wedgie9 (1792) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Tasted on 11/12/11 from a 12oz bottle purchased at Lush Roscoe. Pours a nearly opaque dark amber with a thick tan head that slowly recedes to an even layer of lace. The nose is spicy and herbal with anise, cinnamon, nutmeg, lightly earthy yeast, and bread malt. The flavor is spiced and herbal with the same cinnamon, nutmeg, and malty bread bitterness. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long spiced cinnamon and nutmeg finish.

Chuckaduck (605) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Pours dark brown with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma is spicy, grassy, hay, dark fruit, floral and some caramel malt on the back end. Flavor is grassy, spicy, crisp, refreshing, wheat with a mild bitter finish. Very clean mouth feel with light carbonation. This is a really nice beer. I like it.

Bottle thanks to thome50. Poured brown with ruby hues and an off white head. Aroma was pumpkin, roots, earth, dirt, and spice. Flavor was dirt, earth, spice, and a slight floral note. Body seemed kinda thin.

ketchepillar (1026) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - NOV 8, 2011
Bottle from Jubilation. Pours a medium brown with little head. Aroma is bready with a bit of light herbiness (mint, lemon). Flavor has more bread and some molasses. The pumpkin is detectable, but that’s about it. The yam actually affects the flavor-and even more surprisingly, it’s kinda good. I can’t distinguish a number of the spices that come through in the finish, but they’re quite good for the most part. Oddly enough, it’s a bit chalky.

daknole (8537) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 8, 2011
Cloudy brownish pour, creamy head. Loads of spices in the nose, roasted pumpkin, candi sugar, syrup and some gingery notes. Sweet flavor, spicy, yeast, tons goin on in this one and in a pretty good way. Tap at the Bruery Provisions on my crazy birthday San Diego trip with Storminorman.

Atom (1212) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 7, 2011
12oz bottle pours a murky amber/brown with a small khaki head. Aroma of maple/molasses, herbal lemon, and spices. Taste of lemon grass, spice, slight smokiness, molasses, bittersweet burnt sugar, and fennel. Pretty interesting flavors going on here.

HonkeyBra (3108) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 7, 2011
12 oz bottle. Dark, cola brown pour, very small off white head. Not sure what this is. Seems to have an absolute mess of ingredients. Aroma of menthol, bark, and what I imagine chocolate smelled like hundreds of years ago before there were health code law regulating things that are supposed to be ingested. Fallen leaves. There is some tobacco and slight menthol/nyquil aroma as well. That said, it’s not bad. Just quite different. Flavor is roast, charred fruit, and oak. Lots of tobacco. Earthiness and a slight medicinal quality peaks through. It tastes like I’m running with my mouth open during the fall. Slick bodied. I’m really surprised by this. I wasn’t expecting much but it was solid.

Wow, way better than I anticipated! I let it warm a bit out of the fridge. Poured with a nice sized, foamy, frothy, thick, tan head that soon settles to a thin cover and some lace. Color is a clear deep dark, brown red with lots of tiny bubble trails. Aroma is malt, roast, spice, toffee, caramel. Flavor is like nose but all those characteristics stand out more plus a perfect amount of carbonic tang. Body and carbonation are excellent. Finish is like flavor, of average duration, and leaving me with the desire for another sip. Very good drinking beer; maybe the best vegetable/spice beer I’ve ever had.
