On tap at Map Room, Chicago. Christmas spices not too overpowering. Body may be a touch thin, but nice balance. Nothing too extreme-- just a solid spiced beer.

330ml bottle from a friend. Reddish pour, with a thick head. Smells nice, lots of spices. Nice spicy flavour, with lots of body, and a bit sweet in the finish. Very nice.

12oz bottle. Pours a amber/copper color with a thin off-white head. Nice cinnamon spice with toasted malt flavors. Balanced and very drinkable.

hiddenvariable (210) - pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2007
draft at ds. pours a clear amber with a thin off-white head. smell of nutmeg, cinnamon, and anise. more spices in the flavor, with the anise coming out more as you drink it, and with a pretty solid smack of fruity berry esters. fairly dry finish, with a touch of the ol bitter, and a tingle from the spices. light medium body, lots of carbonation. probably the best christmas beer ive tried, but im not a huge fan of the style.

Malt and ginger aroma on a dark amber brew. Flecks of debris detract from the appearance. I'm not a big ginger fan but this one's done pretty well, not overdone.

I seem to have developed a high sensitivity for ginger, and to my palate, this is essentially a ginger beer. Lightly sour with noticable alcohol. A nice beer, but not really one that suits my tastes. I should have followed the labels recomendation to have this with a holiday meal. Thanks Dogbrick.

This slightly hazy copper colored ale pours with a beige head that fades quickly, but still leaves a faint lace on the glass. The aroma is faint and hard to pinpoint. Malt and a hint of spice is noticable, but not overpowering. The taste is malty with a touch of cinnamon and citrus, with little bitterness on the rather clean finish. A hint of alcohol sweetness lingers on the finish. The beer feels full on the tongue, with a touch of carbonation effervesence.

Not a lot of carbonation when pouring, but it tastes like just the right amount. It is a light copper color. You can definitely taste the spice. It is very well balanced. Just the right combination of hops and malt to go with the spices. It actually seems light in body with average carbonation.
