3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked up a four-pack at Discount Liquors in Waukesha, Wisconsin. Pours a clear cola brown colored brew with a fast dissipating tan head that leaves behind some spotty lacing and a thin beige ring. Aroma of ginger snaps, a hint of chocolate, some nutmeg and mince meat pie filling. Taste is medium to medium-full bodied, more roasted chocolate malt in flavor than aroma. Additional flavors of ginger, cocoa nibs and some clove. Finish has a mild ginger bite followed by some roasted chocolate malt aftertaste.

This one should come with a warning: Do not drink a pint! This is a sampler or small snifter beer. The chocolate-ginger combination can become too much of a good thing. I like it but I like it most when drinking a few ounces.

Sampled from the tap at Winter Dabbler. Pours near black with a creamy brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of ginger coming through with sweet dark grains and chocolate coming through. Flavor is similar with dark grains, sweet chocolate and a bit of ginger.

12 oz. bottle pours a dark brown with small but lasting beige head. Aroma is full of ginger with some mint chocolate and vanilla. Taste is sweet, with some roastiness coming out in the flavor as it warms up. Body is medium with slight carbonation and an almost sticky mouthfeel. This is a great dessert, in liquid form.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
3/7/15 (Bottle) - Nice dark brown / black pour with solid pillow tan head. Ginger, malt, chocolate, vanilla and sage among the wonderful aromas emanating from the pour. Very sweet,taste, thin texture with minimal carbonation. This is a nice drink to pair with dessert or to cap off a meal, with a decent kick. I typically do not like sweet beers but this is an exception, because of the quality, taste and abv. One of my favorite 3 Sheeps offerings!

[Tap] 2013 vintage. Nearly black in color with a silky head. Aromas of chocolate, ginger root and anise. The taste is very ginger forward. Herbal hops, mint, chocolate, sticky toffee, clove and a nice roasty character blend well with the ginger. Low carbonation levels. I was really happy with this one, even though I am not a huge fan of ginger flavoring in beers. Tasting notes from Big Blue Craft Beer Festival in Sheboygan on 10/18/14.

Bottle from Woodmans in Waukesha. Pours a dark brown with reddish hints. No lace. Aroma leads with ginger. And follows with ginger. Later some malts show through.Taste is sweet malt, and ginger and other Chinese foods flavors. Stuff would like to eat, but not really drink. Medium bodied without any real distinction. Finishes spicy and tangy, and sweet, but without much length. Interesting idea, but too limited. 13.2

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark chestnut with a big tan head that settles to a persistant ring and leaves great lacing. Aroma is predominately ginger with some cocoa and a slight savoriness as it warms. The ginger is slightly forward in the taste also but combines well with the light chocolate flavor. A moderate roast flavor and bitterness as well as some earthiness. Finishes semi dry with some lingering light ginger and tasty bitter. Mouthfeel is almost slick with medium body and carbonation. A straightforward ginger spiced stout that’s not very complex but has clean flavors that aren’t harsh.
