The third of the three beers that will be just ONE DOLLAR at Roche's Tree Trim Party (happening tomorrow at Iron Horse Tap Room. Click here for all the details) is Sam Adams' newest winter brew and it's getting rave reviews.
Look-black with a finger and a half of dark foam.
Smell-i can smell the gingerbread spice before I bring it up to my nose. Close to the nose the cinnamon is prominent along the cloves.
Taste-Sharp ginger and cinnamon on the lips. Cloves in the mouth.
Mouthfeel- medium to heavy bodied. Nutmeg smooths out the finish
Overall-i would have preferred a sweeter finish but this is a good stout with a spicy twist.
