UPDATED: NOV 22, 2017 First holiday offering of 2017 for me, medium to full taste, light hop middle taste, malt aftertaste. Not bad for Breckinridge/AB.

12oz bottle 9/22/17 (Courtesy of Friend)-42° in Tulip-Pours an amberish brown with a small ring for a head. Aroma of roasted malt, sweetness, and caramel. Taste of the same with nothing on the back end. this light to medium bodied brew is not bad but was expecting more.

January/2016 Not worth the calories I had it a couple of times since both after drinking a few other beers. And found it pretty good actually. Bumped it up from a 2.5 to 3.0 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

No spice aroma. Reminds me of a Belgian Dubell. Sweet with no noticeable spice. Sweet finish.

chinchill (5318) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 5, 2017
On tap in Atlanta. Smooth, medium body with medium carbonation. mahogany colored body with a very good off-white head. Spicy aroma that correctly suggests that the the flavor may be a bit over spiced. Slightly bitter although lightly sweet up front. Overall: ok but still disappointing.

Deep Amber brown with little beige head: aroma is malt and vanilla notes; flava is malty grainy with subtle spice and brown sugar notes; feels medium to thick silky with soda like fizz; finishes tangy grassy grain

Pours a medium copper color with a thin tan head. Some caramel and citrus flavor. The finish was kind of dry. Not too bad.

on tap @ Hebron Brewhaus / Hebron KY --- Clear light-medium amber color, off-white head that drops to a thin cover, bands of lace. Taste is malt with loads of spice on the swallow that adds nice light chocolate in the finish. Comes close to a beer version of spiced tea.
