Notes/Commercial Description:
When you bring a glass of this dark copper ale to your lips to take your first sip you will notice the aroma of cinnamon. There is no aromatic hop added that might overpower the distinct spice scent. The medium body of this beer is formed from caramel and pale malts. These create enough body to support the spices without making the beer excessively rich. Bittering hops are added to counter the sweetness of the malt and spice. The finish of the beer is a blend of cinnamon and nutmeg. The combination of these two spices results in a balanced, pumpkin-pie flavor.

12/04/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC.

Since it's early December this hits the spot. Spices without the sweet.

Had 2 in a row & with 40 taps in front of me, that quite a feat on the brewers part.

If you pick friends that are interesting but not flashy here's your chance to make a new one. Skol!

Purchase this every Christmas more for nostalgia case.

Appears a muted brown color with a small, light brown head.

Smells of cinnamon sugar, and other malts.

Tastes the same. A bit overpowering sweetness.

Mouthfeel is medium to thick.

Overall its ok.
