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.

Disclaimer...I typically do not like Pumpkin beers. (I do like pumpkin pie which is weird I know.) 750ml bottle at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Snifter. Pours a dark brown with a hint of amber. Thick white-tan head. Good lacing. Man it sure smells like ma’s punkin pie baking. Aroma is spot on with pumpkin, bread, cinnamon, all spice and nutmeg. The taste is also very close. I almost thought about taking some and warming up but thought it would destroy it. Probably one of the best pumpkin beers I’ve had. Full body, smooth finish with the all spice just cranking away on the tongue.

This may be as close as I come to loving a pumpkin beer. Aroma was dead on pumpkin pie filling. Somehow on top of all the typical pumpkin spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice), there is some vanilla, and graham. A little thick and warming. Very sweet. I would not want more than an 8oz pour of this but I would like some whipped cream on top.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours amber/brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of a good amount of pumpkin and spices that are balanced well by the good amount of caramel and toffee malts plus a light doughiness. Flavor the same with a good blend. Average to smooth texture. One of the best pumpkin beers.

Bottle. The pour is a light copper. The aroma is all pumpkin, smells like fall. The taste continues that. Tons of fall spice and basically tastes like a pumpkin pie. Nailed a fall beer for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle is light amber, smells like a delicious sweet potato pie. But it is way too sweet, why is this sold in a bomber?!

750ml bottle thanks to Tim. Pours a hazy orange with a large tan head. Big pumpkin and nutmeg aroma. Taste is amazing just like a pumpkin pie. Very great pumpkin beer.

Pours red-amber with a small off white head. Aroma is pumpkin, pumpkin spices and molasses. Taste is sweet potato (not pumpkin) pie with some heavy cane sweetness. The finish falls off at the end.

(bottle - 750 ml) Clear amber pour with an off-white head. Big pumpkin pie spice aroma at the start with some sweetness underneath. Flavor is like liquid pumpkin pie mixed with some vanilla ice cream. Creamy and smooth with each individual spice getting a chance to say hello without being overpowering. The clove presence is really nice. Probably the best pumpkin beer I’ve ever had.
