Sadly, we are no longer carrying this selection. Some have been retired, some are one-off brews, some are from a now-defunct brewery. Please accept our apologies and try another great Brew Crew selection.

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. Hints of citrus arrive mid-palate, while molasses notes persevere in the finish along with a very nice dark-roasted malt dryness. Palate A full, but not sweet, extremely dry finish. Very complex with great flavor balance. 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. Limited.
