A - Pours out a somewhat cloudy with an almost orange tint.

S - The added cinnamon and nutmeg are very dominant, particularly the nutmeg. I could not sense any malt or hops.

T - As expected, the added spices overwhelm the malt and hops. The finish is very much nutmeg.

M- A very rich mouth feel, almost creamy.

O - I got this as part of case of "Winter Favorites" but it's not a favorite of mine. I don't mind a little spice in seasonal beers but this was just too much. Even a spiced beer should still taste like beer. If you like a lot of spice, this one is for you; otherwise not so much.

So this was a definite yes for me. Upon opening the bottle you get hit with the scent of the spices. The beer tastes just as described and if I could compare it to something it would be a spic cake with hits of beer. I really enjoined this beer however those who don't like heavily spiced beers I would not recommend this.
