This tasted exactly like toothpaste, not appealing at all. The ginger and chocolate idea sounded good, but didn't pan out for me.

First taste very complex. Hits of hops, spices, chocolate, chocolate nibs bite, smoke. deep malty. Hint of tobacco?
first review and I should have read how to review:)

3/7/15 (Bottle) - Nice dark brown / black pour with solid pillow tan head. Ginger, malt, chocolate, vanilla and sage among the wonderful aromas emanating from the pour. Very sweet,taste, thin texture with minimal carbonation. This is a nice drink to pair with dessert or to cap off a meal, with a decent kick. I typically do not like sweet beers but this is an exception, because of the quality, taste and abv. One of my favorite 3 Sheeps offerings!

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours dark brown with a light brown creamy, lasting head. Plenty of lacing sticks. A very nice-looking beer.

The smell of ginger is a bit overwhelming at first, but cocoa/chocolate soon comes through. Ginger and chocolate. Works well enough.

Like in the aroma, the taste of ginger is strong, but chocolate comes through plenty, especially as it warms. Finishes with a ginger dry spice and some alcohol warmth.

It hits full-bodied.

An interesting beer. I will give them credit for the unique character of the brew. The combination of ginger and chocolate works well here.

From notes on 4/29/14

Well, I’ve liked everything from 3 Sheeps that I have tried, except this. This was my first and probably last ginger flavored beer I’ll try. I actually had a four pack, first time poured it into a glass, and that was just too hard to drink. Not a fan of the overpowering ginger. Drank the rest right out of the bottle to minimize the smell. For some reason, it just reminded me of eating sushi.

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.
7.4% ABV,

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.
