750ml bottle gushed hard, then pours a murky amber with some bubbly white head. Nose has plenty of pumpkin spice, nutmeg, brown sugar, mild cinnamon, a little dusty couch, some ginger, a little candy, clove too. Flavor is OK, plenty sweet, brown sugar, ginger, clove, nutmeg, a little marshmellow. Sweet finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

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.

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.
