Poured a dark brown color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, some roast, yam, and light spices. Taste of caramel, roasted malts, starch, wood, and a dry finish. TheBeerGod (6292) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 4, 2011
Bottle. Dark mahogany pour with a short tan head. Strong lemony notes in the aroma with herbal notes and toasted malt. Taste is herbal and lemony with toasted malt, soft pumpkin, toasted caramel, lemon drops, and mint. Body is light-medium with a soft carbonation. Ends with more herbal notes, flowers, lemon drops, toasted malt, toasted caramel and fruit notes. TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2011
12 oz bottle. Clear brown with a pocked head. Nose is lemon toffee and celery with the pumpkin and yam adding a subtle sweetness. Crisp and dry medium light with zesty carb finishing a bit pulpy. Taste is lemon peel, ginger ale, parsley and faint yam. Somehow this comes of as an IPA for me. Refreshing. dinkle50 (1596) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Dark red color with a single finger head which faded quick. Smell is sweet potatoes with marshmallows. Creamy mouth feel. There is some bitterness to the taste, but lots of sweetness. Caramel, pumpkin & sweet potato all pop up in the taste. This beer is super unique and well done. deanso (10353) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - DEC 3, 2011
on tap at the Pony Bar, New York.
Thin white head. Clear amber pour. Interesting flavour. Hard to describe.
Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Pours clear amber brown with off-white foam. Smells lightly sweet and bitter of brown sugar and tubers. Tastes bitter with hints of yam and brown sugar. BOLTZ7555 (3028) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Chestnut pour with an eggshell/tan head. Aroma of caramel, toasted malt, light cinnamon...subtle all around. Flavor is fairly bland with a little toffee, spice, and nuttiness. Medium mouthfeel...feel let down by all three brewers. Sickboy282 (1116) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Pours a deep brown/amber hue with a light white head. Aromas of roasted nuts, a touch of oak and some dirt. Mouth feel is medium bodied with a nice velvety finish. Flavors of hazelnuts, oats, a mild cinnamon/spice note, but very mild. Not really digging this. Well brewed, but not a brew that I’d go back to. Slipstream (2732) - USA - DEC 2, 2011
On draft at The Pony Bar. It is nice to see a new brew from Stone (this was a collaboration, of course). Fine floral aroma. It tastes like a good PA, with some vegetal and spicy hints, like an APA mixed with some pumpkin ale. The pale ale flavors come thru more clearly. Good. jcweaver (770) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear mahogany with a medium tan head. Aroma is earthy with notes of pumpkin and subtle spices (though not your typical pumpkin pie spices). Maybe a hint of citrus in the nose also. Initial flavors are roasted malts/grains, pumpkin and the birch bark. Mid palate are some earthy spices followed by a slightly citrusy finish. A unique and complex brew.
