Coffee shops? Naw doing work at Renegade Publik House. Its a cool, snowy, brisk today in Denver, no better way to beat the cold than to enjoy a nice winter warmer at your local brewery.
A&S: night black colored beer. Light tan head was poured at about 2.5 fingers of frothy head and retained in a ring with good lacing cling. Off the bat the smell mostly contained gingerbread aromas with complements of brown sugar and caramel.
T&M: Spices dominate the initial taste of this beer, however they are still pretty subdued and include cinnamon and nutmeg. Surprisingly sweet towards the finish which is pretty clean and semi-dry. Alcohol is extremely well-hidden (would have probably estimated it at 5 or 6%). Smooth but not without being syrupy.
Overall: Well put-together winter warmer. The downside to not having that alcohol presence is that it's not all that warming so I would recommend this beer on a warmer winter day. That said still an excellent beer, would consider buying again.

Dark brown color with 1 finger of light tan head. The smell was almost like clove but was the nutmeg and cinnamon blend with a hint of bitter orange citrus aroma, smelled incredible and powerful. Anticipated a strong spice due to the aroma, but was pleasantly surprised by the heavily roasted malts and brown sugar providing a nice balance to the nutmeg. Good molasses flavor, not much toffee which I anticipated, but coupled well with just the right amount of spice. Thankfully no ginger! Medium in body, this beer is quite drinkable! Just watch out for that 9%!
