Nice dark brown color with a small but persistent tan head. The aroma was nice and chocolaty, with hints of roasted bitterness and nutmeg. The flavor had a stronger spice tone to it with nutmeg, cinammon, and ginger kick. The spices seemed out of place here, like they didnít contribute to the overall flavor, but simply sat on top of it. My guess is that the intention was to blend the flavors into one indescribable holiday thingy, but the spices just didnít seem to cooperate. Nice overall stout with an interesting flavor.

Black brew with a creamy tan head. There is something strange going on here. Iím not sure if itís the ginger or what but something is throwing this brew off.As it warms Iím starting to get the mentholatum that others mentioned. Very odd brew.

Mentho-Lyptus. If youíre really into spiced beers, this is a good one for you--a big roasty stout with added flavors of ginger and menthol. If youíre not into spicy beer--and Iím generally not--avoid this one.

cardamon & cinnamon in the nose. Dark brown w/ a nice tan head. Nice spicy upfront taste w/ a smooth finish. a very enjoyable beer. I think it would be great w/ spicy food

A good beer, but not as stouty as I would like. They seem to have neglected the "stout" part of the "spiced stout" equation. The spice did not blend with the stout so much as subvert it. These seasonal bells are good, but each seems to be slightly off. A near miss.

Dark brown/mohagany color with a smallish light tan head. Aroma of allspice with just a hint of malt. Sharp spice up front with lingers of cinnamon and nutmeg. Dark malts in the background with a touch of peat dryness.

This was a ginger stout monster. Strong taste of ginger with a hint of nutmeg. This would be a perfect pairing for orintal foods. Not good to have a whole sixer of this though. Get a single.

for a spiced stout this one is pretty good. however i think that there is far too much spice at the begining of the flavour. the palate is very complex. there is a sweet spiciness followed by a smokey or roasted flavour. the colour is nice but head retention was poor and left little to no lacing. i would say it is middle of the road for thickness(an important characteristic of stouts).
