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 its the intensity and spices of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, & ginger that add a wicked kick for a jolly playful brew full of merry mischief.

Pours dark with little head. Smells like heavy ginger and cinnamon. Mouthfeel more like a porter with heavy ginger-nutmeg-cinnamon. Flavors hit what theyre going for. Tastes like X-mas. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 ounce bottle. Opague brown, black color topped by a thick bubbly tan head. Aroma or sweet roasted malt, molasses and gingerbread. Rich chewy roasted malt flavor with obvious gingerbread flavor. Molasses, raisins, figs and all the spices are here. Nice to sip this by the fireplace or chiminea. Thick and rich with a nice treacle-like finish. Some resiny hops as well.

degbert (1771) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle. (Firsties.) Pours a rich, oily brown-black with a high, tight-grained head. Nose is molasses, spice, and dried fruit -- its a beer that smells like a fruitcake. (And I mean a good fruitcake, not that thing your Aunt Harriet keeps giving people every year.) At the front of the mouth, its dry and spicy, but the sweetness opens up into what I can only call molasses-drenched espresso. On the finish, notes of vanilla and brown sugar open up, and there is a return of that same dryness. Very nice and well balanced.

tnkw01 (1747) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Bottle. Deep brown almost black. Nice big, brown foamy head that quickly disappears. Aroma is gingerbread. Taste is also gingerbread sweet. Almost too sweet. Very light notes of chocolate and cinnamon.

I really like this brew. Part of a Costco sampler. Well flavored and goes down warm and toasty. Nice brew. Great winter brew.

Barreras (1685) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Pours a deep brown color with a distinct ginger spice aroma. Taste is a rich malr flavor with a sweet gingerbread cookie flavor. Roasted malt is evident and a good mix with the mild gingerbread and cinnamon flavor.

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