Daytonbeer (582) - Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Pours brownish red with moderate lacing. Aroma is dominated by spices. Anise, cinnamon, and ginger. Taste is the same. Alittle too spicy for my taste, but still good.

bluejacket74 (1204) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2012
12 ounce bottle, bottled on 10/17/12. Served in a chalice, the beer pours a clear ruby red color with about a quarter inch off-white head that didn’t stay around for too long. Not much lacing. Aroma is sweet and spicy, it smells like ginger, cinnamon, orange peel, candied oranges, figs, and some cloves. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, except that there’s a slight bitterness noticeable. Also, the aroma seems stronger compared to the flavor of the beer. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit slick with moderate carbonation. I think it’s a good overall brew, I know I’ll be enjoying the rest of my 6-pack! $10.99 a sixer.

dmac (3742) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 9, 2012
12 oz bottle from a 6pack from Spirits Crossroads. Poured a good looking reddish/amber with an average faomy light beige head. Aroma has that "holiday" nose, notes of spices, chocolate, toast, orange peel, cardamom. Rather full bodied with stronger carbonation that is almost stingy. Flavor is similar to the aroma with a chocolate malt backbone, pronounced spices and a touch of range peel. Solid beer but I think this would be better classified as a "spice, herb, vegetable" beer.

TheEpeeist (3175) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2012
12 oz bottle. Clear garnet brown with a brief head. Nose is clove, nutmeg, orange peel, allspice and toffee. Medium to full body with a tang. Taste is candi, clove, orange peel and nutmeg with earthy, grassy hops, maybe some fig. Substantial and satisfying with lingering bitter spices. Suprisingly restrained effort from Southern Tier.

DrinkEmUpJones (1062) - Georgia, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Ruby red color with thin off white lacing. Malty nose with chocolate, vanilla and spices. Almost a cookie nose on this one. Smooth yet spicy with a snickerdoodle taste to it. A great little winter beer without being to huge on the palate.

sonnycheeba (3042) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Tap. Pours deep, dark brown with thin, beige head; short retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is nutmeg, cinnamon, dates, figs, earthy hops, toasted malt, and light caramel. Flavor is toast malt forward with heavy spice, dark fruit esters, and faint hops; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

seymour (1320) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Shared from a 12oz bottle into a mini schooner, thanks Vyvvy. It poured a clear reddish amber color with thin but persistent beige head and lace. I have a Danish sister-in-law who made glögg a part of our family Christmas tradition, and I love it. This beer really does taste like it, and was an unexpected treat. If I recall correctly, her recipe contains red wine, spiced rum, raisins, blanched almonds, nutmeg, cloves, cinammon, cardamom, maybe anise? The aromas and flavors of this beer hinted at all that good stuff, with appropriate whiffs of alcohol too. Really enjoyable, I’m going to be buying more of this for sure!

Billicus (286) - @RED BHUT JOIKIAS!, Paulsboro, New Jersey, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Bottle, aroma, sweet figs, spicy floraness, deep roasted maltness color, medium dark hue taste, at first the spicy spice mixture pops in nose, then deep dark fruits flow in, like mellow sunshine, and basement funk at the same time, malt backend with a little hop bitters overall, good for a spice beer, i would try again

Very dominant cinamin. Clear amber. Tastes like big red. Ginger. Quite a few spices.

Chudwick (1782) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - NOV 3, 2012
12oz bottle - pours amber with quickly diminishing tan head. Nose is nutmeg. Flavor adds caramel, spices, and a general potpourris. Medium body. Mildly sweet. Festive but I wouldn’t drink two.
