3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with Jim and Lauren. Pours a deep black with a thin beige to tan head. Good amount of spices on the nose. Spicy, cinnamon and toast initially. Not so much gingerbread as just straight up ginger. Spicy roast, cocoa, chocolate. Interesting. If this was marketed as a ginger stout Iíd have been more impressed as it would be spot on for what was advertised. Instead it falls a little short but itís still a neat beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this as Merry Mischief Gingerbread Stout last time it was out. The bottle pours with a dark mahogany colored body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up a mix of dark roasted malts, chocolate, ginger, graham cracker and wintery spiciness. The taste is pretty big and rich with plenty of cinnamon and ginger and nutmeg and cloves to create a wintery cinnamon graham cracker to ginger snap cookie like sensation that rides on top of murmurs of roasted malts, sweet malts and chocolate. Pretty nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Nearly black, large frothy dark beige head, nice lacing.   Bright cinnamon/nutmeg spices, also a strong gingerbread cookie aroma.   Super strong.   A bit of a pine like foresty flavor profile, along with the aformentioned gingerbread.   The heavy spices attack the back of the throat, almost seems to burn a bit.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finish is strong with spices, and loads of gingerbread.   Can be a bit overwhelming at times.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from BevMo, Sacramento. Pours dark brown with a decent tan ead and a ginger and treacle aroma. There is a medium-bodied dark molasses flavor with modest ginger flavoring. The spices are appropriate rather than overwhelming.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Draft at Hopjacks Filling Station. Pours a coffee brown with a small beige head. Big spicy aroma. Notes of nutmeg, brown sugar, cinnamon, chocolate, roasted malts. Really works as gingerbread. Light-medium body - a little thin. Mild carbonation. Spicy mouthfeel. Solid.
