Doesn't even resemble a stout in the slightest. Smells and tastes like carbonated cough syrup. Drain pour. Fail.

No thank you. Tastes like coke. Mouthfeel is way to bubbly. Doesn't taste like a stout at all. Alcohol and weird bitterness. One of very few beers I've ever poured out. I'd rather eat a bite of gingerbread and take a swig of Old Rasputin.

This is probably only the second or third beer I've poured down the drain this year. I was expecting a sweet seasonal stout, but this was just atrocious. It poured thin and tasted like Coke mixed with a very mediocre stout. I'm really, really confused as to why people like this beer. Did I just get a bad can? Or is this a flavor profile that people are really liking?

I will start by saying that my brother lasted about 3 drinks and myself 4 before pouring this out.

It was a thin, brownish black with little to no head.

It smelled like metal and ginger and nothing else bit maybe plastic.

Not surprisingly, it tasted the same. Lots of ginger. Like if you were trying to add some to a pot and accidentally spilled half of the container. Also a cola like flavor amongst the aluminum.

Very thin bodied. A little bit of crisp/fizzy carbonation. Watery feel.

I would hope that this was infected, but there is no way on even a good day that it is a double/imperial stout either. One of the worst 3 beera I have rated since joining Ba

PKG ON 9/30/2016.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown, blackish body with ruby-tinted edges and capped with a 3/4-inch head of rapidly deflating beige foam.

Smell: Ginger, cinnamon and a licorice-tinged star anise with a bit of washed coffee and roast.

Taste: Initial pop of ginger powder, anise and cinnamon with cola, low-grade chocolate. Alright, I've got the spiced gingerbread taste, which holds through the finish, but it's on top of a very bare, rather hollow stout, both in body and character.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-low carbonation. Nearingly watery.

Overall: Again, it suffers to much from a very underwhelming, lacking base beer.

Pours a thin head on a black body.
The aroma is ginger and bread.
The taste is just like gingerbread with a little frosting.
The texture is medium.
A fairly sweet stout, it lives up to it's name.

Black in color with just the faintest amount of light getting through. There's just a fain wisp of brown head covering perhaps a quarter of the top. The aroma is of ginger and cinnamon. The taste is very aggressive ginger. There's some faint dark malt. The mouth is very carbonated and crisp. That ginger is freakin' intense!
