On tap at big time. Dark amber color. Better than average pumpkin beer - nice balance between spices and "beer" seemlessly integrated. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours deep mahogany finger off white head, Smell spices, clove, vanilla, and a bit of gourd Taste is slightly bitter with a lot of fresh pumpkin flavor on the aftertaste. Lighter bodied. Very well done pumpkin, and one of my favorites from Big Time. If you get to try this on tap, try asking for half of this and half of Coal Creek Porter blended.

Tap @ Big Time... Poured clear, golden with a thin head. Fairly hoppy for the pumpkin beer style with nots of bread pie crust, pumpkin herbal squash and spices. The yeast didn’t play at all here. A rather straight forward pumpkin beer.

Great color, aroma was full of spices and the cinnamon was strong and great flavoring. Nutmeg and cloves where also tasted. This was a great beer.

Draft pour at Brouwers cafe in Seattle, Washington. Pour is ruby, brown, golden with a smallish off white head. Aroma of big cinnamon and nutmeg spice with some soft vanilla sweetness behind that. Way in the back there is a whisper of grainy malt. Sweet, full bodied nose - smells more or less like pumpkin pie. Taste is big pumpkin pie - nutmeg, cinnamon, whipped cream, even some of the toasty crust. Pretty remarkable, actually. Palate is medium, heavy - pretty light carbonation - coats nicely, finish is more of the nutmeg spice. Interesting, and spot on pumpkin pie.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2010 Strong cinnamon and nutmeg aroma, spicy and stays short of aggressive sugary notes. dark orange brown, swirling hazy body. light body, vegetable forward clean spices in the finish. solid and splendid. flesh provides a welcome balance to the spice. 111510 2010 release is better than last years. Dark toasty pumpkin aroma spiced with cinnamon clove and nutmeg. Dark amber in the glass, wet sandy head. Excellent progression of flavors, the vegetable beginning, balanced spicy middle and into a dry piney finish. Homerun in my mouth.

Pumpkin spice, cinnamon, toast, and caramel sweetness on the nose. Orange brown, no head. Sweet toasted malts followed by lots of pumpkin spices. I enjoyed the strong spice aspects of this one.

Draft at Elysian Great Pumpkin Beer Fest (GPBF) 08. Murky, burnished dark amber. Thin, loose, sudsy head. Big pie spice nose. Creamy medium body. Basically a malty amber with a metric fuck-ton of pie spice heaped in. Spicy finish. Needs a little dialing before it can rise to Bill’s usual high standard.

From Elysian Pumpkin Fest 2008
Not that much hops to it, though they are noticeable. Good pumpkin spice aroma and a strong nutmeg taste.
