This pours a cola caramel with a thick creamy head.

The aroma is like a strong Christmas tree, with a herbaceous piney blend of goodness coming across.

The flavor is sharply bitter without being hoppy.

There’s a blend of Christmas spices, herbal and medicinal.

I like that flavor profile and the combination. Works for me.

Dark brown with a foamy white head. Smell is very strong molasses and ginger, and so is the flavor. The spices are a bit overpowering, and their combination makes for a grassy taste that makes it difficult to enjoy. Not very good, despite a promising premise.

A - Pours a deep dark brown with a very thin tan head. Light amount of sticky lacing.

S - Very faint aroma of ginger and cinnamon.

T - Big burst of ginger upfront. Nice amount of sweet molasses, cinnamon, and nutmeg follow. The ginger lasts long in the finish.

M - Medium mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Sticky dry mouthfeel.

O - Decent beer that relies heavily on the spices. Very one dimensional. It would be hard to have more than one.
