Thanks to Travita for sharing this bottle. The beer pours medium brown with an off-white head. The aroma is strong gingerbread cookies. The aroma is very spicy, it smells like Christmas. The flavor is more gingerbread with some great cookie flavored malt. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. Not sure how they did it, but they made a beer taste exactly like you are eating gingerbread cookies. Very happy I got to try this one.

badgerben (4504) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2010

DalzAle (2000) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2010
Bottle sample. Clear amber pour, a little carbonation and an aroma of overpowering clove and cinnamon. Flavor was also plenty of spice, coriander, cinnamon, etc. Not a big fan of this one, too sweet and way too much spice.

JK (4615) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2010
No question this is a spiced beer. Lots of cinnamon. I also smell cloves and nutmeg. Flavor of fruit loops in the aftertaste. A red beer. The alcohol is too high, and the body could be a little heavier. Not a bad effort, but these guys can do better.

A nice pale brown color. Corriander, cinnamon, and other spices. A very smooth sweet body. Heavily spiced, but solid.
