Bottle, shared from Timmy. Reddish-brown color, with a thin, grey head. Syrupy and be easy nose, with a mild, artificial cherry hint and some nondescript spice. Sticky sweet, with almost no bitterness. Medium to heavy body, with a cloying, sticky, and thick feel. Meh.

Derek881 (1017) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2014
The beer of Thanksgiving 2014. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a hazy dark ruby to brown color with an average-sized foamy white head that had short retention, and modest cling and lacing. Its aroma featured figs and floral scents along with some caramel malt and molasses, and bits of orange, wheat, and spices. The taste had a mildly sour fruity aspect, but also some earthy and grainy bitterness and a lightly sweet dark fruit effect with raisin. It was fairly wet and a bit watery with average carbonation and fairly fluid mouthfeel.

There’s lots of great spice in this beer and it manages its sweet, cookie-like flavor. Tried at the Drink the District President’s Day event in DC in 2014.
