3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Maple Shade. My notes read "classic winter spices in a smooth lightly carbonated body. The head retention on this was amazing since it came with 5 other 4 oz samples and I drank this one dead last and the head was still sitting there smiling at me. Served with a rim of cinnamon and brown sugar so the aroma was all spice and no hops. Flavor was winter spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar) and to a lesser extent roasted malts". Nice beer but next time I will have to sample one in an unrimmed glass but I must admit it was a nice touch and worked.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On Tap-Newark-Dark colored w/a moderate tan head. Spiced aromas. Malty flavor of roasted nuts, caramel, molasses, cinnamon, brown sugar, & allspice. Had a good bit of carbonation to it. This was a little different, but it was enjoyable. Long, spiced finish, it did warm you up.
