A delicious Christmas beer! I usually donít care for these spiced holiday beers so I wasnít expecting much. Aroma was nice and strong. Heavy spices and notes of caramel. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a one finger off white head. Taste was delicious. Nutmeg and cinnamon were dominant and made the beer taste like a pumpkin beer. Thatís a plus. Roasted malt and caramel come out as it warms. Nice carbonation round the beer out. Very nice!

Aroma of dark fruit and malt. Spices, raisin, cherry, caramel. Not too strong, though. Overall not bad for a winter seasonal type of beer.

Had at the source, received in a pint glass. 3.5 A: Itís dark in here, but I think itís a clear light brown color. Two fingers of creamy tan head. Average retention and a few wisps of lacing are left. 4.0 S: An almost musty sweet nuttiness. Sweet brown sugar with plenty of toastiness and maple syrup. 3.75 T: All of the above flavors but in different proportions. Less sweet than the nose with reasonable complexity. 3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Bity carbonation with moderate creaminess. 3.75 D: Iím a sucker for brown ales and the maple syrup thing does a good job drawing me in. ★ 616 characters DavoleBomb, Dec 21, 2015

Poured from a bottle. Pours a semi-clear mahogany with a thin tan ring. Sweet toffee and roasted malt aroma. Light carbonation. Tastes of caramel, toffee, and candy corn. Smooth, light, and refreshing. Flavors arenít very bold but not overly sweet either. Similar to a light Dunkel. Not great but not bad.

Dark brown pour, some suds. Spice, tree, caramel, molasses, burnt malt. Flavor is the same. A good Christmas blend without being too in your face malty like so many are. A bit minty/herbal in the finish. Nutty too.

12oz bottle. Poured a brown color with an off white head. This one, for me, was all about the spices. Caramel and some nuttiness in there too, but way too much spices for me.
