22 ounce bottle. Pours reddish brown with an average tan head. Aroma of malt, spice, and vanilla. Taste is malt, spice, vanilla, and caramel. I thought this was not too spicy. Enjoyed the vanilla. Tasty.

Vanilla and caramel with a bit of spiciness. This is really more of a malt beverage at the end of the day. Not my cup of tea if Im being honest and I actually didnt come close to finishing the bottle.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2015 On tap at Jonis. So not worth the hype, , but decent. Pours copper/ brown with a soapy beige head with staying power. Taste mainly caramel and bready malts and vanilla with some winter spices in there. Not much hops or body to it. Too light for a winter ale. Erring on the sweet side. Sort of peculiar, really. Dont need any more. 12/2/15 Its just plain not good. Hats off to them for an incredible marketing effort but it is a thin, watery and synthetic tasting brew. The aftertaste just keeps getting worse as it lingers. Do not like.

jbrana (640) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Quite a bit of caramel, though light and crisp, and a soft amount of hops. Has a slight spiciness that is reminiscent of cola. All in all, a peculiar beer, but good.

"Had in Reno via the TN connection. Very nice mellow warmer, especially if u dig vanilla, the main player in aroma and flavor. A winter solstice in a different label. Chestnut color smooth medium feel, light on the hops. Thanks Lou."

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours deep amber/brownish with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of caramel and pale malts, some fruits and spices, vanilla, light bitterness, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer, could be better, could be way worse.

Tmoney99 (13901) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle. Poured clear dark copper color with an average off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with good to excellent lacing. Toasted malt and spice aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy balanced spice flavor with a medium dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Good seasonal beer.
