Big beefy head and pours easily. Initial great promise before it hits the tongue with a weird incongruous cocktail of hot spices which dominate everything. Undrinkable drain pour. Bill Becker (1370) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - APR 8, 2015
Nice pour. Plenty of foam sitting on a medium gold brew. The foam ain’t going anywhere soon but what’s shrinking leaves lacing behind.
The smell is festive; spicy with some cinnamon, a bit of clove, and fruity ..cherry like flavour when I swish the beer in my mouth, dark fruit when I don’t swish.
Medium body with lightish carbonation.
This is delicious. Stuu666 (14609) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2015

Bottle. Murky orange pour with a monster head and tons of retention. Kind of a weird malty, caramel, holiday spice thing going on here. It’s okay, not sure I’d buy it again. martinrumsam (571) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2012
Bottle. Reddish brown pour. Off white lacing head. Aroma is spicy -nutmeg and coriander prominent and orange peel with some malt. Spiciness continues in the taste with ginger emerging. Nice light dry bitterness also. Carbonation quite high medium body. A nice seasonal quaff Scipio (1185) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Pours a red with a full and frothy white head. Pleasing aroma consists of apple, ginger, cinnamon, lemon, and orange. The fruits and ginger are the dominant qualities in this aspect. Taste is big on spice. Lots of ginger, along with cinnamon and nutmeg are on top. The fruitiness is still readily apparent, but serve more as undertones. Spicy cinnamon aftertaste is rather short. Dry finish. Medium bodied with some fizzy carbonation in the mouthful. Lots of lacing remains. I thought this was a good beer. While I’m usually not the biggest fan of this style, this one is more different than others and there is plenty here to enjoy. saxo (19357) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2012
