KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - DEC 20, 2012
12oz bottle. The pour was a clear dark cranberry red with a small (less than 1 finger) light brown creamy head that receded steadily, down to a small puddled film and small collar with excellent full sheeting of lacing. The aroma was a complex mix of scents with a light grain malt and a sweaty yeast along with notes of citrus (orange peel), ginger, clove, cinnamon, dark fruit (figs and raisons) and a pronounced Glgg (mulled wine) odor. The taste was lightly sweet with hints of dark fruit and Glgg from the get go, becoming a tad bitter and rather yeasty with hints of orange peel and cinnamon somewhere in the middle and a spicy alcohol ending. The flavor lasted a nice long time following the swallow, with a spicy yeast infused alcohol warming sensation lingering on for a little while longer. Mouthfeel was almost medium in body and dry in texture with a somewhat bold carbonation. Overall this brew is what Winter Warmers are all about, lots of spicy flavor and a good alcohol warming at the end...

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.

emacgee (4661) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 26, 2017
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 (6094) - 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 (435) - 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. Its still a good beer from a good brewery. I would not suggest this beer to a friend.

kingaugusta (264) - 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.
