4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from the Folsom BevMo. Pours a very dark brown with a 2 finger creamy dark tan head. Aroma is dark malt and lots of spice - clove and ginger seem to stand out. Full bodied with creamy carbonation. The flavor is incredibly flavorful. Nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, particularly (in sort of aftertaste) ginger, but there seems to be even more. The spice is so strong I’d go for rosemary, except the evergreen is missing. To borrow from the movie: "Intense is the word" Woof.
