Nomad Brewing Co - Gingerbread Milk Stout - Beer Review

Review Date: 13/12/2021
Brewery Name: Nomad Brewing Co (Brookvale, NSW, Australia)
Beer Name: Gingerbread Milk Stout

Beer number 13 of our Beer Cartel Advent Calendar for 2021

Check out our full run down and review of the 2021 Beer Cartel Christmas Beer Advent Calendar

"Here at NOMAD we always love it when christmas rolls around so we can get creative with the Beer Cartel Advent Box. It’s a bit of a whole brewery affair as we put our thinking caps on and come up with something that will add a little bit of christmas cheer to everyone as they pop open our allocated day! We’ve got a mix of nationalities here at NOMAD so when we think Christmas we get a range of responses from prawns to egg nog! But one consistent thing that popped up was Gingerbread. Making Gingerbread houses was a memories for many of us here at NOMAD so we decided that we’d roll these memories into a beer and create a Gingerbread Milk Stout. With the addition of ginger and spice and all things nice we’ve created a little bit of Christmas in a can for you to enjoy."

Drinkability: 6/10

Overall Impression: 7/10


A fun and interesting take on a Christmas classic. Plenty of spice flavours going on that match well with the lactose, malt and hops. Quite a bit of sweetness happening with a light to medium body and short finish
