Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 12-06-2000

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 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a very pretty golden amber/copper color with a quarter of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Very aromatic, with lots of spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and ginger, mixing well with strong toasted malt aromas. Gingerbread is what comes to mind.

Taste: Very, very good. Gingerbread in a glass! Notes of toasted malt and freshly baked bread, but the predominate flavor is gingerbread! Strong notes of spice, such as ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. Hardly no hops at all, which pleases me.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, with some good carbonation to tickle the taste buds. With and ABV of 5.9%, there is not presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: I really enjoyed this beer, as it has great flavors of gingerbread, spices and malt. Extremely tasty. Recommended.

Mild coffee notes in the nose followed by a nice smooth full bodied brew with a good coffee and cinnamon flavor. Definitely a cold weather ale but very good.
