Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, clove and ginger. Potpourri of spices in the finish, as well as a touch of vanilla. Decent overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12.7oz bottle, shared with danielcoor and friends. Mildly hazy amber orange color. Thin off-white head. Good ropes of lace. Pretty excited for this, considering the high rates. Upfront, though, I’m surprised how much spice there is. Dominated by nutmeg and clove. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of soft lighter carbonation. Moderate bitter taste. Light to moderate sweet, kind of spicy and rough. Some pumpkin to it beneath the spice. Was hoping for more from this.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Brian! Pours a hazy amber orange with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of strong spice with cinnamon and clove backed by sweet grains and a touch of pumpkin. Aroma has a bit of a biscuit and pumpkin but is mainly full of cinnamon, all spice and nutmeg.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle shared by some pals who just moved to town - thanks, Colin and Kristin! Bottled October 2013. Odd time to bottle one of these. Consumed in late August 2014. Pours a hazy burnt orange with some yeast floaters and a finger of resilient khaki head. Aroma of nutmeg, allspice, clove, ginger, vanilla, cinnamon, vegetal pumpkin, and toasted brown sugar. Flavor is the same. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a spicy mouthfeel. Pretty spicy all the way through, not quite as balanced as it could be.
