The pour leaves a dark copper colored body with a rather thin, bubbly head ( 3.5). Big nutmeg and allspice aroma; smells like a big holiday cookier (3.75). An interesting spicy/bitter flavor that starts out rather weak yet builds to a satisfying finish; a little watery and harsh (3.2). Medium bodied; smooth mouthfeel (3.25).

Okay overall yet rather disjointed and too brash, flavor-wise. The initial smell is most appealing yet fades way too quickly, even at room temperature. And the finish leaves a sort of metallic twang in the mouth that ultimately distracts from any remaining good points. Not bad but hardly a must-have...
