3.16/5  rDev -14.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: brownish mahogany color. A small tan head that fades away to nothing. A bit on the hazy side

Smell: gingerbread cookies and cinnamon

Taste: the closest taste to gingerbread cookies I have tasted in a beer. Closes off with a strong kick of cinnamon. Lacks much malt flavor though

Mouthfeel: light and cold contrary to the style

Overall: a good tasting beer but it's cold outside! Ramp it up to 8% and let thse malts and warming alcohol shine

on-tap at the brewery

appearance: served in a branded shaker pint - caramel-mahogany body, light beige filmt

smell: gingerbread house, lots of spice - ginger, clove, corriander, orange peel

taste: nice holiday seasonal - was surprised to see it only clock in at 4.5% - if i had known, I would have shipped Ding a growler int the interest of holiday giving. Loads of spice - cinnamon, ginger, corriander, clove, gingerbread, orange peel, light caramel malt

mouthfeel: light, but rich

overall: nice seasonal, heavy handed on the spice

Tap at Noda

Pours a deep clear brown with a white lacing for a head.

Biscuit malt aroma with a light hint of hops.

Dry hops and biscuit malt flavors with a hint of cinnamon.

Full body with a stinging carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Decent warmer, good flavor, a little bland but easy enough to drink.
