3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reddish-amber color with an off white head. Aroma is spicy with cinnamon, nutmeg, and citrusy hops. Flavor is heavy on the citrus hop, medium on the caramel malt, and generous with the spices - too generous for me. Not bad, but not one of their better new beers.

Tap, last of the sampler. While I felt it was a decent beer, I didn’t agree with it being a winter warmer (although the 9% alcohol definitely helped). Could’ve used more vanilla and less cinnamon - decent enough, but don’t think I’d get again.

From the tap poured a light brown color with a fair amount of head. Malty flavor, and as the name says the alchol is there to warm you up. Nice lasting finish.
