Can from Hazel’s beverage world. pours orange with a thin white head. leaves a bit of lacing. you can smell the spices from a very long distance. smells like pumpkin pie. kind of boring on the tongue which is disappointing. finishes clean.

16oz on tap at the brewery. Pours a clear, burnt orange with some thin, white head. Nose is sugary, fall spices, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, canned pumpkin pie. Sweet and spicy flavor, root vegetables, acorn squash, brown sugar, ginger, nutmeg. Full bodied, spicy finish. Straight forward pumpkin ale.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is deep, opaque brown with a small tan head and great lacing. Roast, cocoa, coffee, light nutmeg, and cinnamon in the aroma. Taste is roasty, spicy, espresso, light pumpkin, and bread with an over roasted bitter finish. Full mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Pretty tasty porter but no real pumpkin flavors in the aroma or taste.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear amber with a small white head and no visible lacing. Somewhat muted aroma with notes of nutmeg, pumpkin, light cinnamon, and bread. Taste is sweet potatoes, nutmeg, basil, and biscuit with a light spicy finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Not a bad beer, but all of the elements were too muted for it to be anything special. There is some potential here, however.

Tap at the brewery. Pours a medium beige head, over a clear, dark brown (SRM 35) body....nose is nutmeg, cinnamon, coffee, chocolate....taste is coffee, chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg...mouth feel medium, carbonation low. this is a rather light beer of low complexity, dominated by the spices used. BJCP 6/3/10/4/6

Tap @ brewery. Black with a very light beige head. Spicy aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin goo, figs, and light chocolate. Very nice flavor of pumpkin goo, chocolate, burnt marshmellow, pumpkin spice, and toffee. Pretty swell!
