3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the bottle: Amber with nice barely off white head. Smooth with a balanced blend of hops and malt. Relatively subtle spices are a mishmash but not offensive. Pleasant enough and light enough to have several.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice aroma but not very strong. Very nice cloudy brown body and very thin white suds. Smooth on the palate and a subtle aftertaste. The flavor has a nice winter spice to it.

[Bottle] Pours a deep amber hue with minimal head. Nose is of cinnamon, nutmeg and hints of anise. Taste is heavy on the spices. More cinnamon and some ginger mixes with caramel and bready malts. Lighter dark rum and brown sugar in the finish. Better balance compared to many beers of this style.

Clear mahogany pour with a nice off white head and nice lacing. Strong spice aroma with nuts and toffee in the background. Nutmeg is dominant in the flavor with cinnamon, caramel, and toast in there as well. Medium body.

I thought that this would have rated higher until I actually plugged in the numbers. Pours a bright copper color with a nice tan head. Strong cinnamon aroma with cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar flavors. Could be described as a cider-like ale. A decent substitute to 2X Xmas from southern tier.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is predominantly cinnamon with just a touch of brown sugar and nutmeg. Pours a clear red with a thin off-white head. This is very cinnamon forward, overpowering the nutmeg and the hops. This is just a bit under being a cinnamon bomb, but thatís the only flavor Iím pulling out of it besides a little malt sweetness. Not bad, just a bit heavy handed with cinnamon

Underrated beer and one of my favorite winter beers. Pours a clear amber with light brown head. Has a strong aroma of spices and malts. Taste is strong with a mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, hops, roasted malts, and caramel. A lingering taste of winter spices.
