Zauber Xmas Ale (8/10)

Zauber Brewing on Fifth Avenue in Grandview has released their first Christmas beer.

This 8.7% ABV ale pours almost black.  With enough light it's a dark mahogany.  There's a thin off white head that lingers a minute or two and leaves behind minimal lacing.

Aroma is malty, roasty, and nutty. 

The flavor starts malty, slightly sweet, and had elements of dark roasted malt.  I get a bit of ginger in there. Sweetness and hops bitterness balance out well. A very nice beer. 

I give it a solid 8 out of 10.

In addition to Zauber's taproom, I've also seen it at The Pint Room in Dublin.

ABV: 8.7%
IBU: 35
My Rating: 8/10
