A: Pours a nice orange/amber color with a rich foamy cap.
S: Aromatic spices of cinnamon and brown sugar.
T: First sip is exactly what you expected blasts of brown sugar and cinnamon then you get malty caramel and and some very nice light hops.
B: This one's no wimpy beer, top end of med/full body slight lacing down walls of glass.
O: Overall a very good beer they get slightly different after setting for a while, just wanted to check out the aging.

12 ounce bottle, best before March 2014. Oh well, better late than never! Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a hazy golden/amber color with a half inch off-white head that stayed around for a good amount of time. There's a small amount of lacing. The brew smells like nutmeg, cinnamon, clove and some orange and orange peel. It tastes pretty much just like the aroma, but with the addition of some wheat/bready malt. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit coating with moderate carbonation. Not a bad brew, but I wish I would have been able to try this when it was fresher. Hopefully I'll be able to this upcoming winter!
