Reminds me of a beer version of gluewein, with some of the same flavors. Cinnamon, nutmeg, with a dash of citrus and other spices. It’s like Christmas slapping you in the nose and mouth. With all the spice you can’t really detect the alcohol that much. It is very drinkable since the body is somewhat light for a beer like this and there is no bitterness. This might be one of my favorite Christmas/winter beers.

Bottle - rusty red with a medium head and either sediment or some sustained bubbles throughout the glass. Has a nice ginger aroma and taste up front and then a biscuit malt flavor after that. Medium thick body. Good sipping beer.

Good looking deep red medium bodied beer with strong head and lacing throughout the sample. Spiced winter ale never had a Swedish Glogg but liked this offering from Southern Tier.

Mahogany pour w/ a light brown head. Aroma is spices, dark fruit, Christmas time. Taste is yum. Christmas spices, little dark fruit, just tasty. Flavor rises as it warms up.

Aroma is highly spiced reminding me of a holiday spiced candle on my grandma mantle in 1993. The appearance is beautiful dark ruby red like a pointcedia next to the candle on the mantle with small head minimal lacing. Average mouthfeel. Overall a good representation of a spiced beer but not my favorite with overwhelming spices.

Dark brown with a decent head and a lot of lacing on the pour. Aroma of a lot of malts and spices, mostly nutmeg and just general nuttiness. Flavor was more nutmeg, allspice, and some slight citrus hops though very muted. Slightly spicy and watery finish. Video review here: https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2015 A well balanced and very enjoyable Christmas season ale. Plenty flavorful, with clove, cinnamon, allspice, and figs. Sweet and spicy at first, but the flavor dries out some on the palate. This one hits the goldilocks zone for me! Other people must have thought so too because it quickly sold out everywhere I saw it. Excellent brew - another fine ST release.

Arcadia (61) - DeLand, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle from ABC. Pours a dark muddy brown with a thin off-white head with some fantastic lacing. Aromas are light roasted malts and some citrus hops - mostly orange, which comes through very nicely on the taste. Really sweet throughout with a nice long finish; pretty full bodied and oily. Quite good. Acquire.

Ruddy pour, minimal offwhite head. Aroma of figs, fruit, spices, and pine. Flavor is spruce, figs, orange, spices, cloves, nutmeg. Christmas tree in a bottle. Tasty, if a little too sweet.

trapped (1072) - New York City, TURKEY - JAN 13, 2015
Draught at Blind Pig. Dark amber with reddish tint, medium creamy beige head, strong spicy aroma with cinnamon and nutmeg flavors, low carbonation, very spicy taste with strong cinnamon presence, long finish with a bitter aftertaste. Very glogg-like indeed! It was too un-beer-like for me.
