Thanks to whitenads for sending me this one.

Enjoy by: 3/24/14.

Pours a clear dark orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, gingerbread, cinnamon, ginger, and earth aromas. Taste is much the same with gingerbread, cinnamon, and ginger flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth and spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that still has a fresh spice and ginger combination even being over 6 months past its enjoy by date.

Serving type: bottle.
