1st Taste: Spiced and creamy, a basic pleasant experience.
Overall: Lot's of hype about this beer from anyone that lives within a 60-mile radius of Cleveland. After repeated tastes, still got the spice with a little malt sweet, and light-medium silky mouthfeel. It's a good blend of cinnamon and ginger along with all the other flavors in this brew. A couple around the holidays were be totally approriate, but can't see drinking a whole bunch of these. Maybe people like it the same way they like Christmas parties. It's fun to get a little tipsy with a little more alcohol than normal (7.5% abv), but it harmless fun since you can't taste it with the spice overlay. So, Cleveland be proud of this brew and I toast to you. But, like Christmas, once it's over , it's OVER.
