hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale Łber alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 12, 2009
bottle from zathrus13... dark blackish red pour with a soft tan and webby lacing. odd aroma... not unpleasant, just unexpected and not one iíve smelled before... roasted grain, chocolate, molasses, nutty cream, a little smoke and a bunch of ginger. there is a bunch of fresh ginger flavor in front of everything else... flowers, roast, cream, molasses and faint chocolate with a weird sweet versus spicy finish. throw in some coffee on the aftertaste and get even more confused... the body is medium. the mouth feel is simultaneously creamy and sharp from the spicy ginger. 7/3/7/4/14/3.5

12oz bottle thanks to a couple of generous traders. Pours dark, dark brown with a small tan head that stays on as a small cap and leaves decent lacing. The aroma really caught me off guard and I really donít know how to categorize it. Itís dominated by the ginger which melds interestingly with the sweetish chocolate malts underneath. Very interesting nose. The taste actually follows the nose which means to say that there are lots of very different tastes to take it. There is certainly a bit of the underlying dark malts and chocolate but the ginger really throws the taste buds for a loop and the finish is spicy and sweet. The mouthfeel is medium bodied (light if you actually think this is an impy stout) with good carbonation. This is certainly an interesting attempt by Weyerbacher and while Iím not sure everything comes together perfectly, I always love to try something this original. Marks for creativity here.

alobar (2776) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2009
Dark brown with a cream-colored head. Spicy aroma with some chocolate and a little ginger. Flavor of cinnamon, ginger and molasses. If you like a bitter spicy edge, youíll enjoy this beer.

Bottle shared by Hophead22. Pours a dark brown with a thin brown film of a head. Aroma is nice chocolate and cinnamon, some dark fruits and booze. Flavor is roasty with very little sweetness. Some coffee and chocolate is there as well as spice. Decent full body with low carbonation.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2009 12oz bottle from zathrus13. Very black, dark brown, with very little head. Lots of sweet spice in the aroma. Roasty malts, sweet spices, cinnamon and whatnot, very interesting. Thanks Jeff.

Bottle. Got this one in a trade. I was presently surprised with this one. It was incredibly sweet. I have always been a little weary about spice beers, but this one didnít disappoint.

Dorwart (2374) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 21, 2009
About a 1 inch thich head of light brown bubbles. Very dense and creamy. Sweet rootbeer aroma with some dark fruit, chocolate and dark roasted malts. Minor bit of spice in there too. Color is a very dark brown. Very malty and roasty with some licorice, mild spice again, molasses and some ginger. Flavor is all over the place but still pretty good. Light alcohol presence that warms the stomach. Finishes malty and earthy with a lingering bit of spice. The cinnamon finally showed up. A decent experiment.

DocLock (7860) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2009
Bottle from Caponeís sampled over X-mas 2008. Pours very deep brown with 2-finger brown head. Nose is weizenbocky, with malt, banana, spice, nutmeg, molasses, cacao powder. Complex aroma. Tastes dark malty, spicy, with nutmeg, x-mas spices, hints of molasses, brown sugar, and mild rauchy notes. This one is all over the place, and evolves over time. The finish is fruity, with fig, blackberry, and more spices. Good, but I like to call this one the Tasmanian Devil of beers.

This poured a dark dark red with a small lgiht ttan head. Aroma was strange spices that I couldnt pick out,and some alcohol. Flavor was little coffee, some bitter spices, and hitns of whiskey it seemed like to me. Not what I was expecting but not bad
