Fireside Chat

21st Amendment Brewing (San Leandro, CA)
"Fireside Chat is a subtle twist on the traditional seasonal brew. We begin with a rich, dark, English-style ale and then we improvise with spices until we know we have a beer worth sharing with the nation."

Winter Spiced Ale with spices and cocoa nibs. Winter (Oct.-Dec.) seasonal.
Got a bit of a sweet/tart thing going on with some undefined spiciness. The cocoa is there in the back somewhere.
I'm a sucker for brown ales, and while this is a bit different I did enjoy it.
As is often the case, as the beer warmed the aroma and taste improved.
(hmm ... at 7.9% I'm really debating having a second)

7.9% ABV, 45 IBU
