Growler. Pours dark brown. Nose is full of spices including, cinnamon, cardamom, clove, almost like chai. Flavor is roasty with all the spices flavors coming out as well. Nice balance between the roast and the spice. Dry finish. Good beer.

JaBier (4831) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2011
On tap at CCB on 4/28/11. Pitch black pour with a thick tan/almost brown head. Strong spicy nose of ginger, nutmeg, allspice and slight roast. Flavor is cinnamon, roast, coffee and ginger before a bitter chocolate finish. Very solid. Could use just a little less spice to let the other flavors shine through though.

dchmela (2614) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 29, 2011
Draft at Cigar City. Dark brownish red pour with a thin off white head. Huge aroma of cinnamon, clove, ginger and roasted grain. Smooth roasted grain taste with many of the mentioned flavors peaking though. Well balanced roasted grain and spice with a nice complexity.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2011
Draft @ CCB. Near black pour with ruby highlights and a beige head. Spicy roasted nose, lots of anise and clove. Medium body with lively carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is dry and roasted, lots of spice, clove, cinnamon, anise and light cocoa notes. I didn’t really enjoy this one, I found the spice profile over bearing.

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 26, 2011
On tap Cigar City pouring mahogany with mocha head. The aroma is rich and spicy and has black licorice, graham cracker, molasses, dark roasted malts and rounded out on the earthy side. The taste is smooth and a bit thin with spicy hops, spicy black licorice, earthiness, a mild amount of various spices, dark roasted malts and then bleeding into near burnt or charred malts. Easy drinkin’ yum.

On tap at CC. Dark brown pour. I’m sure you can figure out the nose. Cocoa, roasted malt, and spices dominated the taste..

markwise (4427) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 14, 2011
On draft at Hunahpu Day 2011. Pours a dark Patio Tools brown with an off-white head. Nose is a bit of dry roast, earth, a hint of unsweet cocoa, and chai spices- vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a light hint of sugar. Flavor is similar with the spices taking a back seat to some of the dry stout qualities. A bit of cocoa, roast, and earth dominate the vanilla, cinnamon, and spices of the East India part. Very enjoyable, but not as thick as a regular Patio Tools.
