Went to the tasting room for this highly reviewed beer. Since when did Richmond become the craft beer Mecca? Pours to a nice 2 finger head. Dark but not cloudy. Nice head retention. Aroma is to die for....gingerbread, nutmeg, chocolate, vanilla and sweet caramelized sugars...drink in the aroma...his the lips with a very smooth and clean entrance. Taste gingerbread, nutmeg and chocolate instantly. Others have said it but it is true....Christmas in a glass/bottle. I have had both now but on tap is a upgrade if you can believe that...goes down smooth with a nice after taste of gingerbread, nutmeg and chocolate with a hint of vanilla. I've bought a case of 750ml bottles since trying this beer. I'm hooked.
Serving type: on-tap

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance - Almost black. Minuscule khaki head that settles to swirls on the surface.
Smell - Tons of gingerbread. Cinnamon and other Christmas spices. Some chocolate.
Taste - Wow. Lots of ginger. Closer to gingersnaps than gingerbread. Strong cinnamon again. Some chocolate in the finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium body, maybe too thin for such a big stout with big flavors. Well carbonated.
Overall - The spices elevate this beyond the what the base stout seems to deliver.
