Greg and Kyle designed this fabulous creation while Matt was on vacation. The complex blend of many dried spices pierces a caramelly dark malt background. The dry maltiness is balanced nicely by bitterness from both the hops and the spices themselves.

Off the tap into a pint glass at the taproom. Opaque brown color with a thick dirty white head that held nicely. Smells like a Christmas spice rack with some wet malt mixed in. A good initial spice: nutmeg and clove mostly; followed by rich malt with a nice bitter foundation throughout. Very impressed by the balance with the spices. Surprisingly clean and refreshing. Maybe not exactly true to style but it worked nicely. Light carbonation. Quite enjoyable. This beer would be perfect for wintertime.

Tap. Dark copper-brown. Rich foam. Chocolate malt and warm spice scent. Nice spice front to back. Like a chocolate spice winter warmer. Nice.

dchmela (3010) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 22, 2011
Tap at the brewery. Pours a nice slightly cloudy brown. Huge dried spice nose (oregeno, rosemary, cinnamon?), lots going on and a little hard to pinpoint. Smooth malty body, toffee, spices and cinnamon in the taste. The spices stay with you through the finish. Spices kind of muddle up in the aroma a bit, but interesting beer.

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 7, 2011
Nutmeg, cloves and allspice on the nose. Faint cinnamon. Deep hue of brown underneath a taupe head. Allspice starts, but has a tannic, barklike bite that lingers. Anise noticeable on the finish. Medium bodied. There may be a good brown in here somewhere, but it’s buried underneath the spices.

BillKismet (3844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2011
Deep mahogany body covered with a thick beige head. Exceptionally fragrant with pumpkin spice that overwhelms the senses with ginger, nutmeg, and allspice. The flavor is, however, a let down. Tannic nutmeg and allspice leaves an unpleasant bitterness on the tongue, leaving a scar of blandness. Not awful, this just does not come together very well.
