Bison Organic Gingerbread Ale seems to have an identity crisis. The name says ale, but the description says porter. Color is dark like a porter, but the taste is more like a good brown ale. The head dissipates quickly. Aroma is light citrus, Flavor is like a fine brown ale with a slight gingerbread flavor -- not so much as to overpower the beer or make it too sweet. Which ever the style, I am enjoying Gingerbread Ale. Nejhleader (1559) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2005
aroma of cinamon/and nutmeg. tastes are very similiar. Very different. Tastes like a weak pumpkin ale sorta. very good overall. IHCNavistar (93) - Orinda, California, USA - JUN 18, 2006
Big Bottle. Aroma is of spices/cinnamon/ginger, with undertones of hops, and a little malt. Flavor is just like that of gingerbread- warming, with some hops and a little malt thrown into the mix. Although it reminds me of gingerbread and pumpkin pie, I don’t taste any pumpkin in it (probably the cinnamon and ginger)! Had this a while ago so I am doing this from memory, and I definitely remember this beer. Very and will definitely buy again! excellent as a seasonal winter beer.

My new favorite for the holiday season. Goes down real smooth but can only have one. roasty, earthy, ginger Krausen (102) - USA - JAN 30, 2005
One of my favorite winter beers this year (2004). Subtle spicing and nice malty-ness make this one a winner. It does not have the strong clove that Anchor has or the club-you-over-the-head spice levels that Anderson Valley has. Great balance.

This one has a great aroma to it. Ginger, herbs, cinnamon, and spice. Has a nice dark pour, similar to a darker porter. Has a nice toasty taste that is pretty damn good. thetmaxx (917) - West Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 31, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2011 Awesome beer! poured into a 12 ounce glass, nice dark colour, with thin head that doesn’t hang around. Aroma is that of freshly " baked" Ginger bread men. Flavour is the same. With a thin body. Excellent holiday beer. Itzjerm (2863) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - DEC 28, 2012
For what they have set out to do. Pretty good. Smells of ginger bread. Flavor is carbonated ginger bread all in all not bad nice aroma looks as should

Ok. Good ginger bread aroma, followed through in flavor. What I don't like is this is quite thin, and the base beer is not superb. Should've been a stout. B-

A dark brown ale that is sort of opaque and has foam patching for a head. The nose is spicey and i can tell this is a real treat. Flavor is roasty and a prime example of how a porter is supposed to be but then theres that extra added spice. Almosy like a cinnamon and nutmeg plus gingerbread.
