Around cellar temperature in a snifter. Looks like the name's been abbreviated to "Merry Maker." They've taken out the "Mischief," apparently.
It has a nice and creamy, light brown cookie dough-colored head, two fingers high. The body is black.
Sure does smell similar to spicy gingerbread! All the spices listed on the label are pretty much present. I also get vanilla and a good amount of molasses, which makes sense since molasses is a key ingredient in gingerbread. There's probably a bit of a raisin scent as well. Very, very nice.
Those spices figure heavily into the flavor, too, playing along-side molasses and a milky sweetness which shows up in the finish. There may also be some subtle earthiness in the aftertaste. Roastiness is low.
The feel is well-carbonated and quite full. One can chew on a sip.
Pretty good stuff. The festive spices, so commonly associated with gingerbread and pumpkin pie, are this one's main attraction.
