12 oz bottle from Total Wine & More - Gilbert (AZ). Dark brown appearance with a tan head. Aroma of bread, cinnamon, nutmeg, light ginger, herbs, other spices and dark malts. Flavor is spiced, rich and malty with mild sweetness. OK. GreatDane1632 (1174) - North Dakota, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Rated based on notes taken 25 Dec 2011 -- A good beer for Christmas Morning/Afternoon/Night. Very Christmas spicy. A little lacking on backbone. radagast83 (8476) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - NOV 22, 2014
12oz bottle. Poured a medium brown, almost cola-like color with a small off-white head. Aroma was some light spices and sweet malt characters, some light ginger notes. Flavor is cocoa, toasted malts, and some thin notes of gingerbread. A bit disappointing. DrewFace (970) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Malty, light roasty, some spice, muted. Sale pour, nearly black, small/no head. Metallic, grainy, some roast, spice -ginger, cinnamon...but lacking overall. Mehhh tricyclist (1125) - Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Not a bad pour of moderate darkish brown. Zesty nose of some sweetness and moderate spice, some cinnamon and nutmeg. Flavor is similar with more caramel sweetness. Not bad but multiple won’t happen with me.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2015 It doesn’t really taste like gingerbread, but it still has a great dark malty flavor to it that makes it a good beer standing alone.

Draft. Clear dark brown color, tan edge head. Aroma of lightly spiced brownies. Taste is gingerbread. alexsdad06 (10817) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle from old backlog notes 07. Pours dark brown in color with reddish highlights and a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have mild roasted malt and chocolate with heavier doses of gingerbread cookies and spices,. The body is on the thin side which distracted me a little.

This rich dark brown ale has a strong ginger aroma and cinnamon flavor. Very interesting.
