ClassyBeagle (319) - USA - DEC 1, 2013
FROM NOTES: October 16, ’13. Poured from a 22 oz. bomber into a snifter. A: HOLY gingerbread, Batman! More gingerbread flavors and nutmeg with a hint of pine and some toasted malt. A: Pours almost black with a two finger tan head. T: Follows the nose with gingerbread flavors, then some roasted malt notes, along with chocolate, coffee, toasted malts. HUGE cinnamon and spice flavors leave it a bit unbalanced, but still fairly enjoyable. P: A smooth, medium to full body with a low carbonation, but not under carbonated at all. O: I enjoyed this beer but the extremely strong spice makes one or two for the holiday season plenty for me.

Extra from Cloaker-thanks! Fairly thick pour. Not oily thick, but opaque and black brown-looks nice. Lots of gingerbread spice on the nose, mostly clove, some nutmeg. Taste follows but also some dark roast stout elements to carry it. Should note this is about a year old, so the spice isn’t screaming. Not my thing, but the spicing is tolerable here and overall it’s better than I thought. Pumpkinator folks would love this.

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - DEC 3, 2014
Aroma of gingerbread, and cinnamon. A dark brown pour with a quickly disapearing tan head and little lacing preceed a taste that is dominated by spice - cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves leap to the front. Hints of rosted malts and alcohol are also present with a lingering gingerbread aftertaste. Medium body and medium carbonation. Slight burn in the mouthfeel. Overall, initially the impact of the gingerbread spice seemed overwhelming, but the more I drank the better the beer tasted. Would have perfered a smoother mouthfeel versus the brun. basement aromas,

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours near black with a beige head. Aroma of spices, roasted malts, light notes of vanilla, some chocolate, hints of dough, and hints of bitterness. Flavor the same with a pretty nice blend of everything. Average texture. A cool stout.

hopscotch (9520) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle... Pours black with a small, creamy, off-white head. The aroma is every bit as good as that of Hardywood’s Gingerbread Stout – ginger snaps in a big way. Medium-bodied and oily with gentle carbonation. The flavor is dark, singed and bittersweet with a generous measure of gingerbread goodness. Carbonic, burnt, ginger snap finish. I’m impressed. Bottle shipped my way by Rosebud butternuts!

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Smells like a ginger snap but better. Some chocolate in the aroma as well as a little alcohol. Tastes like an alcoholic gingerbread cookie. Warming finish. Much better cold. Don’t let it warm too much.

Fritz123 (1123) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2014
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.

Ferris (4998) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 1, 2014
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.
