4/5 rDev +7.5%
Solid deep brown with a light brown head that has excellent retention. The smell is ginger and chocolate. Flavor wise the ginger is evident throughout with a nice chocolate compliment. Tastes just like Green and Blacks dark chocolate bar with crystallized ginger. Warming effect from the ginger. Pleasantly surprised at how the well the ginger works in a stout. Has a medium feel that is silky on the tongue and not too heavy. Another excellent stout from 3 Sheeps.

Pours dark brown but not dark enough to make me think it is a stout. Nose is ginger, lots of ginger. Taste is ginger up front but not overpowering. Finishes smooth with a subtle hint of roastiness. Mouthfeel is very thin for a stout. I was pleasantly surprised by this. I thought the use of ginger was really well done.

12 oz bottle poured into a 3 Sheeps pint.
A - It's near impossible to see clarity through the faint slivers of deep mahogany at the bottom of the black beer's pint but they're there, lurking beneath a thick collar of tan lace.
S - The explosion of ginger from a dark beer is unique to say the least; it's aromatic qualities immediately bring thinly sliced, pink ginger complimenting sushi to mind (for me anyway). The ginger spice pairing with the rich dark chocolate undertones from the cocoa nibs, which open up even more as the beer warms, gives Ewephoria a completely untouched nose that not only works wonderfully but is also inviting.
T - Even more surprising than the already one-of-a-kind aroma, is that the powerful ginger smell rings far quieter than the voluptuous, tongue-coating chocolaty cocoa nib and roasted malt flavor in this beer. Mmm mmm good.
M - Delicate carbonation does well to not disturb the medium-bodied, full-flavored beer's silky smoothness as this roasted stout finishes with a lingering spicy, dry roast character that's perfectly balanced - unique flavor aside, this beer's texture alone presents a complex journey on the tongue.
O - I remember the first time I heard of this beer from one of 3 Sheeps' owners at, more than likely, a brewfest where it was loud. I repeated, "A gingerbread chocolate stout? That sounds amazing!" "No, a ginger chocolate stout." I was puzzled by the idea of pairing two polar opposite flavors together, which seemed a little far-fetched but, with their track record of putting a unique spin on their beers, "who am I to judge?" I thought. Needless to say, Ewephoria is a complete success, front to back. It's intriguing aroma leads to a rich and sensational flavor that finishes with beautiful smoothness and drinkability for a fantastic seasonal that's worth looking forward to.
