  • Poured clear with a huge amount of frothy, white foam. Some really nice retention - the amount you would expect from so much foam. Good spider web lacing. Nice looking beer.

    Aroma carries itself from the glass to my nose while sitting on the table. Nutmeg, cinnamon, and pumpkin - some malt too. Amazingly despite the ease of distance of the aroma, overall it isn't that strong of an aroma.

    Taste carries on from the nose. Cinnamon is by far the strongest spice in the taste, which is a little to much. Nothing else really comes through that strongly. Could you use a little more balance as well as over all flavor. Finishes a little dry.

    Light end of medium carbonation and light body which could be a little bit watery if you push it.

    Not bad but not something I really enjoyed because of the strong cinnamon. A little light overall. I don't know if I would seek this out again but if someone gave it to me, I would drink it. Enjoy!
