shawnmurphy (43) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - JAN 9, 2017
Bottle purchased at the brewery in Brossard (worth the trip!). 750 ml corked bottle poured into a snifter. Appears a clear orange-amber color. No head, no lacing. Aroma is a complex medley of what’s to come on the taste buds. Here’s what I taste, in no particular order: ginger cookies, anadama bread, cinnamon, maple syrup, spruce tips, candied tangerines, caramel, honey, figs, dates, and candied nuts. It’s sweet, to be sure, yet not cloying; there’s just enough prickly bitterness and smokiness to balance it out. But, let’s be clear, at 10.5 percent and with this many calories, this is definitely a sipper -- ideally in front of a warm fire and the Xmas tree.

Darl coppery color with an off-white head with good retention. Aroma has notes of caramel, toasted malts, molasses, some cinnamon and ginger. Flavor is moderate sweet, toasty, spiced. Final with notes of honey and spiced hints.

PilsnerLieutenant8 (15) - Price, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 27, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2016 Un pur délice; un gâteau à la cannelle dans une bouteille. Parfait comme digestif. Une belle surprise en bouche même pour ceux qui n?ont pas la dent sucrée. Belle couleur.

Bierdimpfe (550) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2016
Cloudy copper color with snowfall activity. Creamy beige 3 finger head, lasting around 15 minutes, making strong lacing. Flavors of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, dark berries, cherries, herbal spices and roasted grains. Slick medium body with the perfect dose of prickly carbonation. Medium strength finish with a short lingering feel of gingerbread and candy cane. Overall good quality craft. The flavors are nice and well refreshing. The alcohol is incredibly well hidden. Good intensity, but lacking balance from an overly syrupy sugary feel. Would be more pleasing with a thicker body. I find the Red racer gingerbread a better choice.

Bottle. Very spicy aroma with spruce and cinnamon and other spices. Hazy red-bronze under no head. Potent spruce and spicy cinnamon flavour with sweet golden raisins and moderate bitterness. Medium body, moderate carbonation.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2015
750ml bottle from Broue ha ha in Gatineau, Quebec. Orange-brown in colour with a thin white head, light lacing. The aroma is of spices, dark fruits, cloves and candy. The flavour is very spicy, some candy. Spicy mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes with more spice. A straight forward spicy Christmas beer.

750ml bottle. Clear reddish copper body, medium to small beige head, average retention, poor lacing. Aroma of yeast, herbal hops, bitter herbs, autumn leaves, ginger. Sweet taste: tons of caramel malts, ginger, herb liquor, brown sugar, cinnamon cookies, a touch of booze. Lovely.

robinvboyer (4311) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2015
Dark amber/ ruby pour, with a medium off white head. Incredibly earthy aroma. Loads of sweet, brown sugar malts, with alot of spices, and earthy ginger. The finish is light to medium bitter with an intense ginger earthiness, and strong spicy finish. It’s not a spice bomb, but it’s close. Too earthy I find though.....
