I greatly admire the execution of this beer, but it isnít for me. While all the spices make for a magnificent aroma, the gingerbread flavor didnít quite work with the roasted malt taste. Not for me, anyway. I suspect a lot of people might like the combination of rich malt and holiday flavors. Appearance was quite good, and the balance works nicely. The 9% ABV is well-hidden beneath the body. And did I mention the smell is fantastic? It really is like a holiday potpourri.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from the bottle into a glass. Aroma consists of ginger, brown sugar, nuts, and yeast. The taste focuses too much on the ginger, it ends up becoming a ginger bomb. Medium body with a moderate amount of carbonation and a sticky mouth feel. Meh
