black with deep reddish-brown highlights. cinnamon head that faded to a bubbly ring fairly quickly.
nose of nutmeg, cinnamon, bread, syrup, dark chocolate
taste - yum! not overly sweet, lots of nice bread and dark malt flavor along with the obvious spicing. spicing consists of nutmeg first then cinnamon with some vanilla in there also i think.
light, fine carbonation fitting of style. medium-bodied with slight texture left on tongue. mildly bitter finish that trails off smoothly.
this beer caught me off guard. i was expecting a sugary mess of exaggerated spices. quite the opposite - nice quality malt backbone and balanced, delicate flavors that remind me of Moravian Sugar cookies more than egg nog. i like this one so much i requested another bottle from my trading partner in that area.
