3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle. Pours a dark brown, 1 finger head which dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is initially ginger and sweetness from the malt, followed by a bit of coffee. Taste is good with a fairly typical porter profile of coffe and chocoloate followed with the ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg. The carbonation is fairly high, but not so much that it is out of style.

Smells like gingerbread. Medium carbonation with very light foam. Taste is all gingerbread. Aftertaste is 10-20 seconds and the same with the addition of a slightly bitter ginger taste.

This is one of my favorite holiday flavors :) It has a very rich toasty flavor while the gingerbread in it is very distinct while not overdone. It’ll pour dark but isn’t as bitter as some of their other brews :)

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Drank a bottle shared with the family. Smells like mild stout, dark too. Perhaps some spices in the back of the olfactory. Decent co2 and mild stoutish flavors in there. Ginger yes, but its not in yer face. No burn and its just layen around in the background barely perceivable. Not overdone in the spices and I appreciate that.

Pour out of bottle, dark reddish brown pour with off white head, aroma brought cinnamon, clove, ginger into a bit of caramel, slight dark fruit, some toasted bread in there with a hint of nuts.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Toasty malt aroma has bready and, yes, ginger overtones. Pours barely translucent mahogany with a fairly thick dirty light tan head. Flavor has roast malt at its core, which supports ginger, cloves, and subtle caramel notes. Texture is rather watery and not too fizzy. Still, a good brew for the winter holidays, whatever you celebrate.
