3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a brownish red with ruby red highlights when held to the light. Head was smaller, bubbly tan that diminished and left some very slight lacing. Aroma was very fruity, caramel and toffee, sweet maltiness and Belgian sugar. Flavor of more of the fruitiness, Belgian yeast, some nuts, caramel, sweet sugary maltiness and a light lingering spiciness.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
1 pint 9.4 oz. Poured a hazelnut/brownish color with a think white head. Aroma was definately a delicate mix of spices. The taste carried over with the spices and it felt very caramel like in palate texture and it had a nice bite to it. Very nice beer and i would buy it for a special occasion again.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Spiced-nut toffee nose. Beautiful pour of deep red amber; great thick tannish head and wonderful retention and lace. There is an alcoholic spice upfront (of cinammon/ginger/heavy allspice), some peppered caramel malt and yeast in the mid-palate, and some light spice hops to the pull’s end, leaving with an astringent finish. There is a thin, slick mouthfeel to the brew. There does soom to be a large alcohol note to this beer overall (easily could be misidentified due to heavy cinammon/allspice contingency), but overall, a decent offering.
