Spicey beer in aroma and flavor. I'm guessing maybe nutmeg. Sweet taste of honey and acidic taste probably from the orange.

Found this one bottled at Binny’s in St. Charles, Illinois. Hazy copper red pour with a thin white head, profound spiciness in the nose and body, with a bit of citrus and lots of ginger, nutmeg and clove. Sweetness comes on late. This is a phenominal beer.

dark amber-orange hues with a dash of tan head.Nose is very aromatic,seasonal spices like pumpkin pie and spiced apples.Too bad the flavor isn’t quite as good as the aroma.the orange and spices come out but the brew looses itself somewhere.

Bomber. Heavy spice aroma that includes ginger, nutmeg, clove and cinnamon as well as caramel, honey and light orange citrus. Pours caramel colored with a slight red hue and one finger of tan head with good retention and some lace. Starts with a lot caramel sweetness as well as some honey sweet as well. Finishes smooth with all of the aforementioned spices as well as a bit of orange. Not bad, but there seems to be too much going on here and flavors kind of get lost in each other.

Bottle. Nice beer. This brew would be cool to age in rum barrels. Warms my tummy.

Pours a dark amber with a white head and an aroma that is stronly spicey. The flavor has a slight malty sweetness and is predominately spicey with ginger, cinammon, and orange peel.

They definitely weren’t kidding about the spice. Reddish amber pour with a tiny white head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice, maybe a dash of clove. Flavor is malty and spicy, rich with the aforementioned spices ... almost too spicy, in fact. Sweetness up front with a light, bittersweet finish. Good body and mouthfeel. Not a bad little holiday beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle. Aroma of brown sugar and orange peel. Cloudy mahogany, tan head. I taste citrus, cinnamon, brown sugar, nutmeg, pumpkin with a warming alcohol essence. Odd, sort of hybrid feel to it. Flavors tend to get heavy toward the end. Still, an interesting unique beer.

Bottle wk. 3 of Nov. 2011. Pours clear ruby/garnet with a small creamy beige head. Aromas of cinnamon and nutmeg, apples and apple pie spice, and brown sugar. Bitter-ish grass with nutmeg and cinnamon, trending into sweet brown sugar. Average.
