Cereal, spice, cough syrup aroma. Bad Hitler-meets-Santa label on a squat 12-oz’er. Beer is dark, ruby brown and clear. Spicy, chalky flavors, on the sweetish side. Spice becomes cloying and eventually turns into a chore to drink, like a garden variety pumpkin ale. Medium-heavy body, effervescent carbonation. ABC, Betton.

On tap at 3R6P. Mild spice notes, some brown sugar and nutmeg, allspice. Coppery amber clear with thin creamy lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts moderately sweet with brown sugar and caramel, nutmeg, allspice, clove. Medium sweet finish with light bitterness. Sweet nutty-spicy after.

Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Murky medium brown pour, sticky off-white head that leaves a decent film of lacing. Aroma has some Christmas spice accents, a touch of licorice. Flavor is pleasant with some Christmas spices, a touch of orange peel, some nutmeg and cinnamon and just a touch of nuttiness. Mouthfeel has a nice stickiness to it. tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours deep amber with two fingers of fluffy tan head. Nose of birthday cake batter, Palmolive, ginger, lavender. Medium body, sweet. Really flowery flavors which tastes kind of soapy to me. I’ve had one sip and not sure I want another. Jethro6191 (508) - Indiana, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Ginger is dominant and overpowers everything else in this ruby colored Winter warmer. Cinnamon, plum, and fruity notes are there in the background. The body is light to medium with a moderate level of carbonation. The mouthfeel is smooth. The finish is sweet with a tinge of hop bitterness.

Draft @ Fatheads. Cloudy brown pour with the typical Christmas spice aromas. Large amounts of spice in aroma and flavor. Lots of nutmeg, cinnamon, toasted malt body and ginger in the finish. I’m glad the ginger isn’t over powering. The orange peel gives a nice citrus note to cut the spice. Pretty well made winter brew. AdamChandler (5178) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Lots of nutmeg in this bronze beer. Smells like cherry Pepsi. Caramel and lots of brown sugar. And cloves. Quite nice I could drink a growler of this but the heavy Coriander detracts. Patrickctenchi (6731) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 1, 2013
