22oz bomber-thanks to Aracauna for sending me this months ago. ruby red hue with a soaphy off-white head. sweet, lightly floral hop note with nice spices-cinnamon and nutmeg come to mind. some berry notes come out as well as earthy hops, caramel and toasted malt. lots of spice on the flavors along with some toasted malt notes. some resembelence of a ginger bread cookie! body verges on flimsy, but does a good job distributing the flavors around. Finish is heavily spicy and tingles the toungue. not a bad and unique beer.

Brown colored liquid with a bubbly light taupe color. As a group there were many descriptors thrown about when it came to the aroma. Rubber ducks, baby powder, fresh diapers, vanilla pudding, just to name a few and I don’t think any were discounted. There does seem to reside a touch of caramel, but one does seem to have to search for it. Flavors of some anise and spice cookies. Blue moon ice cream as well. An interesting holiday ale. I didn’t mind it, but there are some odd nose and taste things going on.

1/26/14. Bomber bottled 11/13. Poured dark copper with a one finger head that disapated in about 15. Mild spicy nose with hints of malt and hop. Thin mouth with a nice spicy mix. A different spice profile than most winter ales. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Quite a bit of caramel, though light and crisp, and a soft amount of hops. Has a slight spiciness that is reminiscent of cola. All in all, a peculiar beer, but good.
