12 ounce bottle courtesy of AWISLguy and shared at a tasting, 10/6/14. Pours a clear amber with a large foamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of heavy spice, including cardamom, ginger, clove and some banana notes. The taste is banana bread, ginger, clove. Medium bodied, mild lingering spice. crossovert (13914) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Seems based on the old winter warmer but miles better. Vanilla and spices elevate this brew. Dogbrick (13789) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy dark amber color with a medium thin off-white head that evaporates steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, spices and oak. Medium-bodied with flavors of gingerbread, caramel malt and oak. The finish is sweet with a cinnamon and ginger aftertaste. Above average overall.

Bottle thanks to Adam! Pours a hazy amber with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has strong spice with a bit of a pine must and a sweet grain backbone. Flavor has sweet bread with Christmas spice with a bit of caramel. shrubber85 (11618) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle. Nutmeg, cinnamon ginger and toffee malt aroma - nutmeg is most dominate spice. Amber with large off-white head. Strong spicy toffee malt flavor - no one spice dominates in the flavor though. Not bad - just like the typical pumpkin beer without the pumpkin. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Clear brown, off white head. This reminds me of a pumpkin beer minus the pumpkin. Spices, toffee, caramel. Tasty. BVery (11364) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle. Smells like Christmas! Awesome spice nose, smooth full flavored taste. Somewhat malty. Very good! cubs (10714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle @ Steve’s Super Bowl party. Thanks Armin! Pours a hazy deep orange appearance with a fizzy off white head. A lot of ginger in the spicy noise. Some caramel apple as well. Tangy and tart flavor. Slight celery / veggie note that may just be coming from the ginger. Cinnamon and vanilla too. Light bitterness. My last favorite NG beer in ages.
