On tap at Flossmoor. Pours a hazy reddish copper with a medium beige head. Citrusy hop nose with cinnamon and sweet malt. Grassy hop flavor giving way to spicy cinnamon and a bit of malt. Very interesting concept and they pull it off with this nicely balanced brew.

Tap at Flossmoor. Jet black pour. Big lacing. Thin body (surprising). Huge cinnamon nose, like red-hots. It works - remarkable beer.

#1 of the 12 beers of Christmas: Fairly true to the base beer (Black Magic IPA) but with the fairly robust addition of cinnamon, which was very, very prominent in the aroma and only slightly less so in the flavor. As Cornfield says...cinnamon candy, big time, but I was reminded of Red Hot Dollars, which I never realyy liked at all. OK.

Draft poured on tap at the brewpub (Flossmoor, IL). Day 1, Black Magic as it’s base. Pours a very dark brownish black opaque pour, a nice offwhite tannish head that dies to a small film, laces pretty well, darker. Aromas are a potent blast of cinnamon, a touch of roasty malts and piney floral hops. Very nice, surprisingly potent on the cinnamon. Initial gives a decent blast up front, but settles back, letting the base beer do some decent work. Medium bodied, decent body, and firm bitterness sticks to the palate. Piney, florals, a decent roastiness. Cinnamon sticks decent amounts to the palate, giving a refreshing blast of spice and a touch of those hard red candies. This beer actually works very well on the whole. Kudos to Day 1.

On tap at the brewpub - Day 1 of the 12 Beers of Christmas: This brew surprized me. I didn’t think the combinaton of cinnamon and PNW hops would work, but it held my interest for a few rounds. It had a deep brown pour, almost black, with a tan head. The aroma and flavor reminded me of red hot cinnamon candies, spicy with a bitter burn. The dark caramel malt flavor kept the whole thing in balance and it spiced up the tongue and mouth while cooling and quenching at the same time. Another unusual winner from Mr. Shimkos.
