3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
FROM NOTES: October 16, ’13. Poured from a 22 oz. bomber into a snifter.
A: HOLY gingerbread, Batman! More gingerbread flavors and nutmeg with a hint of pine and some toasted malt.
A: Pours almost black with a two finger tan head.
T: Follows the nose with gingerbread flavors, then some roasted malt notes, along with chocolate, coffee, toasted malts. HUGE cinnamon and spice flavors leave it a bit unbalanced, but still fairly enjoyable.
P: A smooth, medium to full body with a low carbonation, but not under carbonated at all.
O: I enjoyed this beer but the extremely strong spice makes one or two for the holiday season plenty for me.

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.
