3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Eccentric Cafe. Pours a black body with a finger-width, creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is roasty up front before a nice nutmeg, ginger, and cinammon spicing comes in as this warms. A rich chocolate backing with a light caramel. Flavor is similar. Some chocolate and roast up front before a light caramel and spice comes in. Ginger, nutmeg, and cinammon is displayed nicely towards the end as this finishes dry and lightly bitter with a nice chocolate backing. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a cool stout. Roasty and chocolatey with a nice spicing towards the end. Good beer.

Had on tap at Bryant Lake Bowl in Minneapolis. I didn’t even knew who brewed it.. the waitress recommended it. Good body, but not too thick. Picked up some crazy aromas and tastes. Definitely some cloves and vanilla. Like nothing I have ever had... I ordered a second glass which I rarely do with stouts.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Kind of sounds more serious that it tastes or looks. Pours a nice dark brown with a frothy white head. Very tasty with a nutty vanilla. Spices are not overwhelming and I could just give the standard nutmeg and cinnamon answer but not so sure about that as something just tastes a bit different. Full bodied with some carbonation. This is very drinkable it is not a “winter warmer”.

On tap @ the Beer Seller in Indy.
Near black pour with a creamy tan head. Aromas of cinnamon, ginger, and roasted malt. Very unique nose, not sure I’ve smelled a brew like this. Flavors of molasses, brown sugar, roasted malt, and a slight chocolate finish.
