Bottle. Moderately spicy and sweet aroma with nutmeg and allspice accents. Crystal clear copper under a white flannel blanket. Smooth base malt flavour complimented by a blend of pumpkin spices that are in balance with the malt and not overpowering. Ethanol not strong for 7%. Bitterness is subtle. Medium light body, moderate to medium carbonation, clean finish.

A good brew, but a bit overhyped! Clear brown hue. Sweet and a little spicy. The pumpkin flavor is there but realy faint. More prominent than the Pumpking but lacking the molasses sensiblity of the Krunkin’ Pumpkin. A thin head. Smooth wash down but it seems to stop there. It is not as full-bodied as it claims and certainly has no hint of nutmeg. Passable. Drinkable. Drink it. Say you did. Then be on with your day.

Head is tall, but dissipates quickly. Bright orange color. Heavy mouthfeel with strong cinnamon nutmeg and of course, pumpkin

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Beautiful clear copper color with two fingers of foamy off-white head. Aromas of fresh pumpkin with pie spice. Flavor follows suit with a good balance of the pumpkin and spice and a slightly dry finish. I like that the spice isn’t overpowering here. Another winner from Dogfish Head.

ROBC3366 (541) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Pours an orange amber with minimal head. Not a strong aroma, some brown sugar notes. Flavor is very fall/winter-like: cinnamon, cloves, some pumpkin and a sugary sweetness. One of the best pumpkin beers I’ve had, definitely worth having around in the fall.

Chadski4 (98) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Another impressive offering by Dogfish Head. Taste is subtle enough to be distinct but not over-done or self conscious.

Beergeek23322 (2161) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - NOV 20, 2013
9/15/2011. From bottle. Amber color with a white head. Spicy aromas with fruit. Sugary flavors with pumpkin and spices. One of my least favorite styles of beer, but this one is OK.

DocJitsu (836) - Florida, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Pours a deep golden with a two-finger, eggshell colored head. Pumpkin pie aromas. Thick, creamy texture, with some underlying micro-scrub burn. Tons of pumpkin pie without becoming artificial. The hop bitterness in the background balances the sweetness of the malt and pumpkin pie flavors. One of the better pumpkin beers I’ve had.
