look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from the bottle into a medium sized snifter glass.

Deep amber red, nearly mahogany brown with some good clarity. A nice easy two finger light tan head makes and appearance with some thin bubbles. Creamy consistency, some small finger lacing and creamy collar.

Woah this nose is impressive. Literally smells like gingerbread, perfectly. Nutmeg and brown sugar and cookie dough. Not overly sweet either, with classic clove and Christmas like spices. Just incredible.

Palate comes a little less impressive but still manages to deliver. Milky skim mouthfeel in the mid palate, but with some of the watery spices coming through. More tea and nutmeg action and green hop herbality mixing in. Milky finish on the aftertaste, with some cool mint like hop character interestingly. Tannic tea like after taste and herbal aromas to come in nicely, sumac, sage, and black tea air to match.

It's palate flavor is memorable, but a bit not that perfectly showcased. It easily though could pass off as a great Christmas brew interestingly, with a very unique twist.

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.

3.83/5  rDev +8.8%

A: 3.75 - Very dark amber beer with a light but frothy head.
S: 3.5 - Sweet caramel malt mostly. I thought I caught a whiff of spiciness, but I couldn't smell it twice.
T: 4.0 - Like the smell, a strong initial sweetness with some notes of cocoa, followed by some interesting spiciness, though I can't identify it at all--it's an interesting bitter flavor with a little tartness, a tad vegetal. (oh, just looked at bottle and I see it identifies them. I don't get the saigon cinnamon (which is usually super cinnamony) , but the cardamom makes sense, as does the pepper, and the pepper detectable. I'm bumping up my initial flavor because it's a blend that's more than the sum of the parts.)
M: 3.75 - Soft texture, creamy
O: 4.0 - Very interesting beer, though one I'm unlikely to buy again.

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.
