Aroma is toasted malts, toffee, caramel, and light clove .Taste is rich malts, coffee, caramel and toasted bread. Well balanced and pretty deep in palate. Appearance is a black body with a medium beige head that retains fairly well.

750 mL bottle from the brewery. Nice pour - stout brown with a thick, creamy head. The brown spices, and perhaps mint, are apparent in the nose. All that’s apparent, really. The flavour is more complex, with roast and alcohol joining the spices. The spicing is heavy, but not overwhelmingly so. It’s the wrong time of year for this, but it’s not bad.

Crazy ginger and spice and chocolate nose. Very spicy. Huge spice flavor, ginger, licorice, chocolate. Great smooth body. Way too over the top on the spice for my enjoyment, but well done.

Bottle shared by Jean-Yves at Craft Beer Holiday 2015. Big ginger and chocolate aroma that gives it a somewhat mint chocolate character. Full velvety mouthfeel and roasty chocolate with a ginger bite to it which slowly builds up to deliver some spicy heat. Great.

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2015
750 ml bottle. Pours black with a thin, yet resilient beige head. Aroma is cocoa, hazelnut, cinnamon, milk chocolate. Flavor is chocolate, coffee, cinnamon, nutmeg and hazelnut. Finish is ginger, cinnamon, bitter coffee. Lots of lingering ginger. Medium to full body, velvety mouthfeel, weak to average carbonation. Maybe a bit too much ginger, but pretty good nonetheless.

blankboy (7275) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2015
[Bottle (750ml)] Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with an average size semi-lasting frothy light-brown head. Good amount of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, spices, vanilla, wood, hints of chocolate and coffee and finally, leafy hops. Flavour is nice and spicy along with roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, wood and a good amount of leafy hops. A hint of alcohol but not much. Very spicy finish. Medium bodied. Super, I love spicy and I love this.

Jultsu (753) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2015
Tummanmusta, portterimaisen tyylinen reunoille vetäytyvä vaahto. Tuoksussa jouluisen eksoottiset mausteet, suutuntuma liukas ja todella voimakkaan inkiväärinen, ylidominoivasti. Myös huteran kuohuva ja samettinen fiilis. Jälkimaku ei muutu inkivääristä.
