Clear dark red - brown beer. Good pale tan head. Light fresh crispy palate. A refreshing strong citrus is a suprise coming off a dark beer! Lemongrass and a touch of lime. A cream - soda kinda cream vanilla. Minerals. Semi dry finish. Refreshing.

Ibrew2or3 (7077) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 2, 2013
12oz bottle pours clear brown with ruby red hues and a semi loose tan head of foam. The aroma offers up a little bit of dark roasted malts and coffee flowing into ginger-ish sort of herbal notes and a berry sensation. The taste moves from moderately roasted malts and then to a bit of berry, cherry and raisin fruitiness. Above that is a sort of spicy woodnote and maybe some ginger root. At times it seems a little chocolate like and coconut cut with very thin lemon peel like notes. Pretty nice but it seems to struggle to hold all of the flavors together.

Another year old bottle sitting at Ryan and Casey Liquors Greenfield, MA. Paid $3.75 for a 12 oz. bottle. Got it because I missed it when originally released. Pours a dark brown color with no head at all. Aroma is very herbal with ginger, sweet potato and the odd spices that that bottle speaks of. Similar to a pumpkin beer, yet has a sweet potato yam flavor without question. Not bad for the age. I would say this may have diminished just a bit after all this time. Glad I had a chance to try it.

12 oz. bottle from Mega Liqour 8, Alhambra, CA. Brown color. Off white head (not much). Aroma’s: (sweet) herbs, slightly medicinal, verbena?, slightly toasted. Flavor is roasted, medium sweet, herbal. Light bodied. Finishes with a herbal bitterness. Interesting for sure.

Bottle to snifter. Looks good; a fairly opaque brownish-black with fluffy light neigh head that dissipates into lacing fairly quickly. Smells of pumpkin, spices, and citrus. Tastes like it smells with an. Average mouthfeel. Interesting, and not in a bad way.

Ferris (4968) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle - Toasted malts, chocolate and spices. Complex but sweet and pleasant nose much like gingerbread. Dark brown and clear with a off white head. Pumpkin, molasses and gingerbread. Mellow bitterness, a great dark pumpkin beer.

SDalkoholic (2179) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Bottle from Stone Brewing in South Park: Poured a dark amber hue with a tiny formation of foam head. The aroma was phenomenal with a pure scent of herbs perhaps sage, and has an abundant aroma of roast coffee bean or strong fragrant black tea. As for the drink, a smooth and well balanced blend of unknown flavors probably due to the foreign ingredients such as fenugreek, lemon verbena, and birch bark really make this an easily quaffable beer yet a flavorful and memorable beer recipe. Although, it does come across as a little watery in the finish, it still leaves behind a roasted aftertaste and in itself is a truly unique concept.

SHIG (3637) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle: poured a dark brown with an off white head. Aroma is weird mix of veggie and spices. Taste is caramel malts, veggie, and sweet finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maekchu (2283) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 17, 2012
Bottle from Asahiya. Flowery aroma, with miso notes. Dark brown, clear, very little head. The pumpkin is there, the spices even more; mid goes tangy and bitter, with some prune and spices (fenugreek!, birch bark); finish is sweet and satisfying. Thin-medium bosy. I’m not a big fan of pumpkin brews, but this one is fine.
