2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle of unlabeled size thanks to ericandersnavy) medium yellow still pour with ok lacing. Nose of gingerbread, anise, fruit cake (candied fruit). Taste is heavy on the spices, cinnamon, honey, anise, ginger and candied fruit. Thin body. This one was way too spicy for me to enjoy it more. I normally don’t rate things based on "drinkability" but this affected my rating on this as it was hard to even drink a couple ounces.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Corti Bros. in Sacramento, CA. Pours tarnished honey color with no carbonation. Smooth sweetish aroma of ginger over honey. Medium minus body. Flavor is quite ginger. Slightly peppery impression. It’s sweet, but the ginger more than balances that. Good clean finish, leaving ginger notes behind. Mouthsmacking.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Taster at Seattle International Beer Festival. This has probably one of the best aromas I’ve encountered. It smells of Christmas, like cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and a bit of honey. If it had been winter rather than summer I would’ve done my best to find more. This is very smooth and the honey taste lingers.
