tgncc (2998) - 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.

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.

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.

Ron (2889) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 25, 2012
On tap at MacGregor’s. Pours a deep red with a very small off-white head. Very warm, inviting aroma of spice, ginger, fruit, and some Pumking. It definitely smells like the holidays One of those beers I find myself continuing to smell. Taste is sweet and full of spice. The finish is not surprisingly spice. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation. Very nice holiday beer.

Draft. Pours a clear dark amber/burnt orange with minimal head. Aroma smells exactly like the glogg my 98-year old great grandma makes. Cinnamon, spice and fruit. Taste is light sweet. Cinnamon and christmas spuce with a good bit of wheat and bready yeast. Light bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a very long finish. Overall, great. I need to get this in a bottle to let my grandma try
