Bomber into a snifter.
A: Orangish red with a big beige head.
S: Allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar. Carrot cake! Frosting and vanilla. Love the aroma.
T: Flavor tastes of carrot cake but it's really intense. Very spicy, lots of cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg. Reminds me a bit of a pumpkin beer with all the spices.
M: Medium body with medium carbonation.
Overall. Great nose but one ounce is enough to taste. A novelty that's worth trying.

Received a bottle from volunteering at WBC this year. When I opened it up there was an amazing cinnamon smell coming up. I am not fan of carrot cake, but I enjoyed the beer. Taste was a little sweet for me but I just had a 2 oz pour or so as it was shared among 6 people. Would be hard to drink a full 22 oz bottle. Overall a unique beer and one that might have new beer drinkers around winter time convert to drinking better beer.

Served on tap in a cervoise at the Great Taste of the Midwest.
Appearance: This pours a reddish brown color with a small creamy light tan head. The retention is not very good, and it leaves just a few spots of lace on the glass.
Aroma: This smells like a delicious piece of most carrot cake. The aroma is absolutely dead on. There is not much else to really say. Vanilla, cinnamon, a toffee sweet malt aroma, ginger, and nutmeg. I think that covers it. Wow.
Flavor: The flavor is nice, but does not quite live up to the aroma. Some toffee sweetness goes with the malt flavor, and some vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and all spice are there as well. The carrot is actually the one thing that sticks out in a negative way; it is kind of over-exaggerated in a sense. The finish remains fairly sweet.
Mouthfeel: This has a fairly smooth feel with a light graininess to it. The carbonation is well-integrated and on the softer, creamy side. Slightly sticky sweet.
Overall: This was enjoyable, and Short's really pushes the limit with some of their beers. The flavor of this beer could not possibly live up to the aroma, but it was still quite good.
Serving type: on-tap
