Bottle from Siciliano’s, Grand Rapids, MI. Clear dark brown, almost cola color with small, beige tan head. Aroma is spicey, cinnamon, oranges, all very dry. Flavor is spicey, orange, a little biscuit, heavy alc, wow, really intense, fruity. Medium to light with active carbonation. Pretty intense, reminds me of the stone-nogne-jollypumpkin collaboration a little bit. JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Bought this at the brewery. It had nice notes of honey and citrus on the nose after pourin deep brown. On the palate it seemed heavy with some notes of cloves, corriander, and nutmeg. heykevin (1287) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - JAN 8, 2005
Hazy copper. Orangey gingerbread aroma. Light bodied, touch of caramel and honey, with heavy spice character. Tons of ginger and plenty of orange (tang) as well. Strange and not all that enjoyable. Hides its alcohol well for 9+ %. JCW (1279) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2003
Spicey beer in aroma and flavor. I'm guessing maybe nutmeg. Sweet taste of honey and acidic taste probably from the orange. gws57 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Found this one bottled at Binny’s in St. Charles, Illinois. Hazy copper red pour with a thin white head, profound spiciness in the nose and body, with a bit of citrus and lots of ginger, nutmeg and clove. Sweetness comes on late. This is a phenominal beer.

Dark red brown. No head. Nutmeg, cinnamon, molasses. Sweet with a small amount of bitterness. Alcohol is apparent and upfront, heavy body. Fairly straightforward, but tasty.

dark amber-orange hues with a dash of tan head.Nose is very aromatic,seasonal spices like pumpkin pie and spiced apples.Too bad the flavor isn’t quite as good as the aroma.the orange and spices come out but the brew looses itself somewhere. Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle. Nice beer. This brew would be cool to age in rum barrels. Warms my tummy.

Pours a dark amber with a white head and an aroma that is stronly spicey. The flavor has a slight malty sweetness and is predominately spicey with ginger, cinammon, and orange peel. RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - JAN 5, 2008
They definitely weren’t kidding about the spice. Reddish amber pour with a tiny white head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice, maybe a dash of clove. Flavor is malty and spicy, rich with the aforementioned spices ... almost too spicy, in fact. Sweetness up front with a light, bittersweet finish. Good body and mouthfeel. Not a bad little holiday beer.
