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 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.

October 6, 2013 - bottle shared by Brandon. Dark brown pour with tan head that faded quickly. Aroma was strong clove and cinnamon. Taste was consistent with aroma, but also had some roasted malt. This was a year old, so could be a case where it is better fresh.

Opaque black beer with a big tan head. Airy palate with fine carbonation. Quite light. Rich cake flavours here! Ginger cake and Golden Syrup cake! Mild minerals. Just a touch of dark malts in the background. Slight lactose. Not bad at all but couldn’t drink loads.

Pours very dark brown body, almost black, with a thick, tan head. Foam lasted nicely, leaving some lace ribbons down the side of the glass. Smell has a nice opening shot of gingerbread, and other spices. Roasted, dark malts with some sweetness, nice Christmas spiciness. Taste is one of a classic sweet stout to start. Solid, toasted malt base, the come the extra flavors of gingerbread, dark chocolate or cocoa, molasses. Medium bodied mouthfeel, low to medium carbonation, smooth and creamy. A unique spice blend, gingerbread definatley comes through. Might be a bit too much if one were to consume the entire bottle - but works great to share. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

marcus (8903) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Bottle from BevMo, Sacramento. Pours dark brown with a decent tan ead and a ginger and treacle aroma. There is a medium-bodied dark molasses flavor with modest ginger flavoring. The spices are appropriate rather than overwhelming.

kseecs16 (1215) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours an opaque dark brown with a creamy tan head that leaves sporadic lacing down the glass. Aroma is potent ginger bread, rich, spicy. Full flavored, rich clove sweetness and ginger in the finish. Dry roasty, nutty.

Pretty nice beer. Pours a thinner then expected black pour with beige head. Aroma is gingerbread cookies, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cocoa. Taste is lightly sweet up front with a medium sweet finish. I like it.

On tap at the bocktown, nice place. Nice black pour with a choco moose head. Has an alarmingly clovey or gingerbread aroma, makes me nervous about tasting it. My expectations are not unture, the first taste is pice spices fer sure. Yes, gingerbread so strong its like cloves. Nasty nellie. Why put spices in beer I don’t know. Not impressed. Just like most december holiday brews, over spiced and over the top. I’d rather drink a SA cranberry lambic.

Black pour. Tan head. Lacing. Smells like chocolate pumpkin pie. Tastes close to the same with molasses added in. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Pours black with a brown frothy head. Aroma is nutmeg, molasses and roasted malt. Thick in body and maybe a bit sticky. Flavor is a wonderful combination of actual gingerbread flavors (nutmeg, clove, molasses) and a very nice stout. Finish is sweet with a lot of darker today flavors lingering.
