Ericular (971) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 16, 2012
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.

Pours a clear mahogany - not much head, but that has to be due to the pour, and it does leave some generous lacing. Strong aroma has an overtone of cloves and horehound. Flavor has a subtle malty core and strong notes of cloves, caramel and horehound with a hint of cinnamon - and is that a whisper of pumpkin? Firm texture has plenty of lively fizz, leaving a cloves-y and horehound finish. Merry Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Winter Solstice/Festivus/Human Light or whatever!

cbfobes (2881) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2012
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.

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.

Slubgob (315) - West Hartford, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Tap into 20 oz mug. Brown, nice lingering off white head. Nose of cinnamon and clove, hint of ginger. Very prominent spices in the mouth,a hint of wine sweetness.finishes medium with warm lingering impression off fruit and spice - sure, Ill say mulled wine impression. A bit of hops. Nice take in the style, although ultimately not sure I really want more than one. After a bit, the alcohol starts to show, and Im quite sure one is plenty.

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.

jsmerig (1523) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2012
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

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.
