Bottle shared at Paul’s Dec 3rd tasting. Pours a brown body. Aroma is toasted caramel malts and a touch of cinnamon. Mouthfeel is thin, with notes of watered down chocolate, cinnamon, and caramel malts. Ehhhh.

750mL bottle purchased at Nugget Market in Woodland, CA. Corked and caged. No pop whatsoever when this was opened. The aroma is heavy on spices. White pepper, allspice, nutmeg are detected. Lightly floral with some roasted and burnt malts behind the spices. Transparent, watery-appearing cola colored body with no head or carbonation. Starts spicy with some peppery notes, before this becomes slightly sweet in the middle, before this becomes an awkward salty flavor towards the end. Some of the pepper flavor makes an appearance, but there is no heat associated with it. This is a very strange strange brew. I am not sure what to think of it. Definitely needs some carbonation and some body, and the saltiness in the middle is weird...almost mouth puckering. I don’t see myself purchasing this again.

Bottle… Clear, dark ruby ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Smells like ketchup – spicy and sweet. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. The flavor is spicy, herbal and moderately sweet. Finishes spicy, light sweet and mildly acidic.
