A pre-winter winner.

VAYankee (334) - Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Dark brown body with thin light brown head. Lightly sweet malt, faint nut aroma. Very thin on the palate. Flavor is some dry, roasted malt, a little bitterness, a little bready. Undistinguished mild nutty/malty aftertaste.

Nice color but thin head. Aroma is a little malty and weird. The flavor lets you know that it’s not an amber, my first thought. The oldish taste is there with some alcohol too, but pretty good.

Sampled at the brewery during GABF. Very dark brown and opaque with a nice off white head. Heavy malty flavor with a syrupy hint of vanilla. Something in the finish just turns me off. Malty aroma with some kind of syrupy malt hint that, again, doesn’t do it for me. Creamy coating mouth feel.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Don’t have notes on the nose, but the flavor is weak nuts, darker fruits and winterish spices. Very slick and water however, which is in contrast to how it looks and seems like it should taste.

pours a dark brown, darker than i thought it was going to be, very porter like with coffee and chocolate tastes. if it wasn’t for the unpleasant finish it would rate higher

clong83 (285) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 13, 2007
I get a hodgepodge of flat, caramel-like syrupy flavors. Very heavy on the palate, and not in a good way. Also has an odd metallic tinge to it. I was very disappointed in this beer, not a fan.

Bottle courtesy of tjthresh. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells nutty and spicy with some dark fruit. Tastes of caramel and molasses.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Pours a clear burgundy-brown (garnet when held to light) with one finger of pitted, creamy, tan head which reduces to a thin layer at the surface. The nose is a muted hodgepodge of light chocolate, dark fruit (almost like a weak barley wine), faint nuttiness and the spicy essence of mincemeat. Individually any one of those notes would be pleasing, but together they seem a bit muddled. Medium-bodied and slick, upon swallowing, your tongue is stripped of moisture, forcing you to take another sip and repeat. The flavor is decidedly more integrated than the nose. Toasted bready malt with light chocolate notes and a solid backing of spice (mincemeat) that pulls everything together and finishes with a clean, dry, slightly warming finish. This is actually a pretty nice cool weather beer, and it makes me think of sitting on the porch and watching leaves as they fall from the trees to join there brethren on the lawn.

Meh....So this isnt an octoberfest. But I admit this bew does remind me of Autum. Dark brown in color....not much scent. The flavor is slightly bitter with alcohol and malty nuts. I like this better than I thought I would. ITs interesting to try once but not something I would enjoy regularly.
