Release #6. Nice cloudy brown with a beige head rhat leaves a little lacing. Aroma is pumpkin, ginger, cloves, figs, chocolate. Slightly spicy on the palate with some upfront maltiness followed by a slightly bitter and vegetal finish. Taste is pumpkin pie, chocolate, burnt sugar, vanilla. A little lacking in depth and a touch unbalanced.

Bomber, release #19. Lovely, roasted and chocolate malt aroma with notes of pumpkin, vanilla and pumpkin pie spices. Pours black with a decent light brown head with good retention and lacing. Starts with a velvety smooth rich mouthfeel with rich chocolate and roasted malt flavors and a hint of vanilla. Finishes extremely smooth with the pumpkin and the spices coming through nicely. Excellent pumpkin beer!

A fantastic pumpkin, one of the best we've had. Pours a beautiful deep red with a grey head. Smells of pumpkin and a bit of vanilla and cherry. Lots of vanilla straight off the bat, with some pumpkin coming in at the half, and a bit of hoppiness in the finish. Had on tap at the brewery.

Pretty good. Like a pumpkin pie spiced porter as expected. No booze shows, and tastes pretty good. Not getting a pumpkin meat flavor, but the spice is there in the nose and taste and nice roastiness.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma of spice - very suggestive of pie spice. Med body or better. Flavor is spicy, chocolate, vanilla. Maybe getting some coffee. Definitely getting some coffee. It’s pretty dry. The chocolate is turning quite dark and bitter. Arguably one of the better "pie" ales.

Bottle. Pours clear rich chestnut with a large creamy tan head that dissipates slowly with great lacing. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, ashtray, allspice, vanilla. Flavor is rich and roasty, cocoa powder, spice is light, not getting much pumpkin per se. A bit of vanilla, some cigarette and coffee. Light sweet, light plus bitter. I really like the fact that the spices do not play a central role here. Makes for a nice enjoyable beer.
