Beer Description

Hints of citrus arrive mid-palate, while molasses notes persevere in the finish along with a very nice dark-roasted malt dryness.

Appearance
Deep black with a dark brown, foamy head.

Aroma
First impressions are of cinnamon and allspice, combined with fruity banana esters and hints of clove from the Belgian yeast. As the beer warms in the glass, swirl it around and take in the aromatics one more time-caramel, dark toffee and molasses notes come into play as well. The end result is a wonderful juxtaposition of roasted malts, yeast esters and baking spices.

Taste
Intense cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice with banana esters dominate up front.

Overall
The aromas wafting through the brewery as we brewed this beer were amazing! We couldn’t think of a better way to sign off this Epic series of beers.

This beer will transport you to a very warm place; the house is warm, a fire’s going and grandma’s in the kitchen baking away.
