Very pleasant cinnamon/clove aroma, although in truth it smells more like a candle than a beer. Flavor is milder than I expected given the aroma, with a sweet, bready base, and a sweet, spicy, cinnamon finish. Very good, but a little on the gimmicky side.

hopscotch (9488) - 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!

Yorker (1337) - Herning, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2014
65 cl bottle @ home. Pours hazy brown with quite a bit of sediment and an off-white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are cinnamon, coconut, chocolate, and caramel - with a dry finish.

TheAlum (5909) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle shared at 4th of July BBQ (Lyons, IL). The Pappy Version. Pours a darker brownish ruby hue, copper fiery glow on the edges with some decent haziness in the middle that tapers out. Frothy offwhite head atop stays as a mellow layer, decent lacing and stick around. Aromas show pie spice, cinnamon and firmer ginger meet caramel, touches of caramel, oak and vanillin. Gentle clove and nutmeg meet some whiskey warmth a touch sweet but enjoyable. Initial is a pretty potent mélange of holiday spirit. Touches of cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg meet gentle vanilla, pie spice and caramel show some oomph into the body. Toffee and gentle smoothed out spirit elements work well together. Middle shows a bit more depth, the barrel on full display with vanilla, oak, touches of gingersnaps meeting gentle toasty coconut, some toffee and toastiness. Backend is where this gets a bit warm and harsher, the smoothed out front loses it’s refinement. Finish is dry, a bit warm and spicy as we finish. An interesting beer that certainly offers some enjoyable flavors albeit a bit much for me beyond the small sampling.

djd07 (3868) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2014
Bottle thanks to George! Pours a dark cloudy amber with snall beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong spice, nutmeg, and booze. Medium mouthfeel with a nice spice, light roast with sweet finish. Very good.

Pour from a bottle. Pours dark with tons of Christmas on the nose. Tons of nutmeg, cinnamon, etc. very much a spiced beer, but a very good one.

Bomber as an extra from misterbeer thanks! Pours a hazy dark amber, cinnamon in color. Cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice in the nose - nice. Makes me want a pumpkin pie. Nice spice in the taste. Pumpkin with a malty, bourbon finish.
