Notes:
2 months after brewing: The spices are quite strong. It is obvious that this is going to need a bit more aging. -Greg

4 months after brewing: The spices are beginning to meld and mellow somewhat. It is now possible to begin picking out the individual flavors. A really nice vanilla note has showed up, although cinnamon is still a bit of a bully. Cold storage is helping immensely. -Greg
