3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle at Andy’s promotion party. Poured a deep reddish amber with a fizzy off white head. Aroma is over spiced with cinnamon and winter spices dominating. Not quite sweet enough to be a cookie aroma but more like a slice of spiced toast. Medium watery body with fizzy carbonation and a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is the same as the aroma and loaded with cinnamon and spice over toast. Drinkable but can’t see having more than one or two of these.

Smells like Christmas and the first swig was delicious but the spices got old quick. I more substantial ale would hold up to the spice better.

12 oz. bottle. Dark brown with ruby notes and a medium, beige head. Notes of toffee, butterscotch, cinnamon, and cardamon. The flavor is very sweet, savory, and faintly sour. The body is medium, silky, and very smooth. Overall, this is a good, sweet beer, with a nice, spicy warmth.

A very god looking beer, with a dark mahogany body that is clear and covered with a very durable and creamy tan head. The spice mix is quite nice, but nearly overpowers the malt base. A tad too sweet.

Light aroma. Malty with nutty sweetness, caramel, cinnamon and spice. Fading towards the finish. Fairly smooth overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle. Pours dark clear amber with thin head. Aroma was sweet and spices. Taste followed with lots of sweetness, cinnamon and lots of Allspice. Good fall beer if you just want one. Could use an alcohol kick to add some warmth.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
POured a clear chestnut amber with a 1 inch foamy beige head. The head dropped to heavy film fairly quickly. There were lots of carbonation bubbles rising up in the glass. The lack of the head retention reduced the appearance score, the beer was a very nice color though. The was a nicy spicy aroma of cinnamon graham crackers and nutmeg. The beer had nice carbonation and a slightly thicker body. The aroma was carried into the flavor as well with the taste of cinamon crunch cereal along with just a hint of a hops bite on the slightly sweet finish. Probably the best beer in the variety pack.
