Brown, no head. Smells like apple, cinnamon, and some other vaguely "winter" spices. Taste is, I donít know, Wassail? Maybe? Lots of heavy, fruity and spicy flavors.

Pours a dark brown with a fleeting white head. Taste is very cinnamon forward with a bit of hop bitters. Worth a try. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle. Attractive ruby-amber body. Thin, eventually oily off-white head. Big spiced aroma. A pretty spot on cinnamon forward winter beer. big and sugary, but also has some really rich malt tones. A solid, hefty Winter Ale. Classic, clean stuff.

Great nose and weird spice flavors (cinnamon) mostly that bring you into an OK flavor and ok palate for the ABV. Overall a cool winter beer!

BVery (8065) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Bottle from Lizardville Rocky River. Murky amber pour with a frothy white head. Mostly molasses in the nose and taste, but the cinnamon is there in subtle fashion. Decent fuller palate. Not bad.

Block (1756) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Kind of strange. Seemed to have a weird mixture of spices. Didnít sit real well with me.

Deep amber color with a short lived off white head. Spicy nose with cinnamon and sugar. This is a good example of a spiced Christmas ale. Molasses and white sugar sweetness with lots of cinnamon toast taste. Maybe a little too sweet, but very appropriate for the season.

.Pours clear amber with a medium tan head. Aroma has notable cinnamon and mild sweet fruitiness. Flavor has lots of cinnamon and some sweet malts and fruitiness...vanilla and molasses add levels of sweetness to cut the cinnamon...tastes a bit like a dessert but bitters late. Mouthfeel is medium/full and the finish is bitter and dry with lingering vanilla cinnamon.
