3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 don’t 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.
