Dark orangish brown. Light carbonation. Malty, extremely smooth, very mellow spices, nutmeg, cinnamon. Thin. Overall nice beer. Subtle spice is nice and makes the beer very sessionable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, thanks Brian! Clean, reddish brown pour. Aroma of apples, hint of spice, honey. Fairly sweet with a solid malt backbone. Earthy, sweet, with some cider like spices.

Pours a clear dark brown with a foamy tan head. Aroma of chocolate and bread. Taste is initially bright and mildly sweet which finished with a well blended chocolate finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

blipp (5646) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle at around 1 year old. Pours amber with an off white head. Sweet malts, dark chocolate, baking spices, and a long sweet finish. Doesn’t really show any evidence of its age. Not great, but a pretty run-of-the-mile spiced holiday ale.

Coppery color with a thin off white head. Malty, sweet, caramel, hints of cinnamon and clove. Lingering finish.

I’m glad I only received one of these, because I’m not sure any additional bottles of this beer would have been consumed. This is a pretty rough beer. The Nor’Easter poured a light amber color. After the beer settled for a minute, the body and color turned a little murky and cloudy. The tan head dissipated rather quickly. The aroma smelled of dirty dish water with a hint of sweet spices. The body is a little too spritzy, feeling a little over-carbonated. There wasn’t much in the flavor department, either. I tasted some sweet malt, maybe a little cinnamon and nutmeg. The finish was a bit on the spicy side, but was just a little too sweet.

On draft in a pint glass. No discernable aroma. Very muted flavor. Cold and wet.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark amber with a short lived off-white head. Aroma is of bready malt, hops, hint of spices and baked apples. Body is full, slightly crisp. Taste is caramel, cinnamon, earthy hops, baked apples and cherries. Finish is long, earthy. Not very tasty, but easy drinking, for holydays brew.

Spicy scent dominates over caramel notes. Maroon amber hued beer with moderate head. I got sweetness and even cinnamon in the flavor, but it feels like a additive rather than a part of the whole. Decent enough body, but otherwise I didn’t care for it.

Tap @ The Wherehouse in Newburgh, NY... Poured deep amber with a thin beige head. Total diacetyl bomb. All over the nose and flavor profile. Some fruitiness, but not estery. Caramel, buttered popcorn. Bleh.
