3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured fiery reddish-orange with a densely-packed beige head. The aroma picked up nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon over sweet caramel and a touch of molasses.. a bit too focused on the spicage, but I enjoyed them all. The flavor found bright cinnamon and nutmeg, and some sour notes over molasses.. a bit sour on the finish too.. this wasn’t that well balanced. Light-medium bodied with only an OK feel/flow.. meh.

12oz bottle. Pours a dark amber color with small tan head. Aroma is caramel malt with hints of spices. Spices are more present in the flavor with prominent notes of cinnamon and nutmeg with a sweet caramel malt backbone. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and slightly sweet finish. Pretty good.

nice color, very wide range of tastes- cinnamon and spices, edge of citrus fruit. I’m really no good at writing all this stuff- I’m tipsy and just enjoy beer- I’m not really snobby. D:

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Deep amber, reddish, moderate foamy light beige head, spotty lacing. Bright fragrant citrusy nose, candle like as well. Best I can say is very sweetened Ruby Red Grapefruit with a spicy fragrant candle. Sweet citrusy rind up front, with a soft spicy backside. Not as sharp or bright as one would think given its spicy and bright grapefruit on the nose. The spices feel like very faint nutmeg and cinnamon, dull, not too sweet or vibrant. Fragrant candle remains. Tastes a little artificial. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Little bit of a mealy finish, lingering Ruby Red Grapefruit. Not bad, but a little bit of an odd duck with the Grapefruit and candle fragrance.
