I shudder when I see that a beer is lapped in the spice/herb/veg category. However, this is the best of that category that I can remember. the pour is a nice amber, little to no white head. The aroma is malty sweet. This beer is best enjoyed on a cold winter day. the finish is long and lingering. the flavor is malty with the seasonal spices that one would expect- Cinnamon, clove, nutmeg.

Light amber, clear, lasting head. Floral, intense nose. Medium full body, smooth texture, intense flavor, low heat and avg carbonation, long palate. Moderately bitter, sweetish, getting drier towards the end, just enough acidity. Malty, complex, very floral, hoppy, molasses and cinammon not so obvious. Intersting, more than great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle. Poured dark into a large stemmed glass, almost no head to speak of. The flavors didn’t really work for me though it was OK just not really my thing.

Pours a hazy copper color with a thin off white head. Aromas of molasses and malt. Flavors the same with some cinnamon spice flavor. Some malt sweetness. Not to bad. Medium palate. Little to no lacing in the glass.

It's not a bad beer, it's just missing anything notable. For being brewed with molasses, I expected a stronger flavor. The good thing is though, it wasn't awful. I would certainly try other creations from this brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tons of cinnamon and nutmeg. No hiding the winter flavor in this one. Christmas in my mouth. Tough to drink a whole pint

Lots of cinnamon in aroma and taste. No lacing or head. Cinnamon bomb average winter warmer but nothing special one and done.
