From Mikkeller Shop. In Teku glass. Bomber. Playing A Golden Wake. Very spiced, reallt christmasty. Pumpkin notes and maybe some ginger. Zesty. In the long run it becones a bit tiresome.

I'm not one to write off a beer just because it's over the top spiced, but if you are, you'll probably just want to stay away. However, the spice profile in this one just didn't do much for me, making the drinkability low. I struggled to get through the bomber while watching MNF. Can't put my finger on what it is exactly that was throwing me off. Ginger? I don't know, Southern Tier 2xmas and pumking both have tons more, and I like both those beers. Anyway, again, if you like the highly spiced Christmas beers, it's worth a shot. I'm just glad l waited until I found it marked down, and won't be revisiting this one.

Interesting (good) smell and taste (honey ginger etc). But I was done with it a few oz into the 22oz bottle.

22 ounce bottle served in pint glass.

Pours a nice caramel color with a 1 finger tan head.

Smells malty and of Christmas spices.

Taste pretty good. Heavy on spices. Kind of taste like a snicker doodle.

Not bad but at $8.99 for a 22 ounce :(
