COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our heady Spiced Ale summons escape from the ordinary. Lavish English and Wisconsin Malts slow brewed caramel goodness into this beefy bronze Strong Ale registering 20 degrees Plato O.G. Aged on Oak in the Open Top Cellar so that Cassia Cinnamon, Ginger and Allspice could be carefully hand stirred into the velvety Toffee notes of this aromatic Spiced Ale. 100% Naturally Bottle fermented to warm the chill from your soul.

adnielsen (9460) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle @ Steve’s Super Bowl party. Thanks Armin! Pours a hazy deep orange appearance with a fizzy off white head. A lot of ginger in the spicy noise. Some caramel apple as well. Tangy and tart flavor. Slight celery / veggie note that may just be coming from the ginger. Cinnamon and vanilla too. Light bitterness. My last favorite NG beer in ages.

Clear brown, off white head. This reminds me of a pumpkin beer minus the pumpkin. Spices, toffee, caramel. Tasty.

12 ounce bottle courtesy of AWISLguy and shared at a tasting, 10/6/14. Pours a clear amber with a large foamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of heavy spice, including cardamom, ginger, clove and some banana notes. The taste is banana bread, ginger, clove. Medium bodied, mild lingering spice.

> Spiced carrot cake, heavy cinnamon malty amber ale

[ Bottle ][ 12oz ][ TheEpeeist ][ Bonus ][ Tired Hands Stemware ][ 7.12.14 ]
>> Pours clear red amber, medium off-white head. Spotty lace. Awesome nose of carrot cake, cinnamon frosting, rum soaked biscotti, nutmeg. Taste is spiced cake, dusty, malty, sweet tea. A tad tannic and too dusty for me. Not bad.

>!< dusty, tea

Dogbrick (8658) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy dark amber color with a medium thin off-white head that evaporates steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, spices and oak. Medium-bodied with flavors of gingerbread, caramel malt and oak. The finish is sweet with a cinnamon and ginger aftertaste. Above average overall.

shrubber85 (7947) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle. Nutmeg, cinnamon ginger and toffee malt aroma - nutmeg is most dominate spice. Amber with large off-white head. Strong spicy toffee malt flavor - no one spice dominates in the flavor though. Not bad - just like the typical pumpkin beer without the pumpkin.

Seems based on the old winter warmer but miles better. Vanilla and spices elevate this brew.

Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Bottled. Poured clear lighter orange with a tall, dense, well-retained khaki head. The aroma picked up lots of cinnamon, ginger, and a kiss of licorice over softer bread and biscuity notes.. some warmth, and plenty of residual spices on the back of the nose. The flavor found more of the spices than anything else.. cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger over toffee and soft bready notes.. finished spicy and a bit hot. Medium-bodied with full, creamy carbonation.. more focused on the spicage than I was looking for, but it was aiight.

12 oz bottle: pours a clear deep amber golden with a clingy-lacing froth of off-white head. Has a sweet cinnamon and allspice nose with some toasty caramel malts and noble hops. Body starts with good fullness and effervescent carbonation revealing a clean biscuity malty sweetness and good cinnamon spice balance with a touch of light fruity complexity in the finish. Has good balance of sweetness, bitterness and spices.
