Bottle. Pours a clear copper tinged brown amber with a thin beige head. Smells like warm cookies, spices and warm figs, toasty malt. Medium bodied, quite spicy. A touch of caramel, malt, toast, more spices. A bit of fig and plum, bitter spices and malt. Spices were great on the nose but come out a bit heavy handed in terms of flavor. It’s no pumpkin but it’s decent enough I guess.

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.

[7455-20150804] Bottle. Fragrant allspice cake aroma. Clear, red amber body with a medium-lasting creamy tan head. Boozy cake spice and toasted green leaf hops flavour. Medium-full body. Interesting. (8/3/7/3/14) 3.5

From NOTES. I once read that the Belgians say, "if you can tell what the spices are, you’ve used way to much" and that seems VERY appropriate here. This was WAAAAAY to spicy for me.

2015-08-04. Hazy dark amber brown body, nice tan head fades. 3+ Aroma has a good amount of spice character, nutmeg, all spice and more I can’t pick out. 7++ Flavour is similar spice character, moderately bitter throughout, pleasant sweet malty core. 7+ Smooth medium bodied palate, moderate carbonation. This is basically Anchor’s Christmas beer with a bigger malt core, and it works better because of it. Spice character is still overly strong for my taste but I think that was the idea. Pretty nice, but better suited to Christmas than the much delayed summer consumption I am giving it. Bottle from Ye Olde Spirit Shop, MD.

Bottle. Dark chestnut/ruby. Aroma is ginger, sugar cookies, clove and fancy soap. Gross. Taste adds pine needles and brown sugar. Certainly reminiscent of Xmas but not good.

fiveacestx (825) - Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle - rusty red with a medium head and either sediment or some sustained bubbles throughout the glass. Has a nice ginger aroma and taste up front and then a biscuit malt flavor after that. Medium thick body. Good sipping beer.

Good looking deep red medium bodied beer with strong head and lacing throughout the sample. Spiced winter ale never had a Swedish Glogg but liked this offering from Southern Tier.
