Bottle shared with Andrew and Brendan. Pours a clear amber body with no head, light lacing. Aroma is sweet malts and spice. Mouthfeel is thin and sticky with notes of sweet caramel malts, light spice and sugar. Nothing about this beer really stands out, very plain but not offensive.

Strong cinnamon flavor in this ale. I wish there was a little more going on, but itís pretty one note.

Thick, bitter and slaty, like molasses. But not in a good way. This tastes some old cure-all wonder drug from the old west. Itís pretty darn gross. Bottle from Whole Foods, Miami Beach.

Not that good. The finish had a citrusy bite that really wasnít very pleasant at all.

Other than the nasty aftertaste itís not horrible per se. The flavor is actually somewhat pleasant and fruity.

Beer # 400! Not quite what I expect from a winter / holiday beer. Slightly malty taste up front with a slightly hoppy finish. Nothing really special in the taste, aroma or appearance. Pretty much just an average beer.

NorCal December í07 - Thank goodness I didnít plunk my hard earned money down on this garbage. If you want to show someone what diactyl smells like, give íem this crap. A big buttery popcorn, malty sweet nose. It really is like sticking a slab of butter in your beer and smelling it. Now, Iím not real sensitive to this chemical, but this beer has it in spades. Appearance is a dark amber color, a nice thick head with some decent lacing. Flavors are sweet malts, earthy hops and a touch of oxidation. Ugh. Pass on this one.
