Molasses brown color and tan head. Notes of mouth-watering malt, sweet molasses, raisin. Very intriguing taste. Blackened malt and sweetness

Poured from a bottle into a tulip

A. Dark brown with a 2 finger khaki head.

S. Dark fruits fill the nose. Prune, raisin, fig and dark cherry.

T. The taste is very pruney. Dark malt. Finish tastes a little clove. About it.

M. Medium bodied. Kinda bubbly. Finishes clean.

O. A different beer. Fitting for the holidays. Would go good with some almond crescents.

I really love the flavors of this beer, Nutmeg, ginger, maybe some cinnamon!
