From tap. Pours a nice amber/red color with a slightly off white head. Smells like pine trees and figs. Very smooth on the front side going tangy in the middle. Finishes creamy and smooth. Aftertaste is only slightly bitter. Tastes like christmas at home. One of my favorite american holiday brews.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle:   Deep ruby, thin frothy beige head, dies quickly, little lacing.   Strong clove and allspice... and I mean strong.   Spicy start, clove, gingerbread, and allspice.   Could pass as a Pumpkin Beer.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finish is extremely spicy.   Almost too much in fact.   This one was just an over abundance of spices that made it hard to finish even a 12oz bottle.   Very bright spiciness is nice, but this one was over the top spicy.

12 oz. bottle poured into shaker. Pours clear ruby color with a fleeting off-white head. Spicy aroma with notes of candied fruit, orange, coriander and clove. Flavor follows suit with some lingering bitterness and a slightly warming alcohol finish. I’ve never had Glögg, but I may need to correct that.

Bottle. Pours a clear, copper color with a thin, laced head. Strong spices. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and figs. Strong, spicy flavor. Not hot spice. But a mixture of spices. A lot going on here. Alcohol is masked. Very good holiday ale.

12oz bottle pours a clear brown color with a medium off white head that leaves light lacing. Smell of dark fruit and spices. Tastes of the same things. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with good carbonation. Pretty good beer. It reminds me of a Christmas cookie.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle. Awesome aroma of dark fruit, spruce, fruit cake, nutmeg and other spices. Big, filling mouthfeel. Finishes with warming alcohol candied fruit sweetness. Aftertaste has a spruce-tip like bitterness. Cool, unique beer that to me represents exactly the type of beer I’m looking for in a Christmas-time seasonal.

ESPh (128) - Branchburg, New Jersey, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Strong aroma of clove, nutmeg, allspice that is almost too much. Deep ruby color; head disappears a few minutes after the pour. Warm alcohol but not too strong. Good for sipping. Would be a good with a dessert. Worthwhile trying.

fuelvolts (2) - Texas, USA - DEC 22, 2013 does not count
Good beer. Unusual style, couldn?t resist trying it. Not an everyday drinker. Harsh on the nose. Lots of alcohol burn in flavor and smell. Tastes very good though. Appearance gets knocked down as it is cloudy.

Bebum (785) - USA - DEC 22, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2014 Dark amber, cloudy sometimes, tall, short-lived head with little lacing. Intense, very resiny, spicy and herby nose. Medium body, silky mouthfeel, rich, long palate. Mild to moderately bitter which dominates its taste despite a lot of sweetness, Assertive taste of sweet spices, lasting to the finish, malty, more hops than expected. Very characterful, true to the name and satisfying but not for everyone.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Mahogany-cherry amber colored pour with a quick lasting off-white fizzy head. The spices in the aroma include a big dose of ginger and nutmeg, clove and allspice. Light hop note. Medium body. The booze tends to kick in more in the taste than on the nose along with the ginger and peppery spices. The finish lingers and ends dry.
