#3800. Draft at blue monk. Flat looking cola colored pour. Aroma of cinnamon and allspice. Christmas flavors, cinnamon, allspice, candied oranges. Fuller mouthfeel. Decent.

Another surprise here. On draft at the Thirsty Monk in Asheville. Pours light ruby with a beige head. Nose is spice of Christmas cookies: cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, clove, perhaps cardamom and coriander. Usually this is not a good mix for me, but this one works. Tastes like a Christmas cooking, replete with icing. Who knew?

Gorgeous ruby red shades with a tan uninspiring head; nice malty, sweetish tones with hints of citrus peel, ston fruits and muted spices. Very pleasant to drink! A winter warmer; that’s for sure. Gets better as it warms up a bit. Well balanced; another strong, well-made offering from this, one of my consistently reliable favorites, Southern Tier. Luv what they do!

Bottle. Ruby-copper with a short, tan head. Aroma is strong spices, caramel, herbal notes and faint medicine. Taste is strong spice notes, soft booze, rich caramel, sweet malt, herbal notes, and ginger. Body is medium with a chewy feel and a moderate, dense, bubbly carbonation. Finishes with more up front spices, caramel notes, chewy malt, light booze, ginger and herbs.

On tap at MacGregor’s. Pours a deep red with a very small off-white head. Very warm, inviting aroma of spice, ginger, fruit, and some Pumking. It definitely smells like the holidays One of those beers I find myself continuing to smell. Taste is sweet and full of spice. The finish is not surprisingly spice. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation. Very nice holiday beer.

I love holiday beers, and this offering from Southern Tier is right on point! The 2XMas pours a dark ruby red color with a decent-sized beige head. The head leaves some nice lacing around the glass. The nose is full of spices, including cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, allspice and a hint of ginger. The flavors represent most of the same qualities, with a delicious blend of spices and just enough malt and hops to balance everything out. This is a very delicious holiday-style beer. Very enjoyable!

Pours a deep amber-red with a thick off white head. Aroma is a peppery bread/dough with some syrup in the background. Taste is nutmeg & clove with dark cane syrup and a slightly bitter finish. The spice seems a little heavy- handed.

Bottle shared at Exira Beer Summit 2012. Pours a deep brown color with white head. Spiced, malty, cinnamon, brown sugar, nutmeg aromas and flavors. Very spiced flavors, maybe overly spiced. Probably wouldn’t want to drink a full beer of this.

Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit III. Thanks Jetson! Pours a clear dark orange appearance with a foamy, brown head. Very spicy, nutmeg, light cinnamon, orange citrusy, clove aroma. Chewy toasty malty, toffee, sprucey, nutmeg, herbal, minty flavor. Super spicy. Kind of an interesting beer.

on draft poured a deep red color with off white large foamy head. waited for the head to disappear a couple minutes. the initial aroma was of clove quite strong. this didnt deter me...again the rest of the different aromas came through warm and fuzzy all over...the taste was strong in spice and warmth and something i couldnt put my finger on till the end...once it got warm the aroma and taste to me was of lavender and a strong one at that...not a bad thing but just different. glad i got to taste this one. does has a solid malt backbone.
