COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer’s name sums up the ideas of bringing the best together to celebrate. It is filled with seasonal flavors from generous amounts of toasted and caramel malts, mixed with equally generous amounts of honey, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. We feel it is the perfect libation, filled with flavors of the season.

queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle. Ginger, nutmeg, and molasses malt aroma. Smells just like ginger bread. Hazy copper amber with a moderate tan head. Strong cardamom, ginger, and nutmeg flavor, and a touch of molasses. Medium body, soft carbonation. Cardamom was a little overpowering. It’s a spice better used with a light hand.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2018 Aroma is spicy with notes of nutmeg and clove. Appearance is caramel in color without much head (poured a small sample from the bottle). Palate is fizzy not thin. Taste is spice-filled with a slightly bitter finish. A great Christmas drink!

radagast83 (8624) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2017
Kind of appalling that it was on tap weeks before Halloween, but whatever - what can you, right? C'est la vie. Poured a very slightly hazy orange color with a medium sized, fluffy off-white head. Aroma was cinnamon, herbal notes, spices, nutmeg. Very malt forward in both aroma and flavor. Light spice finish, which was pleasant. Sweet.

ManVsBeer (11175) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2017
Bottle from Swing Bridge Beer & Wine, Surf City, North Carolina. Amber-brown with no head. Sweet and spicy, although neither are too overbearing. Good winter ale with a small strength to it.

3.2
MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2017
Bottle. Pours a clear orange beer with a big off white head on top. Aroma is massive herbal, lots of spices, cinnamon, honey and nutmeg and all those spices overwhelm the palate. Very herbal, lots of Christmas stuff going on for sure, not much else. Nice beer, a bit unbalanced.

3.7
jflopsu (1862) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 22, 2017
Pours a reddish-brown with tan head. A winter spice (cinnamon and nutmeg) aroma. A sweet taste of winter spices, cinnamon, and caramel malts a sweet winter spice aftertaste.
