jcnielsen (2423) - 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.

jb (2412) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Stumbled upon this today in the supermarket and made an impulse purchase. Good buy. Heavy spiciness in the nose, along with cherries and cola. Nice dark appearance with tan head. Rather clear. Palate has some oak along with the cola fruit and spice. Nice, this plus the cold weather has me ready for the holidays.

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.

glennmastrange (2381) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Bottle. Moderate to heavy malt aromas of cookie and roasted, light to moderate herbs and cooked orange for the hops, light dough for the yeast with raisin, port, nutmeg and cinnamon. Head is small, fizzy, light tan with no lacing but good legs and is almost fully diminishing. Color is clear medium red/brown. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Palate is medium to full, between oily and creamy, with a soft to lively carbonation and a sticky finish. Malts dominate the nose, then the hints of spices follow, exceptional balance in flavor and a smooth palate. This is an above average American Strong Ale and an excellent Christmas time beer.

puboflyons (2372) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 22, 2013
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Mahogany-cherry amber colored pour with a quick lasting off-white fizzy head. The spices in the aroma include a big dose of ginger and nutmeg, clove and allspice. Light hop note. Medium body. The booze tends to kick in more in the taste than on the nose along with the ginger and peppery spices. The finish lingers and ends dry.

Chudwick (2346) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - NOV 3, 2012
12oz bottle - pours amber with quickly diminishing tan head. Nose is nutmeg. Flavor adds caramel, spices, and a general potpourris. Medium body. Mildly sweet. Festive but I wouldn’t drink two.
