Ginger and toasted, nutty, caramelly malt dominate the aroma. Floral hops add a more beer-like quality. Flavor reveals deeply toasted caramel malt at the base, toasted enough to lend bitterness, along with notes of chocolate and specialty malt fruitiness. Bittering hops round out the flavor profile. More bitter than most winter warmers. The spices are fairly subtle, with just a hint of ginger surfacing. A welcome change of pace, though I wish it were a tad less bitter.

Dark brown. Nothing head.

Smells of subdued sweet allspice.

Taste is of bittersweet chocolate with espresso hop bitterness at the end. Mouthfeel is mostly light with crisp carbonation leaving this just short of being a porter. A bit of fruitcake winter spice flavor in taste, as well.

Overall a nice little warmer.

This pours a medium brown color with a foamy, light brown head. The aroma is malty with a bit of spice. The flavor is very bold with malts and spice flavor. Fairly decent for the style of beer. It does leave a bit of a chalky after taste.
