Bottle, 12oz. It’s an almost clear one, amber in color and topped by a dense, finger-thick light beige head leaving lacings. The aroma is sure spiced, nutmeg and clove notes, as well some caramel maltyness in the back. There’s some sweetness and bitterness going on in the flavor, but the spices win. Dried fruits, caramel and a touch of pine cones as well. Full to medium body, soft carbonation. Feels quite sweet, but dries up towards the end, which is also mostly spiced. Not sure... I think it’s a fine brew, but if the spices were toned down a bit, it would be quite drinkable as well. 130829

Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear copper with a slight foamy off-white head. Aroma is something from my childhood. Can’t come up with a name for it. Med body. Flavor is a sharp spice which drains away to reveal something like pie spice. Finishes fairly dry, and there is that strong spice. Actually I think I prefer this new approach to the standard pie spice. It’s a pretty tasty brew.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark reddish pour with thin slightly off white head, aroma has notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, some slight hops, caramel, toffee, hints of earth, spice notes in there as well, smells pretty well balanced. Taste is a mix of sweet caramel, toffee, lots of cinnamon, ginger, finishing with some hints of earth, slight bitter grassy hops, finishing fairly dry and spicy.

Ughsmash (7323) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
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.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark caramel color with a medium white head. A light sweet toasty nose. The flavor is light spices, caramel, toast, some fruity hops. Light almost soapy spices. Light overall. Pretty nice though.

Seems like a rather robust Carmel malt and hoppy amber/red ale base, with cinnamon and nutmeg present but not overpowering. Really like the balance here. Well done."
