3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle from STLWill - thanks, Will, for letting me rob your cellar of this gem! Pours a somewhat hazy amber with a small off-white head that lasts as a film and ring. Nice spicy aroma, with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, brown sugar, caramel, and toast. The flavor is more of the same, but all melded together with some tea and earth. Light-bodied, with a watery mouthfeel and low to moderate carbonation. Better than I anticipated.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an average amber brown with a nose of fresh pumpkin pie. Plain and simple. Flavor is a nice onset of nutmeg that gives way to a light pumpkin and cinammon. Notes of buttery brown sugar linger in the finish. Watery mouthfeel. A good beer; I’ll buy this again next year.

Pours coppery brown with a small, creamy head. Lots of cinnamon and nutmeg but not overly sweet. Needs more beer flavor coming through but still pretty tasty.

Pours a mahogany body with an off white head with mild retention and thin lacing. Aromatically very spicy with cinnamon and nutmeg, a hint of allspice. A bit incense like in terms of pure spiciness. Modest cinnamon zest and a nice drying spicy finish.
