3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I find 2 things very intreging about this beer, that it is reall 9.5% and its brewed with a 2:1 ratio honey per # of malt, that is alot.
I popped this open thinking it was just a spiced session lager, there is all the spice in aroma not too much head.Mahogaony color, slick smooth mouthfeel .
I was detecting some vanilla but suspect it is from the honey,the rest is a big carmelly sweetness with lots of orange notes and a semi balanced bittering with herbal earthiness, a little bit of chocolate. It has a very nice finish though, but the rest seems a bit carmelly barleywineish that maybe could use some more herbal bittering to balance the thick malt.
It seemed pretty pumpkiny at first but then gets pretty barleywineish. You end up with a pretty sticky sweet mouth in the very end.

dark amber-orange hues with a dash of tan head.Nose is very aromatic,seasonal spices like pumpkin pie and spiced apples.Too bad the flavor isn’t quite as good as the aroma.the orange and spices come out but the brew looses itself somewhere.

Bottle. Nice beer. This brew would be cool to age in rum barrels. Warms my tummy.

Pours a dark amber with a white head and an aroma that is stronly spicey. The flavor has a slight malty sweetness and is predominately spicey with ginger, cinammon, and orange peel.

They definitely weren’t kidding about the spice. Reddish amber pour with a tiny white head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice, maybe a dash of clove. Flavor is malty and spicy, rich with the aforementioned spices ... almost too spicy, in fact. Sweetness up front with a light, bittersweet finish. Good body and mouthfeel. Not a bad little holiday beer.

Bottle wk. 3 of Nov. 2011. Pours clear ruby/garnet with a small creamy beige head. Aromas of cinnamon and nutmeg, apples and apple pie spice, and brown sugar. Bitter-ish grass with nutmeg and cinnamon, trending into sweet brown sugar. Average.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2005 Bottle. Pours a cloudy brown with nice head and lacing. Smells of ginger, cinnamon, and malt. Taste is like a liquidfied iced gingerbread cookie with honey and a bit of acidic orange in the background. Hides the alcohol REALLY well. This was almost a drain pourer. Too many spices thrown into this one.

It wasn’t all that bad….. Overly spiced actually I think it was just their Pumpkin Lager with more malt and extreme spices.
Rich mahogany body, syrupy looking body, small light tan head too assist. The aroma is a spice bin of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, orange zest, and pumpkin. The flavor is similar but with a sweet, dry, warming finish. A respectable medium palate and random sheets of lacing.
Like I mentioned, I think it’s just the Pumpkin Lager with a ampped ABV%.

This is the perfect beer for the holiday season. Spices are well balanced with sweetness of the honey. This is similiar to Lakefronts Pumpkin Lager.

On tap at Capone’s. Pours an amber color with an off white head. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel, pine, and earthiness. Sweet resinsy, caramel taste, with some grapefruit notes mixed in. Really excellent. Has the characteristics of a hoppy red ale.
