And so I headed over the street because we couldn't really do at Christmas policy at Jones taverns since I ripped it down now, and as actually gone almost then there, it's gone. They've taken away what's a hospital. Now, it's hospital space is probably going to be a pocket for little while. Nevertheless, we couldn't go without traditional magnum of anchor brewing company's Christmas eo twenty eighteen now on the front of it. They also have a label is a different tree every year. Now they've been doing this for forty years who knew right way back. So with magnum on the top of it anybody. Can you read what it says on that?

But it's nothing that doesn't doesn't smell like it's gonna be a cinnamon bomb and dark caramel, not just the way it looks to bit. So kind of tastes the way it smells. It's very dry finish. Which is probably the spices abet. They've got definitely helped spicing. Definitely. Yeah. I take tastes just like a dash of all Spicer nutmeg or something.
