Garnet body. Little head. Not much lacing.
Stale hop and doughy malt in the nose. Mild sweet spice, hard to pinpoint. Smells of dark wheat. Candy-like sweetness. I get some cinnamon and maybe roast apples. Not appalling, but not my cup of tea.
Whew! There's the cinnamon, almost powdery in feel. Touch of allspice and a little caraway seed. Flatline flavors. The cinnamon is burping back up.
Medium body with pretty weak carbonation. I hope it's the tap system's fault.
Not a recommended Sam Adams seasonal in my book. It's cloying, one-sided, and difficult to keep drinking. Got this one by mistake after ordering a Boston Lager. Not a fan.
Serving type: on-tap
