Hollywoodt (239) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle. Poured a medium amber color with minimal off-white head. Aroma was spicy with some nutmeg and perhaps ginger. The flavor followed with some cinammon and other spice. Some malt in there as well. Fairly similar to some of the other holiday brews.

Pours amber and hazy. Smells like Christmas, had flashbacks to Christmas. So aptly named. Taste is gingery and spicy with an orange peel after taste. Expected to hate it. Didn’t hate it per say, didn’t really like it. Aroma is artificially making my rating a little higher then I wanted, but it did smell really nice. Had from a bottle.

Got this on my trip to Fort Worth. Drank it on Christmas but saved a bottle for this review today. When I first drank it on Christmas I was blown away by all the spice flavors. Today when I drink this after a few other styles I am still blown away by all the spice. There is cinnamon for sure and maybe some corriander and allspice. Not sure on all of it, but there is just a major spice blast from this one. Perfect for the holidays and one that I hope to find again next 2Xmas.

Hazy redish pour with a ton of head. Smells hoppy but not too hoppy. Wow the taste does not match the spice. That’s rather nice.

LetsGoState (617) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Appearance is medium white head with amber color. Aroma is malty. Taste is a nice balance of spices, hops, and malts. Overall just the right balance for a Christmas beer.

JoePeesie (880) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Pours a ruby red with about a finger of white head. Nose is of Christmas candles and spice, tast is heavily spiced in a nutmeg allspice kinda way, with a hint of Danky pine. Very enjoyable brew. Get some.

haussparker (12) - Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Floral, spruce, citrus, herbs, grass, clove. Very beautiful appearance, golden brown and low head of off white color. Good beer for a one beer at a time not a session beer.

Arayaga2 (1813) - portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Deep chestnut color, with a white head. Aroma is ginger and spice, and very effervescent, like a ginger beer.Taste is the same, but with malt, like a liquid gingerbread cookie. Christmas in a glass! 6pack $10

Shot (179) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours reddish brown with a very thin head. Heavy aromas of cloves, cinnamon and caramel. Flavors are cloves, brown sugar, cinnamon and ginger. Finishes with a hint of orange and chocolate. Lively mouthfeel. Overall, pretty nice.

AKORN (201) - Virginia, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Pours amber with a nice head. Ginger, vanilla, nutmeg and wintery spices aroma. Similar to taste with a bit of bitterness. Good beer

JStax (3248) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Draft pour into a pint glass. Pours a clear amber color with a beige head of foam. Good retention and lacing. The aroma is slice and astringent bitterness. Taste is more of that. Bitter finish with medium body and medium carbonation. I just dont really care for the style, I suppose.
