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.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass.
A- Pours pretty dark for a brown ale, some light coming through on the edges. Small off-white head that didn't stick around.
S- Lots of ginger and some cinnamon. Has a real "asian" food smell. Some brown sugars. The ginger is a bit too much for me.
T- Some roast and cinnamon notes but ginger is the main thing. There is even a bit of that fresh ginger burn in there.
M- A nice heavier mouthfeel compared to other brown ales I've had, one of the better aspects of this beer.
O- It's a bit too much ginger for me but if you love ginger this is the beer for you.
