12oz bottle picked up at Total Wine & Spirits in Bloomington. Pint glass as consumption vessel. Aromatic from the beginning with a heavy dose of cloves, nutmeg, and a hint of cinnamon. Resembles a murky, cola brown with a quarter finger of tan head. Taste continues the holiday spirit with spices maintaining the expectations set through the aroma. It really brings to mind pie spices and sweetness throughout the sip. Towards the end there is a malty, almost roasty, finish that rounds out the beer well. Feels like the spice increases as it warms up. Its a pretty good beer for this time of year. Worth purchasing/ordering when you have the opportunity.

akoeninger (732) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 10, 2016
A strong, highly spiced dark ale. Deep ruby color. Aroma and taste is holiday spices and dark fruit and some caramel. Warming and full bodied. A lot of nutmeg would go well with holiday pie

MatiF96 (131) - POLAND - DEC 6, 2016
Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana niska, ale utrzymuje się do końca na powierzchni. W aromacie ciemne słody, ciemne owoce i słodki przyprawowy powiew (cynamon oraz inne świąteczne przyprawy). W smaku dominują ciemne słody i owoce. Przyprawy dodają charakteru, ładnie się komponują. Alkohol jest dobrze ukryty, wyczuwalne jedynie delikatne grzanie w przełyku. Mimo dość słodkiego aromatu w smaku jest dobrze zbalansowane, na finiszu utrzymuje się wytrawny posmak czekolady. Dobre piwo na zimowy wieczr

This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy light brown colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque black brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was medicinal and malty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a lingering malty aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of black malt roasted malt brown malt and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

This one smells terrific, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and maybe some toffee or caramel. Looks very nice, a murky reddish brown with a small beige head that fades quickly. The flavor was too "spicy", the flavors just didnt mix for me. I was hoping for more, Dark Horse usually gets it right, but not this time.
