Style: American Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.40%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
This ginger chocolate stout will ring in at 7.4% ABV and makes for a unique but entirely drinkable winter brew.

We gave this nice, roasty stout base an infusion of chocolate as well as a generous, but not overpowering, dose of ginger. This results in complex but well balanced beer that will help keep you nice and warm during the winter months!

*Malt Beverage Brewed with Natural Flavors and with Spice and Cocoa Nibs added.

A great blend of chocolate, roast and ginger just like the beer advertises itself to be. It had a bit of a dry or underwhelming finish that detracted from the overall beer a little bit.

12oz bottle, served in a snifter glass.

Pours a dark black body, one finger white head, thin collar, minimal retention, very sporadic lacing. Smells of allspice, cocoa, ginger, dark chocolate, a bit of roast. Flavour is similarly ginger and allspice heavy, a fair bit of cocoa, dark chocolate, minimal roast, a bit of earthy bitterness that attempts to balance out the spices. It's quite spice heavy and it lingers on the palate. The sweeter chocolate and roast does a decent enough job trying to balance it out, but it's not quite successful. Mouthfeel is medium-fuller bodied, nice silky mouthfeel with adequate carbonation. A spice-heavy stout with a lot of ginger and allspice, a bit too much for me. Still not a bad beer, though.

poured 12oz bottle into a snifter. Very dark brown with a light tan head with some lavender highlights. Retention is decent and there are some blobs of lacing on the glass. Aroma is a good amount of ginger and ginseng that blend into a roasted malt with plenty of cocoa. Think of chocolate ginger cookies in the oven, it is a pleasant smell. Taste follows the nose with ginger and ginseng up front. The roasted malts in the stout then take over along with a deep chocolate and cocoa flavor. Feel is a bit thin, but smooth and well carbonated. An enjoyable stout that allows the sweetness to balance the spice. Makes a nice holiday/winter beer.

Appearance - The beer was a deep black color with a smooth foamy white head.

Smell - The ginger leads the way in the nosr, followed by the chocolatey malts.

Taste - The ginger really jumps out, but it is not overpowering. The ginger combines with milk chocolatey malts. I might describe this as liquid chocolate ginger bread cookies. In the aftertaste, the ginger lingers.

Mouthfeel - The beer has an incredible smooth foamy mouthfeel.

Overall - This is one of those beers where serving temperature is really important. If it is too cold, you might miss a lot. Open the bottle and let the beer warm closer to room temperature. You will not be disappointed.

No date on bottle. Pours brownish black with a medium-sized brown head. Fits perfectly into a 20oz glass on a hard pour. Smells predominately of ginger and roasted malt. Taste follows closely with ginger, malt, some char, and some slight cocoa. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel but with a slight ginger burn. Medium body and medium carbonation for the style. Overall, tastes like a solid stout with a hefty dose of ginger.

This tasted exactly like toothpaste, not appealing at all. The ginger and chocolate idea sounded good, but didn't pan out for me.

First taste very complex. Hits of hops, spices, chocolate, chocolate nibs bite, smoke. deep malty. Hint of tobacco?
first review and I should have read how to review:)

3/7/15 (Bottle) - Nice dark brown / black pour with solid pillow tan head. Ginger, malt, chocolate, vanilla and sage among the wonderful aromas emanating from the pour. Very sweet,taste, thin texture with minimal carbonation. This is a nice drink to pair with dessert or to cap off a meal, with a decent kick. I typically do not like sweet beers but this is an exception, because of the quality, taste and abv. One of my favorite 3 Sheeps offerings!
