Doesn't live up to the quality of some other boulevard brews. Didn't get the molasses. I did taste some sweetness that I atribute to apricot or pear, maybe. I'll admit I'm a hard sell on some of the seasonal ales! Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 23, 2003
Nice ruby hued pour with a small white head and lace. Some malt in the aroma. Mostly contains hops and a bit of spiciness. Earthy flavor, slightly woody, malts and hops. Medium body and a smooth cleansing palate that finishes with some bittering hops. Not too shabby. Thanks goes out to Acrodizer on this one.

Beautiful dark copper/brown color. Nice head. Flavor was hoppy, slightly piney, and sweet. Classic beery aroma. Pretty good, but nothing really to set it apart from the other holiday ales I have tried. Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - NOV 27, 2004
Pours a murky red/brown, small white head. Aroma is malty, with a kick or hops. Flavor is spicy, malt, brown sugar, astringent palate. A nice brew. Thanks to Heemer. footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - FEB 15, 2005

Hazy reddish brown color, like cider, with a thin off white to light tan head. The aroma was spiced apples, cherries, some wheat and sour grapes. Moslty wheaty in the taste with a bit of honey, some apples and a bitter wheaty finish. Not much in the way of a mouth feel, but almost watery though. Not outstanding but not horrible. mybrainhurts (400) - North Dakota, USA - FEB 19, 2006
Muddy water brown pour with a foamy yet soft white head. Aroma of fruity, floral hops and pine. Not much depth in the aroma. Flavors of citrus and grapefruit, perhaps a touch of toffee. Watery mouthfeel and bitter finish. I was hoping for more complexity with this offering but It seem rather one dimensional. As it warms a kiss of caramel emerges but it’s too late to really add anything. Overall, just ok. timtheenchanta (70) - Clemson, South Carolina, USA - JUN 4, 2006
Hazy light brown liquid with a medium head that dissipates quickly.
Good spicy hop balanced caramel malt nose.
Very sweet malt taste. Not much spice to my surprise. Slight alcohol taste to it. Slight hop taste to it. A medium bitterness in the palate with slight caramel malt. Ungstrup (38382) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2009
Bottled. A hazy red-amber beer with a huge orangey head. The aroma has notes nuts and caramel and more sugars. The flavor is sweet with notes of nuts, molasses - a bit cloying, and some alcohol, leading to a dry alcoholic finish, where the sugar notes lingers. 6ROW (473) - corpus christi, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2009
