Pours a rich copper color. Spicy cinnamon aroma. Clean tasting malty goodness with a hint of more spice in the aftertaste. Overall, a nice beer for the holidays. Thanks to Kevin for sharing.

Allspice, ginger, malt. Cloudy orange brown. Bitter spiciness, transitions to a little more sweetness. Heavy mouthfeel, alcohol is fairly present. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasted on February 7, 2013: A: Pours a very dark amber, Kind of a maple color. Barely any retention. S: Numerous spices right off the bat. A faint hint of orange and some cinnamon. No fig. T: Mouth full of spices. Picking up mainly cinnamon and nutmeg. Very malty in the beginning and a slight fig note in the end. Not very sweet in the end. M: Wouldn’t go as far as smooth, but a good sipping beer. I have a medium heaviness left on my tongue. O: A very unique and good spiced winter ale. Enjoyed the cinnamon and nutmeg. Just wish there was a little more to it. Serving type: bottle

Nice dark brown / red. Plenty of spice. Slight head. Seems a little boozy.. But it might be because I have a cold.

topherh (1911) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Pours brown with a thin head. Aroma is spices clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. Flavor is a little sweet caramel and lots of spice. Nice Christmas beer, but a little will go a long way with me.

Voodoo (293) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Pours a deep chestnut brown with a slight head. Aroma of nutmeg, orange, cinnamon.....very nice aroma.....Taste is a spice bomb, so many assaulting the tongue at once.....nutmeg, coriander, orange peel, touch of lemon, bit os cinnamon, pepper??, sweet maltiness and ending with a hop bitterness. Interesting as a one off, but that might be enough for one night.

robgibbens (406) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - DEC 4, 2013
The color is caramel and licorice, like deep ruby. Head is thin. Mulling spices and bubblegum/candy in the aroma. Shortly bitter taste balances the sweeter aroma. Finishes clean, lighter bodied.

Pours dark brown. Nose is spics , cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, basically the whole sprice cabinet, also pine. Taste starts with a caramel malt, pine, then hits you with a ton of spices on the back end. Maybe a touch of bitterness from some orange peel. Pretty light body. Ok, I can't drink much of this though. Too much spice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the local brewpub. Pours a very dark reddish hue with minimal head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is of the classic xmas staples such as cinnamon, ginger, cloves, figs, allspice. Upon the first sip you are slammed with a perfect mix of the aformentioned flavors and a nice hoppy undertone. A fantastic christmas beer.
