On tap at eccentric cafe. Pure black pour with thin brown head, no lacing. Sour rubber and chocolate scent, a little Indian spice as well like garam masala. Medium mouth feel. Bright sweet taste at first, nutmeg and spices are evident. Mellows out to roasted flavor with some cola finish.

A good stout overall. Pours a deep black with a tan head. Smells of ginger, pepper and caramel. Taste is very herby, with more ginger, caramel and pepper in the finish. Had on tap at Green Dragon.

jhliesen (818) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Draft at WOB--black to dark brown color with a small head that leaves a good portion of lacing. Large aroma of coffee. Taste of cocoa, sugar, malt and maybe maple, could be from the sugar. After a while, the drink warms and you can taste the ginger, especially on the finish as it helps to knock down the bitter roast.

Homer321 (4177) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2016
Draft. Nose is moderate to high ginger with a coffee presence. Overly roasted aroma like burnt coffee. Moderate green pepper aroma. Not inviting. Pitch black with minimal head. Taste is very floral like potpourri, ginger. Not much maple or molasses. Maybe a touch earthy. Kind if a muddled mess honestly.

phaleslu (9310) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2016
Draft at Cappyís, served in a flight. This is one Iíd been intrigued by for a long time after seeing the picture of the old bottle, but never expected to see. Fun to see it on draft again after all these years. Anyway, it pours a deep brown with amber highlights and a small khaki head that settles into a ring and film, leaving trailing lace in the glass. Notes of toasted sugar, cocoa, roasted malts, nutmeg, earth, tobacco, maple, ginger, and molasses. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a roasty, spicy, sweet mouthfeel that also hits the umami notes. Not sure it should be in the S/H/V category, honestly, but deserves stout categorization.

Draft to snifter from Cappyís pours opaque black with thin tan head. Nose interesting cinnamon ginger Chai spice, light earthy, and some chocolate. Taste good spice up front, cinnamon, then light chocolate. Nice flavor progression.

douglas88 (8332) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 25, 2016
On tap at abv. Pours a pure black color with a medium beige head. A big spicy cherry nose. The flavor is big sweet berries, licorice, chocolate, some roast. The spices come across as almost sour cherry pits. Solid.

CanIHave4Beers (3999) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - FEB 25, 2016
On Draught
Pours a dark brown with a mahogany hue when held up to the light. The head is respectable as is the lace.

The aroma is roasty with some ginger and potpourri. Itís got a nice coffee like character and a light sweetness.

The flavor is nicely bitter & roasty with some coffee like flavors and some vanilla. The ginger is pretty dominant really and the beer comes off a touch boozy, but itís tasty for sure.

Sample at Bellís on 1/28/16. Pours darkest brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of malt, ginger, cinnamon and roast. Malty flavor with ginger and cinnamon before a roasty finish.

Drink warm. Cocoa powder forward, blended with cinnamon, nutmeg, molasses and a sharp, sweet ginger finish. Toasted grains throughout. Medium bodied.
