COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 itís the intensity and spices of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, & ginger that add a wicked kick for a jolly playful brew full of merry mischief.

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. Iíll 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.

Bottle to snifter during a drinking game. Probably not my smartest idea. Dark black pour with a foamy milk chocolate head that reduces to a splotchy lace on the glass. Aroma of juniper and Christmas spice. Taste is gingerbread with a cup of black coffee. Generous use of bittering hops keeps this from being too sweet. Very enjoyable but sometimes the sip tastes artificially flavored. Would definitely have again.

It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of dark roasted grain, some chocolate and gingerbread spices. The taste was similar to the aroma with a light sweetness. It had a medium to heavy mouthfeel with some carbonation. Overall, it was very tasty with a decent mouthfeel that seemed a bit thin. Decent.

Bottle pours broken small head. Smells of spices ginger nutmeg clove roasty. It was awesome smell but the spice just so much to me. It was good if you like gingerbread but me I donít so the taste was bit nasty Iíd never buy it again but I can see why someone would like it.

Definitely good stuff for the winter. Aroma of gingerbread spices and sweet malts. Typical sweet taste of a stout. Delicious and 9% abv. Canít ask for much more.
