Found this recipe in Cook's Illustrated Holiday Baking Book and I LOVE spicy gingerbread so this is going to be the center piece of my Holiday table. It states that Stout beer and hefty dose of spices, including black pepper, invest this cake with a complex, robust flavor. 4 teaspoons of fresh grated ginger adds an unmistakable element that dried spices can't muster. As for the glaze, ginger-ale lends a robust flavor but an equal amount of orange or lemon juice can be substitued for it.
