GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Tap at Duckaw Arundel Mills. Pours a low haze deeper amber. Medium off white head. Good retention. Nose is mega perfumey with huge sage. Some very musty attic notes. Big rose hips and grandmas perfume. Interesting... Taste is dry, moderately bitter, loads of sage and rosemary herbal bitterness. Not bad. Palate is slightly soapy and lavender perfume heavy. A bit papery. Lacing is thick and complete. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle from State Line. Pours a clear amber color with a thin white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of huge, big spice, nutmeg, nutty notes, wheat and floral notes. Taste of toasted wheat, cereal notes, citrus and spice. Medium bodied.

Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2012
A unique beer to be sure due to the interesting spice notes. Burnt orange in color with fizzy head that goes away. The spice aroma jumps out of the glass at you, but isnt overwhelming in the taste. Mouth feel is a bit too light for something with such spice, but decent overall.

Ridiculous spices in this one... Flavor is dominated by all the spices, interesting, but wouldnt drink more than one

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a clear copper color with a small head of loose white bubbles. The nose leans heavy on the spice, particularly the chamomile and grains of paradise. Relatively light on the tongue with an oily feel. All those spices really come through on the tongue giving it a sort of potpourri sort of taste. Mysterious indeed, but not anything I would want a whole lot of.

From the tap poured a dark amber color with a fair amount of head. Light spicy malty flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

kindacold (235) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Pours clear amber, no head. Smells light and sweet. Tastes almost like apple and pear with some cinnamon, but more cider-like than beer-like. Distinct maltiness at the end. Clean finish.

climberbob (455) - Virginia, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Aromas of caramel, resin, spruce, vanilla, raisin. Pours dark amber with little head and low carbonation. Medium, sweet tasting beer with a hint of cardamon but too much chamomile and a slightly unpleasant and flat aftertaste.
