Cap to the end of a busy and crazy weekend, that snowed and freezing rain on and off the entire time, so a nice winter beer sounds good. Thanks to ApostleBrewing for this interesting beer.

Pours a big creamy thick rich almost 2 finger head that forces me to stop pouring, that fades at a med pace with nice layered lacing, over slightly clear dark mahogany brown color with faint hints of maroon light sneaking through.

NOse is explosive, dark brown malts, caramel, molasses, brown sugar, plenty of bready biscuit toasty cookie like bready malts. Big time spices, baking and holiday spices galore, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, etc etc etc!! Somewhere under that is a bit of cocoa, cocoa powder and a little bit of baking chocolate, and ginger... gingerbread cookie is def nice and strong.

Taste starts with bitter mix, between the spices, light roasty like dark malts, and faint hint of earthy hops. Then into creamy malts, creamy almost lush malts with a light possibly lactose or oats, light milk chocolate, as well as a light caramel and toasty brown malts, and into lots more biscuit and bready brown malts. Of course, big time spices, baking and holiday spices are what mostly dominate this beer, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and more gingerbread cookie. A light bitter dark chocolate and cocoa powder in the back end again, is more of a background thought but nothing big. Bitterness builds as it goes, between the spices and earthy hops both really ramping, and a light tannin flavor. Finish gets quite bitter and tannic, little salty almost astringent bitterness, plenty of lingering spices, little cocoa, brown malts, etc, quite dry too.

Mouth is med bodied, creamy, decent carb, hint of warming booze in the middle.

Overall not bad, an interesting beer overall, a bit too much on the spices and bitterness, especially as it gets tannic salty and a bit astringent on the finish, but otherwise a nice beer, I like the toasty biscuit brown malts, sweet flavors, ginger bread, light cocoa, etc, and a tasty beer overall. If this were barrel aged it would go to a whole other level I think.
