maxwelldeux (3542) - Everett, Washington, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a moderately thin head. Nose is a bit spicy with those winter spices. Spices really come through in the taste, too. Easy to drink, just seems like a run-of-the-mill winter ale.

GranvilleTim (1467) - Granville, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2012
Orange-yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is nutmeg and ginger. Taste is a nice balance of ginger and nutmeg with the malt. Nice lacing. A nice first beer to try from this company.

jonas (5614) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 7, 2012
Bottle. Christmas spices and nuts in the aroma. Cloudy orange amber, low golden head. Mellow mouthfeel, medium body. Slightly sticky, spices are a bit cloying at first, light fruit, a bit mealy. Not my cup of tea.

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 10, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a two finger soapy white head that lasts. Aroma of orange peel, coriander, caramel, and toast. Taste has strong citrus, coriander, biscuit and caramel malt, and faint grassy notes. The body is medium with lots of creaminess and a very smooth finish.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2012 Poured from a bottle. Dark copper color with small head. Smell of Malta and spice. Reminded me of Christmas. Nutmeg, honey, spice. Smooth beer. Worth trying again in Winter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DiarmaidBHK (3386) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2012
Bottle from total wine sterling. Pours apricot with a thin white head. Slight note of honey on the nose. Thin mouthfeel. Slight hint of hop dryness on the finish. Disappointed. I was expecting something bigger and more flavorful.

Mmmm have had this beer for a while. Tried it tonight. Liked it. Drank it while attempting to install a microwave/take down a oven hood. Ended up shocking myself. Guess you gotta turn the power off. Good times.

PorterPounder (5451) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz bottle. Slightly murky dark golden pour - fluffy white head that leave plenty of lacing. Aroma is reminiscent of a ginger bread cookie. Flavor has some horehound candy notes, and some gingerbread. Mouthfeel has a nice creaminess to it.

BVery (6076) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Bottle. Orange pour with a small soapy white head. Nose is cinnamon, clove, and tea. Medium palate. Taste is graham cracker, holiday spices, and a bit of vegetal character.

jmohno (1059) - Iowa, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Poured into a stone pint glass golden orange,obvious bottle condition with yeast floaties,moderatemedium carbonation. thin head but frothy ring. Weak aroma of mild hop possibly but probably spice.Slight breadyness/malt. Taste is a typical pale clean crisp light carmel,sweetness,mild breadyness,spice is an obvious flavor and fairly major for taste with ginger and clove it seems slight cinnomon maybe not.Yeah some peppery ginger.Kind of a roasty finish with the bittering maybe just a mild harshness from the spices thoughFinishes mildly bitter but with spices more.Not bad for a spiced ale,not one of my favorates from them.
