Hazy mahogany pour with a khaki head. Strong spice aroma, as one might anticipate. Lots of nutmeg, cinnamon, and all spice notes. Sweet caramel, cola, and hints of chocolate and dark fruit. The flavors are pretty strong on the palate, too. Nice nutmeg and all spice, some strong caramel, toasted bread, and hints of chocolate. A fair amount of cola and dark fruits, some mild yeast, and a bit of banana.
