bottle. clear red under a small, cream colored head. inviting spiced nose with cinnamon, orange peel on top of dark fruits. light astringency at first, but quickly fades into malty sweet goodness. the spices are potent with noticeable bitter orange peel. nutmeg is also quite bossy. bitterness also fades as it warms. floral, perfumey hints in the finish. medium-full body. another classy ST beer.

Nate (3998) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2013
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.

patrick767 (3918) - 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.

chinchill (3877) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 31, 2014
On tap at Yardhouse. Deep red-brown with a head that soon reduced to a ring. Minimal lacing. Both the aroma and the flavor reflect a heavy use of nutmeg. There are some other spices in here too, but the overall spicing level is just too high, largely masking the malts.

thegreenrooster (3848) - 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.

jbruner (3780) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Pours an opaque brown from the bottle with dissipating, frothy tan head and light lacing. Aroma of spice, pine, and roasted malt. Taste follows, complex but not overwhelming. Goes down very smooth, with hints of cinnamon and dark chocolate and fruits on the back end. Much better than I was expecting.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2012
12 oz bottle. Clear garnet brown with a brief head. Nose is clove, nutmeg, orange peel, allspice and toffee. Medium to full body with a tang. Taste is candi, clove, orange peel and nutmeg with earthy, grassy hops, maybe some fig. Substantial and satisfying with lingering bitter spices. Suprisingly restrained effort from Southern Tier.

Kinz (3684) - 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.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of Christmas spice and malt (in that order). Clear bourbon colored deep amber, bubbly beige rim head, spots and dots of lace. Taste is malt that is immediately doused with a heavy dose of Christmas spice. The spice carries to a lightly hopped finish. Good, not great, pretty much a small dose brew.
