Fireside Chat is what 21st Amendment Brewery is calling a “Spiced Winter Ale” The head doesn’t stick around long, but there’s a lot to taste, so I don’t miss it much. It has a slightly smokey nose with cinnamon and licorice notes. The middle is spicy, chewy, and sweet. The finish is roasty, with a bit of coffee and some molasses. This is a nice, full winter warmer that isn’t overly sweet, and had a bit of flavor for every palate. This is a really nice beer.
I give it a 4.3 out of 5.
