Review based on a bottle purchased in March 2013, so a bit of age on it.
Poured a dark brown with no head and no lacing. Scents of roast malt, caramel, slight soy sauce and a bit of brown sugar. Flavor is no where near as sweet as the scent suggested. Lots of roasted malt throughout, with a sort of herbal quality on the finish. I can't say I can detect any of the individual ingredients (toasted fenugreek, yam, pumpkin, lemon verbena, birch bark) but I feel that the herbs and birch bark contribute to the herbal finish. A slight sweetness is present, but not a large part of the beer. Mouthfeel is thin and light with a low level of carbonation. Not a bad beer for something this old. It doesn't seem oxidized, gone to soy sauce or stale.
