On tap at CBF. Nice, light brown head. Mostly clear dark brown color. Decent lace. Aroma is very veggie-like, not as rich, roasty, or sweet as I expected. Satisfying pumpkin aroma, though. Good, light carbonation. Dry finish. Light smokiness. Bitter taste,

Such a solid brew...and absolutely love the name! Have appreciated horror movies for some time now and Halloween has always been a focus. Dark, complex, and aggressive with cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin meat, brown sugar, and caramel are all there. Super knotty and tasty! Get it if it’s available!

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2015 On tap at El Azteca restaurant. Poured a small brown head of fine to medium sized long lasting bubbles. The aroma contained notes of brown malt and mild spices. The body was an opaque brown and had a fair lacing. The flavor contained notes of mild vinous weak brown malt, licorice and spices. Overall it is a decent pumpkin ale that is slightly different from the norm.

[Tap] Sampled at the brewpub. Opaque black pour with a light brown colored head. Hearty aroma of pumpkin pie spices, syrupy molasses and heavy ginger. Taste has a more mellowed spice profile, with dark and roasty malts becoming more upfront. Lingering chocolate and licorice notes mix with ginger. Nice complexity. Tasting notes from 11/2011.
