2016 vintage. 12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours an auburn with nice clarity and has bubbles racing upwards; fluffy light khaki head that falls leaving great retention and nice lacing. The aromas have lots of spices. Cinnamon and ginger lead the way. Caramel malts are there. The flavors basically follow the nose. The spices are slightly overpowering. Strong bitter cinnamon and nutmeg in the finish. It's slightly earthy. Some ginger and caramel is in the mix. Malts do their thing giving this one a touch of sweetness. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is nice. It's on the lighter side of full-bodied with moderate to active carbonation. It's very fluffy and smooth.

This is a solid winter brew. If you like holiday spiced brews, then you should like this one. The cinnamon and nutmeg might be over the top in the flavor department, but it's still enjoyable and fitting for this time of year.

Enjoyed from the 12 oz bottle in a pint glass. This FINE winter warmer pours a hazy mahogany brown with a brilliant tan head of thick foam and GREAT LACING. Nose of sweet caramel malts, bread crust, spiced carrot cake with moderate cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg. Flavors of sweet malts and light cinnamon and nutmeg come through on the front very nicely being balanced out by bready malts. A light spice cake like flavor blends in on the background, mixing with a dash of orange peel and a very light hop barely detectable in the background and warming alcohol that is very well hidden for the first many sips. Improves nicely with warmth. Very substantial and a great example of the equal of the sum of your parts, this is a new favorite to look for in the winter time.

Excellent work Elevator, now PLEASE bottle the Procrastinator!

Cheers!

Maybe the best Holiday beer that I had in 2014. Delish.
