4.2/5  rDev +10.8%

Got this in a trade with icetrauma, thanks man. 22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but was bottled recently. Pours fairly clear extremely dark reddish brown color with a nice 2 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big caramel, chocolate, toffee, raisin, fig, toast, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, brown sugar, dark bread, light roast, and light herbal. Excellent aromas with great complexity, strength, and balance of malt/spice notes; very inviting. Taste of caramel, chocolate, toffee, raisin, fig, toast, dark bread, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, brown sugar, light roast, and herbal. Light spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, chocolate, dark fruit, toast, toffee, dark bread, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg, light roast, and herbal on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice flavor balance, complexity, and robustness; with a great malt/spice balance; and minimal cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a creamy and fairly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent winter warmer style! Great balance and robustness of flavors and spices; and extremely smooth to sip on. A highly enjoyable offering.

On tap at the Petrol Station in Houston.

The beer pours a dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is full of Christmas spices, with quite a bit of cinnamon and some caramel and toffee malt. The aroma is very spicy overall and also has a little bit of alcohol mixed in.

The flavor follows suit. I get a lot of cinnamon and caramel malt, as well as a little bit of nutmeg. There is also some nice raisin notes in the flavor, as well as some other dark fruit such as cherries. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Poured from growler to pint glass. dark brown, clear, no head, moderate visible carbonation.

Smells of holiday spice(nutmeg, clove), caramel, nuts, wood.

Tastes nice and warm with spice. Cinnamon and vanilla dominate, very smokey wood, walnuts

Feels sticky and metallic.

Is a good winter warmer, but doesn't stand out in a crowd.

Poured into a goblet, this ale comes out with a thick dark tan head roughly a finger and a half thick and slowly thins out to about half a finger in thickness. It is very dark throughout and slight amber hues can be seen in its outer edges.
The aroma is strong and hits you as soon as you pop the top off. Strong gingerbread, pumpkin first hit your nose, mild citrus follows. Mild medicinal smells do come through.
The spices are up front and hit your tongue immediately, ginger and pumpkin are present, a mild liquorish flavor follows along with some nutmeg and cinnamon. The taste is very pleasing .
The body has medium to light mouthfeel and warms up your mouth as you drink it.
Overall this is a pretty good spice beer and I would recommend trying it .

This is the second half of the beer poured into a copper mug.
The copper seems to help the beer retain its thick head, the aroma is all but lost and is accompanied by a slight metallic smell when you can detect the ales aroma. The gingerbread is still very strong…
The spices are dulled out just a bit and to tell you the truth, I prefer the taste in the copper mug. The gingerbread and pumpkin are drummed down just a bit and the cinnamon is brought out a little more, the nutmeg is gone, but I can pick up some very mild lemon zest(probably from the copper), slight fig and coriander come out as well.
Overall I prefer the copper mug tasting, just don’t let the ale get too warm on you…
