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.

stevoj (2485) - 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.

chinchill (2446) - 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.

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.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JAN 4, 2013
12oz bottle. Clear amber with a small light tan head. Aroma of ginger, cinnamon, caramel and graham cracker. Flavor is rich and malty with a good dose of pie spice and well hidden alcohol. Medium body with a smooth soft mouth feel. Nice spicy xmas beer.

Shared a 12 ounce bottle in the Alaskan wilderness. Notes of spiced cake, citrus, cinnamon, fruity, spruce. This is a good beer.

This was a very enjoyable Christmas spice beer, which is not a style I’m a huge fan of but I found this one quite nice.

jcnielsen (2362) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle shared at Exira Beer Summit 2012. Pours a deep brown color with white head. Spiced, malty, cinnamon, brown sugar, nutmeg aromas and flavors. Very spiced flavors, maybe overly spiced. Probably wouldn’t want to drink a full beer of this.

unclemike (2359) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Pours plum red with thin line of cream lace. Nose is full on spices, orange peel, cinnamon, nutmeg, spiced apple cider. Flavor is less pronounced than the nose, still spivey, light orange peel, booze, light cough drop finish.
