Picked this up as a Christmas gift, and shared gift with the happy recipient!

Pour: Dark brown, almost black. Not as thick as expected building a nice head.

Nose: Subtle spices, and mildly hoppy smell. Very pleasant.

Taste: Much lighter taste than the alcohol content would suggest. Definitely a surprise. Lot's of great flavors to discern. Cloves, Cinnamon and nuts.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth, not thick at all, very lively carbonation.

Overall: It really made the perfect Christmas gift. A beer to savior.

This is one of the best beer I ever tasted, at the beginning I was skeptical about the alcohol grade but at the end the flavor is so delicate, is like drinking a 30 year old whisky, love the dark color and excellent carbonation, 2 Thumbs way Up!
