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.

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.

DSG (5750) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Alex Shmoo-Shmoo.As Samuel Adams Merry Maker Gingerbread Stout. Black with a thin tan head. Aroma of cookies with ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and a bit of chocolate. Sweetish flavor with chocolate, cookies, spices, some roastiness in the background and a bitterish finish. Medium to full-bodied. Decent.

Mora2000 (5666) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2012
The beer pours a very dark brown to black color with a tan head. The aroma has a lot of cinnamon and nutmeg notes, as well as some roasted malt. The flavor is very similar. The ginger and strong cinnamon notes really come through strongly. They are joined by some chocolate and roasted malt character that melds well with the spices. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice, spicy stout.

Braudog (5647) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Bottle. Black, of course. Gingerbread cookie aroma wafts at least a foot away from the glass. If you get closer, you get more of an alcohol tease. It drinks quite nicely ... not as much gingerbread as I feared. Instead, a mellow cinnamon, holiday beer essence. Enjoyable holiday stout. (#4886, 1/3/2013)
