Appearance is a black liquid with a foamy, sudsy light brown head. The smell is just like gingerbread cookies...spicy ginger and sugar, backed with a little malt and alcohol. The taste is sweet, but not cloying...a firm malt structure and lots of spice and ginger. I a usually dubious of spicy gimmick holiday brews. This one, however, is well made and a real treat. Enjoyable and flavorful.

I have liked a lot of the Sam Adams bigger stuff and this one was also good, but not as good as the others.

This beer literally tastes exactly as described, its got all the traits of a stout, malts, coffee and dark chocolate, with a lovely cakey, cookie breadyness, gingersnaps, cinnamon and nutmeg. Definitely the perfect Christmas brew.
