Bottle thanks to Dmac. Pours out an attractive ruby red color with a small white head and a solid amount of carbonation. Aroma is of sweet cherries, fig, spice, nutmeg and a slight warming alcohol note. Taste is solid, very similar to the aroma, sweet cherries, fig, nutmeg, spices, light alcohol, some sweet notes in there as well.

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.

Stumbled upon this today in the supermarket and made an impulse purchase. Good buy. Heavy spiciness in the nose, along with cherries and cola. Nice dark appearance with tan head. Rather clear. Palate has some oak along with the cola fruit and spice. Nice, this plus the cold weather has me ready for the holidays.

Pours dark amber mostly clear with a beige head. The aroma is strong, sweet, and brings plenty of Christmas spices so pleasant in the nose with notes of cinnamon, almost apples as well. The flavor brings sweet clovey Christmas flavored malts, which would mean the spices of the season for anyone who wants to criticize my descriptions for lack of something better to do. The flavor ends a bit bitter but smooth overall.

The aroma is spices, caramel backbone. The appearance is clear deep ruby, white head. The flavor is spices, like nutmeg, cinnamon, orange peel, mint, clove, kitchen sink, etc, some caramel. The finish is purely spices, slight burn Interesting, if a bit of a "done before" feel Medium in body, slightly thick. Good overall. Definitely Christmas-y in spirit.

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

Christmas spices waif from the glass. The pour is clear ruby red like a Christmas ball. The flavor has a nice warmth for Christmas eve. Perfect for Santa would be a pint and some hot wings, that is what I will tell my kids anyway.
