This full bodied Irish-style Stout is smooth, dark and creamy with pleasant notes of baked gingerbread on the nose and palate that will make this an instant holiday classic. The use of oatmeal and ginger in the mashtun adds silkiness to the texture and body of this ale. Hints of roasted barley, chocolate and crystal malts combine with a warm lingering finish of ginger and cinnamon that pleasantly round out one of our richest creations to date.

    Very dark brown appearance with a beige head that leaves blotchy lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate, ginger and sweet coffee. Flavour starts sweet, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, accompanied by gingerbread and spice. Enjoyable stout with a twist. Good Christmas beer that I will be getting more of.

    Dark brown colour with cola-like highlights. Big beige frothy head with some nice creamy lacing and good retention. Aromas of mild roasted, chocolate malts with notes of vanilla and spices (soft ginger, maybe cinnamon). The ginger in the flavours are well-blended with the dark malts. Quite a bit of hops in the finish. Soft mouthfeel. Nice dryness. Wow ! This is very well-brewed winter spiced stout. Definitely have to buy more.

    The beer pours a solid black with a tan coloured bubbly head which lingers for a while. The aroma is ginger, spices, coffee, and roasted malt. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is sweet malt, ginger, spices, and a bitter coffee finish. Not as enjoyable as the Tree Brewing Old School Stout

    Pours a huge frothy beige head and has a very dark amber appearance. Thick patchy lacing. Aromas of bready malts, dough and ginger. Flavours are quite sweet, ginger, cinnamon, bready malt and biscuit. Some roasted malt notes as well as light earthy hops. Creamy and smooth mouthfeel.

    Bomber from BCLDB Willowbrook. Dark pour, clear ruby under a creamy beige head. Nice aroma, 'stoutish' plus gingerbread. Decent flavour, typical stout notes of coffee and dark chocolate as well as the gingerbread and vanilla. Okay mouthfeel. Finish just sweet enough. Nice effort for a CC 'special', as they've been hit and miss of late on some of these.
