Served in narrow pint glass from the bottle (six pack).

Pour with a large head that quickly dissolved until a thin layer of foam was resting on top of the ale. Color was deep amber. No lace as beer was consumed.

Aroma of toasted malts, nutmeg, and gingerbread.

Slight alcohol taste. Also had hints of gingerbread cookies. Malty aftertaste.

Mouth feel was bold - slightly bitter and lightly carbonated.

Comparable to Great Lakes Christmas Ale, minus the hunt.
