mansquito (5042) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Some bodega: pours mahogany with white head. Aroma is gingerbread, spice, more spice, and malts. Taste is much the same. Pretty intense on the spice aspect of it. Medium to full bodied. Alcohol well covered. Not bad but not something I ever crave.

Aurelius (4963) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Bad label, standard longneck. Clear, ruddy, tea-colored beer; not much head. Spicy, malty aroma. Overly spiced when cold - a bit ham-handed on the nutmeg perhaps - so let this one warm up. Woody-sweet malts, dry caramel. Spice and alcohol burn at the end of a medium heavy body. Faint chocolate notes towards the end, implied vanilla. Not bad, if you’re around a bonfire. ABC, Betton.

Cybercat (4884) - 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!

sonnycheeba (4874) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 8, 2012
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.

hotstuff (4811) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 17, 2016
Rated on 02-16-2016 (Bottle) The appearance is a small creamy, smooth beige head with a long retention, amber transparent body, very fizzy carbonation, and spotty lacing. The aroma presents spicy, cinnamon, semi-sweet, caramel malt, and some nutmeg. The flavor is very spicy, ginger, some alcohol, caramel malt, sweet, and some dark fruit. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. A very quaffable beer that is quite spicy tasting which was a bit too much for my liking. It is a beer worth trying.

badgerben (4809) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Dark copper color with a very small head. Aroma of cardamom and ginger. Flavor is mostly cardamom, nutmeg and some cinnamon. Fairly malty.

travita (4783) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle. The smell is soapy, fruits, prune, and apple pie. The look is clear, a beige colored head, and red brick colored. The taste is fruits, apples, spice, and sugary.

nearbeer (4723) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 21, 2013
12 oz. Clear copper with a lasting small spit of bubbles. Nose is nutmeg, sharp cardamom and clove, and maybe some spruce resin. Taste is a big overdose of cardamom, clove, licorice and other spices. Long after taste shows some nice hints of citrus, resin and molasses and is the only tolerable part of the beer. Unfortunately the front taste is such a spice bomb that it couldn’t even be blended into another beer to save them both. Worst winter seasonal ever.

JStax (4639) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Draft pour into a pint glass. Pours a clear amber color with a beige head of foam. Good retention and lacing. The aroma is slice and astringent bitterness. Taste is more of that. Bitter finish with medium body and medium carbonation. I just dont really care for the style, I suppose.
