3.67/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: dark amber almost brown in color. Thick lace develops from a nice sized head.

Smell: caramel, fruit sweetness, and nutmeg are the main flavors.

Taste: caramel, ripe fruits, nice spiciness that includes a soft peppery and nutmeg flavor, and a moderate bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Lightly crisp at the start, smoother towards the finish. Spiciness lingers on the tongue for a while.

Overall: a pleasant holiday season beer, but one was enough in the session.

Draught in Philly: CASK! This one pours a clear mahogany color. There was 1 finger of a dense off-white head on it. Served a slightly higher temperature. Lots of caramel, spices and citrus hops to the nose. The taste is also good. Caramel, spices, some citrus, somewhat bitter and dry. Nice!
