Pours a cola color with a big, tan head that leaves little bits of lacing.
Smells of spices, brown sugar, and a some herbal notes.
Tastes of a good amount of roasted malts with some spices. Roasted malts lead off with cocoa, brown sugar, and toasted bread. A small amount of dark fruits come in and add a slight sweetness. Spice notes come on the end and add a little clove and cinnamon. Finishes fairly dry.
Mouthfeel is medium-light with an underwhelming amount of carbonation.
Overall, this fits in with the other beers in this series, and isn't anything different from years past.
