mvp (259) - Harper Woods, Michigan, USA - DEC 24, 2016
Poured on tumbler. Terrible looking dark copper color with a white head that disappears quickly. Aroma of nutmeg. It reminds me of pumpkin pie. Light palate with an average taste.

Bebum (932) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 16, 2016
Light amber, clear, lasting head. Floral, intense nose. Medium full body, smooth texture, intense flavor, low heat and avg carbonation, long palate. Moderately bitter, sweetish, getting drier towards the end, just enough acidity. Malty, complex, very floral, hoppy, molasses and cinammon not so obvious. Intersting, more than great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy copper color with a thin off white head. Aromas of molasses and malt. Flavors the same with some cinnamon spice flavor. Some malt sweetness. Not to bad. Medium palate. Little to no lacing in the glass.

It's not a bad beer, it's just missing anything notable. For being brewed with molasses, I expected a stronger flavor. The good thing is though, it wasn't awful. I would certainly try other creations from this brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
