wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2012 Light brown body with thin frothy head. Sweet candy aroma, red fruit, and lots of spices, nutmeg, and allspice. Flavor is very sweet but light bodied. Maple is unnoticeable until it warms and then only slightly toward the finish. The yams come through a lot like pumpkin giving some fullness to an otherwise thin body. Slightly sticky finish. It’s kind of a mess with lots of sweetness but no real focus.

Deep brown with tiny dirty white head. Spicy, caramel, syrup aromas, it really brings me the aromas of autumn leaves aromas with nice pumpkin accents. Light to moderate yeasty aromas. Taste is medium sweet. Odd, but nice one.

Barwa brunatna, piana biała trwała. Aromat i smak słodki, lekko owocowy, przypomina jabłka/gruszki w karmelu z cynamonem, melasa.

(Bottle) Pours clear red brown with big dense white head. Great aroma with ester banana dominant and peppery hints. Great palate - soft, full bodied, slightly sticky with plenty of gentle carbonation. Unusual and enjoyable taste. There’s rich caramel, peppery spice, alcohol bite. There’s a good balance between sweet and bitter with both being strongly present. Excellent unusual beer.

Red beer, faint head. You can smell the maple and there’s also a lot of toffee.

Growler from Whole Foods in Katy. Clear reddish-amber with a cream colored head. Aroma of funk, dark fruit, bubblegum, clove, and nutmeg. Tastes rich, lightly spiced and a little sweet. Fairly full bodied, quite smooth and slightly dry.
