bottle. Poured a auburn reddish color. Aroma is strong spice and cloves. Taste is nice and smooth with a crisp spice finish.

Really solid rendition, great balance and awesome body! Spice is lower for a holiday beer but still stands out as so. Go get some if you can!

Didnt like this so much. Seems to have some sort of Koelsch yeast maybe? Some popcorn in there with a weak body and not much else going on.

Copper color with very little head. Aroma is light cinnamon, with some cherries and honey. Flavor has some ginger and cinnamon, with honey and caramel sweetness. Light body with lively carbonation. Not out of this world good, but solid. Could use some stronger aromas and flavors.

Theres a lot of fruity sweetness here in the aroma, but also a mild kick of spicy hoppiness. Its still plenty malty in the nose though. The flavor is about the same. A nice fruity sweetness with a little bit of spicy hop, but still plenty malty. It marks a nice dry finish. Its not anything remarkable, but its nothing bad. Just bleh.

Nice amber hue, but a poor head and off smell of slight acidity. Uh oh. Some decent toffee notes through this layer of infection, with some added nice spiced cider aromas. Slightly leaning towards cloying, but overall if this werent infected wouldve been ok.

A deep amber in appearance with a slightly spicy aroma. Taste malty and does have a warming amount of alcohol to it. Not as much spice in the taste as other seasonal.

Pretty dang good... a little bit sweet, masks the higher alcohol content. Definite malt flavor as well. Good looking beer as well... nice full brown color. 12 oz.. bottle.

On cask at the Dig Pub in Cedar Park. Nice big malt bomb! Just a bit of carbonation but it goes down way too easy given the ABV. Reminded me of cask ale in London. Yum.

Pours a clear bronze with a tan head that dies completely. Smells sweet, candies with a little spice. Tastes of sweet malt, a little fruity with a spicy finish. Medium and smooth in the mouth with the perfect amount of carbonation. Very drinkable and delicious.
