The unexpected rim of brown sugar on my glass certainly affected the aroma and taste of this one. This was very sweet, with lots of spice like cinnamon and nutmeg. Overall, the flavor wasnít horrible and fit right with the name. The body was thin and watery.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reddish colour. Very spicy, majoring on cinnamon and nutmeg. Fortunately, there was no brown sugar on the rim here, which is just as well as it was sweet enough already. Not unpleasant, but the spice overwhelmed any other characteristics that the beer may have possessed and it came over as a bit unintegrated and unbalanced. On tap at John Harvardís, Washington DC.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
On tap at the Cambridge loc 2004. Dark amber, beige color, with some bright oranges throughout and a small off-white head. Aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg. . .and thatís about it. Flavor of. . .cinnamon and nutmeg. I knew this one wasnt very good when my girlfriend liked it alot, as she likes beer that dosent taste like beer and this one sure dosent. Any flavor is masked by the huge amount of spice in this, there is a bit of malt sweetness, ever so slight on the finish. Watery, thin.
