akoeninger (515) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Reddish, strong spiced aroma with hints of black pepper and ginger. Spiced and caramel malt flavor. Spicy after taste. Fully body. This beer is all spice but very good. It's not something you would drink a few of. Best drunk as part of winter celebrating and full festive meals as an after dinner drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a copper reddish with a very small slight off white head. Head dissipates rather quickly. Smell is cloves and banana and cinnamon and bubble gum. My God it smells like Christmas. Medium mouthfeel with plenty of carbonation. The taste is very interesting. It was a good bit piney-er than I expected. A bit of alcohol warmth. Honestly, there’s a little too much going on tastewise - all the smells are represented in the flavor - maybe just a bit too much. Not really sure if I like the taste, but I know I like the smell a whole lot more.

rougeau13 (2081) - Richmond, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2014 Deep clear reddish brown with a cream colored head. Aroma of pumpkin pie, clove, fig, berries, and pine. Taste is well spiced, malty and slightly sweet, just barely boozy, and a little bitter. Medium-full bodied. Very well done; lots of spice/holiday flavors without overdoing it or lacking the necessary backbone.

Pours a copper color with light khaki head (1 finger). Nice aromas of spices (cinnamon, nutmeg), fig, malt. Nice balanced flavors - spices, fig, malt, and a touch of alcohol. Very nice for the season.

ElGaucho (2264) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle. Lots of spice in the nose with heavy notes of clove. I haven’t had a lot of glogg, which is usually served warm, so I don’t have an expert opinion on how close this brew is to glogg. However, knowing how well Southern Tier nails their beers and how unique this brew is, I’m fairly certain it’s a close match. Really tasty once it warms.

bkurtz (900) - PERU - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle - Pours a clear, deep copper/red with a quickly dissipating head. Aromas of ginger, Cinnamon, and clove, a cross between pumpkin pie and typical winter spices. The aromas carry through in the taste with a malt backbone and some tart notes. A lot going on, nicely balanced and interesting. Good winter brew.
