Pours a deep amber color with aroma of spice and syrup. Taste is a bit cinnamon spice with a slight bitter aftertaste. A lingering spruce and nutmeg on the palate. Overall a decent seasonal that warms your chest.

Very subtle aroma of burnt sugar and caramel. Cloudy copper/brown appearance with no foam. Very sweet flavors of ginger, cinnamon, brown sugar and burnt caramel. Hops are evident on the finish. Overall, pretty basic beer with some sweet overtones.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice deep chestnut brown with a small off white head which fades to some lacing. Aroma is of toasted sweet malts, caramel, molasses, cinnamon, some pine, and some fruits. Taste is similar with sweet caramel malts, molasses, maple syrup, cinnamon, spruce, and some ripe fruits. Has a medium-full body with a slightly syrupy, but still slightly creamy mouthfeel, and a sweet, ever so slightly bitter finish. Overall, a pretty nice winter warmer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bready, malty aroma coming off a crystal clear medium amber/orange body with a light tan head. Light brown sugar, molasses and cinnamon/ginger flavors hit right away and are followed by a rich brown bread flavor and smooth, full body. There’s a pumpkin-like vegetal component that plays off the sweetness very well. The taste evolves as the beer warms and unlike a lot of beers it’s very good all the way through. Excellent winter warmer.

Nice winter ale that is easy to drink with just the right amount of spice and slightly sweet. Another nice offering from Hangar 24.
