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.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours dark amber with a small, beige head. The aroma is brown sugar, thyme, coriander, and a little roasted malts. The flavor is subdued sweetness and savory. The palate is medium, sticky, grainy, and clingy. Overall, this is an interesting beer, but not the best flavor.
