GT2 (8742) - San Diego County, California, USA - NOV 14, 2012
355mL thanks to BlackIPA! Thanks dude. Pours clear, deeper mahogany red, no sediment. Thick, powerful yellow foam. Good retention. Webby to soapy lacing. Nose is heavy fall and Christmas spice. Moves to more lemon, black tea, tea leaves. Pine forest, christmas scented home. Taste is thicker, as expected with ST, a lot of pie crust, cinnamon, nutmeg, no sticky sweetness surprisingly. Pretty decent stuff. One of the more drinkable ST beers in a style I would have never guessed. Palate is a bit black tea, some tree bark, camphor. My rating: 3.5 Fiance rating: 3.8

Dogbrick (8681) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Sample at Brews Cafe. The beer is a clear dark copper color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. The aroma is spicy with notes of malt and pine. Medium body with flavors of cinnamon, malt and dark fruit. The finish is sweetly spiced with a nutmeg and malt aftertaste. Above average all around.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours a great deep ruby shade with 1-finger khaki head. Nose is heavy spice, hops. Tastes rich, very smooth, with a big spicy semi-sweetness, hops, malt, and well hidden alcohol that makes this one a great holiday Winter Warmer.
