On tap at MBC. Clearish amber body, thick puffy off-white head. Ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg aroma. Flavor started with a touch of cinnamon and, then, BAM! Nutmeg, lots and lots of nutmeg. This lent a chalky, cakey feel to the body that cut any acidity, making this a very smooth sip for a spice beer. Medium-bodied. An interesting take on the concept.
