Draft. Poured clear dark ruby color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy spice sweet aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy balanced spice flavor with a medium to heavy sweet spice finish of moderate to long duration. Solid seasonal beer that exceeded my expectations.
Backlog entry prior to closing out 2017. Well rounded, as expected. Nothing too unusual. BroadestTom (457) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2017

Taster at source - nose is potpourri. Sip adds potpourri. Dry. Malty. Not too spicy. Growing on me.

Bottled on 11-03-16 12 ounces. Thin head Deep caramel in color. Yeasty malt taste with subdued spice profile. Smooth with light carbonation Very drinkable Christmas ale. Above average Christmas ale! ccex (1390) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2016
12 oz bottle pours a hazy reddish brown with a small head and little lacing. Aroma has cherries, cinnamon, ginger, and plums. Taste is sweet and spicy with a hint of bitterness in the finish. Body is medium to full with average carbonation. An interesting brew that got better as it warmed up. It made me think of Swedish glogg. I’m not a big fan of Christmas ales, but at $1 on closeout in May, I had to try this. Not bad at all. Claves77 (260) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2016
Deep caramel color, thin leave is nice finger high. Spicy nose, as is taste, a little too much for me. SirLimpsalot (4698) - SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2016
@ Fat Heads 16-3-10: Mycket söt med toner av burbon, ingefära och socker. Speciell men ok. gyllenbock (10025) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2016
