2002 batch:Wow. This is killer stuff. Because they only sell this one day of the year at the brewery only, I had make a little journey. This was a whopping 25 dollars a six pack. The guy at Bells said it had 1000 dollars of corriander seeds in the batch. The taste of this brew is very strange and complex. So is its aroma. The only thing my taste buds can discern is the hops. All the other crazy flavors are a mystery to me. All I know is that its good.

Bottle. Thanks to SPRINKLE for the connections. Pours a dark pink color with a great thick head. Very sweet flavors here. Chocolate and alcohol notes on the tongue. Full chewy mouthfeel. Wanting this one for a long time.

Thanks DavidP. Has a nice deep dark brown color with a creamy tan head. Strong malty sweet aroma. Has a good body, with the right amount of carbonation. Stronger flavor. Overall, it’s kind of nice.

Paper notes from the Falls Tasting / 2006 YeHA!. Aroma is floral, with a ginger note evident. Pour is a cloudy light brown with a lacey head. Flavor is loaded with a malty-sweetness, some spice, and the ginger note remains. Marvelously complex with a lingering sweetness.

2013 version on draft at the eccentric cafe. Deep amber color with no head. Nose similar to a holiday ale, spicy with coriander and nutmeg. Flavor is a little off, almost rusty. Semi dry on the palate,. Always enjoy trying this every year, but once will be enough on this years.

2008 Bottle. Pours black with little head. Smells of brown sugar, caramel, alcohol, licorice. Taste is sweet like a desert wine. Full bodied and thick. Flavors of sugar, caramel, spices, vanilla and some bitters with an alcohol wash. Lots of things going on in this beer as it warms. Good sipping beer, maybe two bottles in a sitting, a little sweet for my taste. Nice beer all around.

I finaly got some, HELL YHEA! Waited all year and it was worth it. I had one while opening presents. Has a sharp almost vinager smell to it. This beer came up and punches you right in the taste buds. Had citrus notes and you can really taste the alcohol. I have three left and me brother and i plan to age them for a long time.

Dark red in color. Huge spice, anise, curry, and honeyed nose. Rich and complex with long lingering flavors of the spices and a barley wine like body with lots of hops and alcohol. Not quite sure what it is about it but I like it.

I enjoyed them with Funk and while I was expecting something a bit more we’re cellaring these beauties for about 4 years so we’ll get back to you then.
