maxwelldeux (3806) - Everett, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear and very dark brown with a smallish white head. Nose is very spicy in the winter warmer style. Taste is also spicy, and the spice overwhelms the rest of it.

On tap at 3R6P. Holiday spice aroma, with coriander, allspice, and nutmeg. Light hop component, medium sweet. Deep dark copper amber clear with thin creamy lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. A little warming. Starts moderately sweet with lots of holiday spice flavor, sweet nutty finish. Medium bitterness in the after with lingering spices.

Tap. Pours deep, dark brown with thin, beige head; short retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is nutmeg, cinnamon, dates, figs, earthy hops, toasted malt, and light caramel. Flavor is toast malt forward with heavy spice, dark fruit esters, and faint hops; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

SHIG (3667) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle: Poured a murky brown with an off white to tan head. Aroma is spicy and herbal. Taste is a mess of herbal cough medicine, sweet malts, and evergreen tree finish.

patrick767 (3606) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 10, 2014
bottle - Pours clear amber with a rich fruity, spicy, malty aroma. The flavor is sweet with some alcohol, dark fruit, oranges, and plenty of spice including cinnamon and nutmeg. Good beer.

DiarmaidBHK (3578) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine Sterling. Pours brown with a thin khaki head. Doesn’t leave much lacing. Smells like Christmas cheer. It’s like mistletoe and bakers spices on the tongue. Finishes clean. Hides the alcohol well. This one’s pretty damn good.

jsquire (3565) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Clear copper color with a short lived khaki colored head. Nose of some cinnamon, nutmeg and Vic’s Vaporub. Very spicey holiday ale with lots of cinnamon, spice, caramel and brown sugar. Some odd medicinal sense in the background. Dusty spice finish. It drinks easier than 8%. This is a big, spicey winter seasonal.

Cybercat (3512) - Georgia, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Pours a clear mahogany - not much head, but that has to be due to the pour, and it does leave some generous lacing. Strong aroma has an overtone of cloves and horehound. Flavor has a subtle malty core and strong notes of cloves, caramel and horehound with a hint of cinnamon - and is that a whisper of pumpkin? Firm texture has plenty of lively fizz, leaving a cloves-y and horehound finish. Merry Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Winter Solstice/Festivus/Human Light or whatever!
