look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Reddish brown color, almost flat very little carbonation. Head disappeared on contact. Very sweet and malty to the nose with hints of orange zest and cinnamon. This beer is spiced with cinamon and ginger, orange peels come up. Besides that it is very malty and it is heavy. Mouthfeel is medium to thick zero bubble feel. Minimal hop drying and presence. Surpisingly drinkable though. Solid seasonal beer.
