12oz can poured into a snifter, canned 11/9/15

A- pours a deep brown color with a small fizzy off-white head that reduces to a ring around the edge

S- spicy ginger, cinnamon & nutmeg aroma mixes with a chocolaty malt sweetness, giving notes of fruit cake, orange peel & brown sugar

T- plenty of holiday spicing up front with an emphasis on ginger & cinnamon, followed by some citrus peel and brown malts. Light cocoa nib sweetness before finishing with more spices

M- medium body with moderate-low carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that continues into the finish

O- a nice holiday ale that has plenty of spicing, but the abv helps hold up with he bold ginger flavors

Fair amount of spiciness, which might limit its drinkability but in a good way! Quite tasty of a beer. Probably wouldn't have more than one in one sitting though. May consider ordering again

I appreciate what Karbach has done here, but this one's just not really for me. It's coffee-dark with assertive cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice smell and flavor. Borderline too sweet. I'm not totally averse to heavily spiced brews, this just doesn't jive with my palate too well. Had one of the four-pack and gave the others to my buddy who loves it.
