5 ounce sample at the brewpub. The aroma on this is pretty damn spicy. Ginger and nutmeg are prominent. Some underlying sweetness is also in there, too. Fairly aromatic. A little heavy on the ginger, though. Transparent dark amber body with a mild off-yellowish head. Fair lacing and good head retention. Starts spicy with hints of ginger and what appears to be nutmeg and allspice. There is also a little sweet maltiness in the middle. Finishes fairly thin. Light metal to finish.
