22oz bomber. Pretty lackluster offering for a beer of it’s price. Unfiltered red-brown, Big time spiced out tones, ginger and nutmeg competing for the awkward award. Like a Belgian Xmas beer, if they forgot the Belgian yeast and added more chocolate tones. Not at all sessionable. OK at best.

Thanks to my neighbor for this one. Brown /reddish pour, strong smell of heavy spices. Very strong. Flavors of ginger, clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, complexity of spices, maybe overdone. Light to medium body, some bitterness which does balance this brew out. Some heat in this this one, nice warming feeling. Overal decent beer for the season.

2012 bottle to snifter. Served at about 44 degrees. Pours a copper brown with no head but glows in the glass. for some reason I was expecting a darker brew. Aroma is cardamom, nutmeg, and allspice. Taste is just like gingerbread. Spice ismthe predominent flavor. A little,hop bitterness balances it out, though. A little thin but not bad. Well hidden ABV.
