Served with cinnamon and sugar on the rim of the glass. This helped to cut the bitterness of the finish. Amber in color. Nutmeg, cinnamon, and clover aroma. Festive!

The clove really came through on this beer. With a wintery aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg, and a flavor of clove and spice, this makes any holiday merry.

On draft at Issac’s. Thanks to Bob Clark. Amber pour witha dominant cinamon, spice and nutmeg aroma and taste. It has a warming finish, but it was a tad thin. Overall, not bad.

750 ml bottle from michael-pollack- thanks, Pollack! Pours a cloudy brownish amber with a fairly large off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, ginger, brown sugar, toast, berries, apples, and nutmeg. Flavor of caramel malts, apples, berries, toasted brown sugar, and ginger. Light-medium bodied, with high carbonation and a fruity mouthfeel. Pretty nice winter ale.

TheEpeeist (3441) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2011
On tap at Mad Mex. Clear burgundy brown with a thin beige head. Nose is cinnamon, nutmeg and toffee with faint hops. Medium light with a soft tingle. Taste is gingerbread, toffee, hints of cherry and plum. I like the restrained spicing and at 5% easy to have a few.

Draft pours dark amber with thin tan head. Aroma of breaded malts and spices. Flavors of dark fruits (raisins), nutmeg, cinnamon, and coriander with a nice warm (ETOH) finish. Similar to Mad Elf but better depth of flavors.
