Poured from bottle into shaker glass. Deep clear red copper with a small head that faded to a thin layer of bubbles. Quite a bit of lacing. Aroma is malt, roasty, clove, cinnamon, orange. All those same flavors when tasted. Medium body, somewhat creamy texture, even if a bit thin and watery. Plenty of carbonation. Lingering spicy bitter finish. To date probably the best Christmas/Winter ale I’ve had! I expected lots of spice/flavor and this definitely delivered.

Ambrée/rouge. Nez: épice. Cannelle. Fruité. Raisin sec. Muscade. Gingembre. Sent plus la bière à la citrouille que la Noël. Gâteau au fruit confit. Bouche: caramel. Gâteau. Canne de Noël. Anis. Muscade. Fine amertume. Intéressant.

On tap at 3R6P. Holiday spice aroma, with coriander, allspice, and nutmeg. Light hop component, medium sweet. Deep dark copper amber clear with thin creamy lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. A little warming. Starts moderately sweet with lots of holiday spice flavor, sweet nutty finish. Medium bitterness in the after with lingering spices.

Aroma Is plum, raisin, allspice, coriander, clove. Very festive. Clear brown color with a touch of red. Ashy taste, bitter orange. Good beer, though the aroma sets your expectations high and the flavor disappoints.

Draft. Nice amber color with an off white head. Cinnamon and allspice nose. Cinnamon, sweet dark fruit and I think some pine flavors.

Draught. You need to be in the mood for a spiced beer with this one. Its big and aromatic and full of flavour.

This was a very good holiday beer. Spicy warm sour notes quickly followed by notes reminding me of woody pine and berry. This beer finishes very clean.

12oz bottle from Crossroads Spirits. Pours a clear dark amber color with a finger of frothy khaki colored head. Aroma of oranges, toasted malts, tons of spice (mainly cinnamon), and mild sweet caramel. Taste of overpowering cinnamon and other spices, caramel malt, orange peel, and light citrus. I know the spice is the main focus of this beer, but its too much for my liking.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2014 Bottle poured into tulip glass. Amazing spice aroma from the beginning. Truly a holiday feel from this festive ale. Auburn or mahogany color. Taste doesn’t quite live up to the aroma but malty, bourbon-y prevalence. Falls in line with a lot of the Southern Tier hop-centric collection. Slightly off in the aftertaste but impressed by the aroma. Not quite twice the Christmas...maybe 1.5 times.
