Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass.
A: Pours a deep mahogany color with a tall, tan head of foam. Looks a little sudsy in the glass. Not unattractive but nothing really to note.
S: Very one-dimensional nose with an assertive scent of burnt gingerbread cookies. Upon further inspection, the brew has a slight waft of funky infection in the background (for a can?). Not exactly enticing...
T: Hmm, not much great to say about this one. Very aggressive notes of cinnamon and nutmeg dominate the forefront of the taste profile. The flavor awkwardly stumbles into a rather charred melange of overly roasted malts with a displeasing bitter, metallic tinge lingering in the finish. Unbalanced to say the least.
M: If this beer had one redeeming quality, it would be the smoother mouthfeel. However, hope is dashed out when you get to the astringent aftertaste coupled with the poorly masked alcohol content. I say "poorly masked" because the assertive spices offer some cover but by no means blend enough with the other flavors of the beer to make for a pleasurable experience.
O: I hate to say it but avoid this beer at all costs. I've enjoyed offerings from 21st Amendment but I cannot fathom who passed putting this one out. Well, now I need to find something to do with the other 5 of the pack...
