3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at the brewpub, rating from notes. Pours a rich dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, other holiday spiced, and chocolate. Some mild roast, mild chocolate notes. Flavor is spice, nutmeg and cinnamon with a chocolate base. Thatís about it. Thatís the problem with these heavily spiced beers. The spice dominates. Medium bodied, chalky texture, finishes with lots of nutmeg.

spiced porter. big nutmeg and spice element..seems like added vanilla as well. it seems like founders can pretty much do anything to a porter, and make it interesting and tasty. this is a bit too spice-driven for myself, but am thankful that it still comes across as a mostly roasted, chocolate and nut driven porter too. interesting, and much better than previous yrs spiced porters..
