3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12.7oz bottle, shared with danielcoor and friends. Mildly hazy amber orange color. Thin off-white head. Good ropes of lace. Pretty excited for this, considering the high rates. Upfront, though, I’m surprised how much spice there is. Dominated by nutmeg and clove. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of soft lighter carbonation. Moderate bitter taste. Light to moderate sweet, kind of spicy and rough. Some pumpkin to it beneath the spice. Was hoping for more from this.

375ml bottle pours a clear, burnt orange amber with some thin, creamy, white head. Nose has a ton of spices, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, a little cardamom, malt, some caramel, root veg, squash and sweet potato, a little toasted marshmellow. Flavor is like a Coke and a Chai mixed together, some sweetness, caramel, cola, tons of spice, pepper, nutmeg, ginger. Spicy finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Bottle (375ml)] Pours a clear deep orange-copper with an average size diminishing frothy white head. No lacing. Aroma of pumpkin, spices and grain along with bready malt and some light fruit. Malty flavour with pumpkin and spices -- simple but nice. Alcohol is totally hidden. Medium bodied. The pumpkin and spices are there but not over the top like some Pumpkin beers, and sometimes that’s what you want.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from a 12.7 oz corked brown bottle this beer poured a murky brown color with a medium sized foamy orange-tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was vegetal and malty with sour caramel and vague spices. The flavor was tangy and vegetal with sour caramel and vague spices. Medium length finish. Moderately full bodied. Meh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Deep amber, a little fiery, thin frothy tannish head, little lacing.   Spicy nose, definite cinnamon and nutmeg, along with some ginger and clove.   Plethora of spices on the tongue.   Clove and ginger are a bit stronger here.   Nutmeg and Cinnamon are a bit overshadowed, but come out a bit more after the clove and ginger die down.   This one is pretty tasty, not overdone, but certainly is a spiced kick.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Back of the throat just keeps that clove hanging around.   You want a plethora of spices, this is the beer for you!   Pretty tasty and bright!
