JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2009
Dark brown with a spicy aroma of roots, cinnamon, and dirt. Flavor has a bit of chocolate, but mostly roots, dirt, and assorted spices. Not one of their better efforts.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 26, 2009
Last of the keg at the Brickskeller, DC. Big head, thick, settled out in a nitro-esque fashion. Big spicy taste, quite intense. Lots of cinnamon and ginger. Very smooth mouthfeel. Ginger aftertaste is a little much for me, but I was happy to try this one nonetheless.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 12, 2009
Draft - RFD. Black, thin light tan creamy head. Roasted ginger and spicy cinnamon notes ride soft swirls of dry chocolate. Intense chocolate ginger and spice flavors balance well on a soft layer of molasses and caramel. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. I like unique, and this one one certainly is just that. Well done...

Lubiere (10457) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2009
A deep dark stout with a thin moka head. Very pleasant aroma of ginger and sweet chocolate. In mouth, crisp dry chocolate with light ginger, a bit of harsh tannins, but overall interesting little number. Rich and intense. On tap at RFD, Jan. 6 2009.

JohnC (3000) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JAN 9, 2009
Thanks to hopdog for this beer. It pours a very dark brown with a one fingered tightly bubbled tan head. Nice aroma with the ginger and cinnamon is followed by a light, tingly mouthfeel with soft, spicy flavor.
