Homebrewing - My Spiced Winter Ale

My Spiced Winter Ale has also been in primary fermentation for about two weeks now. It started with an OG (original gravity) of 1.032 (again, lower than what the target was supposed to be... 1.040) It's down to about 1.010 right now (about 2.9% abv.)

I'm just not sure about this beer. The spices used (a mulling spice blend) are a little strong for my taste. A lot of cinnamon smell and taste. I'm supposed to put about a half an ounce in the secondary fermentation, but I think I will leave it out, hoping the smell and taste mellows out in secondary.

I'll be transferring it to secondary today.
