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.

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 didn’t like how all the flavors came together in the finish.

Blueshawk (386) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - OCT 9, 2016
- kastanienbraune Farbe mit guter, schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - herrliche Aromen nach Trockenfrüchten, Bitterschokolade, Rostmalzen, eine Spur Zimt, etwas Muskatnuss, verbunden mit einer leicht rauchigen Note - passende Carbonisierung - der Antrunk zeigt die beschriebenen Aromen in perfekter Ausgewogenheit auf - der erhöhte Alkoholgehalt kommt geschmacklich nie unangenehm zum Vorschein - die süßlichen Noten und der Rauchtouch ergänzen sich - der Abgang wird dann noch durch eine gewisse Holzigkeit – erinnert etwas an Lakritz – verfeinert Fazit: Ausgewogenes Geschmacksfeuerwerk

ciocanelu (1420) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 26, 2016
Deep mahogany color with tan head. Aroma has lots of caramel, raisins, molasses and nutmeg. Taste starts with all kind of spices, like pumpkin pie or pumpkin beers. Finish is more balanced with some toasted malts and earthy bitterness. Medium body with high effervescence. Overall it’s a quite nice spiced ale. The hoppy finish makes it quite drinkable.

Klares rötlich braunes Bier mit einer mittelgroßen beigen Schaumkrone. Geruch würzig, leicht röstmalzig, rotes malz, Früchte. Geschmack süß malzig, schokoladig, Gewürze, Karamell, interessant.

Interesting brew. Definitely something you’d want on a cold night, but a tad too strong for a real session. Would pair amazingly with some chili or a strong beef stew.

ordybill (1340) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear reddish-brown with a small tan head. The aroma is smoky malt. The taste is the smoky malt with spices.

Gachupines (1251) - USA - JAN 30, 2016
Dark brown with a large tan head. Aroma is spicy, with a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg. Flavor is winter spice, malt and a slightly bitter finish. It’s a bit bland though, and the finish comes off as astringent.

Kinda sweet, almost tastes like a pumpkin ale. Pretty light for an American strong too, but decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jabah (394) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2015
Sort of the typical winter warmer/stronger brown ale with spices. Growing on me a bit with each sample. Not overboard on the spice, which I prefer. Also seems a little darker in appearance and feel for the style, which probably explains the maltier flavor. I grabbed on end-of the season clearance for about half-price, so well worth the try.

On draft at the brewery last June during the tour. Dark brown pour. Smoky, some nutmeg. Interesting. Malty sweet finish.
