Bottle. Colour...hazy amber with a thick head. Nose...very spicy! Especially, sweetly spicy and teeming with pie spice. Palate...interestingly tangy and heavily spicy with a big emphasis on cinnamon and ginger. The finish is looooong and dry.

Smells like cinnamon and other festive spices. Tastes like holiday spices like a pumpkin ale. Cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and sweetness.

Reddish or dark orange pour from 12oz bottle at home. White sticky head. Smells like spicy apple cider. Spicy fruit, tart, berry, and tasty.

Bottle from rosskyle. Light copper with thick bubbly white head. Really nice spice aroma that features dark spice. Soft resin and light hop with well balanced spice throughout. Finishes fast and clean for a spice beer. A little bit of funk as well. Pretty good.

Cloudy bronze color. Smells like an mix of a Belgian ale with a hint of Apple. Not very spicy. Reminds me of a Trappist. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brown color, lacing head that mostly fades quickly. Aroma has a fair amount of clove and cinnamon. Flavor is kind of a mess; boozy, sweet brown sugar and light spice, but the hops are in there too. It reminds me of a barleywine. I wasn’t crazy about this beer.

ARH (911) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 9, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2015 12oz bottle, poured into a belgian tulip glass. Toffee is the initial aroma picked up, followed by a quickly rising then fading roasted note. Aromas of citrus, faint cake batter, and cinnamon and allspice come through in a second wave with a note of ginger that?s hidden in there. It?s aroma is mostly caramel by the end, with hints of wood. It?s a murky, yet effervescent orange-copper with a big, foamy, off-white head that reduces to foamy, soapy, and thick ring with large creamy island hoovering around the fuzzy surface, and a good, dense sheet lace along the glass. The taste is a balanced medium bitter and medium sweet. It?s creamy with a prickly carbonation, and a full body with notes of caramel, cinnamon, oranges, allspice, and ginger as it warms. There?s a warm alcohol note and juicy, sweet zest at the finish which quickly turns spicy and oaky with alcohol warmth. It?s crisp and leaves an aftertaste that?s a little dry, slightly astringent, and lingers with spiced apples, bread crust, and oak.

Bottle thanks to adnielsen ! Pours a rich amber color with two fingers of eggshell foam. Nose is warm spiced fruitcake, hint of banana, and some soft toasted malt and caramel. Palate is bready and soft. Nice layers of spice mingle with some toasted sweet malt, composted fruit and a tight little bitterness on the backend.

Dragonfly1 (498) - Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Pours a clear caramel brown. Sweet rich aroma of cinnamon dried cherries and spice cake. Layered complex taste, hot at the finish. Caramel, almond, just sweet enough without being cloying. Pine needle at the finish. Bitter aftertaste. Body is perfect combination of sweet richness and just enough carbonation for balance. this is just terrific, perfect Winter Ale. Great work
