Benzai (9439) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle @ ZZT XI. Clear amber color, small off-white head. Smell and taste herbs, spices, cinnamon, sweet, lightly caramel, wood. Decent body and carbonation. Compared to the regular version this is way better. It’s drinkable. But it is a herb, spice mostly cinnamon bomb.

(bottle - 22 oz - 2012 vintage) Dark copper pour with a thin white head. Huge spice and caramel aroma. Lots of caramel and a very mild spice in the flavor, and I was pretty sure I could detect some coconut hints in there as well. Big malt bomb with some light spice.

ICEatALAMO (1066) - Troy, Michigan, USA - DEC 26, 2014
PvW bottle. The pour is a light brown, lighter than I was expecting. The aroma is all holiday spice. The taste is a perfect blend or spice and bourbon. I get a lot of cinnamon. Very impressed with this beer, whether holiday or not.

Elég ha elcsípünk pár illatmolekulát a bohókás karácsonyi címkéjű üvegben szunnyadó főzet kitöltése során, s tudni fogjuk: a tengerentúlon értenek hozzá, hogyan kell tartalommal megtölteni a "karácsonyi sör" kifejezést. Nem tudom megállni, hogy ne említsem ehelyütt a Play-Doh játékgyurma semmivel össze nem téveszthető illatát, amit ebben sörben a fahéj, szegfűszeg, szerecsendió keblünkre ölelhető aromái képeznek le. Napokig elszaglászhatnánk az italt, betelni akkor sem tudnánk vele. Isteni scotch benyomások, a whiskey-hordóban történő érlelés legjavát nyújtják a kezdeti pikáns zamatok. Sütőtökös pite, bejgli, dió, mazsola ünnepi hangulatai járják be szánknak minden egyes szegletét, páratlanul izgalmas kortyok által megfestett, fűszeresen vibráló ünnepi ínyencségként ejti rabul ízlelőbimbóinkat.

hopscotch (9896) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle (2013 - Silver Cap)... Clear brown pour with ruby highlights and no head. The lush, malty aroma is heavy on the cinnamon and nutmeg with an undercurrent of other spice rack excellence. Medium to full-bodied with lazy carbonation. The flavor furnishes caramel and toffee sweetness interwoven with cinnamon and nutmeg spiciness. Finishes bittersweet and, of course, spice-rack spicy. Very enjoyable. The barrel really helps this beer. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!
