Bottle from Super Saver, Somerville, NJ. Deep brown hazy pour with huge spicy aroma. The taste was dense and very spicy, perhaps too spicy. As it warmed, it got a little muddled and hard to finish. In the mold of Weyerbacher Decadence.

"Not what i expected, this should be a spiced beer. Poured a amber color with not much head or lacing. Aroma was of cinnamon and nutmeg. Flavor was where this one was off, not that it was bad but to much spices. If it were a spiced beer maybe higher rates. "

Poured a clear copper color. Aroma was heavy on the spice. Make that too heavy. So much so that the aroma seemed dry. Like inhaling in a dry sauna without the heat. Flavor way too spiced. Cinnamon, gum, clove. Dry finish.

Sampled at the Friday night (Pre-Atlanta Cask Ale tasting) RB gathering at Twains 2006. 22 oz bottle. Bubble gum aroma with vanilla syrup. Various overdone spices. Bubble gum flavor with spices added. God! Make it stop!

22oz. bomber. Clear, dark copper color with a small beige head. Sweet, spicy aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves. Sweet malty flavor with tons of sweet baking spices and an alcoholic finish. Spices remind me of a pumpkin beer, but with a much higher alcohol kick. A bit over the top for me.

SpringsLicker (3318) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 30, 2006
Pours with a fleeting white head that slips into a dark orange/amber body. Spicy-sweet fruity aroma that reminds me of candy "Circus Peanuts". A bit too much spice in the flavor.

aracauna (3352) - Georgia, USA - JAN 29, 2006
This intensely spice beer pours a hazy mahogany. The aroma is a huge buttload of nutmeg. Very spicy. Spices hide every other quality of the beer except a very tiny bit of the warm, chewy malt.

zathrus13 (1749) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - JAN 28, 2006
Pours orange/amber/copper, with a tan head. Aromas are sweet malt, and loads of rich spices. Flavors are spices, malt, and some yeast. Flavora are very rich, but the body is a little too light. Very intriguing.
