maddmatt639 (192) - Pacifica, California, USA - DEC 7, 2013
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

Not a fan of spiced holiday beers. Sweet alarming aroma. Orangish. Starts off better thn expected than it morphs into a volatile warm throat sensation. On finish it settles down a tad. Little co2 and somewhat mouth coating. Did not appreciate the high alky content.

Pours a deep reddish color with off-white head. Lots of spice on the nose on this one, a little malt too; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more spice. Good winter seasonal.

Bottle. Poured a deep amber-copper color with a small head. Aroma had tons of holiday spice. Taste was sweet up font, alot of holiday spice in the middle and a slight hoppy-bitter after-taste.

Bif (1380) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 9, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2014 Pours a mahogany color with a head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma of citrus bit of malt swetness and spices. Taste of citrus, malt sweetness and plenty of spice. Mild bitterness and a bit of a sticky finish. Medium body, smooth and plenty of spice for the holiday season. Good seasonal beer, but not so much a warm sping day.

BillWyce (698) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Poured clear copper color with a 1-finger bone-colored head. Aroma of candied citrus mixed with spices, maybe nutmeg and mace. Body is medium, with a light thickness to it. Flavor has a mild bitterness of citrus peel up front, giving way to a spice note that lingers pleasantly in the finish.

I wish I could have enjoyed this during the christmas season. 6 pack was on sale for $8 in March. Pours a deep red with a quickly fading tan head. Smells of holiday spices like cinnamon and orange. Very creamy, festive taste to it. Love it.

kevinator (843) - The Colony, Texas, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Very tasty. Strong fig and spice aroma. It smelled like mulling spices or some holiday treat. Pretty deep amber color with a foamy white head. Average weight palate with good carbonation. Good blend of flavors without being overbearing. Strong spice with cinnamon and fig and maybe a little pumpkin. Good festive drink.

Aroma of pine forest, color is ruby with thin beige head. Somewhat soapy taste, piney notes, but above not readily apparent. Interesting take on a holiday beer.
