gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Kind of sounds more serious that it tastes or looks. Pours a nice dark brown with a frothy white head. Very tasty with a nutty vanilla. Spices are not overwhelming and I could just give the standard nutmeg and cinnamon answer but not so sure about that as something just tastes a bit different. Full bodied with some carbonation. This is very drinkable it is not a “winter warmer”.

trapped (984) - New York City, TURKEY - FEB 17, 2015
Draught @ Ginger Man. Deep brown with small foamy tan head, coffee aroma, low carbonation, ginger flavored coffee taste, thin body, longish finish with coffee aftertaste.

Mep3222 (663) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Aroma of smokey roasted malt and a molasses like coffee as well. Taste is the same with a bit of a spiciness to the finish. Lots of flavor, some odd, but nothing bad about this beer. Just some odd flavors and not sure they all go together, so can't bump the rating up. Makes me think smokey Porter with spicy finish if that is your thing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ferris (6307) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 5, 2015
Draft - Ginger, clove and roast. Jet black with a light brown head. Tons of ginger with a bit of toasted malts. Ginger overwhelms but if you like ginger it is pretty nice.

JStax (3346) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Draft pour at the source. Pours a darker brown to black with a beige head of foam. The arom has dry, herbal, earthy spice. Mild roast. Taste is strong on the spice and light on roast. Decent, but I think the ginger is more of a distraction than anything else. Medium body and medium carbonation.

DiarmaidBHK (3597) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Sampler at brewpub. Pours black with a khaki head. I love how they put Harry Magill’s name in real small type on the sign. Not a lot on the nose. Solid molasses and brown sugar notes on the tongue. Not sure I’m getting a lot of coffee notes. Finished clean. Solid.

Thanks SJ. Nice notes of warming ginger, spice, moleasses and nut meg. Body was medium, with a sweet / spice finish. Not bad.
