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.

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.

12 oz bottle. Poured very dark brown with a semi-durable beige head.
Aroma: excellent balance in a blend of porter and gingerbread.
Flavor: not so balanced as the aroma, but richer and with more ginger. Also a touch of spicy hops. Lingering bready malt and ginger flavor.
Feel: medium body and carbonation; lively; enough ginger to add to the feel.
O: good but may improve with a little aging.

I'm a fan of pumpkin beers and that's what this beer reminded me of, since gingerbread and pumpkin spice contain some of the same spices. In actuality, this beer didn't remind me enough gingerbread. I did enjoy the lightness of the beer but if it was a bit creamier or had more of a ginger flavor, I think I would have enjoyed it better.

12 oz bottle poured into Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass.
A: Nice Dark brown, pretty clear with a good 2 fingers worth of creamy off white head with fantastic lacing from start to finish.
S: I'm getting a lot of ginger spice aromas, very much like a freshly baked ginger bread cookie. There is also a little cinnamon in the aroma.
T: A lot like the smell here.... Gingerbread cookie with nutmeg, cinnamon and a light touch of chocolate. There is also a nice roasted malt running underneath everything.
M: Medium bodied with good carbonation, pretty smooth with a clean finish and a little warming feeling
D: A very nice holiday beer, great flavors good ABV. Perfect for the season, well worth looking for.
