a dark evil blackish ruby..with artistic lacing..aroma was subtle..whispering in roasty spiced fruits..high carbination..definite ginger..chocolatey..oiley..coca cola..more ginger..the alcohol level creaps on you because its not noticed at all..at times it tasted very much like coca-cola..or maybe a Coca-Cola/Ginger ale intimate intertwinment...but I very much like this stout as an oily spicy concoction that makes me a happy man and I dont care what anyone says

Nicely spiced stout - i taste nutmeg and lots of ginger. someoneís been into my wifeís baking spices! medium bodied, totally dark and opaque. good, but by the end, the spices tend to overtake the flavor.

Nice dark brown color with a small but persistent tan head. The aroma was nice and chocolaty, with hints of roasted bitterness and nutmeg. The flavor had a stronger spice tone to it with nutmeg, cinammon, and ginger kick. The spices seemed out of place here, like they didnít contribute to the overall flavor, but simply sat on top of it. My guess is that the intention was to blend the flavors into one indescribable holiday thingy, but the spices just didnít seem to cooperate. Nice overall stout with an interesting flavor.

Black brew with a creamy tan head. There is something strange going on here. Iím not sure if itís the ginger or what but something is throwing this brew off.As it warms Iím starting to get the mentholatum that others mentioned. Very odd brew.

Mentho-Lyptus. If youíre really into spiced beers, this is a good one for you--a big roasty stout with added flavors of ginger and menthol. If youíre not into spicy beer--and Iím generally not--avoid this one.

cardamon & cinnamon in the nose. Dark brown w/ a nice tan head. Nice spicy upfront taste w/ a smooth finish. a very enjoyable beer. I think it would be great w/ spicy food

Cloudy dark brown color, spicy aroma, taste like maple suryp, nutmeg, coffee, cinnamon and brown sugar. thick and creamy mouthfeel.

A good beer, but not as stouty as I would like. They seem to have neglected the "stout" part of the "spiced stout" equation. The spice did not blend with the stout so much as subvert it. These seasonal bells are good, but each seems to be slightly off. A near miss.

3.7
JPDIPSO (6216) - Wauwatosa, USA - NOV 21, 2002
Dark brown/mohagany color with a smallish light tan head. Aroma of allspice with just a hint of malt. Sharp spice up front with lingers of cinnamon and nutmeg. Dark malts in the background with a touch of peat dryness.
