Damico (2684) - 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.

MIBRomeo (2567) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Copper colored pour glows a bit in the sunlight carrying a tiny bubbled off white head with great lacing. The aroma is a bit if a hot mess but not in a bad way. Cardamom and orange zest dominate then some other spices maybe clove and nutmeg. Slightly reminiscent of a mulled cider. Flavor is a bit sweet some dark fruits and all the spices. Full well coated palate. Overall only OK and I might have been happier withba smaller glass as it gets a but cloying.

pineypower (2547) - 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.

jbruner (2502) - Athens, Georgia, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Pours an opaque brown from the bottle with dissipating, frothy tan head and light lacing. Aroma of spice, pine, and roasted malt. Taste follows, complex but not overwhelming. Goes down very smooth, with hints of cinnamon and dark chocolate and fruits on the back end. Much better than I was expecting.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Another surprise here. On draft at the Thirsty Monk in Asheville. Pours light ruby with a beige head. Nose is spice of Christmas cookies: cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, clove, perhaps cardamom and coriander. Usually this is not a good mix for me, but this one works. Tastes like a Christmas cooking, replete with icing. Who knew?

12oz bottle poured into glass. Nice malty presence with a good bit of spice in there. Very Christmas tasting! I’d definitely drink this on Christmas morning, Christmas eve or New years eve.

11/11/2014. Dark brown with a tan head. Seasonal spicy aromas. Sweet, spicy with a bit of hops at the end. Very nice for the holidays, but one is plenty.

Pours a one finger light tan head that fades quickly to a ring and leaves no lace. Cloudy dark amber color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Orange peel nose and flavor is spicy orange peel, figs are hidden. $2.09 for a 12oz bottle from Madden Beverage Saco, ME.
