This beer is amazing in every way. Every time it comes in season I immediately go to my local beer store and buy a few bottles. Every night that I crack one open it's like heaven in my mouth. I think it might be the fact that it is basically Christmas in a bottle that makes it taste so nice.

Serving Type - 22oz caged and corked bottle
Appearance - Dark brownish tan/black with a 1/2 inch foamy head, lots of sticky lacing.
Smell - Ginger, milk lactose, vanilla, cinnamon, Cherry, caramel malts, chocolate and a little bourbon in the finish.
Taste - From the first sip, you get a nice mix of ginger and vanilla. The sweet milk lactose is mild and sweet and mixes well with the ginger. Chocolate is bold and very tasty with this beer. Malts are slightly noticeable with some caramel flavors. Cinnamon and sweet fruits make up a solid backbone to this beer.
Mouthfeel - Ginger adds a sting to the tongue along with some vanilla. Palate gets lactose and fruits along with some caramel malts. Aftertaste is ginger, chocolate and vanilla.
Overall - Really nice holiday beer. Its not overly sweet and balanced really well. Each element stands out but, mixes in with eachother well. Its not as sweet as I was expecting, and has more vanilla then I figured. This should be a staple holiday ale for anyone that can get it!

Hardywood gingerbread stout shared at RBWG-2014
Slight harshness/burn from the ginger.
Aroma is balanced, with a moderate dose of ginger.
The ginger is way more pronounced in the mouth. I did adjust as I drank but it still seemed a bit overdone even at the end.
