2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not exactly my cup of tea but not bad. Slight malt up front with a dark hoppy finish. A tad thin in the middle. I think some of the additions to this could have been more up front making a WOW niche beer instead of a flavoried beer with an interesting label. It is an enjoyable beverage, one that has a place in a fall festival. This is one to keep in the cellar and bring out to freak people out.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark copper beer with an off-white head. Aromas of pumpkin pie, and caramel sweetness. Tastes of muted pumpkin pie flavors, yams, prunes, caramel, and some earthy notes in the finish. A bit too cloyingly sweet for me. Unoffensive pumpkin flavors, but the high amounts of sugary sweetness made this one a bit tough to finish.

Bottle: Poured a clear brown color ale with a medium size dark beige color head with OK retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of pumpkin and light spices is less powerful then expected. Taste is a mix between light pumpkin notes with light dry spices with light residual sugar finish. Body is a bit thin with medium carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not the most interesting experiment with a lot of components falling into middle of the road category without enough complexity; malt backbone is also a bit too thin.

Pours a reddish brown mahogany color. Aroma of spiced herb, a slight odor of yams and pumpkins. Taste is a slight lemon zest mixed with a spice vegetable mix in the initial swallow. The taste disappears quickly then is refreshing after you’re done.

(on draught at the Bruery Provisions store). Pours a clear mahogany color with creamy off-white head. Aroma has fenugreek, pumpkin and other spices I can identify. Tate is sweet with some light spicy bitterness. Medium bodied with a dry finish. Meh. Not my favorite. Probably because I hate fenugreek.

Bottle. what the fuck. haven’t we learned from dfh that this shit does not work? This stuff is a little toned down from the usual dogfish bs but that doesn’t make it better. Dark amber color with a white sudsy off-white head. Nose is lemon, cinnamon, other spices. Flavor is a bit messy, hard to really pick out the flavors, just kinda blah. What a waste of a collab. Brew something drinkable.

Tap at Naja’s. Pours hazy brown with a small, fizzy off-white head, short retention with good lacing. Aroma is birch, spiced, toast and caramel malt, earth notes and dates. Flavor is malt forward, spices, fruity esters, cumin, lemon and a dry finish. Light body and warmth with medium carbonation.

12oz bottle poured into snifter. I’m not sure what half the ingredients are in this beer but it doesn’t seem to work. I’m a big pumpkin fan but not even the faintest bit of pumpkin comes through. It’s more of a sweet/dry malt mess. Not impressed.

Just average. A bit of hops to it, a little spice. Nice color and head but just average overall...
