Reminds me of a beer version of gluewein, with some of the same flavors. Cinnamon, nutmeg, with a dash of citrus and other spices. Its like Christmas slapping you in the nose and mouth. With all the spice you cant really detect the alcohol that much. It is very drinkable since the body is somewhat light for a beer like this and there is no bitterness. This might be one of my favorite Christmas/winter beers.

12oz bottle. Unfiltered glowing ruby red body. Thin beige head. Very forward with the spicing, has a nice fruitcake thing going on, cinnamon in the aftertaste. Smooth and clean on the palate, this is a pretty nice Winter Warmer. Gloggy I suppose. Easy drinking for the ABV. Pretty good.

Smells a lot like G Thing from Magic Hat. Very interesting flavor. Spices of nutmeg, pine nuts and ginger hit you first, but the sweetness is balanced with a hoppy end. Finish is clean with very little aftertaste. Wouldnt want to drink a sixer but not bad in small doses.

Not bad. Not great. Taste is average. Palate stings. Many better Xmas ales out there. But if offered wouldn't turn down. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone BeerBill

Rcvd in trade. The appearance has a red/amber colored body with a thin white foamy head that must die within thirty seconds The smell has strong nutmeg and cinnamon with some added other "Christmas spices." The taste well, its actually slightly spicy through the nutmeg and cinnamon with a dry spicy aftertaste and finish. The palate has a light to medium sort of body with a decent bitter harshness trying to pound the tongue but ends up settling into the carbonation which comes across slightly smooth. Overall, I say this is a pretty good "Christmas" ale that I would have again.

Pours a dark but clear red with a white head almost non existent. Smells spicy and herbal, honestly a lot like a moxie soda if you ever smelt one. Light bodied easily drinkable and good level of carbonation. Not over flavorful at all, but quite an interesting beer with much complexity. There is a orange/ lemony citrus elements and little but some bitterness from hops. Mostly that herbal spicy flavor sticks out, but not Belgian type spicy, does still kind of remind me of moxie. Versatile and easy to drink, I feel bad for people (myself included) who may have passed on this before thinking it was a fad beer. Im surprised Im rating it this high but its all there.

lamas (1630) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle. DOB: 10/23/13 (I think). A slightly hazy ruby pour with a smallish khaki head. Hot mulled cider, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, oranges, citrus rinds, caramel, candi sugar, and a hint of peppermint in the aroma. Goes down medium-bodied. A unique ginger/caramel/candi sugar combo starts things off taste-wise. Spruce. Juniper. Fresh figs. Spicy as hell the whole way through. A touch of warming alcohol from start to finish as well. Xmas in a bottle!

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2014 A decent Christmas beer. Has a nice spicy aroma and taste. A little watery though, I wish it was stronger.

Bottle. Pours dark amber color with little white head. Aroma is very nice with nutmeg, spices, and dark fruits. Taste follows the aroma but was much more than I was expecting. The spices are a little too much for me and make this hard to drink.
