A decently spiced ale, with a touch of chocolate undertones, and a smooth, but slightly bitter finish. Livendadream (261) - New Mexico, USA - DEC 23, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2017 Can pours a clear dark brown color with a big fluffy tan head that lingers leaving lots of lace on glass. Smells like holiday cookies, dough and spice. Tastes of holiday cookies , nutmeg, ginger, orange, anise, cola with a hint of chocolate. Medium body, good carbonation, slick mouthfeel and a spicy finish. Good seasonal beer,that is very tasty! kevinator (2867) - The Colony, Texas, USA - NOV 17, 2017
Good holiday beer. Aromas and flavors of fig, spice and bread pudding but not too sweet. Nice color and body. jsquire (4677) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2017
Cola colored beer with a sticky beige head that foamed pretty aggressively when I poured it out of the can. Light spice nose. Lots of caramel and brown sugar sweetness with some cinnamon, nutmeg and other holiday spices. Dusty spice finish. Nice seasonal. BelgianBeerGal (4256) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2016
Half draft at Riverwalk Yard House. Dark brown pour with amber highlights. A little nutmeg and chocolate in the aroma. Flavor is really nice with some spice, dark toasted malt and a little citrus peel. Tasty for winter.

Dark brown with a tan, lacing head. Aroma of cocoa and spices. Dark chocolate, nutmeg, cinnamon. Nice festive winter ale. Andrew196 (2040) - Katy, Texas, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Can to shaker - pours a dark cola color, massive, coarse and stable beige head. Aroma of spiced pumpkin bread, nutmeg and cinnamon. Caramel and toasty malt hit hard at first.... Medium bodied... Spice kicks in next along with some slightly chalky cocoa. Strange, almost metallic bitterness hurts an otherwise good beer. ttoadee (1665) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 24, 2016
Deep dark brown pour, thin tan head. Nose is dark fruit, hint of gingerbread. Bittersweet. Middle is mild alcohol, some spice, short coco, hint of licorice. Finish is bittersweet, hint like a desert wine. Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 17, 2016
