Thanks to all the forward sweet- and baking-spice characteristics, this is like Christmas in a glass. Attractive notes of cinnamon stick, ginger, nutmeg, brown sugar, caramel and honey abound on the nose and carry through to the medium-weight palate. Toasted caramel malt, pie crust and fruit cake flavors mingle harmoniously with the dominant spice tones, ending dry and spicy, with a pleasant cinnamon-like warmth.
