Smells a little like a Christmas beer, but flavor is nothing more than a brown. Better than Bell’s Christmas beer.

Dark red. Malt and spices, caramel malts, toffee raison, dark fruits, plum maybe. Same in taste, bready, toffee, caramel. Roast, kinda hoppy in an herbal pine way. Has a bit of dry/hot alcohol. Pretty good.

This was rather OK. Nutty and dark with some spices but a bit too hoppy overall. Could have been a bit smoother.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a brown color with a spiced malt aroma. Taste is spiced pumpkin, nutmeg, and toast. Good complex flavor upfront but thinned as the beer was swallowed. Light malt aftertaste, but lacking in flavor throughout.

Aromas of toasted cinnamon, sweet pumpkin and bread. Dark brown copper with minimal head. Herb and pumpkin up front, malty, bread notes in the finish. Pretty smooth for relatively high alcohol percentage otherwise nothing special.
