2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
tap.dark copper pour. reminded me a bit of anchor osa, spiced nose, a bit too much lavender like taste to it. biscuity and chalky. does not sit well with me. seemed a bit hollow. it was hard for me to put words to this. because it is not a bad beer, i just do not like it. my cousin loved it though.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon; an overall eggnog feeling. Appearance is dark red/brown with tan head. Flavor matches the nose, but with an emphasis on nutmeg. Palate is bubbly. Another solid BBC brew, but not top notch.

750ml btl numbered 1/77 brewmaster. Pours a rusty copper with an almost non-existent head. Super spiced aroma of ginger, cinnamon and other seasonal spices. Medium bodied mouthfeel not much carbonation. Nice caramel malt base, lots of that same xmas spice, raisins. A hint of alcohol, pleasantly warming. I wish it had a bit more body and a little more carbonation, but an enjoyed seasonal on a snowy night.
