A dose of fresh ginger roots added to the brewkettle creates an intriguing mix of ginger, malt-sweetness , and citruslike aromas and flavors Hoppy dryness is very subdued with ginger-sweet-spicey notes dominating throughout to the very finish.

Bov (12007) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 26, 2016
from Erzbierschof - murky copper-orange beer under a creamy beige foam; fairly expressive aroma of earth, ginger and citrus; creamy palate, sweet and bitter; full-bodied; grainy, earthy and long gingery finish with lingering citrusy notes - ok

DandyWolfFloyd (1090) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Aroma - ginger, alcohol, caramel malt, and spice. Appearance - sepia colored body, cloudy, and unfiltered. The head is about 1/8" and white, and quickly rings out. Taste - big ginger of course, some other spice like nutmeg and clove. Caramel malt stands under the spice. Palate - the body is medium, carbonation is flat, the finish spiced.

Appearance- copper, murky, with a fast-disappearing foamy beige head. Aroma- caramel, malty, brown bread, honey glazed fruits, cherry cake, ginger, hoppy hints, marzipan. Taste- fruitcake, orange peel, almond hints, sugary raisin, the ginger is nicely understated. Hints of cloves, cinnamon and other spices. Nicely balanced and complex ale.

JorgeLee (1802) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2015
Bottle from Hasegawa Liquors. Maybe not the freshest sample. Not quite what I expected, deep dark brown and malty. Heavy caramel malt flavour, spicy ginger and nutmeg, like dark ginger cake. A touch cloying and heavy. Interesting, but not convinced.

Bottle at home, one year past "best before date". Poured a dark golden color with a tempting head. Ginger and citrus as well as christmas cookies aromas. Lightly sweet, very bubbly and yeasty taste. Ok, but must try a clean fresh version.
