Growler thanks to ericandersnavy. Pour a murky deep amber red with a little white head. Aroma was very apparent when bottle was opened, nice pumpkin, nutmeg cinnamon, malt. Flavor is very much the same with nice sweetness and spiciness. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy body with low carbonation. Overall, a great, spicy pumpkin brew, very tasty!!!!!

Pours a halloween orange with a nice tan head. Aroma is spices and nutmeg. Taste is spices and herbs. As it warms up u get more pumpkin. Palate is medium with a decent warming ability. Overall a really good fall brew

On tap at the brewery. Hazy orange brown pour with a thin off white head. Big pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon and hints of spicy hops. Big malt body that helps balance the cinnamon and nutmeg flavors. Lots of spicy hops poking through all of the flavors. Nice creamy pumpkin finish. Great stuff.

Orangey-amber with a creamy head. Big spice and lots of sugars plus cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and pumpkin. Big brown sugar with more of the same spices. Very rich. Creamy and delicious, this is as big a pumpkin ale as I’ve had and as good.

A: Pours a nice clear brillant punkin’ orange hue with a nice tall creamy head. The retention is very good with spotty lace noted. S: In the aroma department this one is hard to beat, it is neck and neck with Southern Tier Pumpking here. Huge real pumpkin aromas with a wonderful mix of spices. There is a real buttery crust element in here as well that I have never picked up in another beer. Even after the beer was gone from the glass the aroma still wafted from the empty glass. This one smells better than those $20 candles the wife brings home. T: The flavors are wonderful as well. Real pumpkin, a perfect mix of pie spices, and oooh that gooey butter I detected. The pumpkin stands out without the spice overpowering. This one is a perfect mix between the pumpkin beers of DogFish Head and Southern Tier. I will quickly become a favorite of the pumpkin beer lovers. M: Medium in body, smooth and creamy. D: I tasted this one when it was first finished and the booze could really be detected. Since it has aged a bit, the alcohol flavors have died and the pumpkin, spice, and buttery goodness have come together to create one wonderful brew.

Deep pumpkin pie filling color. Creamy luscious nose is like the whole pie including whipped cream--a nice sweet and spicy combination. Unique for a pumpkin beer, similar to pumpkin ice cream. Creamy soft carbonation. Gentle, mild but assertive, spicing is integrated and not overpowering. The predominant spices are nutmeg and cinnamon as opposed to clove and allspice. Gets spicier with each sip as it warms, tastier too. Not in the least bit vegetal. Nice, smooth and sophisticated character. Nice malts and a good alcohol dryness in the finish. Super.

Thanks to Joey for the taste. Pours a pretty roasted pumpkin color with a thick tan head. Nose is more fresh pumpkin and spices, reminding me of a fresh baked carrot cake. The taste is not overly spicy, which makes it highly drinkable. I almost get some banana in the flavor, too. Everything tastes fresh and not artificial at all. Also, a very substantial mouthfeel. This is an excellent pumpkin beer.
