Appearance is extremely dark brown with a nice thick head (good lacing around the glass).

Smell is slightly roasted malt with spices coming through (cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, clove). There is also some brown sugar, orange peel, pumpkin and biscuit aromas present. The smell is not real strong, but there is some complexity.

Taste is smooth roasted malt with cinnamon, allspice and cocoa coming through. The spices are noticeable but not overpowering. The finish has a nice hoppy dryness that plays well with the roasted and slightly smoky notes.

Mouth feel is creamy with a tingly sensation. The body is medium/heavy but not too heavy due to the carbonation.

Overall this is a well balanced winter seasonal with a focus on the roasted malt. The spices come through nicely without being overpowering. There is some sweetness, but the balance is good overall.

No idea as to the date on this one.

A: Pours a very dark brown with a decent sized and fizzy tan head. Decent head retention and so-so lacing. Just a little splotchiness here and there.

S: Interesting aroma. Chocolate and oranges? Huh.

T: Hmph, lots of ginger and cinnamon initially. Light orange and some very bittersweet cocoa. Finish is more cinnamon and maybe a hint of star anise?

M: Medium bodied, heavily spiced.

O: Not bad. Pretty typical "winter warmer" type beer. Orange is a nice unique bit but it's very mild in the flavor so it doesn't add a whole lot. Overall decent brew.

Pours pitch black with finger width foamy head. Head retention and lacing are both mild. Strong black licorice aroma with mild cinnamon/nutmeg. Mildly roasted taste with black licorice, cinnamon and nutmeg. More of a licorice aftertaste. Not a bad beer, but not something I would seek out to drink.

22oz bomber poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights and 1 and 1/2 finger of tan head

Smell: Spices including cinnamon and nutmeg

Taste: Spice forward with many holiday flavors such as allspice, nutmeg, and cocoa

Mouthfeel: Moderately thin

Overall: A nice festive beer that is a bit one-dimensional. If you enjoy christmas beers and love holiday spices then this will be really enjoyable. If you want complexity then this may not be for you.

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.
