22 oz. bomber, aged for about a year

A- Very dark brown with one finger of tan head.

S- Nutmeg and cinnamon are dominant, but as the beer warms up the maltiness from the base comes through.

T- Tastes like you're drinking a gingerbread cookie soaked in beer.

M- Very creamy

O- I think this beer gets a lot better with age. I find that the fresher this beer is, the harder it is to finish an entire serving. Even with some age on it, I could not have finished the bomber by myself; I just can't stomach that much nutmeg. I was surprised though that the base beer shined a little bit as it warmed up.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

This beer pours an opaque black with a small amount of light tan head, not too much lacing going on.

On the nose I can pick up on some really strong spices and a very small amount of roasted malt.

Flavor wise its got an overwhelming amount of spice in it, not really picking up too much on the gingerbread aspect of it. I would have really expected it to have a much more of a bready malt backbone, but its overpowered by the spice. Its not too boozy or hoppy though which is nice.

Its got a decent body without too much carbonation, nice and slick.

Not a huge fan of this, was expecting something a little breadier, and the spice character completely overpowers this beer. 'Malt Liquor with Spices' is a fitting description, not really a fully bodied stout that I expected.
