ben4321 (3846) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Location: 12 oz bottle via trade with Andy, thanks bud!, 3/25/14

Aroma: The nose is heavy spice, gingerbread, caramel, and a little roast
Appearance: It pours a brown color with a slight red hue, a beige head, and some light lace
Flavor: The taste thins out quite a bit, spice, sourdough bread, and a little yeast
Palate: The body is light, it is thin/watery on the mouth, with a dry, spicy finish
Overall Impression: Well, the nose it nice, Iím not really sure what happens from there, but something clearly went wrong here. For me, this beer is thin and this beer is a miss.

Block (1342) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Aroma is spicy. Flavor is mild with an upfront gingerbread flavor which fades quickly. Some nuttiness but more caramel flavor. Overall I thought this was an average brown ale.

Westmeister (1723) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Dark brown/mahogany with white doted tan head. Smell is heavily gingerbread sweet, nutmeg, bready malts. Taste is a pretty big let down. Donít get the same sweetness as the nose. Big, bitter/sour, nutty with old stale weak coffee notes. Ginger is not well integrated. Taste is just too confusing.

A decent spiced beer is par for the course from Triton - interesting but nothing particularly special. Iíd give it a miss unless you get a free sample or pay less than $1.00 for your bottle. Otherwise there are far better offerings in the area.

Aroma / Appearance - The caramel red base is the color of melted brownie frosting. An offwhite ivory head is a thin layer of protection from the air. Gumdrops, overcooked gingerbread, and spicy cinnamon are lackluster at best. If it were less smoky then it would improve greatly.

Flavor / Palate - Spicy gingerbread, malts, and tea leaves are interesting for a second before reality sets in. Diluted coffee grounds have a mild kick. The finish of cumin and cinnamon lends a seasonal edge which attempts to be novel. Unfortunately this is one of those experiments that went wrong.

jsquire (3417) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Dark brown beer with almost no head. Nose of buttered toast and cinnamon. Malty caramel sweetness with dusty spice of cinnamon and nutmeg. There is a bit of soured fruit in the finish. OK spiced beer.

Patrickctenchi (3556) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Bottle: Pours dark brown/red with a small tan cap. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, gingerbread. Taste is malt, nutmeg, baked bread. Thin....tingly carbonated. Like a pumpkin ale without the pumpkin. Ok, but not memorable.

TheAlum (5672) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Draft on tap at the tap room (Indianapolis, IN). Pours nice deeper brownish hue, gentle haze, some nice orange brown glow on the edges and bottom. Aromas show firmer gingerbread, some toast, gentle carmelization. Some spice, cinnamon and nutmeg, gentle earth. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied showing some gentle toast, brown malt, mellow carmelization and sweetness. Spice on the nose is not as intense as the body. Middle is a bit spicy, cinnamon gumdrops, and gentle nutmeg. Some decent dryness. Backend is a bit dry, toasty, and brown malt driven. Finish is a bit dry and mellow earthiness, toasty, brown earthy malts still meet a firm spiciness that really keeps going. Earns itís name. Ok.

Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a mostly transparent dark amberish brown with foamy light beige head. Smells of pleasant gingerbread and spices, but coupled with something Iím not fond of that I canít put my finger on. Tastes like it smells, but milder. The off-putting notes in the nose arenít present in the taste, but the flavor is pretty mild. You get some of brown ale flavor as well, but pretty weak. Average on the palate (itís a little thin). Eh.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - JAN 18, 2013
This draft brew from a restaurant poured small foamy head of quickly diminishing light brown coloured fine to medium sized bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body was transparent brown colored and uncarbonated. The mouthfeel was tingly from start to finish. The flavor was mild with a brown malt hoppy note which after warming up a bit showed more of its ginger and spicy notes. The aroma was if mild dough.

Date: January 25, 2012 Mode: Tap Source: Tomlinson Tap Room Description: Dark brown pour with minimal head. Aroma was pretty much a spicy gingerbread house. Taste was consistent with aroma. Very interesting, but not sure I would want a whole bunch of these at a sitting.
