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.

My boys picked this to let out for Santa this year. Nice choice, it’s a good holiday stout. The gingerbread flavors truly come through. Deep brownish black in color with creamy cocoa colored head. Drink up Santa!

On tap at Yard House 221214. Ginger and spice in both the aroma and flavour. Poured a deep black. Decent.

Spice, yeast, dough. Pours black with a thick dark tan head. Smooth. Spice. Clean finish. Not as boozy as I would have thought but just a nice warmth.

I greatly admire the execution of this beer, but it isn’t for me. While all the spices make for a magnificent aroma, the gingerbread flavor didn’t quite work with the roasted malt taste. Not for me, anyway. I suspect a lot of people might like the combination of rich malt and holiday flavors. Appearance was quite good, and the balance works nicely. The 9% ABV is well-hidden beneath the body. And did I mention the smell is fantastic? It really is like a holiday potpourri.

Very dark in color with a definite aroma of gingerbread and other "holiday spices". Great gingerbread roasted malt taste. Very much enjoyed.

Poured from the bottle into a glass. Aroma consists of ginger, brown sugar, nuts, and yeast. The taste focuses too much on the ginger, it ends up becoming a ginger bomb. Medium body with a moderate amount of carbonation and a sticky mouth feel. Meh

liquidhedonism (289) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - DEC 19, 2014
On tap at Yard House in Portland, OR. Aroma: malty, boozy, and roasty, with hints of gingerbread, fall spices, coffee, licorice, and ash. Taste/Palate: sweet, astringent, and creamy.

julesjis (256) - Oregon, USA - DEC 19, 2014
On tap at the Yard House in Portland. Aroma is boozy and bready. Flavor is definitely a sweet gingerbread flavor. Has a bit of a stale licorice taste to it. Feels a bit chalky.

HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Bomber from Wilbur’s. Appearance: finger dark brown to copper head, dark brown, opaque, Aroma: ginger, chocolate, spicey hops, malt. Palate: full body, average carbonation, creamy texture, light lingering ginger taste. Taste: sweet malt and chocolate, into a gingersnap cookie sweetness, with just enough of a hop backbone to balance it out, finish is ginger spice. Overall, very nice balance, lovely seasonal, ginger is amazing in this beer.

jackl (8215) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Sample @ Bier Baron. Deep brown with a small head. Aroma of chocolate and ginger snap cookie. Strong ginger. Brown sugar. Flavor is a little more nuanced than the frankly blunt aroma suggests. Mellow coffee and roasted pepper. Caramel wafers. Slightly spicy peppered ginger finish. Medium body, soft carb.
