4.13/5 rDev +4.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Head was minimal but lacing was okay. Nothing special for sure. Color was an attractive light brown with a reddish hue.
Smell had Nutmeg and ginger heavily in the nose.
Taste had a good spicy blend. Ginger was dominant but not overpowering. Maybe some nutmeg (fainter than in the nose), also some cinnamon and all spice. All the flavors were well balanced to definately dominate but give a decent taste.
The carbonation was excellent and there was little evidence of the power if the abv was really 7.5%. I was not overly pleased with this beer but it is fairly decent in you like spiced christmas ales.
Serving type: on-tap
