Christmas in April! Bought a few on clearance from Dry Tavern. It reminds me of Juicy Fruit gum....in a good way. Very well balanced in all ways. Excellent, Southern Tier!

One of the best herb/spiced beers I ever tasted. Well balanced & the high abv is hidden well. Cheers! A- (90-94) score range

I like this beer. It's a bit on the hoppy side, but a good Xmas ale. Nice cinnamon aroma, good spice and orange caramel flavor.

Classified as a Winter Warmer. The beer is a beautiful Amber. Smell is strong and complex. Cinnamon notes are strong in the taste - and that is good - but is gets obscured by the mish-mash of other flavors. This is a fine beer but lacks direction.

12 oz. Bottle
DOB: 10/19/17

Poured into a tulip a pretty nice translucent dark golden amber color, pretty nice carbonation, with a small fizzy/creamy light tan head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is pretty nice, malty, with some nice orange, ginger, cardamon, cinnamon, clove notes. The taste is also pretty nice, with some maltyness, nice touch of sweetness, with some orange, cardamon, ginger, cinnamon, and clove. Medium body, ABV hidden very nicely with this one. Overall, a very tasty winter ale. Nice job ST!

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass.

Look is a dark ruby amber with little to no head.

Aroma is deep rich candi sugar, red fruits, and spice.

Taste is exactly like aroma. It really builds upon itself.
