Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium complex sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Complex soft beer.

Lubiere (10094) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 2, 2014
A lightly hazed dark brown ale with a thick frothy mocha head. In aroma, smooth molasses and dark fruits, with light ginger, orange peels, lemon touches, and licorice. In mouth, a rich bodied burned caramel malt with light licorice, treacle, light alcohol (noting the 5%), very roasted, well done.

daknole (9127) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 8, 2011
Cloudy brownish pour, creamy head. Loads of spices in the nose, roasted pumpkin, candi sugar, syrup and some gingery notes. Sweet flavor, spicy, yeast, tons goin on in this one and in a pretty good way. Tap at the Bruery Provisions on my crazy birthday San Diego trip with Storminorman.

adnielsen (9123) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2011
Bottle @ home. Cloudy brown appearance with a light brown head. Citrusy, potpourri, air freshener, a touch toasty malty, hugely floral aroma. Toasty pumpkin, lemon citrusy, big floral flavor. Floral, pumpkin aftertaste. Weird beer- I won’t be drinking any more than this one but it isn’t all that bad.

hopdog (8952) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2012
12oz bottle. Poured a deep mahogany color with an off white head. Aromas of caramel, herbal, some pumpkin and some spices. Tastes of toasted pumpkin seeds, spices, caramel, and citrus. Different.

Sammy (8678) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2012
Something different. The pumpkin was well in the secondary of taste to the herbs and slight bitterness and woodiness. I liked it and could drink this anytime, particular at this level of sessionability.

Drake (8611) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - DEC 20, 2011
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a clear dark red-orange color with a thin tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of spicy, earthy, herbal and vegetal notes. The taste is spices, almost curry-like, squash, herbal notes and faint caramel malts. Medium bodied. Interesting.

JoeMcPhee (8466) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep brown colour with a thick stick tan head. The aroma is really interesting. Sort of an herbal root beer/minty top note along with a bit of soft warming spiciness. Palate definitely shows some cooling character that contrasts nicely with some warming components. There is a mix of citrus and spice that reminds me of sarsparilla. Nicely spiced with a lightness that belies the appearance. Unique and quite tasty - would definitely love to have another few bottles.
