Pours brown with a thin head. Aroma is spices clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. Flavor is a little sweet caramel and lots of spice. Nice Christmas beer, but a little will go a long way with me.

Voodoo (595) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Pours a deep chestnut brown with a slight head. Aroma of nutmeg, orange, cinnamon.....very nice aroma.....Taste is a spice bomb, so many assaulting the tongue at once.....nutmeg, coriander, orange peel, touch of lemon, bit os cinnamon, pepper??, sweet maltiness and ending with a hop bitterness. Interesting as a one off, but that might be enough for one night.

The color is caramel and licorice, like deep ruby. Head is thin. Mulling spices and bubblegum/candy in the aroma. Shortly bitter taste balances the sweeter aroma. Finishes clean, lighter bodied.

Pours dark brown. Nose is spics , cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, basically the whole sprice cabinet, also pine. Taste starts with a caramel malt, pine, then hits you with a ton of spices on the back end. Maybe a touch of bitterness from some orange peel. Pretty light body. Ok, I can't drink much of this though. Too much spice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the local brewpub. Pours a very dark reddish hue with minimal head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is of the classic xmas staples such as cinnamon, ginger, cloves, figs, allspice. Upon the first sip you are slammed with a perfect mix of the aformentioned flavors and a nice hoppy undertone. A fantastic christmas beer.

DocJitsu (1823) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Pours a dark amber with a thin, light tan head. Spicy nose. Cinnamon, light clove, and all spice. Medium to full body with some stinging sensation in the surface of the tongue and roof of the mouth. Too much clove in the very spicy flavor. Its like drinking potpourri.

On tap at the Perimeter Taco Mac (War Eagle!!). Pours a bubbly and relatively clear brown with a small, tan head. The aroma is immediately gin (this is a first, but that was the impression I got! Spruce and juniper, with some booze. It actually kinda works with the Christmas theme.) There are some notes of nutmeg (eggnog, perhaps?), caramel, and black bread. Sweet flavor, with some intense spiciness. Medium to heavy body, with a lot of savory spiciness. This is an incredibly unique beer, although it takes some time to get used to.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured brown, nice off white head and lots of lacing. Aroma of dark fruit and spices combined with some malt notes. Taste, spices are in my opinion a bit too strong and while they are well balanced with malts they kind of overpower the beer. Overall not bad, one of the best Christmas beers out there.

Smells like Christmas. Tastes like Christmas. 2Xmas indeed! The spice mix is almost overwhelming but very well balanced with the bitter/sweet notes.
