Dacrza (920) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2015
DATE TASTED: December 27, 2015... GLASSWARE: Duvel tulip...OCCASION: ... APPEARANCE: dark, ruby-brown body that is almost opaque; small, lonely bubbles are present; the head recedes to an off-white ring that suggests heavier alcohol than the normal ale provides--no lacing... AROMA: instantaneous impression of spruce, pine, and port... a second breath brings cinnamon, clove, allspice, pepper and slight hints of citrus--quite a bowl full of punch... PALATE: full-bodied, frothy, vibrant and warming, especially at the throat... a scotch-like complexity, smooth, memorable and long at the finish... TASTE: cinnamon, vanilla, allspice, chocolate, complex sugars, some dry wine, pine, and citrus suggests a punch bowl of flavors... the malts are engaging, with bread and natural elements reminiscent of a walk in the woods ...OVERALL: with quite a return for every sip, this holiday offering is sweet, strong, and slowly sippable... further, this is a seasonal whose price tag makes it even more alluring... still waiting to be disappointed by a Southern Tier offering, but it will not be tonight

Bottle from beer exchange. Pours a clear copper color. White head. Aroma of citrus and spice. Taste is on the bitter side. Just too aggressive for me.

Quick3Beers (1106) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 24, 2015
Pours a copper from a bottle, thin quickly dissipating head. Aroma of caramel, cherry cough syrup, clove. Flavor very similar, but heavier on the clove and the cough syrup is mostly a boozy syrupiness. Good beer.

tekstr1der (469) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Dark amber pour with almost no head. Aroma is overpowering coriander, nutmeg, citrus rind with a hint of cinnamon. Flavor is the same - wish I could taste fig since I love fig - but no, just a pile of spices I dont much care for. As with other ST flavored brews, they go to the extreme with flavoring. This ones not for me.

Another nice Southern Tier beer. Like a sweet Belgian Amber, with lots of vanilla, Kahlua and some pumpkin. Nice deep Amber. Had on tap at Rattle N Hum.

bhensonb (14748) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Bottle from jredmond. Pours clear copper with slight beige head. Aroma is juniper and mixed spice. Med body or so. Flavor is mixed - sort of pie spice mixed with twigs and/or juniper. Hence a bit woody. Interesting stuff.
