DCLawyer (1412) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle->taster at Dominion W&B. Dark brown with small lite tan head. Fruit, holiday spices, malt. Components are in good balance, no overwhelming spices stand out. Very good.

Hangover (1058) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Dark brown/red pour with a thin tan head. Huge spicy aroma with lots of nutmeg, cinammon and clove. Flavor matches the aroma, lots of spice, the cinnamon is a bit more pronounced, and there is a very slight hint of citrus on the back end. Nice take on a christmas brew.

Busick (379) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Very solid seasonal from Southern Tier! Pours a rich blackish-brown while putting off hints of nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste makes you want to be with family talking fireside!

Bottle. The smell is soapy, fruits, prune, and apple pie. The look is clear, a beige colored head, and red brick colored. The taste is fruits, apples, spice, and sugary.

Very aromatic with huge amounts of spice. The flavor is a bit sharp and has just a touch of a funky finish.

MIBRomeo (2555) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Copper colored pour glows a bit in the sunlight carrying a tiny bubbled off white head with great lacing. The aroma is a bit if a hot mess but not in a bad way. Cardamom and orange zest dominate then some other spices maybe clove and nutmeg. Slightly reminiscent of a mulled cider. Flavor is a bit sweet some dark fruits and all the spices. Full well coated palate. Overall only OK and I might have been happier withba smaller glass as it gets a but cloying.

From tap. Pours a nice amber/red color with a slightly off white head. Smells like pine trees and figs. Very smooth on the front side going tangy in the middle. Finishes creamy and smooth. Aftertaste is only slightly bitter. Tastes like christmas at home. One of my favorite american holiday brews.
