Mora2000 (5346) - 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.

#3800. Draft at blue monk. Flat looking cola colored pour. Aroma of cinnamon and allspice. Christmas flavors, cinnamon, allspice, candied oranges. Fuller mouthfeel. Decent.

PorterPounder (5192) - 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.

TheBeerGod (5045) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle. Ruby-copper with a short, tan head. Aroma is strong spices, caramel, herbal notes and faint medicine. Taste is strong spice notes, soft booze, rich caramel, sweet malt, herbal notes, and ginger. Body is medium with a chewy feel and a moderate, dense, bubbly carbonation. Finishes with more up front spices, caramel notes, chewy malt, light booze, ginger and herbs.

jredmond (5025) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JAN 6, 2013
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.

DrSilverworm (5022) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2012
12oz bottle. Strong spice aroma up front. I wish there was a bit more hearty malt to balance it out, it’s pretty much all spice here. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and etc. Bitter taste, with a strong spice bite. Some honey, orange peel. Dark, clear red color, minimal khaki head. Only a couple loose dots of lace. Dry texture, medium body, lighter carbonation. It does get better as it sits and warms though

Suttree (4903) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Bronze, ring of foam. Smells like cinnamon , licorice, and pine. Flavor is spruce, some licorice, and some other subtle spices in the background. Tasty, if a bit on the heavy side.

EithCubes (4623) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle. Nose has spice and some sweet cherry wine, heaviest spicing from the nutmeg, some all-spice perhaps?. Pours deep blood red with a scant light brown head. Dry and lightly scratchy, dark earthy notes under very mild cherry/clove with a flight of dominant spice on top. Not getting any orange peel or ginger like others below. Medium-fullish body, warms slowly, alcohol well-integrated. Could have fooled me and called it a pumpkin beer.
