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.

My boys picked this to let out for Santa this year. Nice choice, it’s a good holiday stout. The gingerbread flavors truly come through. Deep brownish black in color with creamy cocoa colored head. Drink up Santa!

Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Alex. Pours brown with a tan head. In the nose: gingerbread, chocolate and spices. Moderate sweet with touches of ginger, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon and chocolate with mild roasty bitterness. Medium-bodied. Nice beer.

Draft at Crunchy’s (from backlog). Dark brown pour with clove ginger and allspice aromas. Molasses, ginger, and allspice in the flavor. This beer was named well.

Beerenberger (1602) - 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

Bottle tasted at Oxford Tasting Nov 2012. Dark brown pour with a small head. Smells more like allspice than ginger, but wow does it taste like sweetened gingerbread cookies, along with the requisite spices like nutmeg and cinnamon. A bit sweet to drink much of but a tasty take on the style.

lamas (1573) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 29, 2012
22 oz. bottle. Batch #1. A jet-black pour with a thick and creamy chestnut head. Gingerbread cookies! Cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, caramel, a wheaty graininess, and some roasted malts in the aroma. Goes down medium-bodied and rather smooth. Caramel, some molasses, and a touch of candi sugar upfront taste-wise. Kinda banana bready/fruit cakey. Touches of raisins & figs here and there. The finish is mildly bitter with some roasted black coffee and dark chocolate. Plenty of the aforementioned wintry spices present the whole way through. The alcohol is hidden quite nicely. Another surprise from Sam Adams.

Barreras (1572) - 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.
