3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Red-amber with tan head, not much lace.
Aroma is Cloves, Nutmeg...Flavour is the same, cinnamon also,,,VERY sweet. You can almost feel the individual grains of sugar. Itís a Christmas cookie in a glass. Grows a little boozy as it warms....2011 Edition is rated 9.5ABV, but it comes across leaner than that even warm....well hidden. A Nice winter special.

Aroma is cinnamon and spice. Malty with a caramel and nut flavor in conjunction with sweetness and spice. A touch of hops in the finish. Strong and full bodied.

I knew exactly what was getting into as soon as took the first whiff. Is it sweet? yes, it is. Is it heavy? Yes, it is that, also. Does it become cloying and undrinkable about halfway through the bottle? Why, yes, yes it does. It does smells nice, however.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2012 One of the best smelling beers Iíve had, itís very tasty and thick with tons of spices. It tastes like they shoved pumpkin pie and gingerbread cookies in a beer form. The honey isnít too prominent but I do agree it balances the malt taste and makes for a very smooth feel on the tongue (especially on the finish). The alcohol is masked perfectly where it isnít overwhelming. I would buy it again if I want a very "pumpkin spicy" type beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a pint glass.
3.0 A: Lightly hazed dark orange amber color. Just half a finger of frothy beige head that fell quickly, leaving no lacing.
4.0 S: Very nice mix of spices. Nutmeg stands out the most, followed by cinnamon and honey. Clove adds that extra something to really make this a great spice blend. Orange is somewhere underneath. Malts give a pleasant caramel aromas. Quite clean overall.
4.5 T: I didnít expect a lot from a brewery that Iíve never heard of, but it appears that this is a sleeper. I have to say this is the best winter warmer Iíve had this year. Spices follow the nose and as an added bonus, the cinnamon isnít strong enough to add that goofy flavor that cinnamon tends to add. Caramel maltiness with a slight graininess. Again, quite clean allowing the malts and spices to do their thing.
4.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Very creamy given the body. Super smooth.
4.5 D: Iím going to have to look for this next year. I only wish I drank this a few weeks ago when I first bought it so I could buy some more. Very good example of the style.

1/18/12. 12oz bottle thanks to PorterPounder! Clear amber/red pour with a small khaki head that fades and barely laces. Stereoptypical holiday spice profiled aroma... meh. Overly sweet, cloying caramel and malt and pumpkin pie spices. Blegh.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Dark orange amber, average off-white head. aroma is heavily spicy, also caramel and orange. Flavours of nutmeg, all-spice, candied ginger, candied orange, dark toffee. Nice creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied. Good balance, absolutely no hint of the potent ABV! I was fully prepared for a weak, watery holiday-spice-clone--- I was totally wrong and pleasantly surprised!
