Originally reviewed on: 02-01-2009...

First crack at a new offering from the Smutty crew. 22 oz. into the trusty Ommegang chalice.

Excellent gingerbread/molasses body color but the head is very thin and takes off pretty quickly. Next pour doesn't show a lot of improvement to the faint ginger topping. Slight cloudiness at first blush.

Very mild - lots of molasses, slight bourbon booziness...even a little chocolate. Not a huge amount of hoppiness - just a trace of pine. Quiet yeast electricity.

This is solid and straightforward. The usual BSDA suspects are there. Sweet, mildly syrupy booziness layered with raisins, dates and the omnipotent molasses. Mild clovish spice puts a little spring in its step. Carbonation is present but subtle.

Velvety thickness, and this one is quite smooth. Coats the palate with warming sweetness (not overdone, though). Long, powerful finish.

Good for a sipper on a cold winter day indoors. Nightcap material through and through. Smutty really hasn't disappointed me yet. Keep up the great work.

Serving type: bottle

Price: $5.00 Served In: Pint Glass
