10/23/13 trade from Jamil. A tasty, spiced pumpkin. Buttery pumpkin pie scent with a pretty bronze pour, but a slightly thin feel. Big spicy nutmeg and cinnamon flavor to fruity apple an pumpkin notes.

Bomber. Poured medium orange with a short, sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet vanilla, nutmeg, and pumpkin meat with some odd tangy character around (not sure what it was.. not quite medicinal, but not great). The flavor found tart apple skins and light oak-like character upfront.. grainy throughout.. nutmeg, ginger, and related pie spice throughout (in a good way).. meatier pumpkin meat and the aforementioned spices on the long finish. Medium-bodied with full-ish carbonation on the palate.. a bit grainier than I’d like.. overall this got better as it progressed.

A really good seasonal from the Capital Brewery and a relatively new addition!

On tap at Ervs Mug. Clear copper with a creamy tan head. Aroma is heavily spiced with allspice, nutmeg and a caramel backer. Taste of pumpkin pie with allspice, cinnamon, ginger, caramel and toffee. Finishes up spicy and not bad. Kirby’s exit means we’ll finally get some much needed new styles from the brewery that brought me into the craft beer world many years ago.

Pours clear dark amber with a thin white ring of head. Nose is pumpkin pie crust, spice, and cool whip. Sweet bready malt with a touch of pumpkin. Taste is the same...smooth but bold pumpkin pie flavor, heavy on the allspice with a little heat. Medium body and carbonation. Love the new style from the new brewer.
