3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Really unusual beer; I’m not sure I like it necessarily, but I don’t dislike it, and am more intrigued than anything. Pours with a fizzy, full head. Flavor is yams, port, fall spices; sort of a sour taste. It has a long aftertaste that fills the mouth. The aroma is somewhat better than the flavor. Dry in the finish. I’m not sure how much I could drink, but I find this more interesting than most of the pumpkin beers I’ve had. (10/18/12 at Total Wine IPA beer tasting class w/Tony.)

Sampled at the Societe Party 2016. It poured a dark mahogany color with a tan head. The aroma was of spices, malts, pumpkin, wood and caramel. The taste was similar to the aroma with some yams, malts, caramel, spices and syrup. Interesting.

Draft 10 oz pour at Malt and Vine. Paid almost as much for this as the bottle is, because I’m an idiot. Bright cloudy orange pour with a thin fizz head. Big time sweet aroma with nape and vanilla. Sugar sweet, maple, brown sugar, and a cool finish. Interesting.

Bouteille de 750ml, capsule métallique. Premier nez qui semble contaminé. Le liquide semble mince. La robe est cuivrée avec une mousse crémeuse épaisse et beige. Elle semble vouloir persister. Une bouche qui goûte les épices avec une purée de patate douce, pour amateur.

Sweet and complex aroma and taste, but very much up my alley. Heavy on the sweet components - caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, maple syrup - with a very smooth mouthfeel. Excellent.

Bomber thanks to one of the three cousins in the bario. Leafy nose. Light booze upfront and syrupy. Slight spice and milk chocolate.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Murky amber color with beige head. Aroma is spicy, somehow like a pumpkin pie. I get cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. Taste follows with the same spices and sweet malts. Aftertaste is more bitter but still spicy. Slightly boozy but overall quite enjoyable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: pours with a very large light tan head, the beer is a very cloudy dark amber color, head settles into a nice density
Aroma: plum, bread, a bit faint
Taste: mild sweetness, bitterness on the finish, plum,
Palate: soft carbonation, heavy mouthfeel, bitter aftertaste
Overall: drinks like a trappist beer almost, hides the very high abv decently, not bad but I don't need another
