Yeah, I tried this beer during 1 out of 3 possible nights. Good thing I wrote it down, otherwise I would have forgot! oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Pours a nice dark amber color. Aromas of burnt malts, dark fruit, and some spice. Flavors of caramel, a touch a chocolate and nutmeg? ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a golden amber color with a small white head. The aroma is a giant hop blast. The taste matches the aroma. An excellent beer.

12 oz. bottle. Pours dark copper with tan head. Aroma was citrus, pine and pepper. Taste was sweet malts and peppery. Bif (2419) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - JAN 4, 2016
Bottle. Pours a dark copper color with a decent head. Aroma of pine, citrus, bit of malt sweetness and spice. Taste of malt sweetness, bit of pine and spice. Decent bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly light body, smooth with a hint of the season. Hoped for a bit more in a holiday offering.

Rather uninspired. Appearance is a cloudy dark gold. Aroma is faint. Taste is rather bland and even slightly off putting with a skunky aftertaste. Very disappointed. Would definitely not recommend. csaso (2368) - Missouri, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Bottle - 2015, big foamy head, dark copper color, fairly good size pine hop aroma and flavor, moderate bready malt backbone, resiny finish, pretty good overall

Orange/brown pour, finger off white head. Nose is tangerines, hint of booze. Bittersweet. Middle is pine & spruce tips (some bark floating there too), bitter citrus peel, and medium roasted malt. Finish is bitter. Little out of balance. Sirmixsomewhat (266) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2015
Most winter beers fall in one place for me: the middle. They’re typically not ones to teeter to the bad or the great, but this one teeters more toward the former direction and I’m not totally sure why. I guess it’s because it’s more bitter than a winter beer typically is, but it’s not terrible. sjohnny (693) - - NOV 24, 2015
Smells like a Christmas tree....so it's got that. Pours a cloudy reddish honey amber with a thick foamy very light tan head. Pine, earth, bitter finish. Thin mouthfeel. It's not bad or anything.
