Growler filled a few hours ago. Somehow missed this one last year, and almost missed it this year, but caught it on the last day before it's gone.

Pours a really nice head for growler, creamy and fluffy a little tan colored, hits a finger and then fades at a med pace, but eventually completely disappears and just a touch of lacing, a hazy tangerine colored reddish orange beer.

Nose is duller than I expected at first, really have to nose deep to get aromas from it, but there are some nice aromas and it eventually opens up. A nice golden malty aroma, fairly malty and borderline syrupy but not quite there, a little candi sugar and general icing sugar like aroma, some reddish malts and a little crystal malt like aroma, hints of spices in there I think but can't really pick any specific spices out, hint of booze and esters, a nice Belgian yeast like ester profile. Very light in the background is a hint of vanilla.

Taste starts with more malts again, little syrupy this time, somewhat sweet but not overly, with more candi sugar like and cake icing. A hint of ginger I think, and with the icing is like a nice gingerbread cookie. The mild vanilla is nice, adding to that icing flavor. Malts bring a hint of dough and cookie, bit of reddish malt and candy malt, some nice golden malts as well. it does get a little syrupy as it goes, and booze comes through very lightly warming the tongue, again with a bit of an ester profile. Somehow my brain keeps thinking there is a mild orange zest in there, not sure where it comes from, maybe it's one of the spices, speaking of which hints of other baking spices other than the ginger. Very mild grassy herbal like hop character with hint of bitterness. Finish is drier but still a little sticky sweet, a bit more booze shows through with some esters and more of the gingerbread cookie spices, as well as vanilla orange icing.

Mouth is med bod, a bit fuller though and hint syrupy, mild warming booze and a little light on the carbonation.

Overall pretty nice, a nice warming fall style beer that warms as the weather cools, a bit too cold now, but still nice, I do like the gingerbread cookie flavors and mild vanilla, but I almost want the vanilla to come through more. Sweetness is there too but not too bad which comes through nicely actually. Fairly tasty beer, nothing too special.

Fresh growler, filled on 10/26/13, poured into a Tree House glass.

A - Poured with a creamy, half-inch head that clung nicely to the glass. Has a hazy, dark amber color...reminds me of fresh apple cider.

S - Definitely getting the spices right off the bat. I'm smelling some nutmeg, vanilla, perhaps a touch of cinnamon? Allspice? Getting a slight alcohol presence, though I don't find it overpowering. Smells very similar to a good imperial pumpkin ale.

T - Taste follows the smell. I immediately think imperial pumpkin. I find it quite complex...starts sweet with notes of vanilla, but then melds into a dry, almost gingersnap finish. Noticing a lot of the spice on the back-end, particularly nutmeg and possibly cinnamon. Nice warming finish from the alcohol which makes it welcome on a cool Fall evening.

M - Like many of the Tree House brews this one isn't heavily carbonated. Very smooth, creamy mouthfeel that just lingers wonderfully in my mouth. Awesome!

O - I'm not usually a fan of spiced/pumpkin beers but this one is really nice. Though, it's not a pumpkin beer I can easily relate AAA to one. Either way, this brew is definitely one of the top spiced beers that I've had. This isn't one I have a lot of in one sitting, but a glass on a cold, Fall evening fits the bill perfectly.

750ml THB swing-top bottle filled at the brewery.

First THB glass pours with a 1/2" beige head, over the cloudy cider-hued brew. Head lasts well due to ample bubbling, with slow-falling, coating lace. Aroma is, yup, spices. Allspice and nutmeg to me, your mileage may vary.

Taste starts gingerbread sweet, tart in the middle, with a lightly bitter but definitely alcoholic warming close. Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is nice for the style. I'll be the first to admit, spiced beers are not my milieu, but this one is nice.
