4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, pours clear orange/yellow with a frothy 2 finger head, some yeast floaties, and good lacing. Aromas are pleasant. Light hops mix with spice and invite the tongue for a taste. The mouth is slightly creamy as you draw some seet malt flavors into the mouth, moderate carbonation hits, and light bitterness is present for a second until some nutmeg/cinnamon and correander/yeast combinations round the beer out. Very pleasant, the spice is a nice change of pace. Gets better as it warms, more complex malt and alcohol notes are present. I hope to get this again someday.
