Good job with delivering an advertised flavor. Too often a beer is sold on a flavor and doesnít come through. Not here, itís a stout that has a gingerbread flavor. If you you donít like stouts or gingerbread stay away. The availability is great, but doesnít sway score. Great offering from Sam.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
