So this was a definite yes for me. Upon opening the bottle you get hit with the scent of the spices. The beer tastes just as described and if I could compare it to something it would be a spic cake with hits of beer. I really enjoined this beer however those who don't like heavily spiced beers I would not recommend this.

From the Holiday 12 pack
Pours a hazy medium golden color with a smallish white head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of pepper, anise, nutmeg and cinnamon overpower the nose of this one. Light sweet maltiness and a hint of wheat grain round out the aroma. The flavor is over spiced gingerbread cookies. There's a hint of beer in here, but the spicing makes it hard for me to find. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick spicy mouthfeel. Not the beer for me.

A- slightly cloudy orange/gold with a slightly foamy white head. Minimal retention

S- not much there but slight hints of spice

T- definite Christmas spice noted but none are very pronounced and it's somewhat muddled

M-thinner and slightly towards the watery side

O- it's ok but nothing to get worked up about
