rumproasts (5324) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2012
bottle. dark brown and fairly thick with very small head. im sure this would have been better when it was fresher, but i was able to find a bargain bottle, so i picked it up. the cinnamon is interesting, but im also catching a little anise, which i loathe. that said, its a decently executed winter warmer. would be nice around a campfire on a chilly night.

suprchunk (2994) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Black with toffee highlights. Small tan head with a little bit of lacing. Roasty aroma of black malts. Creamy smooth taste of coffee and caramel. Slight vanilla and a small hint of cinnamon and pine. Little bitterness in the back. Not bad.

teorn88 (7647) - Rimini, ITALY - MAY 6, 2012
On tap. Pours a dark ruby / brown colour with a medium beige head. Aroma is sweet and malty with toffee, caramel, cloves and cinnamon. Taste is similar with roasted malts, cinnamon, cloves and plums. Mouthfeel is medium to full with soft carbonation. Sweetish finish. Overall, the cinnamon is very well blended into the beer and flavors are deep and complex. Christmas spices, though, are not really my kind of thing.

umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - APR 2, 2012
Nice black pour with a small beige head. Smells like black licorice. Taste is also black licorice. Maybe a little dark fruit too. No hops or bitterness. It does warm a bit at the end like the name says. Too much black licorice for my liking but not bad.

davey101 (751) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 31, 2012
I assume this is the 2011 vintage. 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A - Dark brown body with a small mocha one finger head. Some large bubbles creating some edging. S - Loads of winter spices. Sweet roasty malts and some candied sugar. T - Cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice, roasty caramel malts, and some dark candied fruits. Higher ABV is hidden well. Nice balance between the malts and spice. Mouth feel is medium bodied. O - A tasty winter warmer thats head up well over the last few months.
