OKAY, words cannot describe how bad this beer is. It has a beautiful color just like the 2X IPA, but it smells like a bad candle. And the taste, what on earth were they thinking? First off to take a beer as hoppy and citrisy as their 2X IPA and mix it with cinnamon seems bad enough, but it's like they put half a container of it in every beer. It has a painful taste, like chugging a bottle of cinnamon, I truly have no idea how anyone enjoys this beer and at the craft beer store I work at it is EASILY the most hated beer among the staff not just of the seasonals but of any beers. Never would expect this from Southern Tier.

Arrives a clear, bright, medium reddish brown with a small, creamy, light tan head. Retention is short. Inconsequential lacing.
Smell is menthol, like in cough drops, with some indeterminate fruit or malt note. The clove is so heavy here that it overpowers any other notes. I could find no fig, orange peel, hops or malt here.
Taste is exactly the same as the smell, sadly. Clove and spice is just a two-fisted punch to the palate that obliterates all other flavors. None of the listed flavors could be found with that much spice.
Medium body, sharp effervescence up front fades super fast. Medicinal/clove note just lasts forever. I like clove but not by the bucketload. Slightly warming. Nothing really to recommend it. Sorry.
This would be excellent to baste a ham. Mix it up with some brown sugar and reduce it then glaze that ham, man.

Serving type: on-tap
