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 +8.5%

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.

Weighting (percentages): 20, 20, 40, 5, 15. Avg: 3.83

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.

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.
