3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Elevator. Out of the 12 beers I tried, this on was my favorite. A truly nice winter warmer. Aroma was outstanding. Ginger bread and vanilla wafers. Flavor was cinnamon, gingerbread, caramel, black pepper. Sooo much going on here it was like a Christmas party in my mouth, but I loved it. Alcohol presence was pretty noticeable on this on.

6 pack from giant eagle. Sweet and spicy nose. Medium light body with a moderate carbonation. Nutmeg and maybe even pumpkin in there. Smooth finish with just a little bite to remind you that you're a man. One of the better Xmas beers.

This brew pours a clear brown with a medium caramel head. It has an intresting spice smell that I canít quite place. I think it might be somewhere between chiles/peppers and some other, less spice-like vegetable. Decent bitter taste with a nice sweet/sour balance that isnít too overwhelming. A light to medium body with a lasting finish that leves you wanting more. This is a winter brew that I will revisit again and again.
