From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Receive as a trade from a non BA member. Sampled on July 24, 2014.

It pours a medium amber-copper color with a long lasting off-white head and great clarity. It looms like it should and nothing more.

It is the aroma that really jumps out at me with a wide variety of pungent herbs such as Ginger and Rosemary. Some toasted malts and mild earth.

Medium body.

The taste has many of the same herbal characteristics with the added touch of nutmeg, which I did not get in the aroma. Thin hop finish. Overall, not a bad beer.

Got this a couple months ago. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a snifter.

a - Pours a murky, mahogany brown color with one to two inches of light tan head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of spices, honey, dark fruits, wheat, bready malts, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

t - Tastes of spices , pepper, coriander, bready malts, wheat, fruits, dough , gingerbread, and light cinnamon. Too much spice for me, a step down from the nose for me.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a decent nose but way too much spice going on in the taste for me. Not my favorite holiday beer.
