Clear brown color with few activity. Foamy beige 3 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with shy legs, but decent lacing. Flavors of ginger, brown sugar, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon, soft dark grains and hops. Slick and oily medium body with prickly and crispy carbonation. Medium strength finish, cereal and bready, thick candy like sugary feel, with a soft rum sensation. Easily enters the holidays category from dense festive spices, not much else of use. The freshness is alright, it’s quite accessible with minimal harshness left over, plus the alcohol is hidden with a nice warming quality. Although it lacks complexity and refinement. Gets a little weird. Overall below average quality craft.
