This one should be among one of the best BIG Daddy Ales. Pours a very dark amber color with a very frothy thick head over the ale.

You receive a nice hint of the malts in your nose with a sugar and spice accent

Very nice sweet smooth taste up front with the spice flavoring hitting you at the end. I thought this ale might have been to sweet at first but after further review its perfectly balanced.

The mouth feel is very nice medium to full with a very little hit of dryness at the end.

Over all this is one of the more perfectly balanced ales, the balance of malts and sweetness keeps you coming back for more. The brewing was very well done you could not ask for anything better. This is the perfect ale for the holiday season. I would recommend this to everyone.

I like Avery offerings.
A: Dark..Red to purple highlights.
S: Earthy? Definitely something kind of funky. But in a good way.
T&M: It took me a couple sixers to really appreciate this one. Malty sweet, but enough of everything to go around.
D: A fantastic sipper. Even if it gets to room teperature.
