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.

DuffMan (7624) - 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!

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 I’d 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 (864) - 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

jimhilt (2457) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 13, 2013
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 Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

kambei70 (762) - - JAN 13, 2013
Pours dark brown to black with very little dark khaki head. Smell is gingerbread, clove, nutmeg and malt. Taste is gingerbread, nutmeg, clove, with some coffee in the end. Not enough sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium thick. Okay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Pours brown/black with a small-ish head. Aroma of gingersnaps, earth, licorice, acidic coffee, and toffee. Flavors follow similar suit with gentle stout notes and abundant spicing: so lots of gingersnap flavor, and some background earth, coffee, dark chocolate and general roastiness. slight sweetness is noticeable as it warms. Finishes a little tangy with an astringent aftertaste and flavors of ginger, licorice, bad coffee, and dark chocolate. Not too bitter. Medium-heavy bodied with a prickly carbonation and a hollow mouthfeel, it’s not the smoothest beer. I honestly thought I would like this more than I do, but nothing seems to come together clearly and the astringent (or acidic or tangy) type of flavors put me off. Oh well.

Beerenberger (1563) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Aroma of spice - cloves and yes gingerbread. Pours a deep dark black with a mostly diminishing tan head which turns into a tan ring. The taste is similar to the nose - mildly sweet. Ginger bread and the appropriate spices. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, very nice and enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
