Pours a dark amber color with a off-white head and some lacing. Aroma of fruit, nutmeg, bit of cinnamon, caramel and spice. Taste of of fruit, orange, caramel sweetness, cinnamon, nutmeg and spice. mild bitterness and finish that is quite dry with a bit of lingering spices. Medium body, rich texture and well balanced. No trace of the 8% ABV, just a subtle warming feeling. Good beer that goes well with the Christmas season.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer certainly needs to get a little praise. The aroma smells like plum sugar candy with a perfect malty nutmeg finish. The taste is like drinking a sugar plum candle. The 8% alcohol is exceptionally hidden and the warmth of the finish is both soothing and wantingly inviting. Perfect finish with a perfect palate.
One that cant be missed if you have the opportunity to drink it!

The taste of the nutmeg and clove spice come through very strong but is in no way overpowering. Taste of the season for sure.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer smells a lot like this same brewery’s pumpkin ale due to the cinnamon and nutmeg but adds something new due to the dough yeast, and the appearance is a clear auburn color with a small off-white head that fades quickly. The taste is really indulgent as a result of the high spice level, slight sourness, slight sweetness, and a touch of umami, and the palate complements it nicely with the oily texture, medium body, soft carbonation, and a long finish that is an extension of the taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle compliments to Queenholly. As I popped the cap I could smell the spices. Nothing like a little Christmas in February! Nice amber pour with thick fluffy head that fizzled and slowly died. Nose is clove, spice and caramel. The orange peel is the main spice I get followed by nutmeg and cinnamon with light toffee notes from the malt. Lightly dry finish. I like that this brewer took a slightly different take on a spiced brew. Reminds me a bit of spiced cake. It drinks like a 5 % brew. Overall, I enjoyed this.

Pouts amber with little white head. Aroma is sweet malts, Clove, ginger, citrus. Taste is like it smells with more sweet and less spice, a little alcohol on the aftertaste. Not bad, but their pumpkin is better
