Thanks to my brother-in-law Dave for hooking me up with this one! Clear copper pour with one finger head that quickly fades with decent lacing. Unique, spicy nose with lots of cinnamon along with hints of caramel apples and clove. Smells a lot like cinnamon Apple Jacks. The taste follows suit with cinnamon and cloves dominating, along with hints of ginger, apple, and honey. This is what a Christmas beer should taste like in my opinion. Smooth mouthfeel makes this extremely drinkable, even for such a rich beer. One of the best examples of a Christmas beer I've had from an American brewery.
