Pours a reddish brown color. Has notes of spices in the aroma. Taste has notes of spices, pumpkin and cinnamon. I noticed more taste in the inital swallow. However, the more i drank, the more taste seemed to dissipate and become watered down.

Pours a reddish brown mahogany color. Aroma of spiced herb, a slight odor of yams and pumpkins. Taste is a slight lemon zest mixed with a spice vegetable mix in the initial swallow. The taste disappears quickly then is refreshing after you’re done.

Cola pour, moderate head. Needs about 10 minutes to open up and warm, and then the spice aromas and flavors begin to emerge. Gently sweet, quaffable at 5% and not the least sticky, minimal hop presence, herbal not as herbal hops but in a spices-added sort of way. Easy to drink and tasty with a subtle bitter close that may be coming from the birch bark. Interesting and enjoyable (and +1 to overall for not making this another 11% abv experiment).

12 ounce bottle. Dark reddish brown color. Small creamy tan head. Spicy roasted malt nosewith hints baked yams and molasses. First taste is of molasses, fennel and pumpkin seeds. Lightly sweet with a light to medium body and creamy mouthfeel. Finish is dry and brief. Overall, a tasty effort that is very drinkable and understated.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a dark amber/chestnut brown color with golden orange edges and a one finger light beige head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks of lace left behind.
Sweet, slightly spicy aroma with lots of pumpkin, autumnal spice and toasted malt. Pumpkin purée along with cinnamon, clove and ginger followed by caramel, toast and hazelnut.
Medium bodied with a dry herbal presence that lingers throughout into a medicinal finish. Not really all that sweet with more of a vegetal pumpkin/yam presence with some dry, zesty spice. Hints of toasted pumpkin seed, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and clove followed by some caramel, toast, rye and a strange medicinal finish. Kind of a mess.

Pours a deep amber with an thin tan head and lacing. The aroma is lighter than I expected, but it has lots of interesting spices, and the lemon verbena is obvious and what I think is the fenugreek. The spices are all over the flavor with the yams and pumpkins appearing in the middle and a mild apic aftertaste.

Aroma is complex and rich. Toasted nutmeg, fig, brown sugar, maple syrup, fresh earth, even some rhubarb. Pours deep burgundy with a weaker head. Fine balance of sweet and sour, carbonation okay to weak with a sticky texture. Overall, it missed my expectations. That nose sets you up for flavor that doesn’t match. Still, glad I tried it. Always like to experience Stone’s collaborations.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not what I expected when reading the bottle... Pours red-brown with small tan head. Aroma of licorice, figs, smoke, wood and a hint of malt. Taste is light and towards the sweet, but builds up towards the finish with a very subtle bitterness. Finish is quite abrupt, though, and the body is a little too sticky for my taste.
