3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice bottle from normyk. Poured into a snifter.
The beer pours out very dark, much darker than I expected. It has nightlights if chestnut and mahogany. Not much of a head.
The spices are sweetand aromatic. Up close it smells like a malty rich strong ale. Lots of ginger bread, Nutmeg, cherries and light cinnamon.
Spices are pretty big, but quite unique. Equally as big is a deep maltiness. Gingerbread, dried cherries, toffee, cocoa, raisin. It starts strong but the finish is lackluster.
Carbonation is pretty high and the body leaves me wanting more heft.
This its almost like a fruitcake in a glass. One of the more interesting winter warmers.
