12oz bottle. Pours mahogany color, tan head. Nice lacing. Aromas of dried dark fruits, loads of Orange Peels, some spice. Tastes of spice. Cinnamon, clove, orange peel, dried fig. Very nice holiday spice. Overall it reminds me of holiday spiced Glögg. Merry XMAS 2012. (3561)

Damico (2580) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Pours dark amber mostly clear with a beige head. The aroma is strong, sweet, and brings plenty of Christmas spices so pleasant in the nose with notes of cinnamon, almost apples as well. The flavor brings sweet clovey Christmas flavored malts, which would mean the spices of the season for anyone who wants to criticize my descriptions for lack of something better to do. The flavor ends a bit bitter but smooth overall.

KornDogg (530) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Bottle. Strong aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg. Dark amber body with thin dissipating head. Flavor is dominated by spices; nutmeg, cloves, ginger, hints of orange peel, malts and brandy. A dryer beer, interesting flavor.

GSH1976 (207) - Delaware, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Pours a clear and very dark ruby color. Aroma is dominated by spices but nutmeg and cloves are the most noticeable. Alcohol is evident as it warms. Taste follows the nose with some malt presence although the spice taste is not as strong as the aroma led me to expect. The body is medium and there is not a lot of carbonation. An interesting beer but I am not a fan of the spices.

shadey (1902) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 22, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours a deep garnet red with virtually no head. Aroma is majorly spiced - which I suppose I should have expected from the 2x label. Cloves and other holiday spices dominate. There is some sweet malt as well. Flavors are also dominated by the spices - especially in the finish and the lingering aftertaste. It seems to fit the style and the goal of the beer, but not really my style or preference for a holiday brew.

joebudzjoe (667) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Draft @ Monster B’s. Pours a dark ruby, this beer has an instant pumpkin spice scent upon sipping. Along with these scents, there is a dry pine hop flavor with faint lavender notes as well. Medium-bodied and not too difficult to put down.

ICEatALAMO (940) - Troy, Michigan, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Draft. The pour is a vibrant amber with a frothy head. The aroma is very strong of christmas spices, cinnamon, ginger. The taste is exactly the way it smells. A very solid christmas ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
