2XMAS is as spicy as you can get and still be called beer. The label says "Brewed in the tradition of Swedish Glögg." Southern Tier says it has figs, orange peels, cardamom, cinnamon, clove and ginger root. The cardamom taste is strong, and I also taste black pepper and a hint of grapefruit.
This is just the kind of thing I was hoping for from Craft Beer Cellar's Advent box. I'm very glad it was included. It's interesting and expands my horizons, even though it's not the kind of beer I'd lean to regularly.
