This is a beer I heard a lot about before trying it, so I know it is popular. Pours nice dark amber, displays ample head bestowing good retention qualities. Nose is full of spice, cinnamon nutmeg, ect. Big combo of malt and cinnamon and other spices at first taste, but it follows all the way down. Medium bodies, decent mouthfeel, but the spice is cloying. I can drink a half a pint of this, but it will never be a session beer for me.

Sadly, i was kinda sorta sick when i had this, so i had a difficult time picking out any distinct flavors. I did detect a good amount of spiciness in it. Nice amberish color with no head. Served way too cold at Fridays.

Bottled. Good beer. Cinnamon hit very hard up front but mellowed towards the end. Nothing wrong with this one.

Rather enjoyed this one. Thin, but sticky off-white head with gooid lacing. Dark copper colored - slightly hazy. Aroma is of Christmasy spices - most likely nutmeg. Hearty, stick-to-your ribs kind of flavor - reminds me a bit of pumpkin pie. Good, thick mouthfeel, clings to your mouth. One of the better spice beers I have had. Thnaks to Aurelius for bring this back from the NE.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 15, 2004
Dark amber beer with a short white head. Aromas of sweet caramel malts mix with a back drop of cinnamon and nutmeg aromas. The overall effect is rich, with strong caramel and gingerbread flavors. Very little hop flavor to speak of. It finishes with sweet malty flavors up front, and ends with a very long cinnamon and nutmeg finish.

Deep copper in color with a quickly disappearing head. Smells like pumpkin pie. Flavored like a pumpkin beer rather that a spice beer. Not too bad at all. Not strong with alcohol well masked.

thin head. nice apple and nutmeg aroma. I think i like the aroma of a spice beer more than the flavor. A bit watery on the palate. Not bad

Copper color out of the bottle with a sharp sweet cinnamon, nutmeg spicyness. Thin head dissappeared to nothing too quickly. Body is a little thin. Very spicy with lots of cinnamon and brown sugar. The finish is a little metalic. Solid spiced beer but nothing great.

Th first thing that got me about this beer was the aroma..very strong apple cinammon spice like a fresh baked apple crisp or some hot apple cider fresh from the oven. Coloring was a clear light orange/yellow with a serious amount of head that went down to almost nothing. The taste was very light in comparision to the aroma, with hints of spice and cinammon again and a slight warmth. Definitely a beer to sip by a fire during snowstorm

Nice amber color with nice tan head. Clove, allspice, malt, ginger along with a pumpkin pie taste. Spicy.
