Shot (485) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2016
Bottle. Pours red with a half-inch head. Aromas of cinnamon and caramel. Flavors are caramel, spice, ginger and bread. Finishes with a bit of earthy hoppiness. Clean, fizzy mouthfeel. Not bad, but not exceptional.

kingaugusta (259) - Georgia, USA - DEC 21, 2015
Pours hazy blonde with a white head. Nose is sweet and slightly citrus and herbal. the flavor is fairly thin and leans toward light citrus and a touch of coriander. light carbonation not quite sure how this is considered a winter warmer

NikkTwist (2890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2015
Draft at Fado in Philly. Top of a keg. Hazy red chestnut pour with a flux of choppy beige foam. Juicy and spicy red ale. Cinnamon. Blood oranges spiked with cloves. Nutmeg. Allspice. Not adventurous. Ultimately mediocre.

Traditional winter warmer, not too much different than the fall seasonals.

ryanhunter_4 (234) - Strathmore, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 10, 2015
12 oz. bottle poured at my brothers place in Methuen, MA. Pours a cloudy amber color with minimal head. Smells like cinnamon and nutmeg. Tastes about the same. Might be good at Christmas but im not loving it in July. Drinkable though.

Can from Signal Variety Plaistow, NH. Aroma is holiday spice--cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice. Appearance is crystal clear amber with minimal sparkle and 1 finger width off white fluffy head with only fair retention and minimal lacing. Taste is like the nose--mainly spice. Its not so much a beer with hints of holiday spice but a holiday spice drink that qualifies as a beer. Palate is medium bodied, moderately thick with lively carbonation with a little bit of a zing at the tip of the tongue. Finish is mostly spice and short with hint of bitterness. This is an enjoyable holiday beer. No complexity and not terribly interesting but for a particular mood at a certain time of year it would fit the bill.

Nice caramel brown color and decent aroma, but this ale goes downhill from there. Spices but not much malt in the flavor. Unpleasant finish. A whole lot of better winter ales than this attempt are out there.

jcnielsen (3302) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 29, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2015 Bottle. Pours a brownish color with white head. Cinnamon, spice, toast aromas. Cinnamon, nutmeg, spice bomb, brown sugar, toast flavors. This is a spice bomb Christmas beer. This is the type of beer that Id maybe be in the mood for once or twice a year, but in many ways it is just an overly spiced caricature of a seasonal style Im not too fond of.

A nice aroma but not very strong. Very nice cloudy brown body and very thin white suds. Smooth on the palate and a subtle aftertaste. The flavor has a nice winter spice to it. - Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
