NikkTwist (3003) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2016 Draft at Bru Craft. This brew making an appearance in Dec 2016 after a long absence. Clear dark brown amber pour with soft off-white foam. Few splashes of lace. Big chewy caramel malts with a glossy edge. Chocolate liquorice. Clove. Allspice. Nutmeg. Vanillin. Shoe polish. Black cherry. Plum pudding. Not my favorite style but this one is better than most.

Reddish brown with burgundy hilites; aroma is very sweet malty and notes of tart fruit notes cherry?cranberry?; Flava is sweet upfront with notes of plum pudding, cherry and sassafrass but also dry and roasty notes near finish; feels light per style little fizz; finishes semi sweet and roasty with tangy fruitiness at the end

Loved this one. Had it with my daughter on a Christmas weekend. Nice light aroma of vanilla and some spices from a dark brown pour with a small head. The flavor was woody with a bit of vanilla, some caramel, and a lot of malt. An excellent finish with the vanilla washing away years of dieting and weight watching. I began to see bowls of ice cream dancing before my eyes.

blipp (8773) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 6, 2009
Draft. Pours brown with a thin head. Light malty aroma with vanilla and a hint of spice. The flavor has a solid dried fruity sweetness, vanilla, chestnut and cinnamon. A pretty solid winter seasonal.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Pours a deep amber color into the lager glass. Almost no head and minimal lacing. Scents of spice, ginger, cinnamon and brown sugar. Very sweet, syrupy taste and malty flavors. Sticky and coating mouthfeel. A nice winter warmer.

skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 21, 2007
This is a Liquid ginger snap with whipped cream and a cherry on top. Sweet, smooth and flat. Mouthfeel is thin, but the spices leave the tongue coated. There seem to be some dark fruits in the mash that add make this feel more ripe. Seemingly low ABV.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2007
Reddish color with light white head. Very sweet aroma with a spicy taste to match - kind of reminds me of Egg nog. Only had a small sample, so Ill have to try another next year. Overall, pretty good holiday beer.

Aftertaste of cinnamon-caramelized sugar. Sweet with banana-estery yeast. Thin mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Kinda blah. dryish spices on the finish.
