4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle share at Proof courtesy of scotchzi. Opaque orangey amber. Zero head, but who cares? Aroma reminds me of hot cider: spice (cinnamon, clove) sweet almost burnt sugar, and pumpkin replaces the apple, but there is a touch of baked apple too. Taste is very similar, but a warm spiced rum comes through too. Thin-medium body with almost no carbonation; but who cares? Extremely well thought out brew, and yummy as hell. Maybe my new favorite pumpkin?

Batch 04-2014 -- 12 oz bottle poured into a tulip. Translucent brown color, boozey nose, zero head. Flavor is boozey and delicious. Pumpkin comes through, but the spices have fallen out. Tastes like a dessert, decadent and full.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy copper and bronze coloured body with a non-existent head, some subtle shades of orange and a nice peach and ruby glow. Aroma of alcohol, bourbon, grain, maple syrup, candy, rich toasted malt, pumpkin pie spice and some honey - strong and surely potent. Full-bodied; Super strong and dense rich squash flavour with some bourbon, oak, malt, grain, maple syrup, pumpkin/squash, pumpkin pie spice and extra allspice thrown in, all with a ton of leftover alcohol. Aftertaste shows some boozey notes with grain, squash, syrup, toffee, caramel, oak, vanilla and a bunch more alcohol - super rich, and definitely noticeable with double digits abv! Overall, a good, but very rich and decadent squash-based beer with a ton of sweetness and even more alcohol tucked in. Good to try and even better that this was on draught. I sampled this ten ounce pour on draught at Whole Foods in Pentagon City (Arlington), Virginia at the end of my driveway on 18-October-2016 for US$9,00.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle, Batch No. 5, bottled Sept 9, 2015. 18.0% ABV. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours a burnt orange color with about an inch light tan head that fizzled away quickly. Lacing is OK, and there are some floaties noticeable too. I like the aroma, the brew smells like rum, nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin, allspice and some ginger. For the most part I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some brown sugar and graham crackers. Mouthfeel/body is full, it’s coating with a moderate amount of carbonation. Drinks easy enough for being 18% ABV. It’s still a sipper, but a pretty good one. This is definitely worth picking up! $12.99 a bottle.

Looks like apple cider. Smell is booze, more booze, and spices. Sweet up front, cinnamon in middle, and alcohol burn as it goes down. Noy a big fan of pumpkin beers, but this one is pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark mahogany with a thin white head. Aroma is rum, graham cracker, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, and pumpkin. Flavor is a mix of rum barrels, pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spices. Sweet, heavy, boozy, and warming. Yes, it is a bit strong and it may work better with less alcohol, but it’s still quite good.

Sept. 09,2015 batch #5 ABV. 18.0%. Pours dark amber with a bunch of floaties and thin wispy film and collar. Aroma is strong nutmeg clove pumpkin pie filling from a can and rum booze. Taste is sweet and boozy with plenty of spice which comes off astringent from the booze. Palate is full slick somewhat chewy and very warming. I dig it, strong sipper.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Orange copper color. Aroma of pumpkin spice, booze, red fruit and malt. Flavor is strong, with lots of pumpkin spice, cinnamon, booze, malt and a alcoholic finish. Really heavy, it’s nice, but would be better with less alcohol.
