I just moved and have no pint glasses, so I’m currently drinking this out of the bottle. However, it gives off a nice scent of cinnamon and brown sugar. The taste is of a nutty ale with a nice touch of pumpkin spice and cinnamon. Great beer by a great brewery.

12 oz. bottle. Pale amber color, small head which quickly recedes. Aroma of malt, cinnamon and nutmeg notes. Tastes of malt, faint pumpkin notes, cinnamon, nutmeg. Spices are not overdone and blend in fairly well. Decent.

Aroma: reminiscent of fake nutmeg smell in cartons of egg nog; not pleasant, but not the beer’s fault; Appearance: amber with minimal white head; no lacing; Taste: sweet with pumpkin and nutmeg flavors; some alcohol; not for me; Palate: medium body, long finish with odd aftertaste; Overall: can appreciate the effort but definitely not my style; would not buy again

Un question que je me pose à chaque année à cette période précise où sortent une multitude de bières à la citrouille but par Dieu sait qui: pourquoi presque tous les brasseurs s’entêtent-ils à continuer de brasser ce type de bière?Celle que je bois en ce moment n’est pas meilleure ni pire que les autres de la même gamme. Orangée, filtrée et peu mousseuse, une quantité phénoménale de bulles poursuivent leur ascension vers la surface même après 20 minutes que je n’ai pas touché à mon verre alors que j’appréhende la prochaine gorgée. Nez sucré et épicé, mielleux, malté et lourd. C’est du DogfishHead mais surtout, c’est une DogfishHead citrouille. En bouche le corps est moins péniblement lourd que ce que je redoutais. Une attaque d’épices sur fond terreux. Je reçois du clou de girofle moulu et de la cannelle. Du grain de coriandre aussi. Le goût de citrouille est peu présent est Dieu en soit loué car c’est déjà bien peu agréable. C’est décidé: je n’achèterai pas une 24 de cette bière lors de mon voyage à Boston au Black Friday prochain lors du release de Bourbon County.

Turboninja (271) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 5, 2015
Bottle@home. Medium, sweet aroma with pumpkin, sweet malts and some cinnamon. Orange color with small natural white head and clear liquid. Medium and balanced taste of pumpkin, sweet malts and almost Christmas notes like cinnamon and cardamom. Medium taste spectrum and medium/short aftertaste with pumpkin and malts. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall classy product without too much pumpkin.

12Fl OZ ($9.99 4 pack) these guys are seriously over rated. maybe you east coast folks have a lack of quality beers but here in california this doesn’t stand a chance. once again another over price, over pushed, over hyped beer from dogfish head. not bad but not living up to the price or hype.

dhatton (234) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - OCT 30, 2015
Clear burned orange body with off-white head that disappears rather quickly. Nutmeg, spice, and sweet malt aroma with faint pumpkin notes. Taste is cinnamon bread and malts leaving a sticky sweet mouthfeel. Mild hop bitters and spice on the finish. Not too heavy-handed on the pumpkin flavors, but nicely balanced.

tillmac62 (510) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - OCT 30, 2015
Pours a semi-clear medium amber. Below normal head volume, poor lacing, normal retention. Very light nose with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. Medium body with a somewhat creamy texture. Superb carbonation with a nice effervescent middle and a prickly finish. The flavor profile is good, but lacks intensity and complexity. Balance is outstanding. It begins with a light blended spice flavor that tails off into pumpkin past the middle. The middle brings a light spicy bitterness and a balancing biscuit. The finish is a slow fade with mostly cinnamon notes.

Pumpkin and pumpkin spice. A bit thin. Some roasted malt but not much. There is a little brown sugar.
