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.

3/8/13. 22oz bottle from Warehouse ages ago. Rich black pour, maybe some browns and reds under the light, with a nice tan head that cuts in half but coats the glass. Huge cinnamon aroma with bits of ginger, nutmeg, all-spice, molasses, etc. Not my cup of tea. I hate spiced beers. However. Boom. The flavor is... weirdly dead on. Spiced ginger, cinnamon, Christmas spices, burnt molasses, and more pretty dead on gingerbread aspects with a touch of roast. Meh aroma, good flavor. Yum.

Batch 1 Black pour with a thin beige creamy head and light sticky lacing .... Aroma of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove with some dark chocolate .... Taste of mostly ginger, clove, nutmeg and cinnamon with a nice spicy roasted chocolate has a bitter bite ..... Body is thinner and way too spicy. ... Not feeling the gingerbread aspect too much or the beer

bottle - Near black pour, smells of ginger, roast malt, and spices. The flavor is sweet with ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon apparent. Itís full bodied and finishes with roast malt and spice lingering on the palate. Interesting and good.

Black with a tan head. Aroma definitely has similarities to gingerbread, hints of sweetness and spice together. Flavor is similar, but it gets a little confused. Thereís the gingerbread combined with roasted malt and an overwhelming sweetness in the finish. Itís interesting, but I donít love it.

A nice black body with a brown head. Which was about 2 fingers thick, but faded away quickly, leaving little retention and lace. Aroma had a nice bittersweet cocoa malt presence upfront. nice hints of roasted malts and nice gingerbread spices in the background. Initial flavor was sweet, mostly from bittersweet chocolate notes, Some nice roasted malt notes balanced out the sweetness. Finishing with a nice form ginger flavor, Some nutmeg was present but the ginger flavor really came through. Smooth and creamy finish.

Super dark pour. Smells sweet, floral. First drink is almost too sweet but it levels out. Sits heavy in your stomach. Tastes awesome

Daaaark pour, smells like ginger bread, spices and everything Christmas. First taste tosses your pallet around, second sip you really get the ginger bread flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle thanks to PiKapp327. Interesting aroma. I'm not really a fan of gingerbread and this has A LOT. Doesn't look too bad, though.
