12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, clear, deep, dark, mahogany color with a quarter of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Not much in the aroma department, either that or I’m stuffed up. I do get some very faint notes of malt and brown sugar, but not much else.

Taste: Much more in the flavor department however. Strong notes of malt and freshly baked bread. Black pepper, coriander, brown sugar-like sweetness and subtle hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and smooth, as there’s not much in the way of carbonation, what-so-ever. With an ABV of 7.0%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a pretty tasty beer. Good balance between malt and sweet and hoppy bitterness, but at the same time, its’ nothing special. If offered, I’d happily drink it again, but I’m not picking it up again on my own. It’s a good quaff, but forgettable.

A: clear; a touch lighter than cola brown - SRM approx. 18-19; 1 finger khaki head that receded slowly to a thin, uneven cap; the whole glass was virtually a single sheet of lace;

S: nutmeg, all spice, and molasses;

T: after the nose, a surprising balance between malt (molasses) and hops (citrus and earthy); finish is moderately bitter and a bit harsh;

M: medium bodied; coats the mouth; moderate carbonation; dry finish;

O: a nice winter beer; pairing with food would minimize the harshness of the finish;
