Pencil shavings, dried leaves aroma, very mild. Cloudy amber, firm medium cream colored head. Sweet pumpkin flavor, mild allspice notes. Weak, but serviceable. A nice diversion from the nutmeg bombs one often finds in this style.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2014 Dark reddish brownish amber with a resilient foamy cream colored head. Aroma of pumpkin, plum, caramel, lychee, spice, and light smoke. Taste is very well balanced; maltiness, bitterness, spice, smoke, and fruit flavors all in great proportion. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Very well done.

Slightly smoky, sweet, fruity. Cloudy orange amber with a thin off white head. Smoky but not overly so. Light with a soft mouthfeel. Earthy. Veggie. Fruity. More earthy on the finish with a little warmth. This was talked up pretty well and it's not bad but not all that was described.
