This rich dark gingerbread stout entices with the aromas of the holidays. The flavor of gingerbread comes alive, beginning with the smooth sweetness and heartiness of dark roasted malts and a touch of wheat. But it’s the intensity and spices of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, & ginger that add a wicked kick for a jolly playful brew full of merry mischief.

Bottle shared with Jim and Lauren. Pours a deep black with a thin beige to tan head. Good amount of spices on the nose. Spicy, cinnamon and toast initially. Not so much gingerbread as just straight up ginger. Spicy roast, cocoa, chocolate. Interesting. If this was marketed as a ginger stout I’d have been more impressed as it would be spot on for what was advertised. Instead it falls a little short but it’s still a neat beer.

Pours a deep reddish black. Aroma of nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste is nutty and malty sweet with the dry finish of a stout. Nicely balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, poured a very dark brown with full frothy head. Aroma is nutmeg, almost to the point where it reminds me of a pumpkin beer, also some ginger, and some cinnamon, cocoa. Taste is roasted maltiness with clove spice and some ginger and nutmeg. Medium-heavy body. Warming alchohol.

Pours dark with little head. Smells like heavy ginger and cinnamon. Mouthfeel more like a porter with heavy ginger-nutmeg-cinnamon. Flavors hit what theyre going for. Tastes like X-mas. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught. Black pour, lots of licorice anise etc, even though it says ginger cinnamon, OK but too spicy/herby and not enough malts oomph to finish.

Was hoping for a lot more out of this beer. Black pour with a medium sized tan head. Minimal lacing. Aroma of gingerbread is there, but the flavor tasted like they emptied the spice cabinet a little too much. Overpowering on the cloves and ginger taste. Too much for me. I’ll pass on this one.

22oz bottle, batch 1, mostly to myself. Black color, good thick lighter brown head. Decent / respectable lace. Really nice nose - definitely gingerbread. Medium to bigger body. Kind of a milky / creamy texture. Light carbonation, more dry. Bitter taste, little sweet, little bite. Love the rich, cake-like aroma in this. Very reminiscent of a gingerbread cookie. Some vanilla. Sweet aftertaste. Really interesting and unique beer.

Pours turbid black with tan head. Nose is gingerbread, roasty dark patent malt, cinnamon. Tastes spicy, with cinnamon, nutmeg, gingerbread, cacao, and a rich finish. Not a great flavor here, but a unique holiday beer.

Black pour with a brown head. Aroma is dominated by the spices- ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. Roasted malt is in the back. Taste is very nice- ginger is dominant but well balnced by the other spices and the roasted malt. A very festive tasty stout. Bah humbug to the holidays, thumbs up to this beer.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with effectively no head. Great little gingerbread smell to this - definitely reminds me of Christmas. Little bit of spices to the taste.
