3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Coffee Grounds in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden copper amber colored brew with a thick and rocky off-white head that really sticks around with excellent lacing. Aroma of almond marzipan, a hint of cinnamon, allspice and caramel malt. Taste is full bodied, soft carbonation with more holiday spice flavors such as cinnamon, yeast, a touch of bread dough and toffee. Finish is semi-sweet, quite smooth and a mild lingering yeast and spice aftertaste.

12 ounce bottle. Pours reddish brown with a decent beige head. Aroma of spice, caramel, and malt. Taste is spice, caramel malt, and some fruit. Not my favorite style. Well made of course, but not what I enjoy.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had at a BOSS meeting, thanks to Goetz. Pours an amber color with one finger of off white head. Aroma is cardamon and cinnamon. Flavor follows and is heavy on the spices. It is hard for me to rate a beer like this. I absolutely hate the style - beer should never have these spices in it. But I can see how if this is the style, this one works. Nevertheless, I’m the one drinking and I hate this. So there goes.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy copper color with a big fluffy ecru head that sustains well and leaves good lacing. Aroma of pears and light fruit along with cinnamon, ginger and slight bubble gum. Taste has some light fruit sweetness at first then the ginger and cinnamon spiciness takes over, followed by some slight biscuit malt. Finishes dry with hints of lingering spices. Mouthfeel is semi slick with a medium body and high carbonation. A well put together spiced beer but not one of of favorite styles. The most I have enjoyed a spiced beer however.

Pours a clear amber with a two finger head that lingers, but no lacing. Malt forward aroma, hint of booziness, nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon and maybe some clove. Moderately bitter, but also modestly sweet. Full bodied with soft/moderate carbonation. Long spicy and bit of boozy finish.
