This spiced Belgian-style ale was brewed in the spirit of holiday breads. Dark roasted malts and large quantities of molasses make a robust and slightly sweet body. Light hopping and spicing from vanilla, cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg create a festive finish.

Taster at Holiday Ale Fest. Tastes like liquid molasses gingerbread cookies. Easy to drink and immensely holiday-ish.
