jefcon (1377) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Lots of spice. Lots of sweet. Ginger, nutmeg, clove, candy sugar, alcohol, and candied fruit. A bit much, but that is what 2XMas is for, I suppose. Share this one.

jmm635 (855) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Pours reddish brown with minimal head. Ridiculous amount of spice on the nose and tongue. Way overdone in my opinion. Tastes like someone added half a Pumking to my beer.

AndyW68 (1056) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Pours reddish brown with gold edges. Has a weak pale head and little carbonation. Aroma was pleasant of nutmeg but not overwhelming. Nutmeg and cinnamon hits you first, then a hoppy bitterness spreads back over the tongue. One is good on a cold night with a fire. Two is to much for me. I would drink again, but only on occasion.
