Perfect dark amber color, fresh taste not too thick or heavy but also not a lightweight, very good seasonal brew with mild hoppiness

If you put everything Christmas in a bottle, you would get this beer. With a spicy ginger and cinnamon aroma, and amazingly complex yet simple flavor palate, this is not just a great holiday beer, but a great beer beer.

(Bottle). This was the perfect choice after decorating the Christmas Tree. Bright aroma, rich with spices and pine. Mahogany complexion with thin head. The flavor is unique. Festively spiced with understated alcohol. A perfect seasonal selection. I think this is way underrated within RB. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of the most affordable spiced holiday ales out there. I always have a six pack in the fridge during the holidays. Spices are right up front in both the aroma and initial taste followed by a peppery sweet finish.

Pours a rich copper color. Spicy cinnamon aroma. Clean tasting malty goodness with a hint of more spice in the aftertaste. Overall, a nice beer for the holidays. Thanks to Kevin for sharing.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on February 7, 2013:
A: Pours a very dark amber, Kind of a maple color. Barely any retention.
S: Numerous spices right off the bat. A faint hint of orange and some cinnamon. No fig.
T: Mouth full of spices. Picking up mainly cinnamon and nutmeg. Very malty in the beginning and a slight fig note in the end. Not very sweet in the end.
M: Wouldn’t go as far as smooth, but a good sipping beer. I have a medium heaviness left on my tongue.
O: A very unique and good spiced winter ale. Enjoyed the cinnamon and nutmeg. Just wish there was a little more to it.
Serving type: bottle

Nice dark brown / red.
Plenty of spice.
Seems a little boozy.. But it might be because I have a cold.

Pours brown with a thin head. Aroma is spices clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. Flavor is a little sweet caramel and lots of spice. Nice Christmas beer, but a little will go a long way with me.
