3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to my sister for the growler. Pours a somewhat surprising to me dark brown with a small velvety light brown head. I guess I read Wit and I thought cloudy golden. Aroma is nutmeg and roasted malts. Taste is spicy with nutmeg and toasted malts. Some molasses. Interesting brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
January 2, 2013 - on draught at Indie Alehouse. Bright and refractive clear bright copper with a small fizzy/creamy off-white to beige head. Aroma is spices and ... mostly just spicy, a bit like the old GR Jubilation. Taste is only mildly spicy compared to the aroma, hardly any alcohol - some bitterness from some source ... a little light bodied, airy enough but not all that carbonated, finishes quickly, just leaves a grain and spice aftertaste, a little dry.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep brown pour. The nose is quite spicy and phenolic. A bit of rum and molasses along with some light cocoa and toffee. Dark malt and some light plasticky character. Thereís a little bit of smoke in here as weíll. I donít know if this yeast and these malts play all that well together.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Barhop. Pours a dark opaque black with a bit of chocolate head. Smell is burnt nuts, a bit of chocolate and a bit of licorice. Palate is on the lighter side of medium bodied with slightly lacking carbonation. Taste is slightly sweet at first the gets bitter/sour, and a long roasted aftertaste. Not sure I like this, itís akin to drinking roasted chestnuts.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very dark amber, thin tan head. Really intriguing aromas of nutmeg, cinnamon, dark fruit, yeast, grass, herbal and floral. Medium body, a little oily. Smooth, a little sweet and dry. Balanced, not overpowering at all for the elements in the aroma. Very nice.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A dark brown "wit" with a thin mocha head. In aroma, fruity ester, roasted malt, bananas, dark plums, OK. In mouth, a roasted malt with banana, dark fruits, not bad. On tap at brewpub, Feb. 2 2012.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub, Jan. 2. Pours a slightly hazy deep amber with a small lasting creamy beige head. Some lacing on the glass. Aroma of spices (Ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and more), grain and wheat -- smells Christmasey. Flavour of wheat, grain and those aforementioned spices, though not as much as in the aroma, but thatís probably a good thing as it would be petty intense. Average to medium bodied. A really pleasant beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012-01-02. Dark brown body with a modest beige head. 3++ Dryish spice aroma, mild malt, oh wow - tons more nutmeg when I come back to it later. 7+ Flavour is similar, a bit dry overall, malty with a mild spicey touch that lingers, modestly bitter. 7+ Average plus bodied palate. 3+ Didnít love this in the middle of a few different beers, might come back to it another time if I have the chance.
