Our Special Ale, a dark, rich, heavily spiced ale with a recipe that changes with each passing year. -
The enticing ruby color is topped by a dark creamy head that emits both malty and spicy aromas with ginger being a prominent one. The full body is matched with complex dry and spicy flavors that produce a nice favorable combination before finishing on the dry side.

If you enjoy spiced holiday ales, this is one of the best. A slighty different recipe year to year, 1999 being their 25th issue. Beautiful balance between the malt profile and spices (ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice to name a few). A relaxing sipping beer to be served about 60-65 degrees. Rich and fulfilling. Like biting into a Christmas tree!
