12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Raleigh (North Hills). Enjoy by February 17, 2017. Rusty orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of graham cracker with faint ginger. Obvious graham cracker notes in the taste with shades of cinnamon, ginger, and clove. Finish isn’t too sweet. Fine for what it is but I’m not excited about revisiting. geologyguy (1661) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - DEC 9, 2016
Cereal malt smell and nothing else...a bit disappointed in that...taste is the same with light spices... disappointed that it isn’t more spiced and hearty...one dimensional....in Syracuse for 15th high school reunion matty (446) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Pours an amber color with a quick white head. Aroma is sweet with a little bit of spice. Medium body, the flavor is a combination of sweet honey and cinnamon. Finish is a little sweet. Not bad. Zymurgeist2 (2364) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 2, 2016
On tap at Jake Melnick’s. Pours a clear amber with beige head. Ginger dominates the aroma with other spicy esters. Faint dark fruit. On the flavor, the spices dominate as the ginger fades. The ginger aroma and spice flavor are a little too assertive, but not a bad offering.

Nice spice aroma. Not too heavy, still smell hops and malts. Nice orange color. Taste has great seasonal spice and some light hops. Nice balance not too heavy in either direction. Not a winter warmer, but just a nice spiced ale. Tap GenDV138 (7699) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - NOV 20, 2016
