Pours dark brown with a strong aroma of allspice & toffee. It tastes of chocolate & bready caramel, with a finish of holiday spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, etc). Very smooth sipper thats not too over the top. Perfect way to cap off a day of battling against Black Bart!

Looks great, pours jet black with a good amount of creamy khaki head that leaves a good amount of lacing.

On the nose its pretty mild, doesn't really have anything special going on, little bit roasty. Not much going on here.

Flavor wise I'm really wondering why they are calling it a spiced beer, I don't pick up on any spice at all, reminds me of a really dark bock more than a spiced beer. It has a earthy hoppy note to it.

Mouthfeel wise it got a funky kind of viscosity, its slick, wet and thick.

I was really expecting a pepper/spicy/clove kind of flavor from this beer given what it was named after and given the spiced beer tag attached to it.

I am a huge christmas story fan and I expected it to be a spicy peppery explosion that reminds you of a bb gun or gunpowder but that was a complete miss.

Its not a bad beer by any means, but I was really let down by this offering, it looks great but beyond appearance it goes downhill after that.

Spiced amber winter warmer. Nothing too special.
