Not a bad pour of moderate darkish brown. Zesty nose of some sweetness and moderate spice, some cinnamon and nutmeg. Flavor is similar with more caramel sweetness. Not bad but multiple won’t happen with me.

It doesn’t really taste like gingerbread, but it still has a great dark malty flavor to it that makes it a good beer standing alone.

Bottle from old backlog notes 07. Pours dark brown in color with reddish highlights and a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have mild roasted malt and chocolate with heavier doses of gingerbread cookies and spices,. The body is on the thin side which distracted me a little.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2014 12 oz bottle. Poured very dark brown with a semi-durable beige head. Aroma: excellent balance in a blend of porter and gingerbread. Flavor: not so balanced as the aroma, but richer and with more ginger. Also a touch of spicy hops. Lingering bready malt and ginger flavor. Feel: medium-light body and medium carbonation; lively; enough ginger to add to the feel.

Poured from a regular bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a very dark brown hue with a lighter brown to deep amber hue and a very small, foamy, off-white head with short retention, and minor cling and lacing. The aroma had a notable gingerbread scent, but also tones of chocolate and coffee, some sugar and yeast, and a bit of molasses and grain. Its taste was somewhat sweet with notes of coffee and chocolate, but also a grainy bitterness throughout. The body was mostly wet and thin with low carbonation and a lighter, watery mouthfeel. Thanks to Siobhan for the Christmas present!

Bottle 355ml in Singapore. Very faint ginger aroma, no real ginger flavour, pours dark brown with a thin head. Smooth but not amazing, don’t expect any gingerbread.
