Pours clear dark brown with slight head, smells like carrot cake and slight licorice with a light mouthfeel, this is a great ale for the colder seasons.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #72 (Jan 2013):

Very aromatic, reminiscent of chai tea. Well spiced but continues to remind our palates that this is a beer. Definitely one of the more drinkable spiced beers out there. A perfect example of what extreme beer can be, something fun and drinkable without ripping you palate to shreds.

STYLE: Spiced Ale
ABV: 5.2%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round

LOOK: Hazed rusty amber, tight tan head

SMELL: Gingerbread, cinnamon, clove, mild caramel, faint alcohol, peppercorn, plumy

TASTE: Toasty, very smooth, black pepper, slightly bitter, bread crust, ginger, clove, cinnamon, piney, earthy, hint of sweetness, mildly pungent drying finish

Poured from the bottle into a medium sized snifter glass.

Deep amber red, nearly mahogany brown with some good clarity. A nice easy two finger light tan head makes and appearance with some thin bubbles. Creamy consistency, some small finger lacing and creamy collar.

Woah this nose is impressive. Literally smells like gingerbread, perfectly. Nutmeg and brown sugar and cookie dough. Not overly sweet either, with classic clove and Christmas like spices. Just incredible.

Palate comes a little less impressive but still manages to deliver. Milky skim mouthfeel in the mid palate, but with some of the watery spices coming through. More tea and nutmeg action and green hop herbality mixing in. Milky finish on the aftertaste, with some cool mint like hop character interestingly. Tannic tea like after taste and herbal aromas to come in nicely, sumac, sage, and black tea air to match.

It's palate flavor is memorable, but a bit not that perfectly showcased. It easily though could pass off as a great Christmas brew interestingly, with a very unique twist.

A: 3.75 - Very dark amber beer with a light but frothy head.
S: 3.5 - Sweet caramel malt mostly. I thought I caught a whiff of spiciness, but I couldn't smell it twice.
T: 4.0 - Like the smell, a strong initial sweetness with some notes of cocoa, followed by some interesting spiciness, though I can't identify it at all--it's an interesting bitter flavor with a little tartness, a tad vegetal. (oh, just looked at bottle and I see it identifies them. I don't get the saigon cinnamon (which is usually super cinnamony) , but the cardamom makes sense, as does the pepper, and the pepper detectable. I'm bumping up my initial flavor because it's a blend that's more than the sum of the parts.)
M: 3.75 - Soft texture, creamy
O: 4.0 - Very interesting beer, though one I'm unlikely to buy again.

Aroma- gingerbread. Slight head.

Color- clear amber.

Taste- an interesting spiced amber. Reminds us of a spiced winter warmer with a gingerbread cookie. Starts spicy with cloves dominating the beginning with mellowing cinnamon sweetness like cinnamon toast with a faint hoppiness in the finish. Label says it's brewed with saigon cinnamon, ginger, clove, cardamom, and black pepper. 39 IBUs

Tested on 1/25/14. Poured from 650 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass).

From a bomber

A- Murky amber with a white head. It looks a lot like apple cider

S- Love this! Lots of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and allspice.

T- I really like this. It is very spicey, with notes of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. It would make a nice holiday beer. The beer gets a tad bitter at the end.

M- Decent, good carbonation. Slightly astringent.

O- Awesome! I don't find too many spiced beers that are pale; usually can only find spiced stouts. This tastes great, reminds me of Pumpkinator's little brother. I would definitely get this again.

Poured from a bomber into a Samuel Smith pint glass with a moderate hand. This bad boy survived the flight back from Dallas in the suitcase, despite TSA's best efforts to disrupt my well-engineered anti-shock system (read: wrapped in underwear). No date. First sampling from this brewer... Ever! [Confetti]

A: Pleasant chestnut amber with good clarity. 1-2 fingers of off-white head with good retention. Scant lacing.

S: The spices are definitely there. Clove. Is that an actual clove lodged in my nostril? Traces of cardamom. Green pepper corns. Quite herbal. Somewhat medicinal. Eucalyptus. Light bread notes as I get towards the bottom of the glass.

T: Surprising bitterness initially that carries throughout. An herbal dryness is fully established by mid-way. Very dry finish. A slight malt presence arises near the end. The spices are prominent (mostly clove, cinnamon, cardamom) and accentuate the bitterness. The lack of sweetness is distinct.

M: Moderate, rather smooth, carbonation. Body is fuller than the average amber and suits the beer well.

O: I like spices. I like spiced beers. Well, some of them. This one is pretty good. It is certainly amber in color, but the similarity between your garden-variety amber and this brew stops there. This is a dry, herbal concoction. I enjoyed the first pint, but I'd recommend sharing large bottle formats.

Prost!
