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.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2012 Draft at World of Beer (Carrollwood, FL). Very nice pumpkin beer. Tons of pumpkin and spice in the aroma and flavor. Be careful though, this one packs a punch!

Pailhead (5065) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 8, 2010
Growler: The aroma consists of moderate nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin, and graham cracker. It pours a transparent amber with a small off-white head that leaves spotty lacing. The flavor starts with brown sugar, nutmeg, and pumpkin. The finish has moderate cinnamon and light graham cracker. Absolutely no hint of 9.9% ABV in aroma or flavor. Medium bodied with lively, but somewhat soft, carbonation. If you like pumpkin beers, this is definitely worth seeking out.

Hazy amber color/ fleeting biege head. Mild fall spice, pumpkin flesh, caramel aromas. medium bodied. Lightly dry, astringent fall spice flavors with a mild canned pumpkin taste. Not rich nor sweet like the better brews of this style. 12 oz snifter@CCB

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2013 As pumpkin spice beers go, this one is pretty good. A lot of cinnamon, too much for my liking, but also some nice nutmeg and vanilla notes. It’s a pretty good beer overall but something I definitely wouldn’t die to drink outside of season. Goes well with meats, predictably. 2013 batch: An excellent beer for what it is. Sweet, really spicy, nice mouthfeel. Too heavy on, well, everything, to be my favorite beer in the world, but pretty tasty. For like 8oz.

Thanks to ericandersnavy for sharing this growler. The beer pours an orange-amber color with white bubbles. There is not much, if any, real head on the beer. The aroma is pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon. Very nice smelling. The flavor is reminiscent of pumpkin pie. I get a lot of sweet pumpkin, as well as some allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon and caramel malt. Medium body with low carbonation. A very nice pumpkin ale.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - SEP 27, 2010
Appearance: Pours a vibrant auburn red with a tight thin white film atop. Aroma: Nutmeg, cinnamon and other pumpkin pie like aromas. Taste: Bitter nutmeg, pumpkin meat and alcohol. Finishes very dry and bitter. Mouthfeel: Aggressive carbonation, medium bodied. Overall: Super solid, most things I like about a strong pumpkin ale were nailed on this one, however I’d like it even better if it was sweeter. Many pumpkin ales go overboard with the pie like sweetness, so I see the caution that was taken with this one.

Bottle shared by Dave at the September 2010 Metro Detroit tasting, thanks! Poured a near clear amber with a white head that dissipated quickly to the edges. Aroma was full of spice with pumpkin and a slight sweet grain backing. Flavor was similar with spiced pumpkin really coming through and a bit of backing bread coming out in the finish.

The best pumpkin beer I have tasted. Poured a hazy burnt orange straight from the taproom at the brewery. The nose is spice, vanilla, carmel, and pumpkin. The taste was semi sweet with muted pumpkin flavors that were dominated by the nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, and brown sugar. A deceptively strong beer........
