"Ruby amber pour. Full flavored. Medium bodied winter warmer. Caramel is the main player, but the hops are floral and quite pleasant. Roasted malts and slight bitterness give this beer great balance."

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Past notes. On tap. Colour...slightly hazy brown with a thin head. Nose...holy Jimmy Stewart! This smells line Bedford Falls on a Christmas cookie high!! Loads if spice, especially allspice and ginger, with doughy notes too. Palate..."Mr. Gower?! Mr. Gower??!! Don’t you know me??! It’s me! Ginger Cookie!" And plenty of ginger cookie there is, as well as pepper nuts and lebkuchen. This is like a Christmas cookie in a glass! Not that there’s anything wrong with that! Fruitcake fills in the gaps and sugar plums dance in your head as the sweetly spicy experience continues.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler. Deep mahogany brown with a foamy khaki head that fizzes out rather quickly. Aroma of toffee, pie spice, alcohol and graham cracker. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, zesty spice, dark fruit and a slight alcohol warming. Medium body with average carbonation. Nice beer, the spices are a bit strong but not too overwhelming.
