22oz bomber: This one pours a fairly opaque dark brown color. There was a huge tan head on it that lingers awhile and leaves some lacing. The nose is interesting. There are a lot of spices in there. Allspice, cinnamon, faint ginger clove and orange. While they aren’t overpowering on their own, they seem to be keeping any malts and hops hidden. Interesting taste. Pretty fair amount of spices mingling together, along with some chocolate. There is some bitterness coming through, as well as some fruits in the finish. A very interesting brew.
