Vintage 06. Poured a reddish amber. The head was thin and off white. The aroma was sweet and spicy. The flavor was layerd. Started with spice and little noticeable hop and finished with a very distinct sweet spice. Nutmeg? I was actually very impressed with this beer. It was the best spice beer Ive had. It didnt do too many spices or not enough, very well balanced.

Thanks to hopdog. Pours a translucent orange amber with an average off white creamy head. Aroma of nutmeg, pie crust, vanilla and a lot of various spices. Flavors of the same with tons of nutmeg/vanilla that was covering up any malt/hop presence.

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

Pours a hazy copper on tap with thin tan head and good lacing. Aroma of caramel and toffee malts with and a hint of spice. Taste follows, clean finish, spice kind of falls off quick. One of the better highland beers I have had.

The aroma is very sweet and syrupy with both chocolate and maple. There is also spices, caramel, and vanilla. The appearance is deep amber with a three finger head. The flavor is like the aroma. There are a lot of good tastes going on but I must admit they come in stages and not always complimentary. The palate is smooth and the finish bitter. Overall a very unique winter beer.

Draught. Pours a clear amber color with a smallish tan head. I get almost no nose off this. Taste is malty and interesting, with a bit of caramel in there. Pleasant bite to this beer.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - OCT 6, 2007
2006 Vintage, 1L swing-top bottle. Deep copper color. Thick, creamy tan head. Heavy creamy aroma of toffee, buttery cream soda. Flavors of oak aged cream soda, could you get a little more vanilla in here?? Heavy bodied, super creamy texture, with no detection of alcohol.

jsquire (4335) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2007
Deep reddish amber color with a thin beige head. Cinnimon spice nose, but I also get artificial vanilla and raspberry. Very malty caramel with buttered toast, cinnimon, artificial vanilla and other spices. The fake vanilla is interferring with my enjoyment, and I get a berry fruitiness that the description doesnt indicate.
