Thorpe429 (5007) - , Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2011
Bottle courtesy of Drew around Christmas 2010. Saved for our Christmas in July party. Served in a SAVOR snifter. Pours a very dark copper-bronze color with a short off-white head and some light lacing on the way down. The nose brings some nutmeg and light clove with a touch of cinnamon. The flavor is pretty well-integrated, combining the spices and some bready malt quite well. Light malt and a slight dryness to it. Pretty good winter warmer. Serving type: bottle

Bottle at a party. Pours a deep ruby/brown. Fluffy and sticky offwhite head. Nose is pretty nice. Some decent estery notes, faint cinnamon and a hint of nutmeg. Cocoa and lush malts come through as well. Firm bitterness and hides the alcohol very well. Spice bread notes. Lightly sweet. Pretty straightforward but well made beer. Nice.
