Pours dark and thin, little head. Tastes like nothing, then sorta like dirt. Drain pour.

Pours a dark brown with a reddish tint. Real thin caramel head that dissipates quickly. Smells of lemon citrus, malt, and licorice. Tastes a mild sweetness upfront with a bitter licorice and malt finish. Really an unremarkable brew.

12oz bottle shared with mattyb83. Pours opaque brown with a minimal head. Soapy aroma with potpourri, pumpkin, and notes of a leeann chin restaurant. Literally smells like someone bathing in basin in the middle of a fast food Asian restaurant. Strangely sweet, this beer has notes of pumpkin and a weird spice profile that is quite earthy and rustic. Flavor is slightly metallic in the finish. Too bad it didn’t taste like P.F. Changs. You know, healthy stuff.

Yikes! Gave this Stone combo a shot since most of these are quite nice. This one came up short, it was like a bitter flower exploded in my mouth. Won’t get a second one of these.

Cola looking pour with very small tan head. Aroma of lemon, herbs and strong ginger. Taste is slighty citrusy, tree bark and a nasty hop finish. Pumpkin and yams are also present. This beer is a total mess in my opinion. Dont really understand the higher ratings this is getting, probably something to do with the top notch brewers in the collaboration and people thinking they should offer up a high rating. Not good at all. Yech!!!!

Beer perversion! You know how they say 2 heads are better than one? Well for this beer 3 brewers means you birth a bastard beer! No noticeable pumpkin/yam flavor.Nose and flavor are marked mostly by lemon, wood, bread, and weird herbal notes. Pretty much tastes like birch/root beer soda. Would fit nicely in the menu of a fancy Asian day spa as a healthy elixir. Watered down Palo Santo Marron. Use it as wood stain or maybe linen spray, perhaps room deodorizer. Just don’t drink it! If you are reading this BEFORE you have purchased the beer. Then don’t waste your money as I did. If your are reading this AFTER you have purchased the beer. Give it to some one you don’t like. But on a serious note. This beer is disgusting!!!!
