3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Shared 22 oz. bottle. Pours almost black with a tan head that rapidly recedes to a thin film. Taste and aroma are surprisingly enough.....gingerbread. Maybe a bit of roasted malt coming through, but this is all gingerbread. Ginger, nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon. It’s as advertised, but the spices are too heavy for my tastes.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma: all gingerbread without any other beer characteristics; Appearance: pitch black with fizzy white head that dissipates quickly; Taste: lots of gingerbread with some underlying malt, verging on overwhelming; Palate: heavy bodied with long, ginger finish with slightly unpleasant taste; Overall: a small glass would be welcome but anything over 3-4 oz is too much; would not buy again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours very dark brown, almost black, with a bit of tan foam. Just a hint of red around the edges if held up to a bright light. Aroma is roasty with a strong spicy smell - gingersnaps. Taste is in-your-face ginger, a bit too much if you as me, with roasted coffee flavors. Good stuff, but tone down the ginger please.

Pours a dark brown almost black like oil with the same type of viscosity. Gingerbread, cinnamon, and spices on the nose; follows onto the palate. Somewhat of a sweet finish.
