This is a very dark beer that is good on cold nights. Has a distinct malty taste. Good aroma and a creamy head. Nice palate with great overall taste. Well done.

One of the better winter seasonals I’ve had. Red/brown pour, nice whiteish head. Reminded me a little like drinking a windmill cookie, with some caramel toping poured over it. Had this on draft and bottle, definetely better on draft. Also I liked the 2007 version a little bit better, was just a little heavier. Had more characteristics of a Christmas porter to go along with the christmas cookie. I look forward to next year’s batch.

2005: This is really exciting beer! My last on the Highland Brewing Company listmy favorite NC Brewer. Some interesting fruit and nuttiness in the aroma. Pleasant bubbles and alcohol on the palate. Interesting flavor of toffee towards the finish. A little dry.

Dark red color with an off-white head that retains well and gives good lacing. Wonderful smells of cinnamon, clove, allspice, nutmeg, and caramel. Im digging the taste. Its got a little bit of hoppyness for balance, but this mostly tastes like cinnamon-sugar bread with a little bit of allspice and a caramel finish. Carbonation is on the higher side and body is bordering light. Im very happy with this beer and will need to get more of it next winter. Great job, Highland!

Even though I prefer the 2011 batch of CMWA, I still love this beer. Pours dark, translucent amber with light head and minimal lacing. Aromas of cinnamon, subtle nutmeg and honey. Slight hoppiness balanced by sweet notes of chocolate and vanilla. A great winter ale!

Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2010
Draft at redlight redlight. Pours a dark amber with an off-white head. Lots of nutmeg in the nose. Hints of cinnamon. Nice warm, wintry, coffee-cake aroma. The flavor exhibits these notes fairly well although a lot of malt comes through and covers some of the subtler layers. All said and done, it hits the spot on a cold winter night.

Got to try this amazing beer because of tiki taylor. Had it with dinner and it tasted like a desert honey bun. Want to find it bottled to enjoy this amazing beer at home!

raradel (343) - Atlanti Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2012
A little lite for my taste in the look, palate and body but has a nice nose and good depth of flavor. This one is better a little cool, and really great for a lighter winter brew. Try it!
