750 ml, caged and corked bottle from the brewery. This beer has the aroma and flavor of Christmas. The ginger comes through in the aroma along with some roasty malty goodness. It pours a dark ruby color with a nice lasting head. The taste is fantasit with notes of gingerbread, chocolate, caramel and toffee. The finish is nice and warming with a slight spiciness to it.

Bottle from Joe. Thanks! Pours dark brown to black with a massive khaki brown head that sticks around a good bit. Flavor is light roast that bursts into a big punch of gingerbread cookie, but not overly spicy at all, nice light sweetness on the finish balances things well. Body is on the thinner side for an imperial stout, and it would be really nice to see this thickened up with some chocolate to support the nice spice. That would be delicious. As is, it is very yummy and highlights the shizz out of the gingerbread cookieness without being just ginger spice. Nicely done, but give this some rich heft and Iíll buy it again. Otherwise, Iíll leave it for everyone else.

Wine bottle, tulip. Robust tan head from robust pour. Aroma of ginger and brown sugar. Some peppermint. Flavor ginger, bitter cocoa, condensed milk. So so sweet. In the end more ginger medicine than gingerbread cookie. Not for me. Not horrible.

25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with a creamy balsa head. Nose is toasted coconut morphing into ginger and vanilla with hints of cocoa. As rich as hoped for with a medium to full body and a bright tang. Again I get coconut in the taste but the honey really shines. The ginger adds a nice bite with a touch of molasses and coffee bean ending with bitter cinnamon.
