2.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into glass from 22 oz bottle. Aroma- awful. Smell likes wet dog or pee. Appearance- dark auburn with stoutlike frothy head. Taste- tastes like dirt or leaves in a good way. Doesnt take like beer but a thin mud liquid. Palate- same as above. Very earthy aftertaste. Overall- one of the most unique beers i have had. Pretty good and interesting on occasion. Rating could be higher as 3.2

Dark coffee color. Sweet maple aroma. Tastes like grass and chocolate. Strange but not bad.

Aroma of overripe pumpkin, chocolate, and nutmeg. Pours deep brown with slight head. Taste is strong squash pumpkin with a roasty dirt aftertaste. Solid and dark. Could be sweeter.

Bottle: Pours a clear brown dark with a medium tan head. The nose is chocolate with some nutmeg or allspice. The taste shows some pumpkin with nice maltiness. The mouthfeel is well balanced with a nice medium mouthfeel. This is a nicely balanced beer

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
This had a body that really undid all the good flavour work. Big bold chocolate, vanilla, wood and pumpkin nose. Similar flavours, but the mouthfeel is weak, oily and baseless.

Bomber. Nose of pumpkin pie, spices: cinnamon and nutmeg, plus pumpkin, caramel. Flavors pretty much the same, very much like pumpkin pie with chocolate and caramel. Nice, a bit over the top. And not what I would do.

Bomber. Thanks to Albert of AQ. Good coffee nose, with pumpkin and spice. Very spicy initial flavor; mid palate has chocolate; finish lets the chocolate develop more. Thin-medium body. I hate pumpkin pie, but I like this.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bomber. Deep brown-black body, big beige head holds steady. This is definitely one of my favorite pumpkin beers, though it has more of a chocolate character truthfully. Delightfully mellow and fluffy on the palate, no harsh alcohol tones to speak of. Caramel chocolate covered pumpkin, with some nice spices to balance it out. Really sublime and excellent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours brown with rust/orange highlights and a medium head that leaves a little lacing. The aroma is where the pumpkin comes through, and only mildly. The taste is vanilla, coffee, kind of a slight Dr. Pepper kind of thing going on, and a little bit of bite at the end. It isn’t a bad beer, but I won’t have it again.
