Dark golden red body below a one inch tall white head. Head retention is the tits, sticky lacing too. A good lookin beer!

Cinnamon, "allspice", some sort of spiced flower.

Subdied but present spices. Has a certain breadiness about it. Drinks lower than the stated 6.7%abv

Smooth, low carbonation. Medium to medium-thin mouthfeel.

Very easy drinking spice Christmas ale here, gets a bump for drinkability. The appearance and aroma are top-tier for the style in my opinion. Glad I got to try it, thanks MaxSpang!

A- Pours a light copperish red color with a thin off white head. Head becomes a ring of bubbles around the edge and leaves a bit of spotty lacing.

S- Picking up the typical winter warmer/Christmas ale spices, but nothing over the top. Maybe even a bit lighter than most, but still good.

T- Follows the nose really well. Again maybe a tad lighter in the spices than most others for the style.

M- Medium in both body and carbonation.

O- Very solid and good beer. If your not a huge fan of the spices of the style you might want to try this one as the spice is there but nothing over the top.

Enjoyed this on tap at Fat’s head.

A: Pours a dark amber hue with a thin, 1-finger, white head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace.

S: Spicy malty aroma with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg.

T: Smooth spicy malt flavor with hints of cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.

M: Medium body and minimal carbonation.

O: Delicious winter warmer – one of the best Christmas’s ales I’ve had.

Pours a crystal clear reddish amber color with a thin half finger slightly off white head which gives to skim. No lace is left on the glass. The aroma is of cinnomon and nutmeg with a hint of piney hops. It smells almost like a pine tree at the end. The taste starts out with some sweet malt and gives way to a big cinnomon taste with a nice nutmeg flavor. The end has a touch of vanilla with a pine tree hop bite. The mouthfeel is moderately carbonated. Overall a very good beer nice big aroma and a nice big flavor to follow the nose a must try.

Had this on 2011-11-25 in Pittsburgh, PA

A - Amber-brown with a 1-finger tan head and mild lacing.

S - Mild light-medium roasted malt and "Christmas" spices. Pretty mild aroma.

T - Ginger, caramel, cinnamon, orange peel, light sourdough. Reminds me of a midly-rum-flavored fruit cake.

M - Light-medium body and medium carbonation. Bubbly.

O - A tasty (but not epic) seasonal.
