Eli threw another interception. He really isn’t looking great this year. As an Eagles fan, this makes me very happy. Anyways, let’s see how this beer went.
Style: Munich Dunkel Lager
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “First brewed in 2008 as a Halloween one-off release, ’31,’ took the classic Munich Dunkel and added seasonal spices to create a new fall favorite. Then, in 2011, we DOUBLED the spicing to take the taste of this amber colored, medium-bodied German-style lager to a new level of flavor. The resulting variant of ’31’ indulges your senses with its smooth, malty palate, moderate 5.2% abv, and double helping of fall spices for a refreshingly intense finish of cinnamon and nutmeg that makes Double Spiced ’31’ all treat and no tricks.”
Random: Washington is getting killed by Tampa Bay right now. Talk about embarrassing…
This brew poured with a one finger, pure white head that dissipated quickly and left very little lacing on the pint glass. There was a crown left on top of the slightly cloudy, very dark copper body with high carbonation. The nose had the typical pumpkin pie spices. I picked up cinnamon with nutmeg and bread. The taste presented with a big brown sugar note along with bread and then the pumpkin pie spices came through. I found the spice to be less on the taste than I expected. This weird fruity sweetness came through that definitely was not pleasant. The body was on the thicker side with moderate carbonation. It had a sticky sweet finish that was long and slightly unpleasant. This brew wasn’t that great in my opinion, and at $1.67 for a twelve ounce bottle, there are many better options out there.
