3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2010 21ST AMENDMENT IS A LEADER IN CANNED BEER AND ONE OF THE TOP FIVE CANNED BEER BREWERYS IN THE WORLD, MAYBE TOP THREE, BUT OF COURSE THIS IS MY OPINION SO WHATEVER RIGHT?, ANYWAY SPEAKING OF OPINIONS THIS BEER IS HIGHLY UNDERRATED. FIRST OFF THE ART ON THE CAN IS GREAT FDR CHILLIN WITH A ELF AND A BEER AND A STOGE, HILAROUS..AS FOR THE BEER ITSELF, IT POURS A DARK RICH REDDISH BLACK WITH A CREAMY TAN HEAD. THE AROMA IS OF WINTER SPICES MOSTLY NUTMEG AND CINNAMON. THE FLAVOR IS DOMINATED BY THE BITTERNESS OF HOPS BUT COMPLIMENTED WELL WITH A HINT DARK SLIGHTLY BURNT CHOCOLATE NUTMEG AND CINNAMON NOT THE BREWERS BEST BEER BUT STILL QUITE NICE ESPECIALLY ON A COLD EVENING.

Can. Very dark brown to near black opaqueness with a moderate, dense beige head. Aroma is spices, toffee, soft nuttiness, dark fruit, yeast and light caramel. Taste is sour berries, dark fruit, spice, light toffee and chocolate covered nuts. Body is light-medium with strong carbonation and a lingering zesty spice. Ends with bigger chocolate notes, cocoa, dark fruit, big spices and light toffee.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can pours a reddish brown color with tan head. Aroma of spices and herbs with some malt mixed in. Strong strong flavor. Bitterness. Good flavor but almost too much going on with the amount of flavors. Decent canned beer for the holidays.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. can. Pours a clear dark reddish brown color with a large creamy beige head. The aroma is big on spices (cinnamon, holiday mix), dried fruits like raisins, and malty sweetness. There is also a slight metallic note at times. The flavor has quite a bit going on, but it doesn’t all work together for me. There is roasted dark malts, holiday spices, caramel sweetness, tart citrus, and a hint of metal. The finish adds a nutty component. Medium bodied; this could use a bit more body. Overall, I was expecting a little more from this beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Date and nutmeg aroma. Clear brown, effervescent, thick puffy tan head. Briefly sweet raisin flavor which suddenly becomes tart currant and finishes with nutmeg. Nice dimensions, medium body. Solid and unique.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep brown with a thick off white head. Aroma is sickly sweet and a bit sour. Flavor is rather sour and leaves a bad taste on my tongue. There’s some nuttiness to it, but not much and is rather thin in the body. Overall, pretty disappointed in this one compared to others from this brewery.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours brown with tinges of orange and a thin tan head. The aroma has raisins, prunes, and a non descript array of spices. The flavor is pretty full bodied with cinnamon, pepper, hints of raisins and some toasted malt and earthy bitter hops in the finish. A little harsh for me actually. I don’t like these kinds of beers real bitter at the end. I do like the interplay between the spices and the toasted malts though. Overall, not bad.
