3fourths (9146) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2012 Slightly murky dark brown with a large dark tan head. Big cinnamon and nutmeg nose, thick and creamy, some rye, cardamom, and an alcohol bite. Big allspice/nutmeg/ginger flavors. Almost cream-like body, with a crisp scotch bite at the end.

Nov., 2004: Murky and deep amber; thin, but nice and frothy off-white head with nice lace. Rich malts with a moderate sweetness (toast, brown sugar, burnt toffee). Big burst of cinnamon throughout and a lesser note of nutmeg. Finish is kind of drying (from the cinnamon and hops). Some nuts and a moderate amount of bitterness in the aftertaste. Nice winter ale.

Ernest (7344) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 9, 2004
Draught. Body is medium orange brown. Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, caramel), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of nutmeg/allspice/cinnamon, and orange peel. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Oddly, not much bitterness, spice or otherwise, comes out in the finish, making this rather too sweet to drink much of. Smells nice though.

Draft - If holiday spices are your thing, then you would like this beer. Smells great, tastes a little less intense than the smell, but not much. As far as spiced ales go, this one is pretty good. I would not want more than one though.

Nice allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg nose, but they didn't carry thru to well into the flavor, different, but not exciting
