An imperial milk stout with fresh local ginger and honey, this beer is like the winter holidays in a glass, loaded with warm pie spice, milk chocolate, toasted bread, caramel malt and vanilla bean notes throughout the nose and mouth. It's velvety and mouthfilling on the palate, rounded by flavors of banana bread, sweet-spiced oatmeal, toasted pie crust, fresh nutmeg and cinnamon. Ample carbonation helps to keep the flavors lifted, leading through to the dry, spicy finish. It's a well-balanced selection that can easily replace that holiday dessert and be just as satisfying.
