Before hops became the conventional flavoring for beer, medieval European brewers used proprietary spice mixtures, and many modern breweries still use a blend of spices along with hops for seasonally-brewed holiday beers. We started with a Scottish-style ale and added a blend of spices to create a medium-bodied, malty, clean base beer with a sweet, exotic spice character reminiscent of mulled wine.

4.0 / 5.02 ReviewsSpice Profile Settled Over Time...I brewed this batch on 9/28 (primary only) and bottled on 10/13. I used the full spice mixture, and the flavor really galled me until this weekend 11/22. The flavors have melded well and this has turned out to be a very nice winter ale. I am a fan!November 24, 2014Glad I tried it.This was a great beer during Halloween to Thanksgiving time, and because I wanted to try something new. It tastes a little bit like a pumpkin ale. I did not get the big malty character out if it like others, may have mashed too low. In the end, it's a good beer that all people can enjoy and especially if you are looking for something different to brew.November 14, 2015
