Itís alright, but not some of my fav characteristics blended together. Poured with a nice off white to light tan head and some lace. Color is an attractive medium amber with some copper highlights. Aroma is malty, molasses, a little toffee, and bit of vanilla/caramel. Flavorís about the same. Good body and carbonation. Kind of a sweet finish. A hint of alcohol at the end of the finish. Not bad.

A reddish-brown beer with a nice head. The aroma is sweet, fruity(berries?), & a hint of alcohol with the taste being the same as aroma. Beerdrinker79 (2188) - Idaho, USA - DEC 17, 2010
12 oz. bottle- Pours brownish amber with a thin head and little particles floating around, the aroma is subtle warming spices and a hint of alcohol. The flavor is bitter and somewhat hop forward followed by spices, the beer is very bland actually, it needs something. On the palate the body is thin, carbonation is somewhat high. Overall I wasnít really impressed with this one, being that itís called nut cracker you would think it would have a nutty flavor to it, this is just very average.

Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma was a fruity caramel happy sort of thing. Taste was sweet with a bit of carbonation for this style. Overall it was pretty good. bockimstein (167) - New Madrid, Missouri, USA - NOV 19, 2011
12 oz. bottle to lager glass. Pours dark amber with thin off white head. I get floral hops and a touch of sweet, molasses maybe. Sweet with a hopped finish. A decent winter offering.

Hazy reddish brown with a good size tan head. Grapefruit and spice nose with some malt. Bitter and sweet with some spice on the initial sip. Sweet sticky finish. ozarkspops (368) - - NOV 14, 2012
Golden amber pour. Medium bright head. Hop forward aroma. Taste is mostly hop spiciness with sweetness from the molasses with a hint of esther in the finish.

12 ounce bottle as shown in the photo. Amber color, steady streams of carbonation. The spice flavor only had a cameo here. There was a subtle sweetness and it was much smoother than most warmers that Iíve tried. Highly drinkable, despite the high abv, yet not highly distinctive in taste. Medium bodied. Overall, nice although ho-hum. beaz1591 (238) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 15, 2013
English Pint. Very faint hints of malts. Dark amber color with minimal head and lacing. Taste of malts, hops and a bit of spices. Malty mouthfeel. A nice winter beer. Block (2688) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - DEC 22, 2014
A good all day winter beer. Malty sweet. A little bit of spice in the nose and just right at the finish.
