aged for over a year in a cellar.
A- caramel, smokey amber come to mind for the color of this beer.Not much in the way of head, just slight lacing clinging to the edge of the glass.
S- sweet malts with a nice backing of ginger, but very well balanced
T- This beer really reminds me of a nice Belgian style ale. The ginger and malts balance out really well and there is a nice yeast profile at the end.
M- medium to low carbonation which works really well for this beer. Medium body and some slight residual sugar at the end leaves a nice subtle after taste.
D- I could have a couple but I don't think all night long and certainly not at $5.00 a bottle. but for someone who loves ginger this was a really nice brew.

(bottle code RG.13.12 - poured into a tall Unibroue tulip)
A: tall, gooey-spongy foam to start... somewhat cloudy, dark caramel color - looks like liquified caramel in the process of cooling off dry...
S: browned, dry caramel overtone... old, candied ginger
T: heavy malt foundation, malty ginger beer, herbal bitterness in the finish... powdered ginger and grain-husky bitterness lingers... tiny hint of spicy alcohol
M: fatty-round... thinnish, chewy-gooey viscosity... booze enhances the notably dry finish
O: caramel-y malt and powdered ginger are core to the taste here... it appears that it could be a goopy mess, however, the flavors seem to have decent balance and it thankfully ends up surprisingly dry... if you dig malt and ginger anything, this is a good one
