kramer (5799) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2016
Can. Pours a clear reddish brown body with a one finger foamy beige head that left some light lace. The nose is a mix of fruitcake, caramel, light spiciness, a bit of alcohol, and a slight cherry like note. The flavor is a little odd, it’s fruity, but I feel like there’s an odd spiciness to this that I can’t quite identify. Finishes with some light peppery alcohol, lingering caramel, toffee, and cinnamon. Medium to full bodied, quite chewy and a little clingy, with minimal soft carbonation. Actually a pretty interesting beer. Not sure that it’s an award winner, but it does have a uniqueness to it.

60minuteman (1312) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Canned. Pours a murky amber, no head. Aroma of malt, candy, makeup, berries and spice. Flavor notes of spice, booze, cherries, clove, yeast and cinnamon. Light and oily texture. Alcohol is very up front and choppy. Not smooth. Lots of spice. Prickly.

Shot (430) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Can. Pours copper with a thin fluffy head. Aromas of caramel malt and spices. Upfront Flavors of cinnamon, caramel, ginger and pumpkin. A bit of cola and mild earthy hops. Slightly sticky mouthfeel. Very sweet beer. The spices are way overdone. A bit too strong for my taste.

Nephilium (1680) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2015
Sweet bready malt aroma, with a touch of cinnamon. Pours a clear amber with hints of red, and a white head. The cinnamon is an overwhelming flavor, crushing anything else in the beer. Medium bodied, with a lingering cinnamon finish. If you like cinnamon bombs, you’ll probably enjoy this more then me.

NikkTwist (2655) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2015
Draft at Moriartys. The 2015 version is rated at 8.1ABV. Fragrant juicy brew. Clear dark red amber pour with a solid off-white head that left lasting wet lace. Slightly burnt blood orange peels. Cinnamon. Black currants. The nose has a few off notes. Band Aid. Nail polish. Juicy syrupy raisins. Glossy caramel plums. Brown sugar malts.

DCLawyer (2520) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - DEC 9, 2015
Can->SA. Clear lite amber with moderate offwhite head. A: pumpkin pie, gingerbread. T: tons of holiday spice, pumpkin, ginger, malt. This must be what Christmas at Walmart would taste like if you could bottle it. Fail.
