unclemike (2222) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Beer pours a very nice amber color with a medium sized head that goes away rather quickly. Beer smells of cinnamon and sweet grain. Tastes of cinnamon and sugar, with a nice caramel flavor. Good beer, very pleasant flavor

phaleslu (6397) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2014
22 oz. bottle from STLWill - thanks, Will, for letting me rob your cellar of this gem! Pours a somewhat hazy amber with a small off-white head that lasts as a film and ring. Nice spicy aroma, with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, brown sugar, caramel, and toast. The flavor is more of the same, but all melded together with some tea and earth. Light-bodied, with a watery mouthfeel and low to moderate carbonation. Better than I anticipated.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2011
Bottle.
Pours an average amber brown with a nose of fresh pumpkin pie. Plain and simple. Flavor is a nice onset of nutmeg that gives way to a light pumpkin and cinammon. Notes of buttery brown sugar linger in the finish. Watery mouthfeel. A good beer; I’ll buy this again next year.

Bottle. Clear light brown with a fizzy white head. Sweet spice and nutmeg aroma. Nutmeg and cinnamon tastes with the all spice dominating the flavor and thin palate.

dfinney23 (1650) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2011
Pours coppery brown with a small, creamy head. Lots of cinnamon and nutmeg but not overly sweet. Needs more beer flavor coming through but still pretty tasty.

thirdeye11 (5537) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2011
(22oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear amber/copper with creamy ring of tan bubbles. Nose of allspice, nutmeg, and gingerbread. Taste of allspice, clove, gingerbread, anise. Very spicy and dry finish.

Ratman197 (9710) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2011
Bomber poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of clove, cinnamon, allspice and light carmel. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of cinnamon, clove, allspice, light carmel and a hint of earthiness with a smooth dry lingering heavily spiced finish. WAy too much spice in this one!

jandd1983 (2538) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Sampler at the pub. It poured an amber color. The aroma was of nutmeg, cinnamon and a possibly a little molasses. The flavor was of cinnamon and nutmeg. Not bad, but not sensational.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 16, 2011
Pours a mahogany body with an off white head with mild retention and thin lacing. Aromatically very spicy with cinnamon and nutmeg, a hint of allspice. A bit incense like in terms of pure spiciness. Modest cinnamon zest and a nice drying spicy finish.
