Draft. Pours a clear dark amber/burnt orange with minimal head. Aroma smells exactly like the glogg my 98-year old great grandma makes. Cinnamon, spice and fruit. Taste is light sweet. Cinnamon and christmas spuce with a good bit of wheat and bready yeast. Light bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, great. I need to get this in a bottle to let my grandma try

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - DEC 12, 2012
12 oz. bottle via trade with DrSilverworm - Pours a clear mahogany color with a one finger thick light tan head. Beautiful, bright color! Light lacing. Aroma is big Christmas spices and light toasted malt. Flavor is the same but toned down a notch. the malt lingers in the finish. Medium body. This ain’t to0 bad for a XMAS beer. Thanks Chris.

chinchill (2892) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 31, 2014
On tap at Yardhouse. Deep red-brown with a head that soon reduced to a ring. Minimal lacing. Both the aroma and the flavor reflect a heavy use of nutmeg. There are some other spices in here too, but the overall spicing level is just too high, largely masking the malts.

Damico (2855) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Pours dark amber mostly clear with a beige head. The aroma is strong, sweet, and brings plenty of Christmas spices so pleasant in the nose with notes of cinnamon, almost apples as well. The flavor brings sweet clovey Christmas flavored malts, which would mean the spices of the season for anyone who wants to criticize my descriptions for lack of something better to do. The flavor ends a bit bitter but smooth overall.

stevoj (2811) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Aroma of pine forest, color is ruby with thin beige head. Somewhat soapy taste, piney notes, but above not readily apparent. Interesting take on a holiday beer.

pineypower (2719) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle thanks to Dmac. Pours out an attractive ruby red color with a small white head and a solid amount of carbonation. Aroma is of sweet cherries, fig, spice, nutmeg and a slight warming alcohol note. Taste is solid, very similar to the aroma, sweet cherries, fig, nutmeg, spices, light alcohol, some sweet notes in there as well.

umich03jm (2700) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle. Reddish brown pour with a very small head. Aroma is a spice bomb. All spice, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. Tastes like a sweet spice bomb. Burnt sugar and spices dominate. Some light toffee too. Medium body. Overall, too sweet and too much spice but it’s not terrible.

cbfobes (2677) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2012
On tap at Craftsman, pours a clear reddish amber with no head, a lot of spices on the nose with some sweetness of the malt, flavor has a lot of spice on the front end, too much for my liking, tastes like liquid popori, ugh.
