TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours plum red with thin line of cream lace. Nose is full on spices, orange peel, cinnamon, nutmeg, spiced apple cider. Flavor is less pronounced than the nose, still spivey, light orange peel, booze, light cough drop finish. A solid winter warmer.

EithCubes (5089) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle. Nose has spice and some sweet cherry wine, heaviest spicing from the nutmeg, some all-spice perhaps?. Pours deep blood red with a scant light brown head. Dry and lightly scratchy, dark earthy notes under very mild cherry/clove with a flight of dominant spice on top. Not getting any orange peel or ginger like others below. Medium-fullish body, warms slowly, alcohol well-integrated. Could have fooled me and called it a pumpkin beer.

JaBier (5011) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle at World of Beer at Easton. Clear red pour with a medium tan head. Aroma of cinnamon, ginger and brown sugar. Malty flavor with ginger and lots of cinnamon before a semi-dry finish.

odinstyr (564) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Pours a clear deep copper red with the barest of heads. Smells of bread, ginger, spices, molasses. Taste is sweet, mildly bitter, and a bit of spices - malty, fig, bit of citrus.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Nice copper color topped by a thin tan head. Rich aroma with lots of malt, dark fruits and Christmas spices. Bready, sweet malts lead into fig and dark cherry fruitiness. Sweetness is balanced by some cinnamon spice. Light hop presence at the end.

b3shine (5853) - Indiana, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle to snifter. Looks solid; amber with light beige lacing. Smells of sweet malt and spices. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Alright.

rajendra82 (960) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - NOV 16, 2012
deep copper colored body was clear, but had some floaty bits in it. The smell was very herbal and spruce like, and really made it obvious that this was a winter ale. The taste on the other hand was quite a bit drier and more delicate than other winter warmers. It was as if the winter spices and herbs had been thrown into an Oktoberfest beer. There were notes of honey, raisin, brown sugar, and caramel in the taste, followed by a herbal bitterness, and a cinnamon finish. The body was light and creamy, rather than sticky and dense. This was an nice winter treat.

PorterPounder (5712) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, tight off-white head that hangs around a while. Interesting spicy aroma with hints of Christmas spices, Carbona carpet cleaner, and nutmeg. Flavor has a spicy tinge to it with some nutmeg, some candy-like citrus flavoring, some cranberry sauce notes, some licorice like accents. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky. Turns slightly cloying near the end - 12 oz was enough.

12oz bottle poured into glass. Nice malty presence with a good bit of spice in there. Very Christmas tasting! I’d definitely drink this on Christmas morning, Christmas eve or New years eve.
