12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a clear red-amber color with a thin head that fades almost immediately. Aroma of caramel, nutty notes and a spicy finish. The taste is caramel, nutmeg and other spices, nutty notes, mild hops. Thin-medium bodied. Decent flavors but could use more finesse.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a growler. Rusty brown color body with a slight haziness, maybe 15-20% opaque, and a small-forming thin off-white head. At first I got a whiff of strawberries in the nose, but it turned more towards a perfumy, floral munich malt smell after a bit, with lingering notes of the strawberries and maybe some juniper and allspice. Light, perfumy and chewy, that’s basically this beer in three words, and maybe the fourth word could be spicy, but it’s pretty tame. Finishes with some grain husk flavors, and again very light general/allspice flavors.

On tap at Fell’s Point (2/13/09): Pours a transparent amber mahogany with a stringy-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet toasty caramel and nutmeg spice. Starts with good fullness and sweet caramel toffee notes well balanced with holiday spices before a clean bittersweet finish. A pretty good spiced beer.

12oz. My bottle is labeled 5.7% ABV. Clear red / brown color, nice cinnamon nutmeg spice taste. Complements the malty toastiness of the dunkel well. Makes for an interesting brew. No head or lace. Soft, smooth carbonation. Clean finish, good spice aftertaste. Little sediment at the bottom. Cool way to do a dunkel.
