This beer pours deep brown with a tan head. A perfectly spiced winter warmer that has a great flavor. One of my favorite Christmas drinks. Rasmus40 (20639) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2013

On tap at Dark Horse. Poured almost black with thin head. Aroma full of spice and light roast. Light carb med bod. Tingly spice taste thats slightly bitter with a hop finish. Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle while in Akron, OH. 12oz poured into a pint glass. Good two finger head with a deep brown-hazy pour. Aroma of all of the Christmas favorites...allspice, nutmeg and cloves. It also smells of breads and Belgian yeasts. The taste was very smooth in that the spices blended well together with the malts and mild hop profile. The yeasts gave it a slight Belgian taste with a smoothness. Although it did have sufficient carbonation. Finish is a little boozy with spices that linger. I really enjoyed this one.

The aroma is spices, clove and Belgium yeast. Pours a dark brown almost black with creamy light brown head, mostly diminishing with good lacing. The taste is bitter/sour. The body is medium, the texture creamy but bitey with a fizzy carbonation and the finish bitter. OK for once a year. RichTheVillan (7835) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2013
