Grain bill is nice, but I would add some munich or something to up the maltiness a little. The citrus hops are likely going to create a conflict of flavors with the spices. You want to stay earthy,spicy,transparent with your hops on these. Your spices will be nice. I used 1 tsp penang clove, 1 tsp fresh nutmeg, 1 tsp fresh cinn, in the recipe below.....I brewed it 12 weeks ago...its %8 ABV and is good already. OH, I used bells yeast strain, but I think WLP007 or another english ale yeast would be nice.
My non beer geek buddy drank one and stated that it tasted like christmas bread that his grandma used to make. mission accomplished!
