bottle - Pours clear amber with a rich fruity, spicy, malty aroma. The flavor is sweet with some alcohol, dark fruit, oranges, and plenty of spice including cinnamon and nutmeg. Good beer.

A wonderful winter seasonal brew with a bite. I don’t taste the figs as much as as orange peel and nutmeg, it definitely hits the mark as an xmas beer. Quite drinkable on it’s own and wonderful with a warm bowl of curry. Pleasant carbonation, a bit sweeter than I normally like but you can’t tell this is a double caliber abv. Would definitely buy again, I’m not sure I would want to drink more than one in a sitting though.

Deep copper, slight off white head...nice lacing. Cinnamon and orange nose. Pine and spices are strong at the start, some slight bittering hops mix in. Nice amount of carbonation. Much more complex than I’m making it out to be.

nittanytide (230) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Poured a deep ruby with a thin, white head. Aroma of fruitcake, raisins. Taste is malty with a little bit of fruit (cherry?) in there. Much drier finish than I expected.

Derek881 (1010) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a cloudy and hazy deep amber-brown color with a dark orange hue and a large foamy off-white head with average retention, good lacing and cling. Its aroma featured notes of spice, pumpkin, grains, and yeast, along with some fruity and floral tones. The taste was a sweet fruity and floral component mixed with a deeply bitter and sour grainy effect. It is fairly wet and lively with average carbonation and a thinner mouthfeel. Thank you Siobhan!

DialSquare (2755) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2014
12oz bottle from ABC on Apalachee. Brown pour, off-white head. Aroma is cinnamon spices, dark fruit. Tastes are strong spices - cardamom, clove, cinnamon. Also caramel and dark bread. I would have thought that the strong spices would have put me off, but I like this in comparison to other xmas brews. It’s not too sweet.

SHIG (3602) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle: Poured a murky brown with an off white to tan head. Aroma is spicy and herbal. Taste is a mess of herbal cough medicine, sweet malts, and evergreen tree finish.
