22 oz. One of the better pumpkin beers I’ve had. Nice balance between a classic porter with the spices and pumpkin flavor.

2013-08-17. Aroma of dusty malt, spice, and nutty touches. 7+ Flavour has sweet malt core, light spice, and nutty touches as in the aroma. Not getting much in the way of pumpkin character, but I quite enjoy the spice quality. 7+ Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Campground Brewdown.

Very small tan head into a black beer with ruby tinges. Smell is very nice, buttered pumpkin, cinnamon/spice cake, vanilla. Slight booziness. Taste is lots of woodiness and vanilla. Burnt wood reminds me of coffee. Much drier than smell, and a little booze on the tongue. Very nice.

22. Pours jet black with a dense and creamy tan head that lasts and lasts, showing plenty of lace. Bright nose of pie spice and toasty chocolate malt. Creamy thick body with soft carb. Chocolate, roast, and pie spice on the mid palate, beautifully integrated. Long sweet finish. Great beer.

Great creamy vanilla aroma, full bodied, rich dark flavor. Pumpkin and vanilla notes are unfortunately overwhelmed by maltiness. Carbonation is also slightly overpowering. Better as it warms to room temp.

Poured from 22oz bottle into a glass that cost more than your car. Look, this is not bad! I usually stay away from anything pumpkin, but I have to concede this is pretty good stuff. Pumpkin flavor is a nice compliment to some herbal and malty tones. Value wise: excellent! Would consider picking up another bottle, but a brew more appropriate for autumn and not the hot ass days of summer. Release #10
