3.87/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

A: Walnut/chestnut brown. 1F tan head.

S: Christmas tree shop. Spiced cinnamon gingerbread.

M: Thinnish body with medium feel. Coarseness and rough from spicing.

T: Full blend of spices. Warm ginger and cloves. Minty taste. Buckwheat, brown sugar molasses, but maintains Bittersweet theme throughout. Not shy on the spices, especially nutmeg. Easy sipper.

I had mixed feelings on this beer. The smell was fab, the feel had a nice heft - I was all geared up for love at first pint...but...the taste was mildly reminiscent of a dentists office novicaine/over cloved oddity. My boyfriend absolutely loved this one (so maybe it was just me) but I kept having flashbacks of the dentists chair while I sipped. Thankfully, this was his glass of beer and I could sip, sip and then move on to something more suited for my finicky beer taste buds. Try it, you might love it - seems to be a winner in general with the other regulars.

Picked up a growler and served on 12.24 to Celebrate the Holiday. Poured into a Dogfish Head Snifter.

Dark mahogany and maple bark with a nice light tan head.

Smells of pine, sweet dark sugar, molasses, gingerbread and nutmeg. Very rich and complex, warming alcohol is present but not out of balance.

Taste is layers of dark chocolate, gingerbread, warm apple pie, pumpkin pie with a nice firm hop bitterness in the finish.

A nice strong seasonal sipper, hopefully this beer will return next holiday season, it is a really concrete recipe. Spices are in balance and complimentary to the malt character. Think a bigger version of Anchor Our Holiday Ale.
