Another great seasonal. Hard to come by when released best served from tap with cinnamon along the brim of your glass!

Spice ales are not normally my beer of choice but this was a gift to taste. Well crafted and the hint of cinnamon is really complement to the hopes and malts used. Very sweet after taste this beer would go well with a desert

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours ruddy amber, clear. No head, just a bit of oily lace. Aroma is ginger and honey. I don’t get the cinnamon. Medium body, kind of _chewy_. Reminds me of a spiced ham.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Oily amber with not much head. Faint aroma of citrus peel and bourbon. Slightly sweet with hints of ginger and cinnamon. Pleasant, round, full mouthfeel. Would probably be rated a lot higher if I didn’t have a headcold blocking most of my smell and taste.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep golden color with a thin, white head. Not much there on the nose, but the taste is sweet with a fairly solid malt backbone. Caramel and cinnamon are primary with hints of other spices. None are overwhelming, which I like. Solid for the style.
