Bottle poured a clear orange amber with a lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of toffee, carmel, light fruittiness and light spice. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of toffee, carmel, spice and light fruittiness with a smooth lingering malty finish. redpooba (411) - Texas, USA - FEB 24, 2012
An amazing beer that can be bought in the grocery stores of Texas. The spices and seasonings make you feel like your in a log cabin around a fire even when Texas doesn’t offer a winter. SarahH648 (7) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2012 does not count
One of my favorite seasonal beers from this brewer. High alcohol content, and nice and warming finish makes this a great winter beer. adamaustin (38) - Louisiana, USA - FEB 16, 2012
Not much on the nose for me, but makes up for it with taste. The rich, golden-brown color somehow enhances the flavor for me. Not bad! Strykzone (7659) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Had a sample of this at Ginger Man in Austin. This poured dark brownish and was opaque. No head and no carbonation seen or felt. The nose offered raisins, other fruit, spices, and malt. This was a bit of a mess to me. Raisins ans spices were tasted but there was an undistinguishable mish mash after that. Not for me.

Bottle. A friend brought this back from their trip through Texas. Poured a copper color with a tiny white head. Aroma was caramel, malts and gingerbread. Flavor was caramel, some malts, and bread. Not as dark as I thought. Some spice hop. Very smooth beer. Average to a little above average beer at best. taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Dark, not much head. Malt and spices in the aroma. Taste of brown sugar or molasses. Oakes (18873) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2011
Amber-orange colour and no real head. Slightly ruity, maybe with a hint of ginger. Light fruits and caramels. Light body, with some caramel and gentle orangey, gingery, spicy accent. Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2011
Draft @ Hoppy Monk El Paso. Has no head but the holiday festive hue is red and pleasant. Aroma has spiced candi sugar, candied cherries. Is sweet but thankfully not cloying, there is a dry finish bc of the spice. Cinnamon. Thin flavor/body and not hot but feels strong in the head. Not bad, just too thin. high_on_hops (809) - Burlingame, California, USA - DEC 12, 2011
An amber body with a bubbly off-white head. The aroma is mainly malt with some nice hop notes. The taste is varied, with some forward sweetness from the malts with the hops and feel of the carbonation followed by a long malt finish.
