Tasted from bottle. Pours a dark ruby amber color with off white head that quickly fades. Huge spice aroma. Lots of what seems to be all spice, nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste is also big on the spices same as the nose with a very balanced caramel malts sweetness and hop bitterness. Pretty complex for a Christmas ale. Medium bodied with a sticky and sweet mouthfeel. One of my favorite Xmas ales. If you like the spicer Xmas ales you'll definitely enjoy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

oakbluff (424) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
pours clear chestnut, min. head- nose is quite pungent from the spices. Definitely not a subtlely spiced beer with the nutmeg especially strong. taste- sweet molasses cookies, gingerbread and of course the nutmeg. Tasty enough but very cloying and best in small doses. Soft on the finish with carbonation on the low side. Not boozy at all but the sweetness still distracts.

Very nice malty aroma with some Christmas spices. The flavor is malty sweet with the spices showing up. The finish is nice and warming. Good sipper.

This is one of my least favorite Hoppin’ Frog beers but its pretty solid nonetheless. The beer is surprisingly dry, but there is a really nice assortment of spices.
