Served at room temp, it's a clear copper colour with a 2 finger head of foam.

Ginger and honey in the nose. There's another spice here, I reckon it's nutmeg. Nice aromas going on.

Ginger first, honey sweet flavours second, nutmeg brings up the rear. Sight hop bitterness here but that isn't really needed for me to like this brew.

Smooth smooth mouthfeel. Very creamy. Oh and the foam is long lasting and there's awesome lacing.

In plain words, this is very good.

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

Appearance: Poured from a 720 ml. bottle into a Duvel Belgian Tulip glass. Dark amber in color with a ½ off white head. Spotty lacing that disappears quickly.

Smell: Make no mistake; the ginger aroma is prominent and distinct. An aggressive swirl of the glass brings out even more of the ginger aroma, followed by a hint of sweet candy-like booziness. Not the same ginger ale smell from a soda, as this was sweeter and spicier with a citrus undertone.

Taste: Exactly as I thought it was be. Ginger, ginger, ginger all the way through with the same hint of sweet booziness at the finish. I catch a glimpse of nutmeg and all-spice with each sip. Dessert-like sweetness is prominent.

Mouthfeel: Sweet and slick, with a mildly bitter and warming finish. There is no doubt this beer dabbles in the 8% ABV range.

Overall: You have to love ginger to truly appreciate this beer. I happen to be a big fan of ginger, which is why I enjoyed this beer so much. It gets better as it warmed. If you like ginger then give it a try. This is my first beer from Kiuchi Brewery. I’m looking forward to trying more of them. Enjoy…
