Was excited to try this given the time of year and the fact I've never tried it before...keyword "was".
A: Pours a dark brown and ruby with a big bubbly deep almond colored head that disappears quickly and completely. No lacing.
S: Smell is an unusual dry earthy brown sugar aroma, hint of maple, alcohol. It's not very inviting. More sweet and dry/earthy than anything.
T&M: Sweet, sugary, not unlike some of Bruery's other offerings (BT anyone?). Lots of brown sugar, molasses, maybe a hint of maple syrup. Could hazard a guess there's nutmeg or clove in here, or both. Not sure, this seems to be a grab bag of spices. Too much that none of them stand out, and lend to the overall taste experience. Wouldn't have been able to guess there's yams in here either. This is mainly a very sweet carbonated syrup beverage. Speaking of carbonation, it's a little on the low side. Could be a bit less watery and a bit more bubbly.
O: I don't know. Bruery has some OK beers and some great beers but I haven't tried anything yet that has blown my mind. And more often than not, it's just a miss for me. This beer is not great. I'd say this is more an experiment and in early development stages than a complete final product. Maybe with some work they could make it good, but until then I will not be buying this again.
EDIT: This ended up being a drain pour :(
