3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. The pour was a hazy orange with a slight brown tint and had a thin (less than 1 finger) white frothy head that dissipated quickly, which in turn do not produce any significant lacing.
The aroma was of a light bread malt and a sweet doughy yeast with hints of nutmeg, coriander, brown sugar, cinnamon, clove, banana, a bit of citrus and a infusion of tea.
The taste was malty and very sweet with hints of nutmeg, brown sugar and banana early on with the flavor getting a getting a bit spicier with notes of coriander, clove, a mild black tea presence and a nice dose of citrus (lemon I believe) at the end. The flavor lasted only a short while after the swallow with a nice smooth spicy finish.
Mouthfeel was just about medium in body and rather creamy in texture with a very mild carbonation.
Overall a very sweet tasting brew with a lot of the fall spices, very reminiscent of a Pumpkin Ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Multiple bottles in 2010, Shared this one with Pat, pours hazy orange with a thicker sized foam. Smell and taste are lemon lime juniper, cinnamon, german malt, cardamom, all spice, and other dark earthy notes. Probably over spiced even for the ingredients but Ive always liked Indian profiles especially Hashish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear amber color. Aromas of pine/malts and a touch of citrus/berries. Flavor is a little different. I thought it would be more pine tasting. A little berry flavor and some hop bitterness near the end.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - good size foamy head, hazy burnt orange color with lots of "floaties" (maybe bad poor?), big fruity/berry aroma and flavor, moderate spice (from the tea I guess), a little different but in a good way overall

Clear Amber color. $12.99/750ml is pricey versus alternatives in this market. Just not true to original style.
