3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Smell is super nice pumpkin pie. Taste is pumpkin with fall spices, but it’s not really sweet like pumpkin pie.

Pours a nice dark amber, orangish-red color with off-white head. Pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, and caramel and malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes like a nice piece of pumpkin pie.

Sampled at ESBLS. Reddish brown. Pumpkin pie spices with pumpkin aroma. Nice. To me the best pumpkin beers taste like pumpkin pie and this one excels. Alcohol on the exhale. Just a little hops under and they really aren’t needed. I like this.

Smell is vegetal and spicy with graham crackers, pumpkin gourds, pie crust, hay, allspice, cinnamon, caramel and hints of pecan nuts. Taste is sweet, vegetal and spicy with caramel, toffee, pie crust, pumpkin, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, hay, soil and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is round, tiny spicy astringent and medium bodied.

Usually not a huge fan of spicy pumpkin beers but this one is good.

Not bad for a spiced beer. Has the rough makings of a promising one. The flavors seem to mask that the beer itself wasn’t perfect. The levels of flavor are a bit flat.
