Bottle poured into snifter

Clear copper liquid with active carbonation. Dense off white pencil thick layer with dense bubble lacing.

Aroma of cinnamon, orange, gingerbread

First sip has cinnamon and gingerbread. Hint of cloves. Flavor lingers on the middle of the tongue. Smooth

Good sudsing on the front of the tongue.

Had this beer last year and enjoyed it. Good beer that tastes like....Christmas!
