This is an awesome glass of extraordinary flavor. It is smooth, with a fullness to the mouth. The feel is also pleasant. I so needed this tonight!!

Pours amber-red with small white head. Atoms is cinnamon and cloves. Tastes delicious, like magical holiday elves dancing on my tongue. Actually, spicy bread with mostly cinnamon and cloves again and slightly dark fruit tones at the end. Good mouthfeel but not heavy. Overall my favorite holiday drink. ---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 clear very dark amber color with little white that quickly disappeared. Rich malt aroma with fruit aromas and spices. Nice rich malt flavor with dried fruit flavors and a hint of spice. Dark finish. Very nice.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Appearance is a clear ruby-amber color with basically no head. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and other holiday spices. Absolutely fantastic. Taste mostly follows the nose. The spices are a bit too intense, but it is still delicious. As Christmas a beer as I’ve ever had.

Poured from bottle into shaker glass. Deep clear red copper with a small head that faded to a thin layer of bubbles. Quite a bit of lacing. Aroma is malt, roasty, clove, cinnamon, orange. All those same flavors when tasted. Medium body, somewhat creamy texture, even if a bit thin and watery. Plenty of carbonation. Lingering spicy bitter finish. To date probably the best Christmas/Winter ale I’ve had! I expected lots of spice/flavor and this definitely delivered.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Pours a dark amber with dark ruby hue. Good head with nice lacing that dissipates . The nose is a WOW of spice. Ginger, cinnamon, clove and either cardamom or allspice against a slight dark malt sweetness. Medium body and carbonation. The taste is like the nose - an exceptional blend of spice against a slight malt sweetness. Well balanced with a focus on Christmas spices that is expertly taken to the limit of flavor. Clean finish with a burst of spice flavor and a nice warm burn. If you like spice, this beer is for you.

I love holiday beers, and this offering from Southern Tier is right on point! The 2XMas pours a dark ruby red color with a decent-sized beige head. The head leaves some nice lacing around the glass. The nose is full of spices, including cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, allspice and a hint of ginger. The flavors represent most of the same qualities, with a delicious blend of spices and just enough malt and hops to balance everything out. This is a very delicious holiday-style beer. Very enjoyable!

Beautiful bouquet. Tastes like ginger, orange peel, cinnamon, smoky malt, slight pine hops. Aftertaste is ginger. Now it feels like Christmastime.

A very nice offering for the holidays from Southern Tier. Medium Amber color, aroma of holiday spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon and nutmeg very apparent on the tongue.
