Had this at a tasting, reviewed from notes: pours a nice dark orangish-amber color. Pumpkin, sweetness, brandy, nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove on the nose; all follow onto the palate. The spicing really comes through on the finish. Very good pumpkin beer.

Autumn 2013 bottle to snifter.gorgeous dark amber color that looks like a cognac in the glass. Pumpkin and honey fragrance with a hint of metallic oxidation. Fortunately no oxidation qualities present themselves in the taste. I get pumpkin pie spice, brown sugar, and whiskey. Thinner bodied than expected but noting is lacking. A nice sipper.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours thick hazy cooked deep caramel with a foamy beige head. Aroma is divine, the caramelized pumpkin fruit spotlightling with a gentle sweetness almost honey notes. Flavor brings sweet pumpkin spices and smooth tangy sweet booze blended awesomely on the tongue so well.

Sampled in a bottle that was aged a few months. A really exciting brew. Big time malts and a great spice palate. Really cool and enjoyable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
2/7/14 notes: Bottle. Pours a nice tarnished orange, with a good frothy head. Aroma is pungent smashed pumpkin, maple, cinnamon, marshmellow. With a creamy textured mouthfeel, flavor arrives naturally, a lightly sweet spiced pumpkin with a woodsy, earthy complement. Alcohol is perfectly integrated. An excellent creation, a real treat to be had especially on a cold late afternoon. 4.1.

Bottle at Dean’s aged pale lager tasting. Hazy orange pour with floaties. Aroma of fruity shower gel, fruity, spicy, pumpkin, a little messy and quite peppery. Flavor is spicy, quite sweet, a little messy and quite warming. Nice and well balanced.
