Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a deep red color with a short lived, tan head. There’s a spicy holiday bouquet of spice cake, mace, clove, and cinnamon. The flavor follows suit with all of those spices coming to mix with a bit of orange in a spiced up fruitcake sort of way. There’s a light bitterness on the back end. Full bodied and slightly oily on the palate. To the holidays!

Kinz (3307) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Beer 31 Asheville trip, also nipped off the wife’s sampler at Thirsty Monk. Medium amber. Aroma of potpourri. Flavor matched, just an awful cacophony of cinammon, nutmeg, clove, faint ginger, freakin’ Santa’s elves’ deodorant in a box levels of spicing. Some may like this. Others, like myself, feel like this is being trapped in a Yankee Candle store and held captive. Yikes. After that rant, wish I could have tried it mulled, that could have worked better. Oh yeah, we didn’t even finish the sample pour between the two of us.

thegreenrooster (3243) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Pour is a murky brown with a small tan head. Aroma is loads of ginger with some other holiday spices. Flavor is more spice with a little star anise and ginger. Mouthfeel is very heavy and there is a dark candi sugar left on the tongue after this goes down. Decent spiced winter beer but way heavy though.

From a bottle poured a brown color with a small amount of head. Sweet spicy flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - DEC 12, 2012
12 oz. bottle via trade with DrSilverworm - Pours a clear mahogany color with a one finger thick light tan head. Beautiful, bright color! Light lacing. Aroma is big Christmas spices and light toasted malt. Flavor is the same but toned down a notch. the malt lingers in the finish. Medium body. This ain’t to0 bad for a XMAS beer. Thanks Chris.

A nice Christmas beer., Not a huge fan of this genre to begin with, but it did get me in the holiday spirit (even though it’s still a week away from Thanksgiving). Aroma and taste were the same. All spices. Cinnamon, allspice, ginger and pine. Not sure if pine is in there or not, but tasted/smelled like it. Nice carbonation. Decent beer that I could drink one of during the holidays but that’s it.

tgncc (2830) - Bellmore, New York, USA - NOV 17, 2013
The aroma is spices, caramel backbone. The appearance is clear deep ruby, white head. The flavor is spices, like nutmeg, cinnamon, orange peel, mint, clove, kitchen sink, etc, some caramel. The finish is purely spices, slight burn Interesting, if a bit of a "done before" feel Medium in body, slightly thick. Good overall. Definitely Christmas-y in spirit.
