Great winter Ale - this is what Christmas is all about, you can taste the cinnamon on your tongue after you swallow. Good stuff!

All the bubblegum sweetness and minty freshness of a candy cane is packed the in the aroma. Translucent brown color, with a fleeting tan head. Sweetness dominates the flavor throughout, supplemented by bitterness in the middle, but the flavor isn’t overwhelming. Medium body and carbonation. A pleasant, but weak and very sweet, winter beer.

Draft at mellow mushroom Asheville. Smells like a forest. Fantastic! Big notes of wood and pine on the tongue. Clean finish. Very nice.

Clear red brown in color with off white lacing. Candied fruit aroma with distinct coffee bean on the palate. A fun expression of a Christmas beer. Maybe a little hyped though. jw0406 (1315) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 17, 2011

expecting some sort of barley wine. Had this on tap at Willards Tap House in largo fla. Fairly clear, Nice clean attractive aroma. Initial flavor are spicey or sumthin and comes across rather creamy on the co2. Bitter alky builds thru the session. Medicinal finish. fluffy (2461) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - DEC 5, 2011
probably one of the better winter brews ive had. amber hued, with a sticky head. flavors of light brown sugars, a bit of a gingery bite, with a bright clean finish. easily sessionable.
