Poured into a pint glass a dark murky brown. Good thick white head and good lacing. Looks like they've figured out their bottling problems because this one has plenty of carbonation. I tried a bottle of Gigantophis that was flat and apparently their first attempt at bottling. So good job on this one guys!!!

The scent is amazing. I have a terrible nose, but I can find everything in the scent of this one. Cinnamon and Cloves are very prevalent.

The taste . . . whoa. Everything that made the scent strong is over kill on the taste. There's just so much spice that you can't taste any off what makes a beer a beer.

The mouth-feel isn't all that great because of the large amount of cinnamon, it dry's out the tongue. But carbonation is much improved.

Overall, bottling quality is much improved. But this beer shows they're trying too hard.

My advice to this new brewery: Let's just start out making great beers of the top styles. Then experiment with stuff like this beer later.

Aroma- gingerbread. Slight head.

Color- clear amber.

Taste- an interesting spiced amber. Reminds us of a spiced winter warmer with a gingerbread cookie. Starts spicy with cloves dominating the beginning with mellowing cinnamon sweetness like cinnamon toast with a faint hoppiness in the finish. Label says it's brewed with saigon cinnamon, ginger, clove, cardamom, and black pepper. 39 IBUs

Tested on 1/25/14. Poured from 650 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass).

From a bomber

A- Murky amber with a white head. It looks a lot like apple cider

S- Love this! Lots of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and allspice.

T- I really like this. It is very spicey, with notes of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. It would make a nice holiday beer. The beer gets a tad bitter at the end.

M- Decent, good carbonation. Slightly astringent.

O- Awesome! I don't find too many spiced beers that are pale; usually can only find spiced stouts. This tastes great, reminds me of Pumpkinator's little brother. I would definitely get this again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bomber into a Samuel Smith pint glass with a moderate hand. This bad boy survived the flight back from Dallas in the suitcase, despite TSA's best efforts to disrupt my well-engineered anti-shock system (read: wrapped in underwear). No date. First sampling from this brewer... Ever! [Confetti]

A: Pleasant chestnut amber with good clarity. 1-2 fingers of off-white head with good retention. Scant lacing.

S: The spices are definitely there. Clove. Is that an actual clove lodged in my nostril? Traces of cardamom. Green pepper corns. Quite herbal. Somewhat medicinal. Eucalyptus. Light bread notes as I get towards the bottom of the glass.

T: Surprising bitterness initially that carries throughout. An herbal dryness is fully established by mid-way. Very dry finish. A slight malt presence arises near the end. The spices are prominent (mostly clove, cinnamon, cardamom) and accentuate the bitterness. The lack of sweetness is distinct.

M: Moderate, rather smooth, carbonation. Body is fuller than the average amber and suits the beer well.

O: I like spices. I like spiced beers. Well, some of them. This one is pretty good. It is certainly amber in color, but the similarity between your garden-variety amber and this brew stops there. This is a dry, herbal concoction. I enjoyed the first pint, but I'd recommend sharing large bottle formats.

Prost!

3.76/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Dark brown shows some murky soft light when held to my monitor. Manages to hold on to a halo of brown foam but only tiny spots of lace.

Smell: Heavy pumpkin pie spices, so heavy they scare me a bit as they overwhelm all but a hint of malt sweetness. Some clove comes through.

Taste: Thankfully the spices don't completely overwhelm the brown ale base that gives enough sweetness to cut the heavy handed spices. The base is a little thin for the load it carries but does the job.

Mouthfeel: Little flat, big watery body, thin profile with a slick oily finish.

Overall: I'd like to see the spices dialed back, or the base volume raised to allow some aging potential to let the spices settle down. But as it stands it's a pungent, tasty brown ale.
