Balanced notes of grain, barley malt and toffee with a nutmeg and ginger.

Good malty body with grain and significant nuttiness. Barley, tea leaves and pecans are off set by light ginger and nutmeg. It has a very bitter finish and it knocks it down a bit but overall it's an enjoyable beer.

Good, strong winter beer. Reasonable on the spices. Would buy it again.

A pretty average, run-o-the-mill produced beer.

This beer is a deep amber-red with both brightness and clarity. Its slightly tinted head is one finger tall with good staying power and solid stick in very good volume.
This one features bread crust and isn't extremely hoppy but more than expected with leafy and piney notes. There's some nut underneath with very slight spicing, a bit peppery, quite dry and slightly steely.
The medium body is crisp all the way and pretty smooth with lots of dryness in the middle to end and a lingering finish where that steely note is also evident.
