Unbelievable... The smell is of cinnamon, the taste is spicy, sweet. Truly a wonderful thing. Be careful, the alcohol content is extremely high! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Omg this beer is amaze balls! It’s a Christmas dessert in a bottle. Bottle from Highland Ave. Package. Transparent brown with off white head. Smells of cinnamon and vanilla. Taste of cinnamon, sugar and vanilla. I loved it.

Aroma:Lots of Ginger, Cinnamon, Clove, vanilla, orange. French toast with Syrup. Appearance:Amber, no head, slightly thick and syrupy texture, like southern sweet tea. Not opaque. Taste:Cinnamon, and mulling spices in the foretaste. Slightly sour tang midtaste. Nutty aftertaste, maybe chestnuts. Palate:Very little carbonation. Nice creamyness, nice alcoholic warmth. Tingle from ginger. Overall:This is a fantastic Christmas ale, I taste it and am transported to the hottub in a gingerbread house.

Nice tawny color, tan head with great lacing. This screams holidays. Cinnamon, nutmeg, some rhubarb notes that remind me of a pie, big bold malt notes as well. This brew is awesome.

I’m not a Christmas ale fan, however this beer is fabulous. I love the cinnamon flavor and the fact that it goes down very smooth for a darker beer.

Aroma is very nicely spicy. Very typical mouthfeel for an American style ale. I can't think of a better way to describe it than saying it tastes like Christmas. Solid every year.

Nearly no head on this. Pours on the brown side of amber. Warm pumpkin pie spices in the aroma. Tastes of clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and orange peel. Enough malt that the spices don’t get too wild. Body might be a little light. As it warms, the cinnamon become the most prevalent spice, but there are enough of the others to balance. Hefty booze at 8.6% ABV Another amazing Winter Warmer from Ohio here. Wonderful!

Reddish brown. Minimal head. Aroma of holiday spices (esp cinnamon), cookies. Tastes like a ginger snap, cookies with cinnamon. Spices dont cloy. Very enjoyable.
