Our ever-changing spiced winter seasonal. A tasty brew that complements all your holiday festivities. It is typically malty in body, lightly hopped, and rounded out with spices that we vary from year to year.

Courtesy of captaincougar. Pours mahogany with a thin white ring of bubbles. Smells of spices, caramel, sugar and sweet malt. Taste is of caramel, citrus, spices and some earthy hints. Mouthfeel is thin. Finish is of citrus.

5000 (6335) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Bottle: Garnet in color, fairly dark, moderate foamy beige head, falls quickly leaving spotty lacing.   Heavy carob aroma, that fake chocolate stuff from the 80s, as well as some butterscotch.   Some bready malts in there as well, but also a slight touch of vegetable.   Chocolate malt, as in the old fashion shakes, on the tongue, moderate sweetness.   Hints of molasses and Earl Gray tea as well.   Falls off somewhat quickly.   Little to no hop presense.   Definitely a malt oriented brew.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Take some golden grahams and cocoa pebbles, put them in a bowl with milk... let sit for 20 minutes and then remove the cereal... what you have left is what lingers, milky sludge smarmied with the dressings of breakfast cereal.   Certainly an interesting brew, and spiced in a way I would have never imagined.   Decent, interesting, but not sure I would entertain this one again.   However, it is unique.   Thanks Jim for this one!

HogTownHarry (6322) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2007
Bottle (650ml). Shared with mds and tupalev, my bottle via trade with TURDFERGUSON. Poured fairly deep coppery orange, average head. Sweet aroma, vanilla, root beer, spice, sweet malt, a bit of perfumey hops - a little artificial but pleasing. Even more vanilla in the taste, a little mild bitterness in the finish - average body, a little still, a hint of astringency - nice, softly spicy.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 7, 2007
Clear ruby body topped by a very small white head. Syrupy body with sweet cherries swimming in a brown-sugar cake. Herbal notes adds to an otherwise rather simple sweet beer. While drinking it I knew my taste buds were in familiar territories but I just couldn’t put my finger on it. Then a friend came to the rescue. Dr Pepper. Yes, that’s it. Overall I wasn’t too found of this Dr Pepper flavoured-beer although I actually like Dr Pepper. I also like milk but…

thirdeye11 (5835) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 9, 2009
(1L swing top bottle thanks to ballewblake) Pours a dark chocolate brown with decent head and good lacing. Nose is caramel, sweet corn, and chocolate. Taste is mildly sweet chocolate, finishes with more delicious chocolate, a nice hop balance, creamy and overall very good. A nice surprise.

Pailhead (5800) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of Styles. Aroma of caramel, vanilla. roasted nuts, fruit, and light spices. Pours a dark transparent copper with a small soapy head that quickly fades to a ring. Quick nuttiness and caramel up front is quickly covered up by a vanilla, milk chocolate, butterscotch, and slight ginger finish. Pretty tastey, but probably couldn’t drink more than 12oz or so without it wearing on me.

decaturstevo (5517) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 5, 2008
Deep amber with off white gooey lace and head. Spices and sweet malt dominates the nose with just a hint of hops in there as well. Flavor of ginger/vanilla/oak? Really odd pleasant flavor with a hint of furit maybe cherries. Mouthfeel and carbonation are solid. A really good beer that is full but refreshing. It is safe to say that it is a spicy mama.
