11.2 oz bottle with no date.
Simple label with candle and holly with berries.

This beer poured a medium to dark mahogany brown color that was hazy to opaque, and seemed to be well carbonated. The head that was created was thick, rich, creamy, sticky, airy and foamy and was the color of butter cream with little specks of nutmeg all throughout (yeast). When first poured it rose like a volcano erupting (even after an easy pour), super sized and long lasting, and when it finally fell it still maintained a nice film on the surface. The lace that was produced was like wet sheets sticking to the glass with noticeable large bubbles. The aromas that came from the glass were of sweet malts, dark sugars, doughy yeast, like bread rising/fermenting, some dark fruits and light spices were noticeable all throughout, but not overpowering. The tastes were more pronounced, some dark malts, sugars and herbs in the beginning, they lasted throughout the sip but a light alcohol flavor became noticeable along with an earthy flavor and some dry leafs as it ended and finished off with a definite yeast/dough flavor. The after taste was on the watery side at first then completed with a dry malt flavor. Light to medium on the body. I noticed allot of sediment at the bottom and all through the glass just swimming around. The ABV of 8% was not really tasted but could be noticed at times. An ok beer, I expected more, not bad but not great. The most impressive part of the experience was the impressive head that was created.
