Poured into an Elysian glass.

A: Poured a dark, burnt wood color with some little yeasties floating around.

S: Loads of caramel and the thing just screams holidays with it's candy-like disposition. Sure the nutmeg and cinnamon were both present, but I got more Payday candy bar than anything. Sexy!

T: Much more cinnamon and less sugar on the taste. The nutmeg pretty much shot up through my nose as I was tasting it. Seriously, the more sips I took, this became quite the spice bomb. Holiday through and through with some traces of Coca-Cola on about the 3-4th sip or so.

M: Some lacing left on the glass, but most of it pretty much dropped back down into the vat below. A good amount of carbonation and to be honest, I wish there was just a tinge more.

O: It is pretty much what it claimed to be: A big, holiday, spice beer. Cheers!
