A: The beer is crystal clear dark garnet red in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short off white head that rapidly dissipated leaving a thin collar consisting of large bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderately strong aromas of holiday spices are present in the nose—nutmeg seems to stand out most prominently followed by notes of ginger. As the beer warms up, the smell seems to resemble a gingerbread cookie.
T: Quite similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of nutmeg along with notes of ginger and additional hints of cinnamon. There is a slight bit of sweetness and no alcohol is perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. The beer coats your mouth a little bit.
O: I found this beer to have a nice amount of holiday spices that didn't seem to be overdone. It also drank rather easily for a winter warmer.
