Pours dark brown with a tan head. Gingerbread and nutmeg aromas. Similar flavors with coffee, chocolate, and roasted grain notes. Medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is a little thin. The finish is spicy with a little residual hop bitterness that lingers in the aftertaste.

12oz bottle. Poured a medium brown, almost cola-like color with a small off-white head. Aroma was some light spices and sweet malt characters, some light ginger notes. Flavor is cocoa, toasted malts, and some thin notes of gingerbread. A bit disappointing.

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.

This rich dark brown ale has a strong ginger aroma and cinnamon flavor. Very interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
