Bottle from Errl. Thanks, Chris! Batch #1. Deep orange brown. Pumpkin spice on the nose. Pumpkin flesh, spices, light smokiness. Full bodied and malty. Dry, not overly spiced...my kind of pumpkin beer.

Pours deep amber with a thick white head. Pumpkin, smoke and spices, like eating pumpkin pie around a campfire. Sounds even better than s’mores.

Beerenberger (1414) - Fischer, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2013
A solid pumpkin aroma accompanied with the approprate spice fragrances. Pours a slightly hazy mahogany color with an inch of tan foam which provides moderate lacing. The taste is pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice with some bread showing up in the finish. There is also some hoppy citrus notes in the aftertaste. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Overall, this was a tasty and enjoyable pumpkin ale. I wish it had a slightly creamier mouthfeel.

5000 (6239) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle:   Deep dark and dirty amber, very muddy, small sudsy tannish head, little lacing.   Muted spices on the nose, soft biscuit, a little wort like.   Spiced up front, somewhat assertive but its muted, a little dull.   Smoke is faint.   A bit bready, nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice linger.   Has a somewhat creamy finish, reminds me a bit of Elysian The Great Pumpkin on the finish.   Wished this one were brighter in its spices, with more smoke.   Tasty but fairly mediocre.   Thanks for the bottle Bill!

Scurtis (5) - Bastrop, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2013 does not count
Nice head that lasts; distinct smoky flavor separate from the aroma. Pumpkin spices as an aftertaste that lingers on the palate very pleasantly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Seasonal pumpkin brew. Notes of pumpkin and spice. Smooth head. Tastes a bit sweet but not too molassesy. Like biting into someone’s pumpkin pie to sample and then moving on to the next desert. In addition you can sense the alcohol, which seems like it should be hidden more. Overall good but as far as pumpkin ales it should be re-configured. It’s not balanced enough.

Pours a deep amber with little and quickly dissipating white head. Tastes of pumpkin spice and light smoke. Ends a bit dry and bitter.

Mora2000 (5650) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Orange pour with a white head. The aroma is full of pumpkin with some light cinnamon and nutmeg notes. The flavor is a bit different. I get some smoked pumpkin notes as well as some cinnamon, nutmeg and toffee malt. The alcohol is also noticeable. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. The smoked notes really add something to the beer and set it apart from the other pumpkin ales on the market. I like it.

Pours with a rich amber color and a lot of foam. The aroma is sharp pumpkin. Second is pumpkin spice. The smoke is understated which is nice because my parents house just burned down and smoke is depressing right now. The flavor is nice and bitter, a little creamy and finishes strong
