Draft at Moriartys. Tulip. Very dark clear dark orange copper pour. With a small foamy white head. Lots of mulling spices off the top. Malty dark spicy vegtables. Celery hearts. Cloves. Artichokes. Nutmeg. Prunes. Cinnamon. Truffles. Cardamom. Sasafrass. Dark caramel sweetness married to some bitter earthy spice. Similar to their Pumpkin beer but with a darker fuller body and no pumpkin.

I usually like strong winter seasonal ales but I’m not down with this one. The smell is weird and medicinal. The taste is slightly better but it still isn’t very good. Some pine and bread notes. Pours a dark chestnut color with a medium head.

ronaldtheriot (1230) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Southern Tier 2xMas has an extremely thin, off-white head, a clear, burgundy appearance, with no bubble streams and no lacing left behind. The aroma is of mixed spices- and, this is very strong- with a background of sweet bread. Taste is of spices, particularly white pepper and sweet bread. Mouthfeel is medium and a bit slick, and Southern Tier 2xMas finishes semi-dry, spicy, and rich. Overall, this is another crummy spiced/flavored beer, of which serious beer drinkers are so weary. It is okay for beer in general, but maybe most excellent in the insipid spiced beer genre. It is what it is. RJT

TreborWhip (392) - Reading, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Draft pours a clear burnt umber with thin tan head. Light malty aroma. Spicey flavors of coriander, cinnamon, and white pepper with a warm finish. A very nice winter ale to be enjoyed by a roaring fire.

Poured from bottle into shaker glass. Deep clear red copper with a small head that faded to a thin layer of bubbles. Quite a bit of lacing. Aroma is malt, roasty, clove, cinnamon, orange. All those same flavors when tasted. Medium body, somewhat creamy texture, even if a bit thin and watery. Plenty of carbonation. Lingering spicy bitter finish. To date probably the best Christmas/Winter ale I’ve had! I expected lots of spice/flavor and this definitely delivered.

SuperTiti33 (505) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 16, 2013
Ambrée/rouge. Nez: épice. Cannelle. Fruité. Raisin sec. Muscade. Gingembre. Sent plus la bière à la citrouille que la Noël. Gâteau au fruit confit. Bouche: caramel. Gâteau. Canne de Noël. Anis. Muscade. Fine amertume. Intéressant.

Nate (3719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2013
On tap at 3R6P. Holiday spice aroma, with coriander, allspice, and nutmeg. Light hop component, medium sweet. Deep dark copper amber clear with thin creamy lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. A little warming. Starts moderately sweet with lots of holiday spice flavor, sweet nutty finish. Medium bitterness in the after with lingering spices.

Aroma Is plum, raisin, allspice, coriander, clove. Very festive. Clear brown color with a touch of red. Ashy taste, bitter orange. Good beer, though the aroma sets your expectations high and the flavor disappoints.
