It’s red-golden with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of fruit and spice. The flavor has sweetness and notes of malt, candy sugar, fruit, citrus, cinnamon and a peppery bite in the finish. JoeMcPhee (10140) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2009
Bottle shared by notalush. Deep amber beer with a thin white head. Aroma is a little bit spicy. There is a kiss of figgy sweetness and some soft light spiciness. Prominent cinnamon and clove with a touch of orange peel and ginger. Softly earthy bitterness over a little bit of chewy malt sweetness. It’s a pretty solid beer really DrSilverworm (10000) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2015
633ml bottle, from Dutch’s.. Labeled 7%. An older vintage, not sure which though. Shared with friends. Clear red amber color. Thin off-white bubbly head. Dots and bits of lace. Figs, touch cinnamon, touch toasty, and some mild flavor of oxidization up front, some caramel malt. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. More drying finish in the end. Moderate sweet taste, kind of a tang, light bitterness. Pretty tasty, aside from the touch of oxidization. Held up reasonably well for what it is. bb (9790) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 12, 2009

TV sets are getting smaller and smaller, and bigger and bigger. Soon the medium-sized set will be a thing of the past. FROTHINGSLOSH (8308) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2011
I have never heard of this brewer before and was surprised to hear that it comes from Japan. +++Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky orange-brown color with a small foamy white head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was cinnamon, nutmeg and was a bit musty. The flavor was bread, cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel and raisin. The finish was medium length bread and dry spices. Medium body. Ok.

330 ml bottle, vintage 2007, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 6.5%. Hazy brownish orange colour, big and lasting off-white head with a pale orange hue. Fairly strong sweetish aroma with notes of candied fruits (figs, actually), caramel and malts, hints of cinnamon. The flavour has notes of cinnamon and other mild spices, figs, caramel and malts, great sweetness nicely balanced by decent hops in the finish. Some alcoholic warmth, but not dominant. Some wood in the aftertaste. An interesting beer, pleasant to drink. GenDV138 (7900) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a dark caramel brown color with almost a finger of off-white head. Aromas of apples, dark fruit, light spices. Tasting notes of dark fruit, spices, slightly bitter bread. Medium-light body, dry finish. Strykzone (7807) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2017
Sampled at an ESBLs. Deep golden amber. A beige layer of foam. An odd aroma that I am not sure what to make of. Spices are prominent in the flavor. A little like fruit cake but more complex. Interesting.
