Such a cool idea for a Christmas beer. It is a new beer taste to me and the Porter style fit it well. Poured a dark molasses brown with a tan head. Lots of peppermint along with chocolate, dark coffee, burnt bread, brown sugar and vanilla in the aromatics. Sweet enough to be a treat but bitter enough to enjoy without being dessert in a cup. More of a novelty beer but so glad I got to try it, perfect for the Winter. Nice mid/heavy mouthfeel with soft carbonation.
