3.53/5  rDev -4.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Black color with a creamy/foamy tan head; ample lacing.

Smell: Sweet, spicy, and yeasty--not too strong.

Taste: Sweet malts up front but resolves to a roasty finish. Some spices in the middle; not too much gingerbread flavor (very faint in the middle).

Mouthfeel: A bit thick and coating.

Overall: A decent holiday beer although for something advertised as a gingerbread stout, I was looking for more gingerbread flavor. The malt seems to cover up the spices a little bit. Comparable to a decent pumpkin beer.

Serving type: bottle
