Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a stemless wine glass. Appears a beautiful deep amber color with a nice tan head. The head has good staying power, and leaves decent lacing.
The nose has hints of ginger, honey, spices and sweet caramel malt. Very nice aroma here, just what you would expect. The taste is right in line with this with the malts dominating, and the honey playing a supporting role. The spices also come through in the forefront with ginger and cinnamon dominating. The combinations here work really well, and the hops even seem to appear in the finish with a little floral note.
The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, with active carbonation, and there's a pretty sticky finish that you can feel for a good 30 seconds after each sip. Overall, this is a good winter beer / Christmas ale. Not the best style on earth, but this gets the job done when you're looking for something to warm you up or looking for something that fits in during the season.
