Enjoyed In a polkas glass

A: pours a dark amber color with a 2 finger very ligh tarnish color that lingers for a long time and leaves nice lacing.

S: very spicy! Allspice- nutmeg, Cloves, and a very strong cinnamon aroma.

T: again similar taste to the smell, mostly cinnamon. Has a slight wheaty finish.

M: full body, good carbonation.

Overall, a bit too much spice but has good flavors. Can pair well with pork and possibly chicken, easy to drink but wouldn't enjoy more than one in a sitting.

Poured from their 12oz bottle from their Winter Sampler...

Appearance - Pours about 2 fingers of tan head, color of the beer is a translucent red copper amber. Very little lacing.

Smell - Cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, this seriously smells like baking cinammon rolls!

Taste - Oh my goodness, I'm drinking a cinammon roll, and this isn't necessarily a bad thing. Starts cinnamon and sugar, wheat bread and sweet malts take up the center, and your literally left with the flavors of having just finished a bite of a cinnamon roll or sweetened cinnamon toast.

Mouthfeel - Lite to medium mouthfeel, lots of carb provide alot of tingle and crispness, extremely drinkable.

Overall - I'm pleasantly surprised by the flavors here. They are definitely not bold or over the top, but they work for me. If you like cinnamon rolls or sweetened cinnamon toast, you will really enjoy this beer.

I bought a 12pk Winter variety pack of this from Woodman's in Janesville, WI in Winter 2011.

Pours medium brown color with a smooth fluffy head. The scents of toasted cinnamon cover up most of the other aromas but it still smells delicious. The taste isn't quite as good as the smell but still pretty good with cinnamon, sugar, and toasted malts. This is a great any day beer for me during the winter as it is not too heavy or too light and it's so refreshing.

Dark amber in color and a very dark clear appearance. Smell has a slight carmel/cinnamon smell with a good balance of hops. Taste, this is well balanced. The spices are there but they do not take over the beer; the way it should be. Mouthfeel is ok, it does tend to stick on the tongue. Overall this is a well brewed beer that will go nicely on a winter day with some good sticky buns. Has that winter ale characteristic.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass from the 12 oz bottle.

A: the beer is a pretty solid red color, clear with visible carbonation throughout. Head was offwhite to light tan and did not last very long.

S: Smells surprisingly sweet and fruity. Spiced apples and a definite wheat character.

T: That's weird. This tastes like eating a gingerbread cookie or a cinnamon bun. Not much else. Just a gigantic liquid cookie. The cinnamon and spice really overpower this one, and there's no hint at all of the fruit note that was in the smell. The taste lingers around a while after.

M: Somewhat thin, but sticky.

Overall, strangely alright. I couldn't drink a bunch of these but I'm not hating this one right here.
