COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This high-gravity gob of gourd-y goodness incorporates pumpkin in the mashing process and then gets wicked with the spices including Ceylon cinnamon, Jamaican all spice, Zanzibar cloves and nutmeg.

On tap at GABF, what lines for Cigar City! Pours a copper color with a medium white head. The aroma is spicy nutmeg and pumpkin. The flavor is a nice smooth pumpkin brew, lots of cloves and nutmeg, some dry vegetal pumpkin flavors. A nice body.

Tallahassee, fl - Fermentation Lounge - on tap. Medium copper pour, off-white head - good thick lacing. Aroma has slight spicy notes and a hint of smooth nuttiness. Flavor has a deep rich nuttiness to it with just a hint of mellow spices in the background. They enhance the flavor without trying to steal the show. Pick out some cinnamon and a hint of nutmeg, very refined and not intrusive like some pumpkin beers I have had this season. Thick, chewy mouthfeel. Very solid.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 4, 2011
(750ml bottle). Pours a hazy fall orange color with off-white head and very active carbonation. Aroma is pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and some crust or graham cracker. Taste is sweet, but not over-powering, with some light bitterness. The pumpkin really shines through and not just the spices. Full bodied with a dry finish. Alcohol is warming. A nice beer!

Thanks Travlr! A clear amber pour with a beautiful tan head. There’s not too much to say about this beer, other than it is probably the best pumpkin beer I have every experienced! Everything about it reminds me of pure pumpkin pie meat. Clove, allspice, nutmeg, and cinnamon abound. Thick and creamy, though never too sweet.

Travlr (12363) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 2, 2011
Bottle at DC local tasting, courtesy of me, thank me very much! Deep orange amber color, small off white head. Aroma of light pumpkin appropriate spices. Taste of creamy spice, mostly nutmeg and cinnamon, and of course jack-o-lantern. Good stuff

Nice aroma of pumpkin, spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, and bread dough. The appearance is a deep orange, white head. The flavor is like the aroma, pumpkin, some caramel, bready. Medium to medium/thixk in body. Light pine hops, spices on the finish. Nicely dome. Still not the equal of the Pumking!

Bottle; pour is murky dark golden with an average beige head in this glass. Very light spotty lacing is present in this glass. finally; a pumpkin beer that isn’t ridiculously spiced with clove. Cinnamon and nutmeg on the nose, from what I can tell. A little cracker crust as well. The flavor profile has a noticeable hop note, which was a little surprising. Prototypical cigar city malt profile in my mind. I was honestly expecting a lot more out of of this one. More pumpkin please, because im getting more base beer than anything.

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2012 The body on this brew was appealing; a nice and bright orange body with a little bit of haziness and a nice thick head. The scent was the best I’ve encountered in a pumpkin beer - lots of ginger, cinnamon, some pumpkin and even hints of nutmeg. Tasted like a pumpkin pie with an interesting twist of hops and seasonal spices. Finished nice and mellow leaving the taste buds ready for another several glasses.

Nice copper pour with a good head. Sweet smell of all the standard pumpkin spices but not overpowering. Full bodied with a balanced taste. Didn’t strike me of a pumpkin pie but you definitely pick up on some all spice, clove & nutmeg. Thanks burg326!
