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

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.

chinchill (1630) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 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 body and carbonation; lively; enough ginger to add to the feel. O: good but may improve with a little aging.

Derek881 (997) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2014
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.

Beerenberger (1373) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JAN 6, 2014
There’s a gingerbread man sitting on my nose. It pours a dark brown like a gingerbread man which has been left in th oven too long, with a mostly deminishing white head and a smidgen of lacing. The gingerbread man is accompanied by his friends, toasted malts, bread, and a rewarding hop finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, a nice winter drink - a pumpkin beer without the pumpkin. Thanks to Ken for the treat.

12oz bottle from ABC on Apalachee. Deep dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon. Tastes are ginger/nutmeg and roasty, chocolate - slight smoke vibe. Lightly bitter, spice finish.

Pours a brown color with a brown head. Nose is strong ginger. Taste is sweet ginger and malty. Finishes on the same tasting notes with some mild lingering. An ok ale at best. Quaff Score 7 / 10
