22oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance
Black with a short tan head that dissipates quickly.

Nose
Cinnamon, caramelized brown sugar, gingersnap cookies and mint.

Taste
Gingersnap cookies and cinnamon. Lighter notes of caramelized brown sugar and mint. The stout is a little buried under the spices. Roasted barley, light roast coffee, scorched sugar and cocoa nib. Finishes with touches of earthy and piney hop resin.

Mouthfeel
Medium-plus bodied, creamy, silky and smooth.

Overall
Tastes like goddamned Christmas! A really festive tasting stout.

Pours deep brown/black with a medium mocha head. Aroma has notes of cinnamon, creme brulee, and vanilla...could definitely pass for egg nog! Flavor is roasty/burnt with cinnamon, bitter dark chocolate, and creme brulee notes. Mouthfeel is light/medium and the finish is roasty cinnamon and dark chocolate.
