3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours copper brown with a small head. The aroma has toasted malt, cinnamon, nutmeg and other dry spices. It has a medium rough body with light carbonation. The flavor starts off with a nice balance of spices from the aroma and toffee/caramel maltiness with a nice bit of toast going on. The finish is nice and toasty with dry spices. Had this in May, so a bit out of season, but it was still enjoyable.

It poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma was of sweet breadiness with some light caramel and earthy notes. The taste was also sweet with a dry and a little bitter finish. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The color is a cloudy brown with a small off-white head, and the aroma blends cinnamon with caramel malts. The taste is mildly sour, a touch sweet, and a touch umami with the smallest amount of spice, and the palate fuses a slick texture, medium body, nearly flat carbonation, and a slightly sour but short finish.

From a Holiday 9-pack my parents picked up at World Market, of all places. We were all shocked I’d only had one of the included brews and hadn’t even heard of three of the breweries, including this one.
This one’s not the best, not the worst. Malty with subtle spices.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is a clear brown with a small white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts and maybe some chocolate if you use your imagination. Flavor is a heavy caramel malt at first then comes a bit of allspice and oily nuts. Here’s a winter beer that could use a bit more spice. A solid winter beer just missing a few things around the edges.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at their RyeDay event. Poured out of a bottle. This poured a mid brown and was pretty much clear. It offered caramel malts and some spice. Light hop notes with a bit of bread. This drank fairly light for the 6.5% ABV.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled on tap at the 2nd annual Urban Chestnut Wolpertinger party in a dimple mug. It poured amber-coloured with some chill haze and weak foam. Some typical amber ale caramelly, malty characteristics. Not sure what they were going for here; couldn’t decide if it was infected or on purpose because the background taste had some really odd aromas and flavours reminiscent of tobacco, oregano, nutmeg, other unidentifiable cooking spices. Perhaps not deeply flawed, but not very tasty.
