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.

Bottle. Deep brown almost black. Nice big, brown foamy head that quickly disappears. Aroma is gingerbread. Taste is also gingerbread sweet. Almost too sweet. Very light notes of chocolate and cinnamon.

dyetube (1326) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Bottle from Choice Beverages in McKinney. Pours black with a thin tan head. The aromas are gingerbread, cinnamon, chocolate, coffee. The mouthfeel is dry, roasty and warming with a heavy body and low carbonation. This was a solid beer. Cheers!

Dark pour, dark brown head... coffee-esque in appearance. Aroma is pumpkin- and gingerbread-y. Very nice gingerbread spice, cinnamon, and caramel flavor. Yumm! Very nice mouthfeel.

A very nice stout. Pours a beautiful thick black with a brown head. Smells a bit like gingerbread. Taste is very milk stout, starts creamy and sweet, with a bit of gingerbread coming in at the finish. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Onslow (1264) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Pour from a 22oz bomber. Inky dark brew with small tan head. Aroma of ginger, sweet malt, nutmeg, other spices. Taste is sweet up front with lots of ginger and mulling spices. Finishes a little dry with (surprise!) a lot of ginger. Really solid seasonal with all the trimmings, though a bit heavy on the spice, especially ginger. (Nuthing wrong with Ginger but I like Mary Ann.)

Barreras (1258) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Pours a deep brown color with a distinct ginger spice aroma. Taste is a rich malr flavor with a sweet gingerbread cookie flavor. Roasted malt is evident and a good mix with the mild gingerbread and cinnamon flavor.

Black,thick tan head,lacing. Smelled of pumpkin spices at first,cinnamon and nutmeg stick out more. Not liking the taste of this fairly cold so far,has some astringecy with acidic and saltiness as well.Its smooth somewhat sweet chocolatly,with a diet vanilla cola tone to it.Some roastyness in finish with a not so good taste left in your mouth,kind of diety fake sugar thing. There is some good flavors in this but,the finish is bad.It could be some harsh hard hitting clove/cinnomon astringency. Its worth trying once but not one of the small batch series that I like. It is a bit cloyingly sweet and has a cloying extract/spice flavor. I guess I think its a bit overspiced,so maybe this would be ok or better aged. If I were to pick up another,which I most likely wont,I would at least try to age it-something tells me it wouldnt be much better really though.

At yardhouse in Honululu. Black with some ruby highlights. Light tan head. Served a bit cold but once warmed up, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, orange peel, and subtle ginger bread. Taste is pretty much the same, except ginger bread is much more obvious. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Spice is the right amount and ABV is well hidden. Good RIS

[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.
