I poured it from the can into a pint glass. It pours a reddish brown color with a nice head and some lacing. The aroma is spice and fruit. The taste is fruit, spice, bread, and alcohol. It tastes like Christmas. It’s not too sweet. I thought this was pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2015 edition. Small head, some lacing.Aroma is malty with some spice. Taste is lightly sweet with some general notes of spice as well as brown sugar. Medium bodied beer with average carbonation. Overall nice holiday ale. Enjoyed it. May not stay fresh long as can seems rather chinsy, like it is scotch taped together.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2014 version. 12oz can. Filtered amber body. Foamy beige head. Fruitcake cinnamon-ginger-allspice aroma. Big fruit, spice...but I kind of dig it in this one. The malt complements it well enough. Spiced Winter Warmer with some Wee Heavy undertones. Well made, enjoyable for what it is.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Christmas spice, pine, hop, plum and raisin aroma. Smooth beer for 7%. Surprising at that. Very carbonated, medium-light bodied, hops add a little bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at AC Beerfest (2014). (Assuming this was the 2013 vintage) Poured a clear amber color with a small foamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and holiday spices. Taste mimics the nose with lots more cinnamon coming through.

Canned version for 2013 holiday season. Poured copper color, with a light haze and a 1-finger off-white head. Aroma of spices mixed with stone fruit. Medium body with a light dryness to the finish. Flavor is nutty with spices and a fruity note at the back. The spices linger in the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp amber coloured body with a thin fast-dying tan head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, raisins, figs, plums and some toasted malt. Medium-bodied; Assertive nutty and earthy flavour with a lot of pit fruits and some good toffee notes. Aftertaste shows hints of light spices like cloves, nutmeg and canella and only a touch of sweetness - the rest is earthy malt notes. Overall, a nicely spiced beer with perhaps too strong of a malt and earthy flavour. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 30-November-2013 for US$1.79 sampled at home in Washington on 04-January-2013.
