Merry Mischief by Sam Adams is a 9.0% ABV Gingerbread Stout. It is made with Cinnamons, Nutmeg, Cloves and Gingerbread
Lively & Festive with a Devilish Streak
This rich dark brew entices with the aromas of the holidays, hinting at the merriment and spices within. The flavor of gingerbread comes alive beginning with the smooth sweetness and heartiness of dark roasted malts and a touch of wheat. But it’s the intensity and spices of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, & ginger that add a wicked kick for a jolly playful brew full of merry mischief.
Now this is nice and wonderful :P. The fragrances of this beer is very rich. Like a chocolate chip and banana nut muffin. The rich flavors of this beers come out right away. Chocolate, bananas, coffee, gingerbread, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, caramel, little bit of pumpkin pie, brown sugar cookies dipped in milk, earthy hops create a minor bitterness for balance and raisins. This beer is really creamy. Like a chocolate milk shake, or at least it feels that way as you try it. As for a Christmas beer, YES, go get this one… it is quite good 😛
