Thanks Kels for the sharing the bottle.
750ml capped Belgian bomber poured into a snifter.
A: Pours a deep dark brown and sits nearly black in the glass, no light getting through. Moderate head on the pour with only a bit of retention and not much lacing.
S: Very subtle aroma, even after letting it warm up. Some of the ginger bread aroma with some light black licorice. Light malt and yeast. Very subtle overall.
T/M: More of the ginger bread spice and black licorice. Some caramel and brown bread malts. The yeast is slightly bigger, but still not huge. Body is medium to medium full with good carbonation.
D: Tasty holiday seasonal but leaves a little something to be desired. Myabe just more depth.

Thanks for tossing this my way scottbreaks! Split with the mrs into 2 bruery snifters. Had the BA version not too long ago and dug it.
a - brew pours dark purple/brown with a nice light brown head with really nice retention.
s- nose is fairly festive with gingerbread and old spice over plum.
t - leads with the belgian dark and finishes with the spices afternthey wash over they flavor mid sip.
m - a bit heavy handed on the carb for a bruery beer which aren't usually this fizzy. That said, this is way lighter than your average 11% brew.
o - overall not quite as nice as the BA version, but not bad. Happy to finally pick up where I left off in trying the beers from this series, but aside from the series, these are fairly run of the mill beers from an otherwise phenomenal brewery. I wouldn't hunt it down for any other reason.
