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.

A: Nice gingerbread aroma. Cinnamon. A little chocolate in there. A: Looks amazing. Pours dark dark brown. Head retention is killer. Looks creamy and tan. T: Taste the gingerbread for sure. A bit of chocolate note. Alcohol gives some good warmth. Well balanced with the gingerbread not overwhelming. P: Heavy body. Boozy. smooth. Nice gingerbread flavor. This is an amazing stout. A really great balance between the gingerbread and the other stout flavors. A must try. Mmmm... as it warms it tastes like coca cola.... Not so good warm so finish it while itís cold!

Poured into a snifter. 4.0 A: Black color. Two fingers of frothy/creamy tan head. Retention is good and a half inch ring of lacing is left. 3.0 S: Roasty and chocolate maltiness. The spices are there, but are lacking in strength. Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, clove. Itís not bad, but it doesnít please the way this type of beer should. 3.25 T: Like the nose, itís not bad, but itís underwhelming and no better than average. Chocolate, brown sugar, molasses, and a hefty roastiness. Spices are again underwhelming. 3.75 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and super smooth. 3.25 D: Not bad, but for a $7-8 bomber, I expect a better product. ★ 664 characters DavoleBomb, Dec 25, 2013

Bomber into a pint glass. pours black , with a medium tan head that lasts. decent lacing. Nose is ginger, cinnamon, and allspice. Taste follows the nose, with a slightly bitter hop finish. Very nice.

Maxbier (707) - Maryland, USA - APR 30, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2015 Very dark with foamy brown head. Aroma is boozy and chocolaty, initially it is reminiscent of barrel aged brandy followed with hints of gingerbread. Flavor is intense gingerbread upfront but not remotely sweet. Dark chocolate slightly boozy finish. Not great if itís too cold so donít over chill it. Tasty with a cookie or ten. ---Very tasty but I think it contains Zolpidem, it put me to sleep and I never got a chance to finish the bottle.

Old rating. Kinda boring big spiced beer. Medium bready body. Usual spices (clove, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg)...maybe slightly over spiced. Creamy body.

Palate was that of full body, creamy, average carbonation. Nice taste hints of cinnamon, and spice with a full bitter finish. The aroma could have been more pronounced.

Reading all the reviews on this brew, I was really looking forward to it when I couldnít get a local gingerbread brew from Berkeley. I honestly wasnít too impressed with it - The alcohol content very much overwhelms a lot of the flavor in it and itís much more bitter than most stouts Iíve had. I clearly must have a bad palette for stouts here since everyone else enjoys it :(

Pint 6 bottle shared. Poured a dark brown to almost black with mocha head. The aroma is of roasted malts and ginger snaps. The flavor I liked a lot plenty of roasted malts and lots of ginger snaps. Nicely blended all the way around. Overall if you like ginger snaps and nutmeg this is a good beer.

750 ml bottle from Costco. Nose is definitely gingerbread with cinnamon and hints of bubblegum and chocolate. Black with a medium dark cinnamon tan head. Flavor is lightly sweet and gingerbread spicy with a hint of bitter.

Pours black with a beige head. Aroma has lots of spice (nutmeg, cinnamon, clove), some chocolate, toffee, and bread. Taste is more of the same spices, lots of chocolate and coffee roastiness, and slight cola. Nice med-full body, smooth carbonation.
