Pours a dull copper with limited and quickly dissipating head. Aroma is allspice and nutmeg with a hint of malt and pumpkin. Spicy on the palate and loosely effervescent. Medium body with the cinnamon and brown sugar coming through the malts. Decent and drinkable brown ale with the fall's character spices pulling in the background. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

There is an odd baked bitterness to this beer. Not like a hop bitterness, just skunky. Wow, first Dogfish I haven't liked. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a light amber color with a thin white head. Strong spice notes in the nose specifically cinnamon. Very mild pumpkin flavor with the spices taking a front seat with a little hoppiness. Not bad for a pumkin beer (Iím normally not a fan).

On tap at Tipsy cow. Orange with a strong aroma of spice, nutmeg and sweetness. A solid tasting pumpkin ale. Spiced, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin are obligatory and present but also a solid malt and hop background. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
