Red in color with an off white head. Nutmeg, all spice, and dark fruit. Sweet toffee, pine, toast, and banana. Toasted nuts, bread, and some citrus peel hops. Flavor is a little boozy, but good malt sweetness, banana, toffee, floral hops. Plenty of spice notes, particularly nutmeg and all spice. Pretty decent, but a little boozy.

Sampled at the 1st year anniversary. Pours a dark orange color. really fruity and light upfront then some spice really kicks in at the back end. Chipotle? A winter warmer for sure

A nice, spiced up amber ale. The usual stuff: cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar. Base beer is an amber, some notable malt presence. Pours dark amber, with a moderate head. Smells of holiday spice. Mouthfeel is sweetness, malt, and lots of spice.
It’s a nice winter beer, but nothing out of the box, or very interesting.
