Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a red mahogany colored brew with a two finger off white head. The head fades relatively quickly to leave a moderate level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is not too potent and consists of a cinnamon, nutmeg and clove spice mixed with a roasted malt.
Taste – The taste begins with a roasted malt flavor and a sugar brown sugar taste mixed with a dark cherry and fig flavor. In the middle some spice flavors start coming to the tongue while the brown sugar and roasted malt flavors start to dwindle a bit. While the roasted malt and the sugar flavors dwindle, the end of the flavor sees an increase in the sweet cherry and fig flavors mixed with some and is joined by a light alcohol burn and some more spice of nutmeg , clove, and cinnamon.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the just above average side in terms of creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is just below average. The creamier body is good for enhancing the sweet fruit, boozy and spice flavors of the brew as they can really be fully sensed by the tongue.
Overall –The end of the flavor profile leaves a nice spiced flavor on the tongue which mixes quite well with the fruit flavors of the brew and the warming feel of the alcohol. Overall a warming, but drinkable brew with a good sweeter spiced flavor.
