COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
TCB’s special holiday spiced beer. Spiced with nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and our special secret spice ingredient. This subtle blend of spices adds to the flavor of the malt and hops to create a unique and delicious holiday treat.

On tap at Whole Foods Chandler. Muted aroma of cinnamon, bread dough, slight nutmeg, and a touch of earthy hops. Pours a muddy light reddish-brown. Solid flavor with cinnamon sugar, floury pie crust, allspice, and perhaps a bit of ginger and rhubarb. Slightly chalky mouthfeel. Not bad.

On tap at Papago. Hazy brown with off white thin head. Smells like a pumpkin beer but has lots of other spice flavors in the mix like a spiced cider version of beer. The spices are well apportioned though without making it too sweet or tiring to drink. The beer at the base of all the spices is not too heavy either, feeling thin on the mouth which makes it easy to take another sip. I've always held Anchor Steam's Christmas as the holiday beer to beat and I think this one might do it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at the brewpub. I’m a sucker for Christmas Ales and this was nice and totally unique. Tons of spruce, fruit and spice. This reminded me of a German spiced punch. Really cool.

BillKismet (3357) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2012
Luminous hazy orange body with a bubble cream head that looks still fermenting. The bouquet begins with pleasant whiffs of cinnamon and nutmeg, building into a warm crescendo. Sweet, smooth body speckled with wonderful powdery doses of cinnamon, allspice, and perhaps ginger and mace. A touch lemony with apple pie spice on the finish, Creamy body and enjoyable throughout.

(Draught) Pours a hazy orange-brown body with a small off-white head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, pumpkin, allspice, and anise. Flavor of caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, vanilla, clove, and pumpkin.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 21, 2010
(On draught at papago). Hazy amber with off-white head. Lots of spices in the nose-almost pumpkim pie-like. Sweet and spicy. Light bodied and a little thin, but a nice beer. Finish is smooth and spices fade quickly. Tasty.

alexanderj (3331) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Poured an orange-amber color. Aroma of spice, bread, and cookies. Flavor was spot on for the style. Spice, cookies, bread, and a bit of alcohol. Just really well done.

On tap @ Papago. Pour is deep amber with a tan head. Aroma is full of holiday cheer showing notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, and ginger. Flavor shows the same. Overall body is moderate, soft, and extremely spicy. Definately has to be your type of thing, but definately good around the holidays.
