look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

With a dark mahogany ruby color, the beer is a medley of subtle caramel, dark toffee and slight brandy as it rides with a great concoction of ginger, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon and other warm spices that form the basis of the flavor. Firm gingerbread, nutmeg and clove makes up the aroma, with an aftertaste of strong, warm spiced ginger lingering nicely at the back of the palette. The mouthfeel is ideal and fits well with the gingerbread stout category. This is an ideal winter brew from this brewery. Other recommended beers for the wintertime is the Coconut Molasses Brown Ale from Duck Foot Brewing Company and the Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale from New Belgium Brewing. In terms of stouts, I recommend the Vanilla Bean Stout from Avery Brewing, the Eugene Porter from Revolution Brewing, the Double Nut Brown from Mammoth Brewing, the Old Goat’s Oatmeal Stout from San Marcos Brewing Company and the Stockyard Stout from Trader Joe’s.

Appearance - Dark brownish caramel with quick dissipating head.

Smell - Loads of cinnamon.

Taste - Even more cinnamon plus vast amounts of vanilla and chocolate.

Mouth-feel - Above average, nice and decently chewy .

In closing- Great beer for the style, top 5 no doubt

Absurdly sweet which is okay because I love cookies and this tastes like I'm drinking one. Dessert beer for sure.

From can, pours a very dark brown near black colour with some floaties. The head is a tan colour that is only a film.
Aroma well ginger, gingerbread cookies, spices.
Taste wow just what the name suggests. If you like gingerbread you'll love it, well made.
