At first pour it has a nice head with a reddish brown body. You immediately can smell the spices nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves. Taste the spices are ever present with malt and hints of citrus. Overall it's very good beer though let it warm up bit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I would say its a crowd pleaser.A wonderful winter seasonal brew with a bite. I dont taste the figs as much as as orange peel and nutmeg, it definitely hits the mark as an xmas beer. Quite drinkable on its own and wonderful with a warm bowl of curry. Pleasant carbonation, a bit sweeter than I normally like but you cant tell this is a triple caliber abv. Would definitely buy again, Im not sure I would want to drink more than one in a sitting though.

On tap at Craftsman, pours a clear reddish amber with no head, a lot of spices on the nose with some sweetness of the malt, flavor has a lot of spice on the front end, too much for my liking, tastes like liquid popori, ugh.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear deep ruby with a tiny head. No head retention or lacing. Aroma of figs and cinnamon with a little bit of orange thrown in. Maybe some other spice that I cant identify. There really isnt a ton I can pick up on outside of the spice. The spice continues in the flavor. Lots of cinnamon with some ginger, orange and figs. A little bit of roast and brown sugar comes in towards the finish although it is faint. Mouthfeel is smooth with plenty of sweetness ending with a sticky moderately bitter finish. Overall, cant say I am overly impressed with this beer. I dont like overly sweet beers and this is one of them. In fact, I prefer Anchors holiday beer over this., Not something Im likely to pick up again.

Pours a clear ruby red. Deep and complex aroma. Nutmeg and cinnamon dominate the nose. Citrusy notes along with sweet malt and spice finishing with a cherry like bitterness. Nice but a little too much for mass consumption. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2012 Pours a nice deep red color with a large tan head that quickly fades into a small ring. Not much head retention or lacing, but the palate is just thick enough to keep it from feeling lifeless. Aroma is perfect for a winter seasonal - cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste is those spices at first, and then fades into a nice toasted malt finish. Very nice beer for the holiday season.

Bottle pours a dark red brown fair amount head. Tastes smells of cloves spices ginger small hops sweet candy sugar. Weird it wasnt bad but same as like Sam Adams ginger bread Im just not into that spice combo but if you are this would be great right up there with Goose island Christmas.

On tap at Brick Store. Pours a clear deep amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of cinnamon, nutmeg and other spice with a hint of backing sweet grains. Flavor starts with the spices listed above and a growing note of earthy deep from the grain.
