Pours a clear reddish gold. Aroma of brown sugar and nutmeg. Taste is mildly sweet up front with an explosion of cinnamon and nutmeg followed by a stuff bitterness that nicely offsets the flavor. Well balanced and not over the top like other punkin ales. I could get a sixer or case seasonally.

Pours a hazy amber orange gold color with a small creamy beige head. Spicy toffee malt aroma is full of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Smooth toasted caramel malt flavor. Lotís of pumpkin pie spice and brown sugar sweetness. Nicely balanced with a spicy hop finish. One of the best pumpkin ales currently available.

From a bottle. Pours a light copper color. Aromas are candy malt, pumpkin, spice, Belgian yeast. Flavors are malt, spice, and dried apricot. Medium mouthfeel with a malty finish. Very nicely done. This is a nice, flavorful seasonal beer.

Had on tap at The Mayor of Old Town. The aroma is very perfumy, pie spices. The flavor is tannic spices, sweet malts, bready. Overly spiced and the tannins are out of balance.

. Nose presents caramel malt sweetness, pumpkin purťe, nutmeg, cinnamon, and all the usual suspects. Flavor is similar with a decent thickness to it and the spices coming through in the end. Not terrible.
