A spicy nose invites notes of nutmeg and cinnamon on the palate. Finish gives me notes of black tea. Dark copper, thin, light tan ring lacing. Pleasantly sweet in my book.

According to the calendar, cracking this twelve ounce can open and pouring its contents into a clear pint glass may be a little late. But, if it's a good brew, a few days shouldn't matter. The ale is copper-brown, mostly brown with a slight beige enduring head. It smells like pumpkin pie. It tastes like pumpkin pie with a heavy hand from the spicer. That's too bad, because the malt mouthfeel is excellent and a more mild version of spicing would have been wonderful. However, the various spices here don't seem to compliment each other when they're delivered with this much intensity. This is a nicely smooth ale overpowered by its spicing.

Murky brown/ruby hues, quickly dissipating head. Smells of caramel, malt, and spices. Tastes of dark fruit, caramel, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, vanilla. Thin, light to medium bodied, mild booze presence. Not bad, not great.

12oz can from Tavour. Dark amber/brown pour, fizzy head. Aroma is cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste leads with the savory spice, minor sweetness, light malt profile. On a chilly night, this really hits the spot.

Hoppin' Frog Frosted Frog Christmas Ale (Winter Warmer), 8.6% ABV. Pours opaque brown with a one-finger off-white head that left no lacing. Nose is ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Taste follows, slightly sweet, slightly bitter. Mouthfeel is thin and watery, and light on carbonation. Overall very good.

Poured a dark brown color with a one finger tan head that dissipated quickly. No lacing. Malty nose with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste follows the nose but more pronounced. However, the spice overwhelms any other flavor. No hop bitterness. Medium body and light carbonation, which feels too light.
