Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a deep red color with a short lived, tan head. There’s a spicy holiday bouquet of spice cake, mace, clove, and cinnamon. The flavor follows suit with all of those spices coming to mix with a bit of orange in a spiced up fruitcake sort of way. There’s a light bitterness on the back end. Full bodied and slightly oily on the palate. To the holidays!

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky brown color with a small white head. The aroma is cinnamon, all spice and sweet additionals. The taste mirrors the nose. an excellent winter warmer.

Bottle. It poured a murky brown color witha thin off-white head. The aroma was allspice with some dark fruit notes on the tongue. It has a thick mouthfeel and an overall warming sensation. Not bad, but I probably need to try this again when it is cooler.

Deep reddish brown, thin tan head. Cardamom, allspice, clove, ginger, molasses, orange, dark roasted malt. Medium heavy sweet and bitter, medium tart. Spicy and fruity - they did a pretty good job of imitating glogg.

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...

JPDIPSO (6236) - Wauwatosa, USA - JAN 29, 2017
Chestnut color with a light tan colored, small and slowly diminishing head. Spicy aromas, with nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, juniper, and orange zest. Hints of toasted malt in the backdrop. Initial pale and toasted malt sweetness is quickly overpowered by the spices. Some toffee and caramel work their way back in near the finish. Nearly burning linger from what seems to be ginger. I like it as a holiday sipping sort of brew. 12/12

BroadestTom (446) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2017
Aroma citrus, alcohol, clove, spices, Appearance amber, hazy, cloudy, minimal head, tan foam, Taste medium sweetness, Palate medium body, Overall they nailed the holiday spirit in this beer. Lots of spice with hints of orange peel. Not my type of beer so my raiting is low for that reason. It’s still a good beer from a good brewery. I would not suggest this beer to a friend.

Somewhat muted holiday spice brew. Not great, but not bad. Hint of solvent. Good body. Good finish.

kingaugusta (270) - Georgia, USA - DEC 12, 2016
Pours reddish amber with a quick off white head. Nose is bread and nutmeg with a little rosemary. Flavor is a blast of sweet fruit against a very festive and strong blend of spices. Very potent and unique. Finish is semi spicy and sticky. Just wow, what a one of a kind beer.

Bottle from Beer Trappe. Pours a deep copper. Aroma of spice and malt. Well balanced.
