3.5/5 rDev -11.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Appearance is a deep copper with a small, light tan head. smell is of cinnamon, honey, sweet dark malts, and cloves. not strong enough, nothing impressive.
Taste is big on the cinammon up front, dissolving into a rather bland blend of ginger and honey in the middle and a slightly burnt alcoholic sweetness in the finish and aftertaste. A decent winter warmer, but nothing too impressive. Perhaps this one is a little past its prime.
Full-bodied and decently carbonated. Drinkability is okay, but i wouldn't want another.
