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.

Pours the deepest brown-black (looks like motor oil) with a very bubbly, fast-diminishing brown head. Aroma is ginger, cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, fruit, brown sugar. Holy wow. Taste is a flavor explosion; licorice, ginger, mint, cloves, some sweetness, and a bitter chocolate finish. Spotty lacing. Medium-high carbonation. This was really interesting. I am so glad I found some bottles of this. Iím going to call this a success. Itís flavorful, itís drinkable, itís pretty strong. I like it.

sthlm (1260) - Duluth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 19, 2013
[Bottle] Pours very dark brown with a nice brown head. Aroma lives up to the deScription, with lots of spice (nutmeg, clove--I actually would have guessed allspice as well if not for the deScription). Very mild ginger. Taste is quite nice, and markedly improves with warming. Spice integrated very nicely. Hit of alcohol early, then becomes well restrained. Medium-thin mouthfeel, smooth, very dry, long finish. Overall, a very nice spiced beer.

Bottle offering into snifter..pretty black color..1.5 finger head after aggressive pour..brownish head..gingerbread aroma is spot on and better than expected..clove..nutmeg are secondary..intriguing smelling beer..reminiscent of some pumpkin offerings as they share similar profiles..mouthfeel is ok..alcohol is well hidden..suprisingly so..palate is smooth, but on the end finish is a bit watery and flimsy..ok..gimmick beer..

Pours black as night with a tan head. Some lacing w/ decent carbonation. Aroma is sweet like cola with clove-like spices. Taste starts with spice, mixing with sweet malt and just the slightest bit of bitterness. Fades with spices (ginger and cinnamon?). Mildly chewy mouthfeel. A solid beer, but I donít really pick up on much in the way of a gingerbread flavor.

DuffMan (8316) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 17, 2013
On tap @ Public House in Vegas. Dark brown stout appearance. Aroma is equally sweetly spicy and smokey-- quite surprising. Surprising malty depth to the palate: dark chocolate, roast, and a meaty smokey Bamberg-esque character all support a balanced amount of Christmas spices (nutmeg, clove, ginger). Moderate bitter finish ends things nicely. Surprisingly excellent!

marv3mania (185) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours almost black with thick brown head that dissipates quickly with minimal lacing. Aroma is sweet, like cola with vanilla. Flavor is similar, with subtle coffee undertones. Not much in the way of gingerbread. Reminds me of flat cola. Thick, creamy feel. An okay beer, not sure Iíd drink it again.

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Poured a dark brown almost black with thick tall head and lots of lacing. I would say this is the sweetest stout I have had to date; the wife even liked it!

n00bface (137) - Minneapolis, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle from South Lyndale Liquors (Minneapolis, Minnesota)
Aroma: Chocolate, caramel, molasses, and cinnamon.
Appearance: An almost-black maroon color with a large tan head.
Taste: Medium sweetness, and a bit salty.
Palate: Full bodied, creamy texture, average carbonation, with a slightly bitter finish.
A good spiced beer, but the aromas and the taste unfortunately did not conjure any images of gingerbread in my mind.

jeremyh70 (925) - Missouri, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Black with ruby highlights. Decent head and lacing. Aroma of ginger, cinnamon and clove. Same in taste with nutmeg and finishes with some coffee. Finishes fairly dry. Liked better than I thought. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a light tan, four-finger head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Jet black color, no highlights. Good carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Ginger and clove nose. Flavor is almost like gingerbread, well balanced, higher ABV is hidden. $7.25 for a 22oz bottle from Tullyís Beer & Wine Wells, Me.
