Very spicy with ginger and highly carbonated, an ale version of a “dark and stormy”.

The appearance is a murky dark amber color with an off-white head. As expected, there is lots of ginger on the nose. It’s got an almost candied ginger character to it. Sort of potpourri-like and quite herbal. Some bread but lots of brown sugar aroma making this very sweet. The flavor is intensely spicy with a ton of ginger flavor. There is quite a bit of sweetness to it. Surprisingly, no alcohol is detectable. Still, it’s hard to drink much of this.
