ben4321 (5089) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 29, 2015
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 11/29/15

Aroma: Bready malts and spice on the aroma, toasted malt, and some herbal hop notes
Appearance: It pours a clear reddish-chestnut brown color with a creamy beige head
Flavor: The taste is malty as well, bready and a little nutty, mid-sweet, lightly herbal / bitter finish
Palate: It has a medium body, leans light, soft carbonation, and a clean, lightly dry close
Overall Impression: Decent winter-spice type of beer here. It has a bit more sweetness than I would have personally preferred, with the spice falling off a bit in the flavor in favor of that sweet, bready malt flavor. I still enjoyed it though.

wiosna (524) - - DEC 25, 2014
0,65 pullo from Boston. Lähes kirkas meripihkan ruskea, jotenkin siirappisen näköinen vaikkei öljyinen juurikaan. Tuoksussa makeaa mallasta, karamellia, hiukan alkoholia, mausteita, vähän kanelia, muskottipähkinää, humalaa. Maussa pehmeää, hieman paahteista mallasta, hitunen hiivaa, humalaa, mausteita.

mcox90 (1737) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 18, 2014
22 oz. bottle from Julio’s. Poured a clear amber/red with a one finger beige head. Spotty, at best, lace. Light aromas of nutmeg, cinnamon, fruit and mild Belgian yeast. Light caramel malt base with hints of the spices found in the aroma. Hints at sweetness. On the thin side. Could use a bit more body.

AirForceHops (5030) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 13, 2014
650 ml bottle shared by friends. Brand new 2014 vintage. Darker ruby color, thin white head. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg and Christmas like spice with a thin amount of caramel.

Flavor is thin and all over the place. Traces of yeast with a malty base for the body. Yet it really is on the watery side. Spices come in on the finish, and give very minimal balance for the malt and yeast. Ummmm... Yeah, ok.

MayorOfSudz (56) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Amber color with some average lacing. Aroma of malt and faint cinnamon spice. Starts with a malty caramel note with barely a hint of holiday spice and a split second of sweet and boozy cheer. Then it quickly washes out into a rather bland, watery ending with an ever-so-slight hop bitterness. It feels like a light holiday ale that could be consumed in larger doses than your standard heavier holiday ale. Not sure what to make of it. A good job masking the 7% octane rating, and it is a holiday ale more than anything else, but it is very unique. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet candy malt aroma. Orange color worth a medium tan head. Sweet beginning with a light bitter finish. Hints of sweetness lat until the end.

boto (1981) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAR 2, 2014
22oz. bottle: This one pours a clear, coppery amber color. There was a small off white head that didn’t leave much lacing. The nose is good. A bit spicy: nutmeg and cinnamon, clove, faint malts. The flavor is quite good. A but bready and malty, with some of the spices in there. A faint earthiness to it. I’ll be looking for this again next year.
