It Came Upon a Midnight Beer

Peek behind door number eight to find…

Another gingerbread beer, Samuel Adams Merry Mischief Gingerbread Stout.


The poem “The Night Before Christmas”, published anonymously in 1823, is generally credited for creating the modern day idea of Santa Claus.

Samuel Adams Merry Mischief


Merry Mischief is deepest black with a ton of thick mocha coloured head that has great retention. The nose carries ginger and sweet malt to the forefront. Taking a sip this one is big bodied with a creamy mouthfeel but at the same time there is an airy quality to the mouthfeel reminiscent of draught beer. The flavour is deep roasted malt and Christmas spices like clove and nutmeg. A real winter warmer that has a distinctive liqour taste. As it warms, Merry Mischief becomes a sweet and spicy stout with very little bitterness. I am not a big coffee or bitter fan so this stout is quite appealing to me. Overall a really fantastic Christmas stout that incorporates spices in a complementary way.


Once again I am bringing out the nine candy canes.
