A: Pours an overbearing head with very sticky lacing
S: Aroma of freshly baked sweet gingersnap cookies with cotton candy caramelized sugars.
T: Full flavored stout with nice spicing. Rich candied sugar flavors. Funny enough, the sugar flavors really are reminiscent of the white confectioner candy sugar coating on top of cookies. There is a biscuit flavor along with the spicy hinge at the end of the beer mixing with some anise like flavors and a charcoaly like ashiness from black patent presence.
M: Very well done body in my opinion. The carbonation seemed high judged solely on the massive head, but once it settled roughly ten minutes , I could really enjoy the carbonation levels which seemed extremely smooth.
O: Overall a very good stout, and my favorite milk stout to date. There are a lot of flavors going in here to make it more complex while at the same time helping to mask any flaws, but as a full package, I dig it.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance - Almost black. Minuscule khaki head that settles to swirls on the surface.
Smell - Tons of gingerbread. Cinnamon and other Christmas spices. Some chocolate.
Taste - Wow. Lots of ginger. Closer to gingersnaps than gingerbread. Strong cinnamon again. Some chocolate in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium body, maybe too thin for such a big stout with big flavors. Well carbonated.
Overall - The spices elevate this beyond the what the base stout seems to deliver.
