4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Dark brown pour with a small, off-white head. The aroma is an intermingling of gingerbread, milk chocolate and caramel. Full-bodied and velvety with soft carbonation. Nearly mirroring the nose, the flavor is a mélange of fudge, milk chocolate and gingerbread. Finishes malty, buttery and just so dang Christmassy. Thanks to biggsbowler for providing this absolutely delicious beer!
