This pours amberish brown, leaving little head. Not cloudy.
Smells good like Christmas spices - I actually pick up cinnamon mostly, but there is beer stuff too like hops and malts lurking.
Taste is nice and rich, malty and spicy - a bit of alcohol comes through too.
mouthfeel is pretty good - but get it while its cooler, as it warms it flattens out.
The finish is clean, and an alcohol swipe cleans the pallet.
This is a very drinkable beverage and I highly recommend it. It isn't too sharply spiced as some, but it still has that holiday flavor. Try it!
