Poured a dark mahogany with a thick cream head. Nose was of sweet roasted malts with a hint of the ginger spice. The flavor was not overpoweringly spicy, however, and the beer was very refreshing and well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours an opaque dark brown with a massive head that laces and retains very well. Nose is like a weak porter with ginger added. Some hint of dark malts is present, but very subdued. The body barely makes it past the light category. Very well carbonated, which helps bring forth what flavor is there. Like the nose, dark malt flavor is subdued resulting in a profile that is mostly ginger. While not overpowering, it is rather mild, the ginger needs to be balanced with a background malt flavor profile. The finish is somewhat crisp with a residual weak ginger astringency. Not a bad beer, but it could be improved upon.

Fine. Not overwhelmingly gingerbread-y. Let’s the beer flavor through with a hint of the spices.

12 oz bottle. Spices present in aroma but it tastes a bit thin. Honestly doesn’t taste very different from most "pumpkin" beers.

Dark brown color with small tan head and minimal lacing. Aroma and flavor have great cocoa malts with slight spicy, ginger notes. Slightly sweet and slightly bitter. Pretty good overall.

Ok. Good ginger bread aroma, followed through in flavor. What I don't like is this is quite thin, and the base beer is not superb. Should've been a stout. B- ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Iphonephan (3015) - McLean, Virginia, USA - NOV 12, 2013
On draft at Galaxy Hut in Arlington VA. Pours a ear cola brown with a tan head. Aroma of cloves and cinnamon. Only a hint of ginger. Light to medium bodied. Short dry finish.

BrettTaylor (450) - Radford, Virginia, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Poured from bottle. Pours a dark brown, 1 finger head which dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is initially ginger and sweetness from the malt, followed by a bit of coffee. Taste is good with a fairly typical porter profile of coffe and chocoloate followed with the ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg. The carbonation is fairly high, but not so much that it is out of style.
