Beer Review: Bison Brewing’s Organic Ginger

2013-12-02 20.10.56

From the bottle:

Our spiced holiday porter is brewed with only a touch of spices for the aroma of fresh baked gingerbread men. The chewy dark malt flavors are sure to smooth out the dinner with the in-laws.

 

From my notes:

Dark caramel look, nice, thick, foamy, sand brown head. Lots of ginger and spice on the nose. On the tongue there is malt, spices, and nuts. There is a lot more than a hint of spice though!

2013-12-02 20.11.36-2This beer smells like warm baked gingerbread cookies! The taste of the beer delivers on that! Malty, oaty, spicey goodness. It might be a little too on the nose with the gingerbread smell and flavor! I’ve got a soft spot for porters and dark ales and I couldn’t not like this one.

Doesn’t mix well with polite company; his two favorite topics being politics and religion. Would rather be out cycling, swimming, running, or camping. Misspent his youth reading genre-fiction; today, he is making up for it by reading large quantities of non-fiction literature. The fact that truth, in every way, is more fascinating than fiction still tickles him.
