Pours a light brown color with a short tight white head that left a wall of lacing as it settled.

The aroma is sweet. Brown bread with brown sugar and caramel. Cinnamon spice gives the brew some needed depth.

The taste is of a toasted pumpernickel malt with caramel and brown sugar. Some tea flavors from the malt. Noticeable but not overly strong cinnamon note. The allspice seems to provide some earthiness.

The feel is light to moderate with fizzy carbonation. Sweet on the palate, almost sticky. Quite dry on the palate, a bit astringent.

A decent winter ale. Not a huge fan of the base beer but I do like the amount of spice used.

On growler at Beer City, North Babylon NY

A - Dark copper pour with a cloudy look. Eggshell foam settles fast. Some lacing in rings on the glass.

S - Scents of clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger spice. Malt scent is sweet with molasses notes.

T - Brown sugar sweet flavor with a plenty of holiday spice. The spicy feel is a bit dominant as the beer warmed.

M - Like many of the holiday spiced beers, this became a bit much and onbe glass was done. Overall the feel was nice, medium bodied, and slight carbonation. If the spicy feel were balanced a bit better this would be perfect.

O - Good local holiday beer. Would try again, but not a go to for the style.
