On tap at Pony Bar HK. Pours a translucent dark brown with a quickly fading white head. Aroma is all spice cabinet, some brown sugar, some malt but mostly nutmeg, ginger, black pepper, cardamom. Flavor is the same, lightly malty and sweet but mostly just a spice bomb. Full bodied, spicy finish.

murphym45 (769) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 29, 2010
On tap at the brewpub, a new winter seasonal. Dark brown with some off white head. Aroma is is roasted malt and spicy but also has a very strong medicinal/menthol aroma that is somewhat unpleasant and hard to get past. Taste is more spice and malt, but once again the menthol comes back on the finish. Maybe it’s just my palate because a few other people around me thought that it was really good, but I couldn’t get past this strong minty flavor.
