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.
Spicy aroma and taste. One of the best winter seasonal in my opinion. Hints of honey and cinnamon.

It’s a nice winter ale. Very yeasty scent and flavor. Nice spice, but has a little plastic taste to it. Good palate feel and nice color.Bottle beertholomeus (1813) - California, USA - JAN 17, 2016

Hazy amber with a small, off-white head.
Caramel and nutmeg scent.
Taste is caramel malt, nutmeg, cinnamon, grain malt.
Basic holiday spicing......but nicely restrained...
Not bad....I’d have another. shrubber85 (11582) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 1, 2016
Bottle. Nutmeg, cinnamon, and biscuit malt aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet nutmeg, cinnamon, biscuit malt and mildly bitter herbal hay flavor. Decent body. Good spice flavor without overwhelming the flavor.

Bottle. Pours brownish amber, no head. Smells of honey and spice. Taste is honey/ginger. UNCCTF (587) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - FEB 16, 2015
On tap. I swear to God, this beer smelled like ketchup. I thought I was crazy until my wife, who was also sampling it, said "Does this smell like ketchup to you?" Fortunately, things got better after that - some decent spice in the flavor. A fairly standard winter ale, but certainly nothing to write home about. climberbob (467) - Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Sweet aroma. First taste is of candy and spice. No head to speak of. Average beer. Not something I will go back to.
