750ml bottle from Broue ha ha in Gatineau, Quebec. Orange-brown in colour with a thin white head, light lacing. The aroma is of spices, dark fruits, cloves and candy. The flavour is very spicy, some candy. Spicy mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes with more spice. A straight forward spicy Christmas beer.

750ml bottle. Clear reddish copper body, medium to small beige head, average retention, poor lacing. Aroma of yeast, herbal hops, bitter herbs, autumn leaves, ginger. Sweet taste: tons of caramel malts, ginger, herb liquor, brown sugar, cinnamon cookies, a touch of booze. Lovely.

robinvboyer (3374) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2015
Dark amber/ ruby pour, with a medium off white head. Incredibly earthy aroma. Loads of sweet, brown sugar malts, with alot of spices, and earthy ginger. The finish is light to medium bitter with an intense ginger earthiness, and strong spicy finish. It’s not a spice bomb, but it’s close. Too earthy I find though.....

BrewGoblin (532) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JAN 1, 2015
I am a guy who likes his over-the-top ol’ timey, horse-drawn sleigh, Jack Frost nipping at your nose, tree decorating revelry, vintage Christmastime charms. This beer is that feeling a bottle. With a crystal clear reddish copper body and an off white lacing-machine on top, bold whiffs of fresh cut pine, oranges baked with cloves, spiced cider, dark fruitcake, boozy eggnog and gingerbread cookies, who could ask for more? Although some booze is present (you’d be a fool to think that at 11.3% it wouldn’t be), it takes a backseat to the prominent Old World Christmas flavours that are blended seamlessly. A light syrupy, mid bodied texture mingles with mid carbonation for a warming and joyful sipper, embracing the last vestiges of the Yuletide as a year anew unfolds.

Metalchopz (2517) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2014
Pours a hazy deep amber colour with a warm foamy cap, average stay and some decent wavy thin-creamy lace. The taste is good, but pretty sweet overall. Great aromas of cinnamon, ginger and other spices. Spices in the flavours with the very sweet malts. A little too sweet. Love the spices, but wish the mouthfeel was a little less syrupy and sweet.

shorlin (716) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Pour is a perfect deep reddish copper with a barely off white head and superb lacing. Aroma is a mix of Christmas tree and gingerbread. Taste is sweet, but with that well rounded Christmas experience. Feel is full, yet refreshing and a little creamy. Really an interesting beer.

guil0000 (287) - New Brunswick, CANADA - DEC 12, 2014
Pours a copper Reddish color with a pretty nice white head. Nose is mostly cloves with some pine and also some cinnamon and ginger (Gingerbread). Sweet on the palate and the alcohol lingers in a little. You also get a lot of the spices. Pretty well made beer I like it!
