In what has been a pretty lackluster season for winter seasonals, this beer shines above the rest. Bright, almost luminous, copper. Aroma was warmly spicy. Moderate, clean bodied mouthfeel. Spicing is prominent but not overpowering. Natural cinnamon, a touch woody, with some other cookie-like background spice. ETOH is well integrated - a little warming and perhaps lending some pepper to the cinnamon. Overall very well done.
Serving type: on-tap

This requires an aggressive pour. I got s thin, off white head over a brown body with ruby distinction. No lace noted.
They note cinnamon and molasses on the bottle and they do not lie. Malt, cinnamon and molasses come rolling through on first sniff. Earthy hops back it up.
The malt and spice combination work together to introduce you to a roasty flavor up front. Molasses flavor is in there, and dances with the cinnamon. Very mild earthy hops intermingle with these near the end.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied. The carbonation pricks the tongue ever so much but doesn't scream at you. Goes down rather easily.
