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...

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.

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

kingaugusta (259) - 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.

Hiledd (100) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 23, 2016
Cinnamon and cherry aroma, reddish brown color, clear. Low head retention. Full body with chewy malt texture. Clove overpowers flavor, with dried fruit, cinnamon, and toffee malt. Slow supper in a cold afternoon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A solid seasonal beer, lightly spiced and really smooth for the high alcohol content.

jsporrer (830) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2016
Pours a semi clear medium caramel with a thin tan ring. Strong aroma of fall spices and sweet cinnamon. Medium body with some lacing. Tastes of dark fruits with a variety of spices. Not harsh or bitter but the spice mixture isn?t that enjoyable. Too much of a nutmeg or allspice flavoring. I?ve had worse but I?ve also had better.
