look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a darkened amber brown body with an inch of off-white foam, for relatively short-lived head.

Smell: Toasted ground cinnamon powder with oven-toasted, butter-brushed rolls and maybe a lightly sweet-scented hint of maple or brown sugar.

Taste: Caramel malts, with a well-spiced breadiness as the cinnamon jumps in in a flash. Soundly sweet. Comes together for a flavor reminiscent of that sugar-encrusted, morningtime bread with the cinnamon swirl in the middle. A few stray drops of pancake syrup. Low, light hint of wheat in the background. No apparent hop character or bitterness, allowing the cinnamon to do its thing. Remains malty on the back end, and still with plenty of cinnamon taste, aided a bit by the fairly crisp carbonation. Finishes semi-dry.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. A hair above medium carbonation.

Overall: Surprisingly nice. Has, for me, a pleasant cinnamon bread quality to it and is, for me, probably the best of the Blue Moon series.

THIRD PLACE so far for winter/Christmas beers (out of about 20).

The smell had a nice spice.

The taste was also nice and spicy. It tasted foreign... maybe Indian.

The appearance was great, but it didn't have much in the way of head retention.

The mouthfeel was like a ball bearing slowly sinking into a thick, soft pillow. It blooms nicely.

Got this in the Blue Moon Sampler Pack

Smells great can really smell the caramel and spices

WOW this beer has an overwhelming taste with the cinnamon, and caramel...it is great no bitterness, and very little after taste...

This is a great beer. The only downside is that it is sweet and a little on the heavy side. Not for drinking all nite but a great beer sitting by the fire on a winters nite, or when you just want to have a few delicious beers!
