Golden Road Brewing Back Home Gingerbread Stout
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Golden Road Brewing Back Home Gingerbread Stout. I picked this can up at The Wine Club in San Jose (here). They have a small craft beer section, but they have an incredible selection. If you're anywhere near The Wine Club go visit them and tell 'em Mark from NorCal Beer Blog sent you!
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours dark brown with a thick tan head and light lacing.
Aroma: Gingerbread cookies, cinnamon, allspice, roasted malts, graham cracker and a touch of chocolate.
Taste: Gingerbread – heavy on the ginger – vanilla, roasted malts, cinnamon, chocolate, nutmeg, allspice and a slight graham cracker flavor.
Overall: A nice seasonal, Golden Road Brewing Back Home Gingerbread Stout is good holiday drinking. I don’t know that I could drink more than one of these 8.5% ABV offerings, but for the right occasion (or dessert) it is excellent. I’d pick it up again.
