Looks similar to a recipe called "christmas in belgium" (use the search button) that is getting racked to secondary later today.

Half a teaspoon of ginger seems small. I grated 6 oz in another holiday beer of mine.

The molasses might leave too much of a sweet aftertaste. I would nix that and bump the candi sugar to a full pound.
