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.

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.

Not good. Review is redundant. Words for nothing.

Spice bomb, very thin, very unimpressive.

Pours a nice copper with a white head. The smell is full of cinnamon and nutmeg. The taste has those spices in the beginning but then mellows into the toasted malt which I thought gave a nice finish to the beer. SImple but effective.
