3.13/5  rDev -16.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

22 oz bottle served in a Pipeworks snifter. Batch #180.

A: Pours a solid black color with a light khaki head forming on the pour. It recedes quickly to a thin ring. Some splotches of lace.

S: The spices really dominate this nose. A ton of cinnamon and peppercorn with some light vanilla sweetness. Mild chocolate underneath, but this is mostly the spices here.

T: As with the nose the spices dominate the taste, but thankfully it's a tad more balanced. Cinnamon with the clove and some light citrus. Light lactose, some roast and a little chocolate. A little ginger bread to it. ABV is well hidden.

M: Medium bodied with a nice mouthfeel. Medium carbonation with a little bit of prickly carbonation bubbles. Would be pretty nice if the taste wasn't so harsh.

O: I see where they were going with this, but the base beers gets lost with the dominating cinnamon and clove spices. Not that well executed in my opinion. On it's own it doesn't really work, but if paired with another heavily spice food or treat it would be really nice. I could sip a few ounces of this around Christmas time while eating some ginger bread cookies.
