Too much going on. Not a subtle beer at all. Nice dark pour, with a good smell but the taste leaves much to be desired. Taste produces peppermint? licorice? Not a Christmas style ale I am accustomed too. Reminds me of the Fantome Noel produced around 2005 or so.

12oz bottle from Kalamazoo Megabev. Deep amber brown pour with a half inch of offwhite/orange head. Pine, clove, cinnamon and citrus zest aroma, a little yeast-y. Taste is no surprise but strong. Tart clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, anise and kind of has a Jagermeister quality. Tartness and warmth is certainly supplied by ABV and malt. Mouth feel is slightly chalky, soft carbonation too. Finish is cleaner than expected and left a doughy feel and a spicy taste. Resemblance to Glogg is present but not that strong.

DocLock (9242) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours a great deep ruby shade with 1-finger khaki head. Nose is heavy spice, hops. Tastes rich, very smooth, with a big spicy semi-sweetness, hops, malt, and well hidden alcohol that makes this one a great holiday Winter Warmer.

19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Bright, clear amber hued body. Doughy malt character with notes of sweet caramel and toast. Heavy doses of spice and a touch of ginger. A medicinal herb quality.

Bottle shared by Blipp at my house. Pours dark amber with an off white head. Nose/taste of spiced fig, cinnamon, nutmeg, malt and orange peel. Medium body.

Tinco (609) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2012
Nice brown no head. Aroma is actually glögg, citrus, cinamon, almonds. Smells pretty close to glögg! Taste is not as glöggy, little bittern, citrusy, alot of christmas spices. Nice one!

Pours a reddish brown with a thin beige head. Nice warm holiday aromas of gingerbread, nutmeg, dark fruit.. taste follows. Out of the few Christmas holiday beers I’ve tried this is easily my favorite though that’s not saying too much yet since I haven’t really enjoyed many others.

swigswthwolves (74) - Michigan City, Indiana, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Aroma is of bread, dough and quite spicy. Pours a dark cloudy amber with little head. Tastes like Christmas. This is the perfect beer to bring to a holiday dinner and surprise your family. The finish is cloying and slightly sweet. As this melody of delicious flavors leaves your memory, you will certainly be left thinking of Christmas. Southern tier hit the nail on three head with this beer.

maxwelldeux (4289) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear and very dark brown with a smallish white head. Nose is very spicy in the winter warmer style. Taste is also spicy, and the spice overwhelms the rest of it.

Enjoyed on tap as part of Delilah’s winter beer tasting in Chicago, IL. I tried 21 different beers as part of this event, and unfortunately this was one of the worse ones from it. I didn’t take tasting notes, but at first thought this tasted like a Christmas tree, but then towards the end it started to taste like cough syrup. Not especially giddy over this one, consistency of cough syrup along with the taste when brought to room temperature. Wouldn’t want to have this one again.
