Draft... Pours clear and copper with a white head that never fully dissipates. The bouquet is bursting at the seams with winter holiday spice-rack goodies and notes of sugar cookie and toffee malts. Medium to full-bodied with modest carbonation. Echoing the aroma, the sweet, spicy flavor is a fusion of sugar cookie, toffee and winter spices. Finishes bittersweet with a slight nod toward the hops.

Tap at the brewpub. Orange pour with a white clingy head. This is straight gingerbread cookie, and it’s delicious.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2012 Holiday Cookie is one of those beers that puts you in a particular mood but not something you would want to drink all the time. It tastes like Christmas sugar cookie sprinkled with a good dose of cinnamon and a bit of hop character. Aroma is light and fresh with a spicy aftertaste. Body and appearance is closest to a pale ale although HC is in a category of its own. Give it a try before you do your Black Friday shopping!
