12oz bottle from ABC on Apalachee. Brown pour, off-white head. Aroma is cinnamon spices, dark fruit. Tastes are strong spices - cardamom, clove, cinnamon. Also caramel and dark bread. I would have thought that the strong spices would have put me off, but I like this in comparison to other xmas brews. It’s not too sweet. travita (5008) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle. The smell is soapy, fruits, prune, and apple pie. The look is clear, a beige colored head, and red brick colored. The taste is fruits, apples, spice, and sugary. SHIG (4964) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle: Poured a murky brown with an off white to tan head. Aroma is spicy and herbal. Taste is a mess of herbal cough medicine, sweet malts, and evergreen tree finish. jkwalking05 (4745) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2013

Cloudy amber gold pour with one to two fingers of sandy white head. Nose and flavor are an absolute spice-affront to the sense. Bitter and astringent dry spices with warming alcohol and some malt sweetness. You know EXACTLY what this tastes like...

Clear copper color with a short lived khaki colored head. Nose of some cinnamon, nutmeg and Vic’s Vaporub. Very spicey holiday ale with lots of cinnamon, spice, caramel and brown sugar. Some odd medicinal sense in the background. Dusty spice finish. It drinks easier than 8%. This is a big, spicey winter seasonal. thegreenrooster (4562) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Pour is a murky brown with a small tan head. Aroma is loads of ginger with some other holiday spices. Flavor is more spice with a little star anise and ginger. Mouthfeel is very heavy and there is a dark candi sugar left on the tongue after this goes down. Decent spiced winter beer but way heavy though. rondphoto (4494) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 7, 2015
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of Christmas spice and malt (in that order). Clear bourbon colored deep amber, bubbly beige rim head, spots and dots of lace. Taste is malt that is immediately doused with a heavy dose of Christmas spice. The spice carries to a lightly hopped finish. Good, not great, pretty much a small dose brew. maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear and very dark brown with a smallish white head. Nose is very spicy in the winter warmer style. Taste is also spicy, and the spice overwhelms the rest of it.
