22 oz bottle from Midway Market (!) for $6.99. Aroma of spicy ginger and cinnamon and cloves, dark malt. Almost-black with a huge, almost-creamy, persistent light brown head. Flavor more ginger and spices. Medium body, medium-heavy stickiness. 9% is hidden well. Decent for the style. Oscbert (1306) - Lincoln, California, USA - DEC 29, 2014
~Aroma of clove, ginger, and cinnamon with bread, roasted malt.
~Pours black with fluffy lasting light brown head.
~Ginger, cinnamon and clove in flavor with bitter roastiness, sweet caramel malt.
~Medium light bodied with medium CO2, somewhat refreshing feel, lingering roast bitterness.
~Enjoyable spiced beer. I like that the spices don’t overpower the malts completly. Not my favorite style of beer, but easy to drink. beertholomeus (1813) - California, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Pours black with a tan head. Chocolate, spice, roasted malt and bready aroma. Chocolate, ginger, licorice, cinnamon, clove, biscuit and roasted malt flavors. Full body and moderate carbonation. Chocolate, clove and nutmeg finish. 1guywith_aboat (254) - phenix city, Alabama, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Very impressive. rich roasted and toasted flavors with huge spices but not overwhelming. Very sweet balanced by bitter roasted malts. Nice thick body and creamy mouthfeel. Low co2. Slight booziness. The spices are there but modest which is great.

Smells great! Looks great! It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.... And then the Grinch comes in and steals what had the beginnings of a wonderful treat. Very thin for a stout and the ginger just didn't mesh well with the rest of it. Seems more like a winter warmer and someone tossed in crystallized ginger and shook McCormack nutmeg, etc on top.

Tried the Golden Road Gingerbread stout and LOVED it. I had high hopes for this beer but overall disappointed. The stout itself just wasn't very good. Too bitter for my pallet. The gingerbread flavor was lacking and not strong enough for me. Would not purchase again, but might try again to see if it was the batch.

Dark brown/black with a thick. coffee foam. Roasty sweet malt aroma. The gingerbread flavor comes through without being overwhelming. Nice Christmas beer. TheCaptMatey (213) - Ohio, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Pours a brown to black colour with a toffee head. Aroma is of ginger, nutty malts, and brown sugar/ maple. Flavor is . Medium bodied with medium carbonated brew with a smooth mouth feel leading to a sweet finish. Good holiday brew.
