Copper color. Rich, dimensional aromas of spicy pumpkin and mincemeat pies and fresh whipped cream with a satiny fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body and a long, carrot cake, kale, and peppery spice accented finish. Delicious and sure to please. A thanksgiving beer.

This category is, practically speaking, a catchall for beers that don’t fit neatly in an existing category. Specialty beers may be flavored with, or affected by, unusual ingredients (ginger, chipotle peppers) or fermentation agents (Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus), or brewed with unusual fermentables (buckwheat, sweet potatoes, maple syrup). In addition, the base beer may be related to almost any classic beer style. Given the variation possible in this category, there are no established standards for appearance, aroma or flavor. Instead, beers in this category are defined by a pleasing combination of the beer’s elements, and overall drinkability.
