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.

2.64/5  rDev -16.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours light brown/red with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of winter spices, a tad of cinnamon. Tastes of cinnamon in my mouth with carbonation. Beer is not overly drinkable for its light body but overpowering spices. Overall a below average beer.

Serving type: bottle
