Copper pour, medium head, heavy lace. Acrid pine aroma. Piney, hoppy brew. Nicely carbed. With a fruity apple flavor. Weird sweet after taste, some floral or strawberry?

Great color. Has a nice spice to it. Nutmegish. My new favorite from Boulevard. antisnobJP (275) - St. Michael, Minnesota, USA - DEC 25, 2003
Murky dark amber color with a thin but lasting cream head. Malty smell with a little hop spiciness present, not too exciting. Sweet malt with earthy,herbal hop flavor at the finish. Didn't notice any roasted malt flavors. Feels good in the mouth, not too thin. Decent winter ale, not much bitterness, but I like it that way this time of year.

Murky deep reddish brown with a medium lasting light brown head. Musty, spicy aroma of cinnamon, dough, clove, nutmeg, ginger, pepper, molasses pine, plum, red apple, and a hint of alcohol. Medium watery body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Flavor of hazelnut, ginger, molasses, cinnamon, leather, anise, plum, apple and a hint of mint. Fairly complex, another decent offering from Boulevard. Very good. CopterScott (253) - Kansas, USA - NOV 26, 2014
pours a hazy brown color with a thin off-white head. aroma is pine, spices, and some malt. Flavor is toasted bread, spices, pine, and caramel.

Poured an amber color with a small head.. Floral hoppy aroma with spices added.. Nice malty spicy flavor with medium hoppiness.. Nice winter warmer. ljstephenson (250) - Enterprise, Alabama, USA - JAN 19, 2009
A definite favorite for the holiday season, great balance with spices, orange and caramel...compares well with Anchor Christmas Ale. TomTiedemann (250) - Levittown, New York, USA - DEC 5, 2011

Pours clear amber with a thin white, bubbly head. Aromas of grapefruit and caramel, with flavor of grapefruit, some coffee, other undefinable dark red fruit, and roasted malt. bretupdegraff (242) - Fishers, Indiana, USA - FEB 22, 2010
so so.. nothing overly great. abv is strong but not a real strong brew. Spice is nice enough
