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.

Bottle from CC brought up by wilkes and lynn. I’m not the biggest pumpkin brew fan, but doesn’t seem to stop me from trying them all... Bread and pumpkin pie aroma. Taste is the expected spices (highlighted by cinnamon,clove and nutmeg) with vanilla, cereal and an earthy bitterness. Everything seems pretty well balanced and covers the alcohol well enough. Again - not my favorite style - but as good a pumpkin as I’ve had.

750mL. The pour is a hazy, full red with a healthy, larger yellow head. Mostly rocky with heavy, sticky lace. Looking good. Nose is rich but not just with pumpkin pie spices. Way more vanilla and whipped cream character. As it warms, subtle complexities come through like pie crust, toasted pumpkin seeds, sweet pumpkin flesh, poundcake, creamy pumpkin pie, vanilla custard. Smells like autumn without the prosaic spice medley of cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg thank god. Taste- really not as heavy as you would think. A well attenuated palate allows you to demolish this beer in record time barely getting to experience the baked dessert, toasted pumpkin seeds, and pie crust. Mild spice and vanilla ice cream is there. Pretty awesome beer and what a joy to have in juxtaposition with the typical pumpkin beer onslaught of the fall.

dark earthy pumpkin, lots of cinnamon and allspice, and subtle clove. malts are rich and sweet. too much spice for me, but the character hits me more like ginger bread than pumpkin pie.

750ml bottle poured into Cigar City snifter. Clean orange brown color with a little bit of head and lacing. Aroma has sweet hints of pumpkin, spice, and herb. Flavor has a nice balance between the pumpkin and cinnamon/nutmeg sweetness. Been looking forward to trying this for sometime and it didn’t disappoint.

I had heard good things about this one, and I was not disappointed! Best Pumpkin beer I have had. Good flavor, yet well balanced. Very smooth.

Pouring at the Blind Tiger for Mike’s 50th birthday extravaganza. Pours a hazed orange rouge with a thin white head. Loads of pie spice, toast and pumpkin. Smooth and toasty, malt and more pie spice. Warm malt, long spice and pie. Tasty and warm, a light chocolate note comes through on the finish.

Pours amber with nice notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. This drive into a malt driven but pumpkin flavor brew that showcases the pumpkin and a cinnamon, nutmeg, light cocoa finish. A big beer.

On tap at Blind Tiger in honor of Mike Eyedrinkale. Pours a burnt orange with moderate off-white head. Aroma is more butterscotch than pumpkin with a bit of spruce and bread. Flavor has plenty of butterscotch with a minor spruce presence amidst pumpkin pie. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty tasty.
