(1L swing top bottle thanks to ballewblake) Pours a dark chocolate brown with decent head and good lacing. Nose is caramel, sweet corn, and chocolate. Taste is mildly sweet chocolate, finishes with more delicious chocolate, a nice hop balance, creamy and overall very good. A nice surprise.

Bottle. This was a shocker. I loved this dark mahogany beer. Loads of winter spices of cinnamon, clove, pepper, and some of that winter warmer caramel and chocolate notes. Solid beer, i’ve had it twice both were noteworthy. A gingerbread man in a glass. Solid.

Bomber to taster (shared by Tmoney99). Looks good; a mostly transparent amberish orange with off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells sweet and malty with notes of toffee and light spices. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

jredmond (5334) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Draft at Trappeze Pub with Linh, Scarlett and Dad. Pours a light amber body with light lacing. Aroma is full of spice and sweet malt, and nothing else really. Mouthfeel is medium to light, somewhat dull with not a lot of flavor jumping out. Some muted hop character in the back, covered by lots of spice, malt, bread and toast

This spiced ale pours a medium orange color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is caramel, sweet and spicy. A medium bodied ale. The malts are fruity and sweet, with lots of caramel flavors. The hops are earthy and spicy. Very smooth tasting. The spices tend to match and not clash with the malts in this beer. Nice. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Had this last Dec. Pours a light amber clear with a very thin head. Soft caramel malts with herbal and phenolic spices- gingerbread. More ginger root in the flavor with light toffee, sweet caramel malts and some crackery malts- mild bitter finish.

decaturstevo (5015) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 5, 2008
Deep amber with off white gooey lace and head. Spices and sweet malt dominates the nose with just a hint of hops in there as well. Flavor of ginger/vanilla/oak? Really odd pleasant flavor with a hint of furit maybe cherries. Mouthfeel and carbonation are solid. A really good beer that is full but refreshing. It is safe to say that it is a spicy mama.
