Bottle. Pours black with creamy white head. Smell is ginger, spice, clove. Taste incorporates the classic egg nog spices...lots of nutmeg, some ginger, cinnamon. Creamy mouthfeel...lingering sweetness. Not my cup of tea at all but it might stand out for those that appreciate egg nog.

22oz bomber, presumably from 2013; generously sent as an extra by FleetwoodMatt. Poured into an unlabeled snifter today, 2/6/2014.

App- Dark black body, typical of an imperial stout. Mocha head, about one finger's worth, good retention, not much lacing.

Smell- Nutmeg bomb. Chocolates and roasts are subtle beneath the nutmegs. Interesting but I'm not a big fan.

Flavour- Smell is better than the taste here. Lots of nutmeg, not quite as much of the base imperial stout. Not much actual eggnog here.

Mouthfeel- Creamy, medium bodied, but not particularly interesting. Solid carbonation. Aftertaste is nutmeg.

Overall- Decent beer, nothing special. I don't know where the eggnog is coming from, but I certainly don't get it as much. Lots and lots of nutmeg, though so if you like that, this could be up your alley.

Who can resist the lure of egg nog and stout combined together for a tasty holiday treat? Certainly not me!

The appearance of this offering was dark brown with a thin layer of head. The nose had the distinct and lingering smell of egg nog. The flavor profile is dominated by a fake and overly sweet egg nog flavor. The finish is astringent. This offering tastes too artificial to my palate.
