3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a minimally hazy amber color with one finger head and medium to heavy lacing . Modestly sweet up front, spicy. Toasted malt. Hint of herbal hops. Definite coffee notes, perhaps some coriander. Medium bodied with lively carbonation, but not excessive. Long mildly bitter finish. This is a unique beer. I really like it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Medium coffee aroma, with hints of sweetness, toasted nuts. Flavor follows suit with a complex medley of earthiness, coffee, and smooth nut flavors. Delicate is a fair description, and the complexity and drinkable is impressive.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 Sampled from bottle @ The Hague tasting. Hazy orange color, small beige head. Smell and taste malts, smoke, ash, earth, tea. Decent I’d say. But I don’t get why this is a spice/herb/vegetable...

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber with a white, thin, lacy, lasting ring, head. Smells interesting, mocha, wood, caramel, and a bit of peach under it all. Medium oily body. Tastes of caramel, woodiness, ash, and a bit of overripe fruit. Peach and apples. Good effort but not amazing.
