fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2010
Ancient backlog. Aroma big on the spice (perhaps nutmeg, clove, licorice) with cocoa. Flavor again spice-centric, but in a somewhat complex way, with some plummy malt. Not really my thing, but not bad.

bu11zeye (11955) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2009
(Draught) Pours a hazy deep amber body with a medium cream head. Aroma of juniper, pine, anise star, clove, and cinnamon. Flavor of pine, raisins, black pepper, juniper, clove, coriander, cardamom, and caramel malt.

handsomejn (69) - Arkansas, USA - DEC 12, 2009
nice seasonal brew, spiced just right for the Christmas season, nutmeg, allspice, clove. Love the smell. Medium texture, cloudy red brown color... not an everyday beer, but nice for the season, especially if you want something really different. this GABF Gold medal brewer is known for skill and creativity.

DJMonarch (9159) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2009
Cask Stillage from the Jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 26/09/2009 Big spice aroma. Copper mid brown coloured with a spicy clove flavour. A little bitterness in a crisp malt finish.

DuffMan (6802) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 29, 2008
GABF 2008. Listed on the card as a brown ale, but with one sip it becomes apparent that this is more of a holiday-spice beer. Chocolate, cinnamon, mace, with a subtle raisin fruit note in the finish. Not what I expected, but a pleasant surprise in the end.

wetherel (1836) - Encinitas, California, USA - OCT 24, 2008
What an incredible aroma. Lots and lots of allspice, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. Logan recommended this beer. Very dry. Dark black color. Low flavor.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2007
The body is dark brown and the modest head vanishes rapidly. Under a heap of spicing there’s a dark caramel base in the aroma. The spices - cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, pine - dominate the flavor but a drying bitterness emerges in the finish. Like eating a Christmas cookie baked with hops.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 22, 2006
Sampled from a growler at the Milwaukee YEHa!05 courtesy of DenverLogan: Pours a transparent dark copper with a thin lightly-lacing off-white head. Earthy musty spice aroma reminds me of Anchor Our Special Ale, but with a little less spice. Body starts with a thin lightly sweet ginger spice and earthy malt flavor with a touch of spruce. Finishes thin and dry. A decent spiced winter beer that hides its abv well.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 28, 2005
Growler de Logan. Clear dark brown body. Sharp orange juice and dried cherry in the aroma. More grape juice in the flavor along with orange rind and bready yeast along with light coriander.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - DEC 20, 2005
Thanks to DenverLogan for sharing this: Pours a dark brown color, no head. Aroma of strong spices, cinnamon and allspice, some green leefy stuff too. Flavor is sweet, a nice spice kick, smooth and malty body.
