Brown color with fizzy tan head. Aroma of fruity malt with some spiciness. Medium bodied, flavor is slightly toasty, fruity with a bitter spicy somewhat dry finish.

An amazing beer that can be bought in the grocery stores of Texas. The spices and seasonings make you feel like your in a log cabin around a fire even when Texas doesn’t offer a winter.

Bottle. I got this one from kaggie97 - thanks! Pours a dark amber with a little cloudiness and no head to speak of. Nose is malty, sweet, leathery with a sweet aroma of brown sugar and butter cooking on the stovetop. Reminds me of Christmas dinner I guess. Malty taste with a little bitterness in the finish, but not much. Actually light to medium bodied in an odd way. Tastes good. Gets better with every drink. Merry Christmas!! Good stuff!

Really solid rendition, great balance and awesome body! Spice is lower for a holiday beer but still stands out as so. Go get some if you can!

Didn’t like this so much. Seems to have some sort of Koelsch yeast maybe? Some popcorn in there with a weak body and not much else going on.

Copper color with very little head. Aroma is light cinnamon, with some cherries and honey. Flavor has some ginger and cinnamon, with honey and caramel sweetness. Light body with lively carbonation. Not out of this world good, but solid. Could use some stronger aromas and flavors.

hillfiiiiire (323) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 6, 2008
There’s a lot of fruity sweetness here in the aroma, but also a mild kick of spicy hoppiness. It’s still plenty malty in the nose though. The flavor is about the same. A nice fruity sweetness with a little bit of spicy hop, but still plenty malty. It marks a nice dry finish. It’s not anything remarkable, but it’s nothing bad. Just bleh.

Nice amber hue, but a poor head and off smell of slight acidity. Uh oh. Some decent toffee notes through this layer of infection, with some added nice spiced cider aromas. Slightly leaning towards cloying, but overall if this weren’t infected would’ve been ok.
