COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our interpretation of a fall seasonal beer. This beer will curl your toes and put goosebumps on your arms. A fine collection of traditional fall spices make this a great addition to the holiday season...it will make all humbugs cheery. The beer is dark in color...a bit darker than brown ale. There is a combination of Perle and Willamette hops to provide a contrasting intensity with the fall spices.

On tap at BottleMixx (Raleigh). Pours dark with lots of head (keg was close to kicking). Spices couple with hops on the aroma. Spices dominate the taste. Good fall seasonal ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. A touch of coffee with minimal spice. Solid entry but I wouldn't call it a strong ale at 7%. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle from The Beer Store in Wilson, NC. Rudy amber hue with mostly lasting frothy caramel head. Zero visibility with excellent lacing. Light spice, malt and some chocolate aroma. Light bitter chocolate on the initial taste with a medium malt finish. Light and refreshing on the palate. I really enjoyed this one.

DiarmaidBHK (4056) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Bottle from Greenville beer exchange. Pours dark brown with a Thin khaki Head. Has some nice holiday spices on the nose. The taste has big spice notes on the tongue and itís also fairly hop forward. Unfortunately it doesnít blend together well. It tastes a bit like leather. Not a pleasant experience.

Cybercat (4738) - Georgia, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Malty aroma has smoky, yeasty, hoppy and subtle spicy notes. It pours a lovely clear chestnut with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled light tan head. Flavor has firm notes of cloves, woody hops and roast malt plus hints of caramel and cinnamon. Smooth texture has a decent amount of fizz, and leaves a hoppy, woody finish.

On tap at the brewery. Had some nice spices in it, but they didnít overpower the hops. Definitely a warming beer that I love during the winter.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a moderate off white head. Nose is a little spicy, but not all that strong. Taste is rather strong and malty with some caramel notes and some roasting. Too strong for my taste.

beerme31 (623) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Draft. Dark brown, thin tan head. Aroma of caramel, spices, dark fruit. Medium sweet flavor. Medium-full body, texture on the thick side, mild bitter spice finish. Tasted ok upfront but didnít like how all the flavors came together in the finish.

Drake (11469) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Bomber from the brewery. Pours a clear reddish brown color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of caramel malts, smoke, bubblegum and spice. The taste is toasted malts, nuts, a smoky almost woody note, spruce, spices. Medium bodied. Didnít expect this much smokiness, but its still a pretty nice beer.
