Bottle. Pours dark brownish with black edges. Nose is cacao, patent malt, molasses, mild anise. Tastes pretty rich, with patent malt, cacao, molasses, black licorice, and some gingery spice in the finish. FROTHINGSLOSH (8272) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2013
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very dark brown color with a small foamy tan head that faded and left no lacing. The aroma was ginger powder, faint toasty malts and a touch of vague fruits. The flavor was ginger powder, toasty malts, a tart and chalky presence and just fell off to water. Short watery ginger finish. Thin and watery body. Disappointing. ben4321 (6827) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2011

Aroma: The nose has some spice, there is some molasses present but not much ginger
Appearance: It pours a medium brown color with minimal beige head
Flavor: The taste is alright, lots of molasses, its sugary, very minimal ginger presence here as well
Palate: This one has a medium body, a decent mouthfeel, but it fades pretty quickly
This stuff was alright. I mean it has a lot of sugary notes and some spice, but there isn’t a ton going on beyond that. The ginger really isn’t present in this one at all. I wouldn’t rush out for it again, but it wasn’t terrible either.

Backlog of ratings. Thanks to someone at one of bu11zeye’s tastings. The smell is very spiced, molasses, sweet, sugary, ginger. The look is is brown in color, off white head. The taste is all over the place, molasses, spiced, sweet, and licorice.
