I'll cut to the chase, this is a disappointing beer, especially for the price.

It pours nice and dark with very little head. The aroma is faintly spiced and barely beer-like.

The taste is light and crisp, beer-like with a nice hint of spice. It is a subtle, balanced flavor. The aftertaste is nice and it makes for a mildly interesting burp.

This brew is pretty tame and subtle. It is not a good value and I will avoid it in the future.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours dark brown, almost black in the glass with a tan/light mocha head.

S: Ginger, cloves, nutmeg and coffee in a delicious smelling nose. Interesting.

T: Lighter fruits, citrus peels, then ginger and nutmeg, maybe cloves, then coffee, biscuit and finally floral and citric hops in the finish.

M: Medium bodied and a bit smooth.

O: It's what you might expect from a gingerbread stout, minus the roasty flavors. It's pretty good, but it would likely benefit from the admixture of roasted malt.
