Boozy, sticky malt strong ale with hints of ginger bread, cinnamon, and fig.

Best by February 21st.

It pours a clear copper with a 1" head of foam...does have some nice lacing.

The smell is very spicy and fruity. Some nutmeg and cinnamon, some dark fruit which is plum like.

The taste is sweet, spicy, fruity, in that order. The spicy character reminds me of a Belgian Ale of some sort...now picking up cloves and a yeasty/wheaty flavour. The warmer it gets, the more complex it seems to get.

Medium body and carbo.

A very festive enjoyable brew in a 16 ounce can, I probably wouldn't want to drink 'em back to back. ;^)
