(Bottle ). Deep amber complexion with modest tan head. Lot of spice over deep malt flavor. Mark’s choice for annual Cole Christmas dinner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
Draught @ Albion. Clear dark amber-burgundy with creamy dark beige head, spicy caramel malt aroma, medium carbonation, medium bitter caramel malt taste with ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon, somewhat thick body, long spicy finish. A good winter warmer. mcberko (19837) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 29, 2017
12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy copper amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out notes of cinnamon, subdued nutmeg and light caramel. Flavour is along the same lines, with nutmeg, cinnamon and brassy malt. Spicy and malty. Not a fan. edgallow (4629) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 12, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2017 Draft pours amber with a off white head. Aroma of caramel, ginger, cinnamon, fruit and some chocolate. Taste is caramel and spice b3shine (9260) - Indiana, USA - JAN 7, 2017
Draft to taster at Schlafly Bottleworks. Looks solid; a mostly transparent caramelish orange with very light caramel head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells malty with notes of caramel, ginger, clove, and citrus. Winter Warmer-esque. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. Decent, but unmemorable. demannu (451) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 25, 2016
Warming winter brew with spices and sweet notes of caramel and fruits. Thin light body. Drinkable and seasonally appropriate but not a standout brew.

Gingerbread bullshit with icing. Clove and ginger are high here, in other words, and mash malt pervasive. Sweet tangy finish with spice. Bottle. beerme31 (707) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - MAR 19, 2016

On draft . . . somewhere. Rating from notes. Pours a deep reddish color with an off white head. Aroma of cinnamon, all spice, ginger, clove, and citrus. Flavor is dominated by spice, with some bready and sweet malt notes. Full bodied, with thick mouthfeel and creamy carbonation. Finishes with ginger.
