Great tasting holiday beer. The cinnamon notes are not overbearing. There are hints of nutmeg as well. You could drink more than one of these without it becoming overbearing GregMooreNH (265) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 1, 2017
Pours ruby amber with thick head. Aroma is nutmeg, caramel and cinnamon. Taste is cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar. Finish is boozy. A good holiday ale. JDBaker11058 (2427) - Maryland, USA - JUL 25, 2017
appearance: clear dark copper, light tan to off-white head. aroma: caramel, cinnamon, hint of clove and ginger. taste: malty sweet, with nutmeg and cinnamon noticeably present, with some toffee and brown bread; I didn’t get any pumpkin notes. finish: sweet, lingering spice notes, average palate. notes: Forgettable. My go-to winter daily drinker is still--until dethroned--Sam Adams Winter Lager. This is a heavier, less-balanced version. Bottle from somewhere.

Winter in June! Found this while cleaning my fridge, must have been left behind over Christmas. Pours copper brown with a light beige head. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, toffee, fruity esters. Flavor is sweet, caramel, fruity esters, cinnamon, nutmeg. Drinkable, but not by Amy means good.

Shared 12 oz. can. Pours clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma of a Christmas candle. Taste is liquid potpourri. Way too much spice here. Drain pour. darbeer75 (1125) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - FEB 15, 2017
Aroma: odd spicy aroma that is neither cinnamon nor nutmeg; scary; Appearance: clear amber pour with thin white head that dissipates quickly; Taste: unfortunately, follows nose. Gross. Palate: medium body with long, odd finish; Overall: would never get again. StoutBeerReviews (275) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 10, 2017
Straight gingerbread. mild in flavor overall. chalky dry finish. pretty simple but works as far as the whole holiday thing goes. btheise2 (27) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2016
Very drinkable ale. Taste is nearly all malt and cinnamon. As others have stated the cinnamon and nutmeg flavor builds with each sip. islay (3121) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2016
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 12-6-16. “Enjoy By 02/15/17.” Pours a clear, slightly amber sable. Moderate to large amount of taupe-colored head. The head has a golden hue that reminds me of golden egg nog. Nice color and nice head. Spicy aroma features scents of ginger, raisin rice pudding, and pumpkin spice. The smell does evoke Christmas but also is somewhat artificial. The flavor is more subtle than the aroma in its spiciness; rather, the flavor is dominated by malt flavors. Toffee and some wood and leather. Cinnamon comes on strong upon multiple sips. Nutmeg too, I suppose, although that’s a less distinctive flavor. Light to medium body. Perhaps a touch undercarbonated. Forgettable palate effects. Fits the bill. Very good appearance, pretty good taste, average aroma, and below average palate. Overall, an acceptable although not inspired craft beer.
