look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A-pours a caramel amber color with an off white head with decent retention
S-cinnamon, clove, ginger, brown sugar. basically smells like a big gingerbread cookie
T-The medley of spices continue in the taste followed with some suppressed sweetness, finishing with hop bitterness and lingering spices
M-medium bodied
O-definitely a spice driven winter warmer, and I think a good one if you dig that in the style. Not overly unique but a pleasant beer to enjoy on a wintery day.

really good seasonal Christmas beer.

color was a dark, clear amber.

head was decent, good fit for the style. not abundant at all.

smell was very good. lots of spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, all of it is upfront and smells great.

taste follows the smell. not one spice is overpowering, all seem to blend very well. no real hop profile.

texture was thin and carbonated well.

overall a very enjoyable seasonal beer. smell and taste were lively. i really enjoyed it, and i am not a fan of this style.
