bottle. clear red under a small, cream colored head. inviting spiced nose with cinnamon, orange peel on top of dark fruits. light astringency at first, but quickly fades into malty sweet goodness. the spices are potent with noticeable bitter orange peel. nutmeg is also quite bossy. bitterness also fades as it warms. floral, perfumey hints in the finish. medium-full body. another classy ST beer.

Ron (3794) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 25, 2012
On tap at MacGregors. Pours a deep red with a very small off-white head. Very warm, inviting aroma of spice, ginger, fruit, and some Pumking. It definitely smells like the holidays One of those beers I find myself continuing to smell. Taste is sweet and full of spice. The finish is not surprisingly spice. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation. Very nice holiday beer.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Beer 31 Asheville trip, also nipped off the wifes sampler at Thirsty Monk. Medium amber. Aroma of potpourri. Flavor matched, just an awful cacophony of cinammon, nutmeg, clove, faint ginger, freakin Santas elves deodorant in a box levels of spicing. Some may like this. Others, like myself, feel like this is being trapped in a Yankee Candle store and held captive. Yikes. After that rant, wish I could have tried it mulled, that could have worked better. Oh yeah, we didnt even finish the sample pour between the two of us.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2012
12 oz bottle. Clear garnet brown with a brief head. Nose is clove, nutmeg, orange peel, allspice and toffee. Medium to full body with a tang. Taste is candi, clove, orange peel and nutmeg with earthy, grassy hops, maybe some fig. Substantial and satisfying with lingering bitter spices. Suprisingly restrained effort from Southern Tier.

umich03jm (3513) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle. Reddish brown pour with a very small head. Aroma is a spice bomb. All spice, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. Tastes like a sweet spice bomb. Burnt sugar and spices dominate. Some light toffee too. Medium body. Overall, too sweet and too much spice but its not terrible.
