2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A - Pours hazy brown with a 1.5 finger of off-white head. Average retention some lower lacing.
S - Yeasty spice bread, mixed with sugary raisins, dates, and prunes. Heavily brewed cold tea, doughy yeast,
T - Sweet malt laced with pepper, cinnamon, brown sugar, and unknown other spices. Prunes start to rise above the other flavors, hints of orange tea come in with a nutty yeast. Finishes with an herbal hop bitterness.
M - Medium body, soft carbonation.
Not sure what style this fits in. Heavy yeast, some spice bread, and some mild hops make this good for a setting. Not sure I would seek this out though.

pours a dark amber with thin tan head. aroma is very faint. medium body. tastes of toffee, nuts, light coffee and butter (with hints of alcohol). finish is dark malt with some bitterness. I expected more spice in this, but those flavours are almost non-existent. a nice easy-drinking warmer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The appearance is brown with some red hues and a small off white head that leaves some nice lacing. The smell has some dark fruits and a malty aroma. The taste is the same with some caramel in it and slightly bready with some winter spices and nuttiness. The palate medium with a good carbonation. The finish seemed a bit sticky. Overall, a pretty good beer, easy drinking. I would have this again.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a deep copper color with a finger of eggshell foam. Aromas are sweet caramel and seasonal spices; nutmeg, cinnamon. On the palate its pretty sticky with a big malt presence thats a touch buttery and overly sweet. Drinkable but not really worth seeking out.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a deep copper color with a huge beige head that persists forever leaving moderate lacing on the glass. Hints of caramel and bready malt mix with earthy spicy hops make up the aroma. A slight mineral edge rounds out the nose. The flavor is toffee and caramel with bread mineral water and earthy spicy hops providing some bit of balance. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Not a bad beer, I could see myself drinking these.
