3.03/5 rDev -17.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Poured into the tulip from a 22oz bottle.
Pours a nice dark copper color with some slight haze. There is a nice half inch head that is off-white. It is of medium density and there are some chunkier bubbles sprinkled around.
Aroma of christmas. :) Starts off with gingerbread notes and some nutmeg. There is definitely some nice sweetness in the nose. Some vanilla is present. There is also some herbal notes in the nose. Quite interesting.
Taste starts off with the nutmeg and sweet potato notes. Then some metallic notes come up as well as some grassy and herbal hop notes. Quite a bitter middle. Mouthfeel is a bit light. Not that good to me. I can't get over the metallic notes. Mouthfeel is a bit thin for the style and flavor profile.
Overall. Probably the first disappointment from 4 Hands IMO. It is a good attempt but personally there is some metallic notes and I cant seem to appreciate the mix of the spice sweetness with the herbal hop notes.

3.5/5 rDev -5.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Up from Jacksonville FL and stopped in at the brewery.
A: single finger head with excellent lacing on a hazy orange and amber body.
S: brown sugar, pumpkin, hint of cinnamon and nutmeg.
T: sweet caramel, brown sugar, spices, and even some candy sugar with a surprisingly bitter finish which comes very late.
M: this one is a thin with light to moderate carbonation.
Overall: clean but a bit watery. I like the idea of doing something different from a pumpkin beer for a seasonal.
Serving type: on-tap

A- Pours a hazy amber-golden color. Fairly large head forms and retains very well. Lacing is also pretty good on this dense, frothy head. Sort of glows when any light is behind it because of the color and haze.
S- Sweet potatoes, vanilla, and other sweet Thanksgiving scents hit the nose first. Spice and cinnamon are next up and intermingle with the sweet vegetable and vanilla smells. Basically, it smells like a kitchen on Thanksgiving.
T- Nutmeg is the dominant flavor right off the bat before moving into the sweet potato flavor. The sweet potato flavor in a beer is interesting and somewhat dry. The vanilla mixes in with the rest of the flavors before moving back to a more bitter version of the sweet potato with maybe a hint of the pecan wood in there too. Lingering nutmeg finishes the drink.
M- Kind of nondescript here. Medium weight and carbonation. Not overly smooth, but not hard to drink either.
Overall, this is a beer that you like if you like the pumpkin/fall beer styles, and if you don't, you probably don't like it. It's not too bad for me; somewhere in between a pumpkin beer and an octoberfest.
