12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Appearance is a clear ruby-amber color with basically no head. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and other holiday spices. Absolutely fantastic. Taste mostly follows the nose. The spices are a bit too intense, but it is still delicious. As Christmas a beer as I’ve ever had.

Very spicy aroma. Spicy, full but not heavy. Punchy, crisp. Nutmeg, cinnamon, mint, clove, and malt.

Smells of fig malty and a bit bitter. Taste is full flavored and balanced. Fig and some spice, maybe nutmeg?? Toasted malt flavor with spice. Enjoyable winter beverage. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alcohol stands out in the aftertaste, though figs are a nice touch. The red (Christmas tree light) color of this beer is almost worth the purchase alone.

A very full beer with an explosion of tastes happening. Definitely all of the holiday spices present here. A really interesting beer that you will want to sip and enjoy slowly, just like the holidays. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 Ounce Bottle; Pour is a one finger, modest off white / fine bubbled head into this glass - retention is fairly poor here, however , but it does provide a nice, clear ruby coloration in the typical christmas feeling. The nose is spruce tips, nutmeg, spice, and sweetbread, I suppose. The flavor profile provides pine and spruce initial, moving to cranberry and fruit cake - nutmeg and cinnamon spice, with a lingering bitterness - This was a nice experience - not a mind blower.

Miked1687 (606) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 10, 2013
pretty Ruby red pour with an off white head. Nose is sweet cranberry, spice, nutmeg. Taste is all holiday spice. Really sweet and it almost tastes like a holiday wreath. Honey finish, ginger bread cookies. Not bad, but it’s intense. Couldn’t drink too much of it.

Great beer for the cool weather. ’cellared’ this one, don’t think I did to much as far as maturing. But still as good as I remembered from last winter. Spicy, warming, and good drinking

Xmas in July, so very appropriately Xmas beer. Dark Brown, Rather Small Head, Leaves Some Lacing. Clove, Spice Aroma. Tastes sweet, Fig, Raisins. Clove, Caramel, Malt. Reminds me of Goose Island Christmas Ale. Real Nice. Recommended.
