4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From deep within the pine rich forrest, the waft of gingerbread lures...actually, it seizes you by the scruff of the neck and hurls you into the candy laden cabin. The witch, proud of her creation, allows you to gaze about...the dark ginger cookie walls, the creamy hot cocoa, the peppermint chandelier...you are intoxicated with temptation and you drink heavily her potion...its smooth spiced chocolate coats your throat and warms you deeply. The bitterness of your fate materialized in liquid form...care not, doomed little one...just enjoy!

Aged for one year. Poured into a 12 oz. Snifter and shared with a friend. Dark in color with a thick tannish head. Notes of all spice and ginger with a solid stout base. Recommend aging to those who are willing to wait.
