On tap at Copper Kettle. Dark brown with a short head. Smells like spices, nothing to get excited about but not offensive either. The taste is absolutely horrendous. Cherry Mentholatum on the front makes it taste like a Hall’s cough drop, gross. This was the first copper kettle beer I did not like, tough to swallow.

On tap at Copper Kettle poured a clear reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of clove, cinnamon, carmel, coffee and toasted malt. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, cinnamon, clove and light coffee with a smooth lingering spiced finish.

Tap @ brewery. Cloudy brown appearance with a small tan head with large bubbles. Spicy aroma- ginger, vanilla, allspice- with notes of toasted caramel malts. Creamy, dark chocolate, vanilla, caramel/toffee malty centric flavor with the spices subdued but a nice addition. Nice job!

Cloudy brown with a thin white head. Sweet holiday aroma of cinnamon, fresh gingerbread, and mulled spices. Just a delightful Christmasy nose. Delightful flavor of nutmeg, gingerbread, light chocolate, toasted toffee, some nuttiness, and delightful candy-like sweetness. The body is a little light, but the flavor is spot on. A lovely winter ale.

Tap at CK - hey, a winter ale that isn’t a booze bomb - what a novel concept - cloudy dark brown - thin ring of white lace - like chai in beer form - smells and tastes of cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg - there may even be a hint of white pepper in there, as there is a slight peppery bite on the tail end - there is some moderately sweet, roasty, nutty malt underneath to balance and the spices are not overdone, resulting in a nuanced, sessionable winter brew with plenty of character - a lot of vanilla as it warms - another nice one from Copper Kettle.
