Bottle shared by Dan at the Pig. Poured into snifters. Mostly black with a thin off-white head. Aroma of gingerbread, other "cookie" spices, roasted nuts, and bread. The taste was very much the flavor of gingerbread but the body was very light. A novel beer but not really my favorite.

Bomber from Secret Santa. Thanks! Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of ginger, other spices, mild roast. The taste is strong ginger, almost spicy, and mild roast, Medium bodied. Solid, but a little off-balance. Slight booze.

Draft - Clove, ginger and cinnamon. Jet black with a thin head. Molasses, clove and ginger with a roast finish. Sweet and spicy, but a bit over the top for my tastes.

Tap at Candelaris and brewery. What a treat, beautiful bouqet of warming spices. Upfront silky texture with a luxurious quality. Like driving a Bentley with my tongue. Ginger stands out, just enough, balances with brown sugar, all spice, nutmeg and faint yeastyness. Folds nicely into a sweetness that is expected and desired. Coffe undertones suggest bitterness and hints of cocoa with traces of vanilla. A solid brew guys!

Black pour with a persistent light khaki head. The aroma is deep and absolutely wonderful, like chocolate chip ginger snap cookie dough. The taste, however, has far too much spice--loads of ginger and allspice, though with a nice calm sweetness of chocolate, roast, molasses, and bitter herbal tones. Wish it had less spice.

Wax bottle. Wow, is this ever about the gingerbread! Boozy and full bodied, and although I like gingerbread the spices get a bit overwhelming.

Phatdog1 (179) - Brentwood, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Wax topped bottle compliments of TJ. Aroma of gingerbread house, cookies and some other Holiday spices mingled in. Flavor was almost overwhelming ginger. I was left searching for the stout and hoping for a more subtle ginger. A bit flimsy on the mouthfeel. Glad I got to try it, but not my style...

22 oz bottle. Black with a decent sized beige head. Aroma is of chocolate, gingerbread, and roasted malts. Taste is of gingerbread, dark chocolate, roasted malts, molasses, and light coffee notes.

travita (3836) - Frisco, Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle. The look is brownish black, tan head, and dark. The smell is gingerbread, malt, dessert, sweet, and brown sugar. The taste is sweet, spiced, malt, dessert, and ginger.
