Winter spices fall flat on the tongue, sticky coating on the tongue and metallic finish. Not the best of the winter brews.

ReggieDunlap (3048) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Pours a murky amber with no head. Aroma has some muddled seasonal spicy and slightly doughy. Flavor follows suit...even more muddled...some doughy caramel. Mouthfeel is light/medium and the finish is spiced/bitter and dry.

Dacrza (502) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2012
glassware: Victory nonick...occasion: it’s a cold winter day--enough said...aroma: brilliant floral bouquet: clove and citrus mixed with malts is exciting...appearance: dark orange-brown body with a creamy white head that befits the winter snow outside...palate: creamy, warm rush of thick, full-bodied ale--easily palatable, though...taste: definite plum and marginal spices percolate in the teeth--fulfiiling and appropriate...overall: umlauts are always welcome in a beer’s name, and though they promise BOG taste, this brew delivers seasonably well....

Light brown color, very bubbly. Looks like soda water. Taste is fruity...mainly lemon, orange peel, banana, clove. Spicy and only slightly bitter. Highly drinkable.

cheap (4004) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2011
Had this on tap at the 1 for the road. Looks a little darker than a pale lager, there is just a little tint of brown and orange in there. No head. Smell is gently spicy. Yes, some rude spices in there become more apparent as the session continues. Typical holidy spiced beer. Very little co2 but what is ther is somewhat creamy.

Wow, this beer is not good at all. The flavors are awful! It must be the plums and dates, which I don’t care for in actual food form. I did taste some cinnamon, clove and ginger, which were good. The aftertaste is rather festive, with those good spices coming through in the finish. But the front of the flavors were not appetizing or palateable at all. They threw the beer for a very sour twist. It’s a very good thing I only got one bottle of this from Wegman’s. In fact, the entire bottle may not see my stomach. It may be traveling down the drain.

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2011
bottle... dark amber with a copper tint, bright off white head only leaves a ring... spice nose with lots of allspice, ginger, cinnamon with a caramel backbone, not as bad as most xmas beers... tastes light, a little spice with burnt molasses, too watery... a decent xmas

BillWyce (711) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2011
From notes: pours orangey red-amber with an off-white head. Nice aromas of spice and ginger, maybe some candied fruit too. Smooth, medium-bodied, nice depth. Notes of orange and ginger in the flavor, some spices (maybe cinnamon and clove) linger in the finish.

Enjoyed on tap at the Artful Dodger in Philly. Pours brown a little reddish, tan. Foamy head, smells spicy and a little sour. Taste is also spicy and a little sour. Finishes smooth, a little oaky. Brewery owners were hanging at the end of the bar while we were there enjoying these.
