Bottle. Pours medium brown with red highlights and a fine-grained, thin, off-white head. Nose is clove, cinnamon, and cardamom, especially the last; smells like Scandinavian pastry. Sweet and malty on the tongue, again with the cardamom at the forefront; bitter roast and clove/cinnamon acridity closes in after, cutting the rich sweetness nicely. Finish is dry and smoky, still with the spices predominant. It’s not something I’d drink a lot of, but it’s a really, really nice variant on the usual holiday brew.

The taste of the orange peel and fig really comes through in a pleasant way. One of the better xmas ales.

DiarmaidBHK (3161) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine Sterling. Pours brown with a thin khaki head. Doesn’t leave much lacing. Smells like Christmas cheer. It’s like mistletoe and bakers spices on the tongue. Finishes clean. Hides the alcohol well. This one’s pretty damn good.

Bottle. Dark amber, with bubbly head. Aroma is cinnamon with some citrus or cardomman tones. Effervescent and spicy. Sparkly and sweet were surprising. Expected darker and maltier, but happy with how this works. Finishes a bit dry and off balanced, but overall very good and interesting.

On tap at Tap 42, Ft Lauderdale, pours a deep brown amber. Nose is cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and wintergreen. Taste is deeply spiced with the aforementioned aroma notes and sweetly so. Finish is long and ends on the same wintery spices. Quaff Score 7 / 10

On tap at Tap 42. Pours brown with a tan head and aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste is of spices - cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and caramel with a spicy finish. Very nice winter brew, nice Christmas spices

Aroma is full, lots of ginger, nutmeg, clove. There is a hint of sugar as well. Appearance is somewhere between amber and brown, little head but I would say light tan. Taste is...different. All of the spices hit at the end, while the beginning is sort of a mess of many flavors with not one in particular standing out. Ginger, nutmeg, and clove are very apparent at the end, and it’s a pretty spicy finish. Mouthfeel is pretty good, edging on thick but it’s just missing something. Overall, I’m not completely disappointed, but this could be better.

On tap at Brewvolution. Brown pour with a white head. The aroma has a good bit of toffee and cinnamon to it. The flavor, on the other hand, tastes like a Christmas tree. I get a huge amount of juniper and pine as well as some allspice and cinnamon. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
