Pours a copper reddish with a very small slight off white head. Head dissipates rather quickly. Smell is cloves and banana and cinnamon and bubble gum. My God it smells like Christmas. Medium mouthfeel with plenty of carbonation. The taste is very interesting. It was a good bit piney-er than I expected. A bit of alcohol warmth. Honestly, theres a little too much going on tastewise - all the smells are represented in the flavor - maybe just a bit too much. Not really sure if I like the taste, but I know I like the smell a whole lot more.

rougeau13 (2688) - Richmond, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2014 Deep clear reddish brown with a cream colored head. Aroma of pumpkin pie, clove, fig, berries, and pine. Taste is well spiced, malty and slightly sweet, just barely boozy, and a little bitter. Medium-full bodied. Very well done; lots of spice/holiday flavors without overdoing it or lacking the necessary backbone.

Pours a copper color with light khaki head (1 finger). Nice aromas of spices (cinnamon, nutmeg), fig, malt. Nice balanced flavors - spices, fig, malt, and a touch of alcohol. Very nice for the season.

jflopsu (1410) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2014
Pours a clear dark amber. Has a sweet spice aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg and some peppermint. Has a strong spice flavor of cinnamon and nutmeg with malts and some caramel. Has a lingering bitter malt and spices tastes like Christmas!

ElGaucho (2394) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle. Lots of spice in the nose with heavy notes of clove. I havent had a lot of glogg, which is usually served warm, so I dont have an expert opinion on how close this brew is to glogg. However, knowing how well Southern Tier nails their beers and how unique this brew is, Im fairly certain its a close match. Really tasty once it warms.

bkurtz (1068) - MOROCCO - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle - Pours a clear, deep copper/red with a quickly dissipating head. Aromas of ginger, Cinnamon, and clove, a cross between pumpkin pie and typical winter spices. The aromas carry through in the taste with a malt backbone and some tart notes. A lot going on, nicely balanced and interesting. Good winter brew.

jhamp9 (1739) - Corinth, Texas, USA - DEC 1, 2014
Clear red brown pour with a beige head that fades down to a ring. Strong spice aroma. Lots of ginger, nutmeg and orange peel with some nutty toasty malts. Taste follows but has a slight medicinal character. Full body.
