Picked this up in Athens, Georgia. Five Points Bottle Shop, 22 oz. Plus, as an added bonus it was only $2.50! Nice fluffy head that fades away to a nice thin head that sits on top of a deep dark brown translucent beer. Looks like a friggin good spice/herb/vegetable to me. Sweet aroma, but I am a bit upset that the spices donít hit my nose harder. If this is a spice/herb/vegetable beer then I am a little confused as to where the spices are, at least, in the aroma. Anyways, a semi-sweet caramel aroma, and that is about it. Ok, now I am picking up a SLIGHT spice aroma, but nothing special. The flavor was a surprise. Very sweet sugar/malt flavor. Slight spice flavor, but really nothing special. Very big malt taste, but the spices are far too muted for me to give this a great rating. Slight bittering hop at the end, with a slight spice tingle, but not enough to save this beer. Very smooth texture.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2009 Bottle pours an off-white, sticky lacing head and the body is a beautiful clear amber. Smells of caramel, barley, some hops, and butter. Flavors abound of caramel, cocoa, toffee, little nut, and some spices. Nice body.

at first sip it brings a vast assortment of dark flavor with lots of hazelnut, maple syrup and caramel. it sort of drags out at the end. still beer goes all the way with a bit of astringent at the finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent sized head of small and dense bubbles. Very weak aroma with a bit of spices and dry flowery malts. Strange that the aroma is so weak. Color is a nice crimson brown. Wow, not the flavor that I expected. A big slap of vanilla up front. Loads of soft chewy malts, lots of flowers, some more spices and as Pastor said malted milk balls. A very unexpected flavor combination when compared to the aroma. Finishes sweet and pasty with lingering soft malts and vanilla. A unusual brew.
