Poured from bottle into Sam Adams sensory glass
Appearance - Brownish with a bit of red hue. A off color white head formed upon pouring, which gave way quickly with no lacing.
Smell - Sweet smells of caramel and brown sugar up front. These are followed by nutmeg and possibly the slightest bit of cinnamon.
Taste - Not as sweet as would have expected. Much more burnt tasting with a bit of spiciness of nutmeg. There are slight sweet notes of brown sugar later on, but they pale in what would be expected from the smell.
Mouthfeel - Rather average. A little watery with a fair amount of carbonation.
Overall - Nothing to special. If looking for a winter warmer this is not the brew.
Serving type: bottle
