2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle sample. Clear amber pour, a little carbonation and an aroma of overpowering clove and cinnamon. Flavor was also plenty of spice, coriander, cinnamon, etc. Not a big fan of this one, too sweet and way too much spice.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
No question this is a spiced beer. Lots of cinnamon. I also smell cloves and nutmeg. Flavor of fruit loops in the aftertaste. A red beer. The alcohol is too high, and the body could be a little heavier. Not a bad effort, but these guys can do better.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Low but lasting creamy off-white head. Clear red brown body. Powerful cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg aroma. Cinnamon dominates both aroma and flavor whereas the ginger and nutmeg is more subdued. The general impression is a rather sweet beer with little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a long spicy aftertaste.

I saw that this is marked as a spice vegetable beer. Those have been some of my least favorite beers to date.
But I will give this a try.
The pour is fairly opaque deep mahogany brown, with a small tan head. The aroma is strong, very spicy...Nutmeg, some ginger, vanilla, sweet, and cinnamon. The taste is everything the aroma leads to expect. The beer is medium bodied, mild hops and slightly roasty malts. Very enjoyable. I think this is beer I will buy again.
