FCB spiced up a scrumptious brown ale with ginger,coriander and lavender to create this toasty treat. It’s how we celebrate the final weeks of winter here in Colorado, with a big malty brew full of warming spice.

Had on draft at redlight redlight. This pours a very deep amber brown. It smells great. Lots of grain and a hint of honey. The finish is surprisingly sweet for such a dark beer.

sebletitje (9032) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2010
tap @ OTH. pours dark brown, tan head. Aroma of pleasant spices, ginger and mild chocolate and herbal notes. Flavors, nice wonderful warming spices, sweet floral note of lavender, ginger spices with a mild chocolate-caramel finish. The FCB beers always seem light on the palate and these off shoots pack a nice punch to them, more complex than their regular line-up. Finish keeps a nice chocolate/cocoa and spicy touch that is softened by the lavender that adds for a mild silky floral finish.

Draft at Redlight Redlight. Spicy aromas, clove and cinnamon. Tastes of subtle sweet malts but, most passed over by the spiciness which include both the clove and cinnamon as well as strong coriander.

Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Draft at redlight redlight. Pours a deep amber. Nice big complex nose. Lots of spices, hints of a good cheese pizza, notes of honey wheat bread, lots of grain, and hints of caramel. the flavor is fairly sweet, surprisingly mild, but very tasty. Very smooth, easy drinking beer. I like it a lot more than I thought I would.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2010
draft @ redlight redlight. Vanilla and nutmeg on the nose with hints of cinnamon, and maybe traces of milk chocolate. Pours a rich amber with a thick off white head. Smooth and nutty with nutmeg, allspice, notes of cinnamon and maybe coriander. Its definitely a spiced beer, but its really hard to pin point what the spices are, very nice, not overly done.
