3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from a sampler on a biz trip in Auburn Hills. 355ml bottle, 5.8% a/v
Pours a decent copper color, medium off white head. Aroma is apple cider, cinammon, and nutmeg. The taste is similar with a cider bitterness and mild fall spice taste as well, an interesting mix from a beer I was afraid would be awful. The palate is smooth and very "fall". Overall an impressive execution of a scary sounding beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from sampler pack. Aroma is very much on the cinnamon and nutmeg, as is the flavor. Little evidence of the apple. Not a very good spiced ale, the base ale is too light to stand up to the heavy spice.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle->Willi. Amber with medium white head. Honts of apple and cinnamon on the nose, flavor of light caramel and spices. Not well done.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma is not strong, but has notes of apple and cinnamon. Tempting! Pours a nice amber with a fairly thick ivory head. Caramel comes forth in the malty flavor, which has fruity and cinnamon hints. Mouthfeel is smooth, but not viscous; fizz is minimal. OK with pizza, though.

Sampled this at the 2013 OBF in Joplin. More spice than apple. Good spice element, but less fruity than one might expect.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of cinnamon and roast. Taste representative of the aroma. Very light on the flavor. I tried two bottles to see if it was just a single bottle issue. Not a huge fan.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours white-off head, copper body, quite good lacing. Aromas of cinnamon, all-spice, nutmeg and cardamom with some hints of caramel. Taste is quite sweet, cinnamon-caramel dominant.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smells like over-ripe banana, but the taste is more subtle. Has a very, very light spiced apple flavor. Just an okay beer.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Just okay. I liked where they were going with this one, but I think the recipe needs some tweaking.
--- Beer in my belly makes me hoppy.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Definitely an original. Subtle fruity aroma. Good head and slight lacing. Zero bitterness, creamy textures, nice fruit flavors but wish there was more spice.
