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.

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...

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.

was not a bad stout, but the spices were too up front and kinda trampled everything else about it. decent not great though.

madvike (2905) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Bottle - Pours black with a tan ring of head. Lots of ginger on the nose, with some close and...well, really not much else. Taste is the same--lots of ginger and close, with some cinnamon notes and, well, I guess some stout under there. Holy balls, it’s like someone dumped a bottle of ginger in a stout. Pretty thin, with limp carbonation. Baffled at the high ratings on this one. I felt it was a ginger bomb.

Wow, i was hesitant on paying the $13.00 price tag for this at first but glad i did; strong aromas of Gingerbread, chocolate texture, pours solid black with a small cocoa colored malty head. Very pleased with this offering from buffalo bayou.
