3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught at the brewery) medium deep amber, lasting tan head. Nose of winter spices, caramel and chocolate malt, brown sugar, very rich nose with perfectly balanced spices. Taste is dry, perfectly spiced, cinnamon, allspice, light ginger that isn’t overdone, perfectly carbonated, rich and smooth. For a 10% ABV, this ranks up there with the best at hiding it. Drinks like a 6.5% beer. Maybe Michael’s best beer yet.
Growler. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is roast coffee and spice. Thin mouth, toasted malt, spice, caramel, light booze finish, good. Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2014
On tap at Brewed. Dark pour with a tan head. Aroma is dirty, spicy, and sweet. Taste is alcohol, burned toast, cocoa, and a little more dry spice. Ginger in the finish. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - NOV 18, 2014
Poured a very nice medium brown. Lots of spices in the nose. In the mouth it is warming, but alcohol well hidden. TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Pours a nice dark brown color with khaki head. Spice, roasted malt, light hop notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. A very good winter warmer. Ferris (15403) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 19, 2014
Draft - Lots of nutmeg and spice. Dark cloudy brown with a thin beige head. Spicy dark and abut grainy. A bit over spiced for my taste.

On tap at FBI smokehouse in Dallas. Pours dark brown. Thin tan head. Slight winter spice aroma. Malty. Flavor is sweet with some spice. Nuttiness also. I don't like the spices. A bit overbearing. Ok though. Cavie (4718) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2014

This was OK. Malty aroma with a little spiciness. It had a soft brown color with a mild white head. It looked to have some weight, which turned out average. The mouthfeel was full with average carbonation. This a mellow beer. Malty and burnt caramel flavors with minor hops. Definitely had an English influence and was just average. The alcohol was hidden well. brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Dark brown color, mild manila-colored head. Doesn't smell like much. Tastes pretty good! Caramely deliciousness and mild spices, just the right amount of dark fruit. Solid. Errl (2442) - Plano, Texas, USA - NOV 3, 2013
