Surprisingly golden color with a noticable lager-ish aroma (which isn’t overbearing). Nice lacing down my glass as this thing boasts a creamy taste. Spices are evident, much more so as the brew adjusts to room temp. I enjoy the slight pepperiness in the background. Definitely an interesting holiday brewski.

Brown, loose white head. Smells like chestnut and pine. Flavor is nutty and piney, with some cinnamon and nutmeg. Not bad.

Aroma is rich malts, cinnamon, fig, spice and molasses. Taste is sweet and almost chewy mouthfeel. Pretty rich flavors similar to aroma. The spiciness and cinnamon in particular come through. Light caramel and fig. Appearance is an orange /amber with a thin pearl creamy head that retains fairly poorly.

Lots of spices but well balanced and not overwhelming. Reminds me of pfeffernüsse cookies.

brokensail (11371) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 3, 2014
On tap @ Moylans. Light amber colored pour with a white head. Really spicy aroma, which lives up to the billing. Clove, coriander, and cinnamon dominate. Lots of orange, too. Decent malt character of bread and toast. Moderate sweetness on the palate. Some caramel, bread, and toast. Spicy all the way through. Big coriander and cinnamon. A touch peppery on the finish. Some bitter orange notes as well. Kind of like it.

650ml brown bottle. Clear amber colour, fizzy tan head. Nose has toasted malts, dark breadiness, a little spice as well. Taste has bready malt and grain with late notes of pepper and light cinnamon. Dry finish with some lingering grainy notes and coriander in aftertaste. A nice winter brew, a good alternative to the usual Belgian and winter warmer type holiday beers.

dfearnley (1048) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle to pint glass Lots of spice on the nose, predominantly clove, mace, pepper, and cinnamon. I also get some toasted malt. The colour is a clear deep amber and it has a long lasting thin tan head. There are lots of spices in the taste as well, but mace is easily the strongest, but I can make out coriander as well. I can’t say that I taste the pepper, but there is a slight warmth on the palate.

Not exactly my cup of tea with a heavy spice profile and mild hops and malts. A brigth yellowish amber appearance with a peakosh yellow head. Bit of sweet caramelized malt and light honey. Spices linger hard and thoroughly.
