A little bit of a darker pumpkin beer. Pours a dark copper color with a foamy canvas colored head. Notes of chocolate, dark brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and earth. Sweet mouthfeel, medium length finish.

Can from CBB, this poured a much darker color than I had imagined rather than the reddish-brown I expected it was a dark brown with a thick dirty beige looking head that only reveals reddish accents when held up to the light. Quite a spicy aroma with some of the apple cinnamon quality to it but there are enough other spices coming through to keep it in the realm of pumpkin pie. Medium-thin bodied with a relatively smooth mouthfeel. The taste is maltiness giving it somewhat of a cookie-ish pie crust character then the spices and pumpkin come into play giving you that full on pie experience. Looking at the ingredients I am surprised to discover it is made with chocolate as well! Pretty good a bit more spic than I want but it is fairly evenly balanced and has enough surprises to keep me drinking.

Pours a dark brown with a medium white to mocha head. Heavy spice aromas that certainly remind you of fall and pumpkin pie. It has a mild to heavy sweetness (absolutely think of pumpkin pie) with almost no bitter. The body is medium bot full with a fluffy texture that again reminds me of pumpkin pie. This is near and dear to my heart as I love pumpkin pie. I am absolutely biased.

Bottle at home. Pours reddish brown to amber with a off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin and spices, malts, caramel. Taste is sweet caramel malty, pumpkin and spices, light bitter aftertaste. Not bad, bit thin perhaps.

Can to goblet. Auburn and chestnut colored pour with a finger of creamy ran head. Nutmeg is strong in the nose, also cloves and pumpkin. Pumpkin up front in the taste, followed by a lesser amount of spices. The norm for pumpkin spices; cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, etc. Personally, I like the spices being toned down. Seems like a little cocoa in there too and a sweetness that I associate with honey. Rich mouthfeel.
