3.58/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a Ppeworks snifter.

A- pours a muddy dark amber with a 1" light tan head. Some blotches of lacing remain on the glass.

S- pumpkin-like aroma, cinnamon, vanilla and some light clove.

T- cinnamon, sweet potato/pumpkin, clove and vanilla.

M- medium body and carbonation. Smooth and has a slight dry finish.

O- just ok for me. Again reminds of a pumpkin beer with the spices in it.

(Served in a tulip glass)
Batch #7
A- This beer pours a murky caramel body with ¾ of the glass full of rocky beige head that last a good bit. There is a strong carbonation of tiny bubbles boiling to the surface.

S- The flinty aroma has a light spice cinnamon quality with a raw coconut hint turning into a cherry syrup quality in the finish.

T- The odd mix of sweet nougat with some clove and caramel hint is muddled with a starchy hint of sweet potato. There is a dry woody spice taste in the finish which is a bit dry in itself.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a scrubbing fizz in the finish but no alcohol heat noticed.

O- The flavors are drab and all muddled together and it doesn’t really have any stand out malt or hop of spice flavors. Even a bit of alcohol would help add some character to this beer.

1.71/5  rDev -52%
look: 1.75 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Poured a 22 oz. bomber slowly into 2 separate pint glasses. First glass had a clearer, yet still cloudy, deep brown color. Second glass was much more cloudy (due to the sediment resting at the bottom of the bottle). This review is based on the first glass.

A - A musty, dark caramel brown appearance with lots of carbonation. Foamy head, but dissipates quickly.
S - Spicy, herbal aroma with hints of cinnamon and clove. The description sounds pleasant, but the smell itself is not very appealing.
T - First sip left impressions of strong alcoholic tastes, but was followed by a clove-y herbal after taste.
M - Thick, foamy feel. A slight burn on the tongue and roof of the mouth.
O - Description on the bottle reads "Inspired by the Puerto Rican dessert of the same name, this ale is brewed with the dishes' core ingredients; sweet potatoes, cinnamon, clove, vanilla, and toasted coconut, and is an equatorial delight". The cinnamon and clove tastes are so pronounced that it drowns out any presence of vanilla or coconut (which I was most looking forward to) on the palate and makes it almost undrinkable. Not a beer I would buy again; drain-poured after reviewing.

3.66/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

22 oz. bottle poured into a Founders snifter. Batch #89.

Appearance: Pours a murky rust color with a thin beige head, which dissipated quickly into lacing.

Smell: CInnamon and clove are very strong up front, with distinct sweet potato aroma and some vanilla and caramel. Smells rich and heavy. I'm not getting the coconut as much, but there's a lot going on here.

Taste: Very big on the spices, rich caramel, sweet potato. It comes of like an imperial pumpkin ale (with sweet potato instead of pumpkin, of course). Still not really picking up the coconut. There's a bittering hop bite on the finish that's a little weird when combined with the spiced dessert beer-type flavor profile.

Mouthfeel: Not quite as heavy as I would expect from the flavor profile. I'd call it medium bodied, with a very noticeable carbonation.

Overall: Between this and the Pastrami on Rye, Pipeworks definitely puts out some bizarre stuff from time to time (which I love). This is a very interesting beer and I'm certainly glad I bought it, but it doesn't quite impress me as much as the Pastrami on Rye did.
