12oz bottle. Pours a dark brown, nearly black color with a small creamy khaki colored head that has good retention. Aroma has a big dose of clove and nutmeg, with hints of cinnamon, allspice, gingerbread, floral sweetness, fruitcake, burnt dark sugar and fig. Taste has big flavors of clove, cinnamon, gingerbread cookie, nutmeg, allspice. Tastes like Christmas in a glass. The finish lingers charred malt, candied orange and sweet figs. Medium body with low carbonation that leads to a slightly foamy feel and a smooth finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Savory aroma of spices (cinnamon & ginger), Worcestershire sauce, and dark fruits. Flavor of dark fruits and spices. More generic than in the aroma. Bitterness is quite restrained but that doesn’t mean the sweetness gets out of hand. Well balanced throughout.

Black, big brown head. Smells like pumpkin bread, plus cinnamon, orange, clove and coffee. Its not as rich as the smells would indicate, in fact it’s surprisingly drinkable. Coffee, cinnamon and some other indeterminate spices. Orange peel and some yeasty notes, too.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ Stone O’Side. Dark brown pour with a nicely sized tan head. Aroma is a traffic jam of spices with clove (although lighter than prior vertical epics) and a sharp, herbal bitterness. Taste a ton of spices including cinamon, pepper, licorice, anise), tobacco, minimal sweetness, and a lingering bitterness. Yeast character in the taste is minimal. Clean, relatively dry mouthfeel. Aggressive and over the top at the moment I think this beer will drink better in a few years.
