Draft. Muddy amber brown color, off white edge head. Aroma of mulled wine, cinnamon dominates. Taste is spiced, obviously, but also very fruity. Nice that its lower alcohol than, say, a winter warmer, but not sure its sessionable. Tasty enough.

The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: pours hazy copper witha small white head. Aroma is gongerbread and the taste is too. Really. That’s about it. Weird weird beer.

On tap at Alewife. A very interesting holiday brew. This had lots of autumn/Christmas spice, especially clove - a little too much perhaps - some ginger too. There was a light sourness, and it wasn’t malty like these beers usually are.

Had on tap at Max's in Baltimore. Poured a hazy golden with minimal head. Aroma is cardamom and nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavor follows. No taste of beer. Yuck. Nasty stuff. Spices overpower everything. Lighter bodied.

Draft at Churchkey. This one poured a hazy dark amber color with an off-white head. Aroma was heavy notes of Christmas spices - cinnamon, nutmeg notes. Flavor had more cloves than in the aroma. Notes of coriander and ginger spice in there as well. Perhaps a little heavy on the spices, this one wasn’t bad.
