2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Deep red, almost mahogany pour with decent head and lacing. Pleasant aroma of ripe fruit and spice. Malty sweet flavor with just a hint of spice. A bit of diacetyl present. Good body with a clean finish. A decent beer; needs more flavor/spice. I hope the diacetyl was an anomaly.

Brown with medium off-white head. Caramel, maple syrup, Christmas cake, milk chocolate,woody, liquorice. Medium sweet with light bitter finish. Medium bodied, but with a slight thin feel. Has some strange cardboard bitterness that I don't like much, but otherwise pretty good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle shared with multiple others at brew club. Pours a thin ivory head, with fair retention, and minimal lacing, over a slightly hazy dark amber (SRM 15) body....nose is nutmeg, hints of allspice from the adjuncts, light cereal, with slight toffee/caramel, brown sugar tones, from the malts and fermentation, minimal hops....taste is sweet dried fruits with plum raisin, fig tones hints of brown sugar, minimal hops tones, minimal bitterness.....mouth feel medium body, light carbonation, with a soft minimally acid finish. This is a light spiced ale needing an increase in the malt backbone to improve body and depth of flavors. The spice were dealt with a light hand and were perhaps a bit too subtle. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

Fles gedeeld met rikstar. Amberkleurig bier weinig schuim. Aroma is niet heel sterk aanwezig. Smaak is wat kruidig, moeilijk een plekje te geven. Afdronk is redelijk.

Appearance: Light brown with an allmost white medium sized head. Decent retention and maginal lacing.
Aroma:caramel, malts and honey
Taste: candy sweetness, The cinamon and fruit + the sweet caramel give this a strange candy sweetnes, which will be make or break.
Average carbonation medium body and a sticky texture.
Technically a more the good brew but not my brew.

12oz into a pint can glass, pours a murky gross looking brown with a thin small white head the rims the glass. Aroma is roasty orange spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, and dried plum. Taste is rich amber waves coupled with the orange spice and nutmeg sensations, followed by rich and bready malt blast which covers ground in the overall stance of this brew. Dry aftertaste with orange apricot. A full bodied witer brew with lots of seasonal spice to it. Not bad
