Copper colored pour glows a bit in the sunlight carrying a tiny bubbled off white head with great lacing. The aroma is a bit if a hot mess but not in a bad way. Cardamom and orange zest dominate then some other spices maybe clove and nutmeg. Slightly reminiscent of a mulled cider. Flavor is a bit sweet some dark fruits and all the spices. Full well coated palate. Overall only OK and I might have been happier withba smaller glass as it gets a but cloying.

DialSquare (2506) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2014
12oz bottle from ABC on Apalachee. Brown pour, off-white head. Aroma is cinnamon spices, dark fruit. Tastes are strong spices - cardamom, clove, cinnamon. Also caramel and dark bread. I would have thought that the strong spices would have put me off, but I like this in comparison to other xmas brews. It’s not too sweet.

Another surprise here. On draft at the Thirsty Monk in Asheville. Pours light ruby with a beige head. Nose is spice of Christmas cookies: cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, clove, perhaps cardamom and coriander. Usually this is not a good mix for me, but this one works. Tastes like a Christmas cooking, replete with icing. Who knew?

12oz bottle poured into glass. Nice malty presence with a good bit of spice in there. Very Christmas tasting! I’d definitely drink this on Christmas morning, Christmas eve or New years eve.

pineypower (2479) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle thanks to Dmac. Pours out an attractive ruby red color with a small white head and a solid amount of carbonation. Aroma is of sweet cherries, fig, spice, nutmeg and a slight warming alcohol note. Taste is solid, very similar to the aroma, sweet cherries, fig, nutmeg, spices, light alcohol, some sweet notes in there as well.

Damico (2452) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Pours dark amber mostly clear with a beige head. The aroma is strong, sweet, and brings plenty of Christmas spices so pleasant in the nose with notes of cinnamon, almost apples as well. The flavor brings sweet clovey Christmas flavored malts, which would mean the spices of the season for anyone who wants to criticize my descriptions for lack of something better to do. The flavor ends a bit bitter but smooth overall.

Ron (2441) - 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.
