33cl bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a medium off-white head. Aroma of ginger, cinnamon and coco. Fairly roasty. It smells exactly like IKEA biscuits (ginger biscuits). Flavor is quite spiced with alot of ginger and some cinnamon. Some roasty bitterness too. Quite stout-ish base, spiced with those biscuits. Medium body with soft carbonation. Overall, the first of its kind to me, and quite nice indeed. Nisse666 (7675) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2010

AR: to much cloves (more like glögg (Swedish gluwein)), resin, pine
AP: dark, dark ruby red (amlost black), of white frothy head, nice curtains
F: roasted malt, ginger bread, thin body, metallic feeling, medium high bitterness, some coffey. Definitivly not one of the better Brewdogs I have consumed! larsga (7602) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2010
Big brown head. Black body goes barely translucent brown at edges. Spicy cinnamon cocoa and pine needle aroma with roasty notes. Dry intensely spicy ginger and cinnamon taste with wooden cocoa notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dry wooden pine needle aftertaste with roasty cocoa notes. The spiciness is a bit sharp and harsh for such a thin, dry beer, but it’s still a good beer.

330ml bottle (batch 297, best before 4 September 2011) @ Christmas tasting on 28 December 2010. Dark brown colour with a reddish tinge. Thanks to Jan for bringing over this beer, which we cannot get in the UK. A fairly light-bodied stout with some powdery chocolate/cocoa. However, I am overly enamoured of a lot of spices in a beer and this was very heavily spiced indeed. Although not specifically mentioned in the commercial description, I thought I picked up lots of cinnamon & nutmeg as well as the ginger that is mentioned. OK but just far too much spice for my taste. All a matter of personal choice of course.

(Bottle, 0.33 l - BBE 29/09/12, 201111124) The beer poured dark brown. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had cinnamon, chocolate and ginger. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were ginger, chocolate, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste had spices and bitterness. After sniffing the beer I was expecting a heavier spice bomb but the flavours were quite balanced which was a nice surprise.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2010 330ml Bottle (Thanks Svesse) - Dark brown with a tan head. Spicy and chocolatey aroma with hints of ginger and cinnamon. Gingerbread, malt and chocolate dominate the taste with a bitter and slightly warming finish. tiong (7433) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 9, 2011
330ml bottle from K-Supermarket KamppiVastActiv (7390) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 30, 2013
Batch 1273 BBE 29/09/12 - Pours dark brown, almost black with a small foamy head. Aroma has notes of slightly roasty malts, gingerbread, cinnamon and other Christmas spices. Taste has notes of slightly roasted malts, spices, cocoa and some fruity hints. Finish is carbonated and slightly hoppy. Okay spicy stout that certainly gets you in the mood for Christmas. Not very well balanced, though.
Bottle 0.33l from local market. Originally rated 06122011. Colour is dark brown with small head. Aromas and flavours: Spices, sweetness, ginger and malts. olsvammel (7256) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget. It poured a pitch black liquid with a big light brown head. Smel of ginger and lots of it. Taste of ginger, fruits, fruit cake, spices, dried apples and cinnamon. Semi-smooth mouthfeel, medium thick body and a high amount of carbonation. This was like drinking a liquid fruit cake spiced with ginger. Hard to rate but interesting... I liked it. larsniclas (7144) - Billdal, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2010
Bottled from Systembolaget
Black with a large, off-white head.
Fresh, slightly roasted aroma and flavour with ginger.
Light to medium bitterness and pretty moderate sping makes it a good beer in my palate!
