Review: Red Racer Gingerhead Gingerbread Stout

So.. his beer sold out near immediately when it arrived at the LC a month ago - it's winter, who doesn't love stout and gingerbread?!

I only managed to pick up one bottle of Central City's Red Racer's Gingerhead Gingerbread Stout. So I have to savour it as much as I can.

Appearance: Gingerhead pours a very thick, dark chocolate & molassesy black. Decent amount of burnt caramel head. Bit of a foamy lacing to the side of the glass.

Aroma: This is very much a dessert beer, also - a winter themed beer. Smells of ginger bread, nutmeg, molasses and some dark chocolate.

Taste: Very much like the aroma - a sweet dessert beer. Lots of gingerbread pops its way in my mouth - so sweet. Lots of brown sugar, nutmeg, a bit of a nuttiness to it. Some dark chocolate, vanilla notes. Creamy mouth feel. 

Overall thoughts: This is a bit much for one person, as this is a very sweet and gingerbready stout. Good for sharing with friends after a dessert, but a bit much just for me. Very sweet and nutty. Is drink it again, but In a smaller format. 6% ABV
