Holiday Ale festival 2012 - Dark black in color, clear with a thin head. Big spices and tons of malt. I do taste lots of pepper and cinnamon in the flavor and finish. Very interesting beer.

Taster at Holiday Ale Festival. I like ginger, but this was ginger, paired with ginger, with a side of ginger. A little overpowering.

Tap @ Holiday Ale Fest 2012... Poured dark brown, near black, with a light brown head. Aroma had a ton of gingerbread spice, sort of like the cookie. Tasted a bit tart with vinegar and such Noticeable middle eastern cooking spices too. A bit much on the palate. The aroma was the saving grace here as taste wise it didn’t stand up.
