Bottle from the BA Buffalo bottle share. Pours mahogany hue with a silky tan head with good retention. Nose is all ginger bread. Taste is sweet, but not cloying, features ginger bread, vanilla, and chocolate. Body is big and burly but slick none the less. One of the highlights of the night for sure.

750mL bottle poured into a tulip -- Opaque brown/black pour with quick to dissipate tan head. Aroma of sweet Christmas. Flavor follows and the spice profile is complimentary, subtle and delicious. This beer is so delicious you’ll want to drink a whole bottle and is easy enough to drink you could and high enough abv you’ll be drunk if you do.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ccs from Whole Foods Plymouth and Capone’s. Pours hazy dark brownish black, with a mahogany/ruby look at the edges through direct light. The head is 3-finger, tan, and creamy. This one looks great. Nose is delicisous gingerbread, roasty dark malt, spice. Tastes great, dark malt paired with an assertive gingerbread taste, raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg. Purists will bristle, but I find this to be an incredibly well made example of this style.
