Many times when a brewer decides to open up his spice rack and really throw the works at his brew the result is less than palatable and the beer sits as an overpowering mess. Despite all of the spices that live in Todd's Wassail recipe, the beer works smoothly together with flavors harmonizing on the palate to bring you a spicy winter treat.
