The clove really came through on this beer. With a wintery aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg, and a flavor of clove and spice, this makes any holiday merry.

On draft at Issac’s. Thanks to Bob Clark.
Amber pour witha dominant cinamon, spice and nutmeg aroma and taste. It has a warming finish, but it was a tad thin.
Overall, not bad.

On tap at Mad Mex. Clear burgundy brown with a thin beige head. Nose is cinnamon, nutmeg and toffee with faint hops. Medium light with a soft tingle. Taste is gingerbread, toffee, hints of cherry and plum. I like the restrained spicing and at 5% easy to have a few.
