Oh no, no chilled mug! Bottle. Touch of nutmeg, cinnamon, gingerbread cookies, pours hazy orange with a creamy beige head. Taste nothing but spices and watery malt, the finish/aftertaste is however pleasantly of dark bread crusts before the pumpkin connotations come rushing back in.

jhliesen (836) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Bottle-poured a hazy, amber color with a small head. Aroma was spicey with some malt. To me, the aroma and taste was much more to a pumpkin ale as opposed to winter beer. Nice try, didn’t work. Bruisin Ales.

Aroma is spicy. Malty, nutty, earthy. Hints of cinnamon and nutmeg, other spices. Finish is a bit thin and watery.

Draught->shaker. Cloudy copper with decent head. Aroma is malt, spices, touch of pumpkin. Taste is more pumpkin over spices, unbalanced.

maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a moderately thin head. Nose is a bit spicy with those winter spices. Spices really come through in the taste, too. Easy to drink, just seems like a run-of-the-mill winter ale.

3.5
GranvilleTim (1857) - Granville, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2012
Orange-yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is nutmeg and ginger. Taste is a nice balance of ginger and nutmeg with the malt. Nice lacing. A nice first beer to try from this company.

2.6
jonas (8280) - Garching close to the monks, GERMANY - NOV 7, 2012
Bottle. Christmas spices and nuts in the aroma. Cloudy orange amber, low golden head. Mellow mouthfeel, medium body. Slightly sticky, spices are a bit cloying at first, light fruit, a bit mealy. Not my cup of tea.

3.1
ROGUE (2216) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - OCT 10, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a two finger soapy white head that lasts. Aroma of orange peel, coriander, caramel, and toast. Taste has strong citrus, coriander, biscuit and caramel malt, and faint grassy notes. The body is medium with lots of creaminess and a very smooth finish.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2012 Poured from a bottle. Dark copper color with small head. Smell of Malta and spice. Reminded me of Christmas. Nutmeg, honey, spice. Smooth beer. Worth trying again in Winter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
