Tried this beer at the company Christmas party. Nice event, sit down dinner and band. The main beer choices were Coors Lite on tap and bottled Budweiser. As soon as they got the Sam Adams tap working, I was on it!!!! Appearance was good. I didn'[t notice a great head but it left some lacing and had a nice coppery/caramel color. Could definitely smell the spices, I'm figuring cinnamon and nutmeg. The flavor was nicely balanced between the spices and malt flavor. Nothing too overpowering. The spices were noticible first and then smooth, rich malt and spice flavor. This beer is heavier and has a stronger mouthfeel than what I am used to (lagers, marzens and Pale Ales). It was very drinkable. I would have enjoyed something else to wash down dinner and then switch to this afterwards and just enjoy the rich flavor for it's own sake. I would drink this again.
Serving type: on-tap
