An excellent, warm beer. Body is full, nicely carbonated, spices are apparent on the nose and in the flavor.

Iím a sucker for Belgian styles... And holiday spiced beers... And high gravity yet balanced versions of the previously stated. So yea, if you like those things, this is the business. If you could say Anything bad itís maybe a little light and dry on the palate. Wonderful effort!

Dark amber color with big off white head. Sweet spicy fruit yeast aroma. Rich malt flavor. Some spice and citrus flavor. A little tangy right before the finish. Some alcohol in finish.

12 oz. Lightly hazy, copper-auburn body with a humongous meringue-like foam on top. Aroma of toffee with hints of chocolate, orange, dark fruit and dried grass. Bigger flavors are toffee and raisin liqueur with supporting notes of apple, peppery orange zest, earthy spices and toasted wood. Medium-heavy body is well balanced and has a medium-high carbonation that manages to stay smooth. Spices accentuate rather than dominate this brew. Slick mouthfeel and a nice touch of warmth make for a very nice winter sipper. The best of a dozen brews Iíve had from this mostly overrated brewery.

Poured a deep red with a paper thin cream colored head. Nose is heavy with winter spices and sweet citrus. Taste was unusually sweet at first then a sharp tang if spice and hops at the finish. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark red color with a large head that quickly collapses. Aroma of bananas, orange and yeast. Yeast... holy yeasty flavor. And spice. I think they may have put some spices in here. Very peppery, some orange and a ton breadiness and yeast. And spices. Did I mention spice and yeast? The rest of the advertised spices donít really stand out to me, even after coming up to near room temp. Just a general spicy quality. Really tasty.

This beer pours a deep brown with a thin tan head that dissipates quickly. The aromas are cinnamon, orange, coriander. The mouthfeel is sticky, sweet and has an alcohol warmth. This was a very good beer. Cheers!

Pour is a murky dark brown with a big tan head. Aroma is stellar. Lots of spice, Belgian yeast and a intense brown sugar. Flavor is lots of coriander and spice. Finish has more yeast and a bit of alcohol. Wonderfully flavored beer for a cold winter night. Bonus is that the place i bought this charged me half of what they should have for this beer.

This beer just brings out the best to this style can offer, the spices of coriander, pepper, nutmeg are just constant all the way. The mouth feel is medium heavy with a soapy texture. Carbonation is soft but consistent. Fabulous!0
