after4ever (6471) - Brier, Washington, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Draft at sb. Pours a murky dark amber with a dense and creamy tan head. Big candied ginger nose, very much like a cascade dish soap. With sheeting action. Creamy medium body lively carb. Ginger, molasses, and dish detergent mid palate. Long molasses ginger finish.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear reddish amber with a medium sized, but rapidly disappearing off white head. The aroma is sweet malts with an abundance of spices including cinnamon, nutmeg, orange peel with a touch of apple and pear. The flavor has a mix of sweet caramel and more toasted malts. The spices are all there, but surprisingly not completely over the top like I thought from the nose. Cinnamon, nutmeg, apple and orange peel with a hint of raisin. Decent enough, but not something I would seek out again.

blankboy (6400) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2014
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a clear deep amber with an average size long-lasting frothy tan head. Aroma has lots of spice first -- cinnamon, ginger and more -- followed by dark fruit, a bit of alcohol and caramel malt. Spicy, fruity flavour along with caramel malt. Alcohol is reasonably well hidden. Medium bodied. Really spicy and I really like it!

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle:   Deep ruby, thin frothy beige head, dies quickly, little lacing.   Strong clove and allspice... and I mean strong.   Spicy start, clove, gingerbread, and allspice.   Could pass as a Pumpkin Beer.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finish is extremely spicy.   Almost too much in fact.   This one was just an over abundance of spices that made it hard to finish even a 12oz bottle.   Very bright spiciness is nice, but this one was over the top spicy.

Bottle to snifter. Looks solid; amber with light beige lacing. Smells of sweet malt and spices. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Alright.

Mora2000 (5893) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 25, 2013
On tap at Brewvolution. Brown pour with a white head. The aroma has a good bit of toffee and cinnamon to it. The flavor, on the other hand, tastes like a Christmas tree. I get a huge amount of juniper and pine as well as some allspice and cinnamon. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

PorterPounder (5880) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, tight off-white head that hangs around a while. Interesting spicy aroma with hints of Christmas spices, Carbona carpet cleaner, and nutmeg. Flavor has a spicy tinge to it with some nutmeg, some candy-like citrus flavoring, some cranberry sauce notes, some licorice like accents. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky. Turns slightly cloying near the end - 12 oz was enough.

Bottle at clockwork’s Dec 8th, 2012 tasting. Pours a deep amber body with no head. Aroma is spice, nutmeg and faint cinnamon. Mouthfeel is light with the cinnamon coming through a bit more in addition to flavors of nutmeg, sweet malt, and light cocoa.
