Nose is a bit spicy. Flavour is a bit chalky, with very sweet rhythm. The beer’s mood is right on target with the holiday season.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2012 Great aroma, teeming with dark fruits, caramel, and floral hops, which results in a very Christmas-evoking sensation. I even got some Gummi Bear, which just adds to the awesomeness of it. The taste is a bit more one-dimensional, albeit still good, with hops taking the lead and the malt-derived sweet notes in the background. I want to give this another try.

Decent beer enough I guess. Watery copper color, slight white head. Dies off. nose is very fruity with a slight chalkiness that is welcome but not too welcome. Jockstraps dance around my nose...hmmm. Flavors are the same, with a flatness that pervades after each sip. Not too appealing, more appaling than anything else. Ehhh

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.
