SPDickerman (913) - Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Pours pitch black with a large, creamy, tan head. Smells strongly of ginger with subtle cocoa and bready notes. Taste is exactly like chocolate gingerbread; that really is all that can be said, itís sweet and a touch spicy. Medium-to-full bodied with a velvety texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Buffalo Bayou Gingerbread [Imperial] Stout finishes sweet that fades to ginger spiciness after a while.

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.

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!

Pours jet black with dark brown head. Smells of gingersnaps and dark malts. Taste of gingerbread, biscuits and a hint of cinnamon with a nice light biter aftertaste. Overall this is a smooth flavorful stout that has a bite!!!

Straight gingerbread on the nose, pitch black with small khaki ring for a head. Initial taste is strong gingerbread/cinnamon, dark chocolate on the finish as it warms. Christmas in a bottle ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From deep within the pine rich forrest, the waft of gingerbread lures...actually, it seizes you by the scruff of the neck and hurls you into the candy laden cabin. The witch, proud of her creation, allows you to gaze about...the dark ginger cookie walls, the creamy hot cocoa, the peppermint chandelier...you are intoxicated with temptation and you drink heavily her potion...its smooth spiced chocolate coats your throat and warms you deeply. The bitterness of your fate materialized in liquid form...care not, doomed little one...just enjoy! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle, holy cow this is good. Pour is near black with a tan head that lasted the life of the beer. Aroma was ginger, pumpkin pie, chocolate, fudge, and dark roast. Flavor was pretty much the same with a bit more roast. Body was full with medium carbonation. An unbelievably delicious beer and would love to see how a barrel treats it.

rougeau13 (1940) - Richmond, Texas, USA - FEB 15, 2012
Black with a solid light brown head that laces nicely. Aroma of gingerbread, obviously, cinnamon, chocolate and roast. Taste is sweet gingerbread and chocolate cookies; rich, sweet and dessert-like. Medium-full bodied and creamy.

Mmmm, if their Chai Porter wasnít quite to my liking, this most definitely is. Solid chocolate and roasted malt base with a generous sprinkling of gingerbread spice. Naturally itís a bit sweet so make it a liquid dessert.
