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.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2014 Vince bought me a growler from beverage world. Interesting beer. Not sure how to describe. Spice herb vegetable mix. Odd. Hmm.

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 I’m being honest and I actually didn’t come close to finishing the bottle.

Bottle. Brown pour with tan head. Nice spice, chocolate, and Christmas like aromas. Similar spicy flavors, chocolate and roasted tones.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2015 On tap at Joni’s. 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. Don’t need any more. 12/2/15 It’s 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.

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 (14982) - 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.

22oz bottle, shared by Tmoney99 at his 10K tasting. Bottled 11/09/13. Mostly clear red orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves decent lace. Clear orange color, mostly. Thin off-white head, leaves good lace. Good, smooth, creamy carbonation. Lightly creamy texture. Bigger body. Good bready malt, lightly spicy. Moderate sweet taste. Very nice, smooth, easy-drinking winter ale. Not overly sweet like some of these can be. Nice graham cracker, vanilla aromas.
