COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich dark gingerbread stout entices with the aromas of the holidays. The flavor of gingerbread comes alive, beginning with the smooth sweetness and heartiness of dark roasted malts and a touch of wheat. But it’s the intensity and spices of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, & ginger that add a wicked kick for a jolly playful brew full of merry mischief.

Opaque black beer with a big tan head. Airy palate with fine carbonation. Quite light. Rich cake flavours here! Ginger cake and Golden Syrup cake! Mild minerals. Just a touch of dark malts in the background. Slight lactose. Not bad at all but couldn’t drink loads.

bhensonb (15358) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Bottle from the Folsom BevMo. Pours a very dark brown with a 2 finger creamy dark tan head. Aroma is dark malt and lots of spice - clove and ginger seem to stand out. Full bodied with creamy carbonation. The flavor is incredibly flavorful. Nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, particularly (in sort of aftertaste) ginger, but there seems to be even more. The spice is so strong I’d go for rosemary, except the evergreen is missing. To borrow from the movie: "Intense is the word" Woof.
