Very nice. bleeng (1681) - Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Cask at the Smokehouse. Hazy copper with no head. Nose of old ale-sweet and sugary. Taste is sweet but not cloying with barrel aging evident. Virtually no carbonation. Full body and a dry finish. Almost sherry-like and a nice sipper.. JaBier (7871) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - DEC 20, 2009
On tap at the Smokehouse. Clear amber pour with a thin beige head. Heavily spiced aroma of ginger, cinnamon and sweet malt. Sweet malt flavor with ginger, cinnamon and honey with clean, semi-dry finish. Exactly what I want for this style: lots of spice but finishes clean and dry enough that you can drink a couple. willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - APR 28, 2008
20070519 Bottle thanks to Paul. Spicy, dry stuff. Cinnamon and ginger apparent, it’s a bit like a ginger snap cookie. Nice aroma for a spiced brew.

Draft at Alehouse #2. Poured dark brown color with a medium frothy brown head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate complex spicy, nutmeg and honey aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture. Moderate spicy sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of modeate duration. This is a solid beer. sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 12, 2007

bottle shared by Dickinsonbeer. Aroma is lightly oxidized malts, caramel, ginger, and some other spices. Taste is malty and spicy, a bit of oxidation. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 19, 2007
Pours a moderate to deep amber with a thin white head, and some spotty lace. Aroma is tons of ginger and some orange zest, herbal tea and flowery. More tea flavors, ginger root, earth, crystal malt, alcohol isnt too apparant despite the 11+%. Not that great. holdenn (2116) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2007
