2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. It pours a deep copper red with a thin head. It looks very inviting with a rich red color. The smell is malty with a hint of caramel and alcohol. Subtle floral hop aroma present, but the smell is predominantly malt. It isn’t super fragrant. The spices show up in the flavor. There is a small dicetyl taste here as well. Overall it tastes very much like a pumpkin beer. The cinnamon is pretty noticeable. The finish has a nice spicy bite, but there is a little metallic aftertaste that did not sit well with me. It is an interesting brew. I see why it is labelled as a vegetable beer due to its affinity ot pumpkin beer. It OK once of twice a year.
From old tasting notes. Reddish brown color with a huge beige head. Delicious spicy nutmeg aroma. Zesty toasted malt flavor with hints of cocoa and cinnamon. Good hop flavor. Dry finish and aftertaste. Ferris (16066) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2017

Got this on sale. Not overly bitter or spicy. Nice aroma but OK taste. May drink again only if I don’t have a better option. ChrisOfstad (100) - Hamar, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2017

Tap sample at beerbistro. Coppery orange, translucent, smallish beige head. Nose of rather subdued malts and spiciness, not what I was expecting. Tastes more Christmasy but the watery mouthfeel ruins my overall impression. Cinnamon and cuminseed (which isn’t there...) flavour perhaps most dominant, a tiny hint of ginger. I wouldnt consider this a very good beer, nor a Bock, as it was labelled in the menu. Sub-par yet in itself not disastrous nor totally undrinkable... Wouldn’t want a whole bottle though!

Clear dark caramel colour, light tan head. Spicy aroma, full of cinnamon, ginger, orange, green herbs and hops. Mild sweet taste, hints of caramel, ginger, hops and yeast. Light body, bitter aftertaste, fizzy carbonation. Quite good and refreshing. Sarlacc83 (2287) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 26, 2017
A: Dark caramel that’s near to red. Creme color head.
N: Toffee, peppercorn, fall leaves, earth, substantial grapefruit, but not in a pleasant way, cracker, some green apple, cherry, and bark.
T: Sweet, bitter, and slightly lactic.
M: Medium light body, no alcohol, crisp carbonation.
O: It’s OK. Nothing to write home about and certainly not in the same zip code as Jubel. unclefrito62 (303) - Stow, Ohio, USA - JAN 8, 2017
