On tap and listed at 9%abv. Dark amber with a thin tan top. Scent is caramel and sugar. Taste is big time spices, all spice, cinnamon, nutmeg and sweet. I think this beer’s name is used for many different brews.

Ibrew2or3 (8207) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Poured up on tap at the Tamarack brewpub and listed at 8.6% and 30IBU with mahogany body and creamy looking tan head. The aroma is pretty full with rich dark fruity esters and various winter season Christmas fruit cake spices. The taste is bold enough to match the boldness of the wintery environment with rich sweet dark fruity esters and spicy yeast running straight into winter like spices too. It rounds out about midway with perfectly to style booziness that thins out the richness just a bit. Yummy bold winter brew where brief notes of dark roasted malts and chocolate show up once it warms a tad.

Part of the tasting tray at the brewpub. Dark copper amber. Aroma of dark caramel with hints of candied orange and light booziness. Very silky smooth mouthfeel with fruity dark caramel flavour, light roast, light chocolate, and a surprising touch of smoke. I would have guessed that this spent some time in a brandy barrel, but Barrett (one of the owners) didn’t think so. He also confirmed that there are no spices in this brew. A really great winter seasonal, in the English strong ale tradition.

Beerona97 (2398) - Washington, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Pours clear brown with a thin beige head. Aroma of caramel, floral hops and spice. Taste has some clove and nutmeg spice, leafy, herby, not really spicy, just mildly noticeable. Medium body, soft carbonation.
