Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a mahogany color with orange highlights. Upon pouring there is a small white head that fades quickly to give a very light film and very little lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is heavy of spice. A huge cinnamon and sugar aroma greets the nose. This is mixed with nutmeg and allspice aromas as well. In the background is a light roasted brown bread smell. Overall it has a nice cinnamon toast aroma.
Taste – The taste starts out with a lightly roasted malt flavor mixed with a caramel sweetness. Quickly the spice flavors of cinnamon and nutmeg come to the tongue. They start out relatively strong and get even stronger as the taste advances. While the spice flavors intensify, so too does the sweet caramel. With the caramel also comes a sweet toffee taste. In the end a pleasant sweet and spiced flavor are left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer are on the average side in terms of creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average as well. The body and carbonation are good for drinkability and accentuation of the spice and sweet flavors but also provides enough thickness and low enough carbonation to allow all the flavors to linger on the tongue.
Overall – This is a pretty nice spiced brew. It is quite drinkable and has a nice blend of sweet and spice. When in the mood for something sweet and cinnamony, this is a good brew to go too as it delivers in the taste and is quite affordable.
