On tap at Beatniks in Worcester woohoo!

A -- poured into a standard pint glass a clear nutty brown with a nice creamy half a finger head that fades to leave a thin blanket and nice halo.

S - Aromas of Carmel and toffee with good malt sweetness. Light nutmeg and pie like nose.

T - Oooohhh what the hell is this?!?!?! Malt sweetness with alot of nutty richness and spice notes. Very deep nut and great nutmeg notes. Such great pie spice notes. Very sweet dessert like.

M - Mouthfeel is a bit acidic but slightly creamy. Surprisingly drinkable.

O - Overall I was quite impressed by this beer. Really nice spice on this. Really shocked by this beer. Delicious.

Firkin at EBF

Hazy honey nut colored, light fizzy head.

Nose brown sugar, maple syrup, light nutty aroma almost nutmeg like, hint cocoa and light brown malty aroma.

Taste light sweetness, brown ale malt, spices like nutmeg and cinnamon, nutty flavors with hint of toasty, brown sugar, hint chewy malt and light cocoa, bit of caramel. Bitterness from some light spicy floral hops with a touch earthy grassy. Finish is mostly dry light sweetness, more brown malts, light grassy hop bitterness, fairly nutty flavor.

Mouth is med bodied, decent carb for firkin.

Overall pretty good, nice flavors blended well, very drinkable.

This Poured out as a light brown color with a decent lookin head on top. The smell of the beer gave off some spicy earthy notes as well as malt and vanilla in the distance. The taste beer feel short of my expectations a little, the flavors of the vanilla were there which was nice. Other than that there wasn't much in way of nuts. The spices came through in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel was pretty easy going, had some medium carbonation to it. Overall it was a pretty good brew.

L: Light brown, can see right through the glass. Little head that doesn't last too long after being poured
A: Smells sweet. I get brown sugar and honey. There is also a faint smell of cinnamon.
T: Very shocked. With an initial sip there is the flavor profile of any nut brown ale. But then there appears some fall spice notes. Cinnamon, nutmeg, clove. Almost the same spice profile as a mulled cider
M: A little light on mouthfeel. There is no body to the beer, I wish it was a little thicker

Overall a very unique and enjoyable beer. I loved the fall spice flavor. Definitely worth a try.
