On tap at Oakroom, pours light brown, has a very strong spicy aroma of cinnamon... plenty of alcohol in the taste... a bit too much cinnamon and ginger for my palate... Wittales (762) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Appearance was clear reddish brown with creamy beige diminishing 1/2 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, all spice with soft caramel malts. Taste are spices upfront then hints of crystal and caramel malt middle. The finish is warming alcoholic one:( Palate was soft smooth creamy CO2 with medium body, then alittle slick off balanced finish. Overall a solid effort, the finish needs to be softer in alcohol. drsordr (2655) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 26, 2016

nuts, smoke, minimal head, medium bitterness, medium body, soft carbonation, a light christmas ale jsquire (4483) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Dark reddish amber color with a creamy khaki colored head. Nose of ginger and a bit of tart fruit. There is some caramel sweetness in this with a pinch of tart fruit, acidity, and a finish of dusty nutmeg. The ginger is there in the finish. The ABV is present but not intrusive. Not my favorite of the spiced Christmas beers.

Seasonal Draft. Dark brown to ruby in color. Malty flavor, followed by a mix of holiday spicyness. BeerFanDan17 (1120) - Brunswick, Maine, USA - DEC 8, 2012
A tasty seasonal ale with some obvious bite, warming, but still spiced. Dark red pour with a short head. Hint of pumpkin for sure.

Bottle. Pours hazy brown with a beige head. Aromas are spices and citrus. Flavors are caramel malt and spice. Not much else going on here. Pretty ordinary. kmyers8807 (176) - Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2010
Bottle. brown pour with ample head. lots of malt, with flavors of ginger and spices. hints of fruit and nuts. not my favorite beer. alexsdad06 (10376) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2015
Bottle from notes. Pours a clear deep reddish amber color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel malts and big holiday spices, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, hints of tart fruit, some metallic character, this was a bit too much about the spices and not everything else.
