Time to indulge with this rich winter porter! Spiked with seasonal spices like cinnamon, all-spice and nutmeg and aged on oak chips that provide a sutle vanilla flavour and aroma. we hope you enjoy this special limited edition holiday treat!

Lagerboy (1255) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2013
Bomber. Clear deep dark amber brown, fading foamy tan head. Aroma is dark roast and sweet spices. Surprisingly lighter roasted malt taste, lots of sweet baking spices, sweet dark fruitiness and vanilla, with some subtle woody herbal hops hiding in there. Soft carbonation, light-medium bodied, low hopped. Sours a bit as it warms, verging on cloying. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

CapFlu (4548) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2013
Lasting foamy white head atop a deep red brown body. Nose of cinnamon and Chinese 5-spice. Flavour of root beer and nutmeg. Interesting but too spiced, too sweet. Okay.

BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2013
In two words... Smooth and Spiced. Deliciously spiced porter. The cinnamon and nutmeg are quite present. Perfect for a cold winter day.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 7, 2013
Dark brown color with small compact head. The aroma is dusty, stale pond water. There is some flavor of roasted malt and light flavor of chocolate, but also a strong dusty character, soil, pond water, then mild spices, roasted nuts, nutmeg. Ordinary bitterness.
Not totally bad, but confused.

JHunter (676) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2012
Pours a black with a brownish hue. The head is thick brown colour which leaves a nice lacing on the glass. aroma is very light spice and a hint of chocolate and roasted malts. The flavour is spices nutmeg and light all-spice with a light vanilla in the finish. its dry on the palate with a decent bitterness in the finish.
