12oz bottle of the 2014 release. Poured into an unlabeled snifter 9/18/2014.

A- Clear darker brown-caramel body, one finger white head with moderate retention, drops into a thick collar. A bit of sporadic lacing. [3.75]

S- Spices, pretty much. Pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves. Sweet brown base malt gives a nice bready aroma to things. It also gives a slightly alcoholic, boozy scent to it as well, especially as it warms up. [3.5]

F- Like in the nose, it's pretty much spices. So overall not as interesting. Nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves up front, sweet base malt intersperses in there, giving it sort of a pie crust breadiness. Kind of nice, actually. The alcohol booze is stronger on the palate, especially on the backend which I suppose makes for a sort of a solid digestif. [3.5]
