A: Pours an inky black with off white/tan soapy head
S: pungent, cinnamon, ginger and dark roasted malts, dark fruit, carob
T: cinnamon and nutmeg up front followed by toasted malty, an allspice like twang, brown sugar/molasses. A little syrupy and coats the tongue and mouth
Mouthfeel: medium bodied almost milky and smooth with just enough carbonation
Overall: not bad for a winter warmer, a good blend of spices (like a great pumpkin ale + a good stout). I’m not usually a fan of these spicy winter beers, but this one makes for a good sipper.
