3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught at the brewery) medium deep amber, lasting tan head. Nose of winter spices, caramel and chocolate malt, brown sugar, very rich nose with perfectly balanced spices. Taste is dry, perfectly spiced, cinnamon, allspice, light ginger that isn’t overdone, perfectly carbonated, rich and smooth. For a 10% ABV, this ranks up there with the best at hiding it. Drinks like a 6.5% beer. Maybe Michael’s best beer yet.

On tap at FBI smokehouse in Dallas. Pours dark brown. Thin tan head. Slight winter spice aroma. Malty. Flavor is sweet with some spice. Nuttiness also. I don't like the spices. A bit overbearing. Ok though.

This was OK. Malty aroma with a little spiciness. It had a soft brown color with a mild white head. It looked to have some weight, which turned out average. The mouthfeel was full with average carbonation. This a mellow beer. Malty and burnt caramel flavors with minor hops. Definitely had an English influence and was just average. The alcohol was hidden well.

Dark brown color, mild manila-colored head. Doesn't smell like much. Tastes pretty good! Caramely deliciousness and mild spices, just the right amount of dark fruit. Solid.
