3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance- semi clear/opaque (dark but let a little light through). Dark Amber, mahogany brown. Big bubbly mocha head that lasted a good bit. Nice lacing.
Smell- clean, malty, spices and clove. Dark chocolate.
Taste- bitter, toasted malt, spicy (and sweet).
Mouthfeel- light body (surprisingly). Smooth and creamy. Very little carbonation.
Overall- so so/ok. After seeing and smelling, the mouthfeel and taste disappointed. Was expecting more. Not a bad beer, but nothing noteworthy.

12 oz can. Aroma: malty, with biscuit, strong fall spices, and NyQuil. Taste/Palate: sweet throughout; starts creamy, and finishes crisp, astringent, and bitter. Pretty great for a winter warmer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 12oz can. Aroma is somewhat of a cheap candle or potpourri. Flavor is a bit woody and piney. Definitely has a winter sweet spice profile to it. Finishes very astringent.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Malty, molasses like aroma. Appearance is brown with a slight brown with an off white head with poor retention. Flavor is full of caramel with strong notes of a blended spices including notes of nutmeg. Beer has a high amount of hop bitterness which dries out the malt. Mouthfeel is medium full with a spice astringency on the end. Overall, the spice blend is muddled. The combination of high spicing, high hop bitterness & large amounts of caramel all clash together.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can into pint glass, deep rusty brown color with tan head. Aroma of allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel malt sweetness and some roast. Taste is heavy on the spice notes adding notes of toast, faint vanilla, molasses, booze and earthy/grassy hop bitterness. Medium-heavy body, moderate carbonation, sticky with spicey roast finish. It’s a winter spice bomb for sure balanced with sticky sweetness.
