22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 8/2016. Pours clear very dark brown color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with goof retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big caramel, toasted dark bread, spicy rye, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, light chocolate/cocoa, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/bready rye malt, light roast/cocoa, and moderate spice notes; with great strength. Taste of big caramel, toasted dark bread, spicy rye, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, light chocolate/cocoa, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/roast bitterness and rye spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toasted dark bread, spicy rye, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, light chocolate/cocoa, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready rye malt, light roast/cocoa, and moderate spice flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance, with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy, and lightly sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.8%. Overall this is a great spiced brown ale style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready rye malt, light roast/cocoa, and moderate spice flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. Very impressive balance with the spice; good prominence but is used with good restraint. A very enjoyable offering.

Draft @ Brew HaHa. A dark cola/porter color with ruby tones around the edges of the glass.Nice aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg. Flavor is toasty and malty at first,the rey does not come acroos as dry as usual,could almost be sweet but is not,very balanced,the spice is well done,you get a little of that mace and nutmeg at the end but not overpowering at all ,very good. Light crisp mouthfeel. . A very fun and interesting brew,if you ever get the chance try it.

This one is nearly black in color, much darker than I had expected it to be. Roasted malts and cinnamon come through in the smell. The flavor is bursting with cinnamon and other spices. Malty taste as well. I cant find anything in this beer thats even remotely similar to chocolate, which is kind of a good thing. Still very flavorful. Mouthfeel is somewhat light is strongly carbonated. Crisp and refreshing. Drinkability is good, I could enjoy several of these.
