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.

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.

phaleslu (9779) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 21, 2012
12 oz. bottle shared by bsuedekum- thanks, Blake! Pours a cloudy chocolate brown with a bit of an amber hue on the edges and a small tan ring. Aroma of a host of spices- nutmeg, clove, ginger- along with chocolate, dark fruits, and a little earth. The flavor follows the same lines, with a bunch of spices on top of fruits, chocolate, caramel, and roast. Light-medium bodied, with a spicy mouthfeel and low carbonation. Crazy beer, and good.

BOLTZ7555 (3018) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Have had so many great brews from these guys...was hoping for more. Dark mahogany brew with hints of chestnut and an eggshell head. Mild toffee, caramel, nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger...but all subdued. Looking for bold and in your face. Missed the mark here.
