Quick3Beers (633) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 24, 2015
Pours a copper from a bottle, thin quickly dissipating head. Aroma of caramel, cherry cough syrup, clove. Flavor very similar, but heavier on the clove and the cough syrup is mostly a boozy syrupiness. Good beer.

altonbrownd (4817) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - DEC 15, 2015
Bottle from Beer and Wine. Dark amber body with faint tan head. Nose is sweet, spicy, peppery. Taste is alcy, malts, caramel, spices. Quite refresing and clean texture. Peppery and cookies in the finish. Enjoyable.

tekstr1der (289) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Dark amber pour with almost no head. Aroma is overpowering coriander, nutmeg, citrus rind with a hint of cinnamon. Flavor is the same - wish I could taste fig since I love fig - but no, just a pile of spices I don’t much care for. As with other ST flavored brews, they go to the extreme with flavoring. This one’s not for me.

monk191 (1549) - California, USA - DEC 7, 2015
Another nice Southern Tier beer. Like a sweet Belgian Amber, with lots of vanilla, Kahlua and some pumpkin. Nice deep Amber. Had on tap at Rattle N Hum.

bhensonb (13228) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Bottle from jredmond. Pours clear copper with slight beige head. Aroma is juniper and mixed spice. Med body or so. Flavor is mixed - sort of pie spice mixed with twigs and/or juniper. Hence a bit woody. Interesting stuff.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2015
Pours a dark copper/chestnut brown color with mahogany edges and a half finger off-white head that immediately fades into a very thin ring. Not much in the way of lacing. Complex aroma with lots of sweet malt and zesty, earthy spice. Potpurri like aroma with flower petals, cinnamon, brown sugar, clove and allspice followed by caramel malt cherry and dark fruit notes. There’s event a peppermint like presence. I don’t know how Southern Tier does it but this beer smells just like XMas, creating an olfactory sensation that triggers childhood memories. Crazy! Medium bodied with tight carbonation and a heavy spice presence that’s countered by sweet malt, dark fruit and a medicinal syrupy flavor. This medicinal flavor tends to be overwhelming in holiday beers it’s kept in check here by the other characteristics. Lots of cinnamon, pepper, allspice and clove along with cherry cough drop and other dark berries. Slight alcohol sweetness but the high ABV is well masked with little to no heat. A little heavy on the spices but it’s a pretty good holiday beer that’s easy to drink.
