A Mes rate. Bottle thanks as always to Jan & Charlotte.Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 27, 2010
Clean dark amber with a reasonable off white head. Rather sweet and spicy with a shit load of cinnamon. Lots of caramel maltiness and a strange hit of pepper and ginger in the finish. Interesting but Hopping Frog can make much better beer.
Bottle. Pours a brune body with a tan head that fleets quickly. Aromatic character of cinnamon, spices, allspice, incense like tones. Candle scents and a mild apple cinnamon note. Body seems thinner then i would expect for the given abv due to the strength of the spice content. Strong cinnamon notes, very mild ginger bite and a hint of vanilla and nutmeg to finish. A mild warming with a solid punch of spices. Nice, but i like ridiculously spiced beers. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 22, 2010
Lots of spice in the nose - ginger and cinnamon are most noticeable. Bready sweet pie notes somewhat. Pours amber with not much head or lace. Caramel, cinnamon, ginger, pie like notes - fruit cake perhaps? Light bitter in the finish with lingering spices. Not bad, just not really my thing.

Pours copper with a beige head. Aroma is heavy cinnamon and caramel. Flavour is caramel, light bitter, cinnamon and alcohol. To spicy for me.

bottle at Fort Wayne tasting - Pours dark ruby red and smells of cinnamon, nutmeg, and malts. The flavor is sweet and spicy, a full bodied brew that as intended goes very well with winter. Nicely done. adrian910ss (2591) - Doylestown, PA, USA - APR 6, 2010
22 oz bomber. Pours a dark yet clear coppery amber with a small beige head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Taste of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Too sweet for me and quite overdone. thewolf (12746) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 4, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 21, 2010
Pours murky chestnut with a small and rather fizzy off-white head. Finishes as a thin film. Heavy spicy aroma, "gløgg", raisins, red wine, cloves, cinnamon, light caramel. Medium carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Flavour is light sweet, lots of caramel, cinnamon, coriander, cranberries. Lovely Christmasy feel. Very dry finish with cinnamon, raisins and cloves. Nice spicy beer
Bomber. Pours dark red/brown with a small off white head that doesn’t stuck around too long. Aroma shows fairly intense spice. Pretty much indistinguishable from a pumpkin beer. Brown sugar, cinnamon, cookies. I suppose this is kind of Christmas smelling. The spice overwhelms any malt or yeast flavors (not to mention hops). I’m not a huge fan of Christmas beers period, but I suppose this is to be expected with the style. Not bad just not to my preference. Flavor is pretty much the same. Not overspiced but fairly close. Not extremely drinkable. This is fine it’s just ordinary and boring. If I had to drink a Christmas beer I’d still pick Great Lakes. Though I could do without all of them. stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - MAR 16, 2010
