours a nice caramel color with a really light head. Doesn’t really stick around too long and only leaves a spot or two of lacing. The nose is loaded with vanilla, though it smells somewhat like extract. There’s also a bit of caramel and malty sweetness. The taste is more vanilla plus some caramel. Not much else, though it’s fairly nice. Beer has a medium body and finishes quite dry. Not terribly complex and not all the winter warmery, but pretty good. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-28-2011
