On keg at The Holyrood 9A. Pours a very dark brown colour with a ruby tinge. A fantastic aroma of spiced pumpkin, chocolate, marzipan, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Light CO2 prickle and a dry finish. Superb! Camons (13013) - Hasselager, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2012

Tap at Craft back in April. Dark brown with golden head. Aroma is smoke, bit of chocolate, roasty malt. Taste is similar, sweet chocolate, little bit of something spicy, I thought ginger. Nice roastiness.

bottle. dark brown and fairly thick with very small head. i’m 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 i’m also catching a little anise, which i loathe. that said, it’s 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 (7687) - 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. Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2012

Dark brown with off-white head. Aroma of malt and liqourice. Flavour with roasted malt too. 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.
