4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE TASTED: October 26, 2013... GLASSWARE: HopDevil nonick... OCCASION: offering PSU some comeback inspiration... APPEARANCE: jet black body; oatmeal-thick brown head; lacing is uneven but thick as well... AROMA: crisp, candied flavor; toasted nut and oat undergird thee spiciness that is as much holiday as mischief night...PALATE: slightly warming, medium-bodied and drinkable--the IMPERIAL aspect is so subtle one quickly/nervously sips...TASTE: pumpkin, apple, peat and an odd funk of medicinal/plastic bottle vodka that takes the rating down a click--still big and old...OVERALL: of the handful of fall bombers I bought, this dares to blend the fall and winter seasons, and it does so deftly; a powerful punch of alcohol by the bottle’s end only endears the drink more...more the Galloping Hessian than the Great Pumpkin, in terms of its substance and strength...

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
One of the better pumpkin beers I’ve had it still gross for me. Nice malt and dessert esque profile. A bit of spice up front with a nice little vanilla and allspice back bone. Not sweet at all but rather quite rich with a delicate hop and light alcohol presence. Malt isn’t overly roasted not robust. Well balanced and enjoyable.

An herbal spiced aroma. Immediate flavor is sweet but creamy with a strange mixture of spices. This beer is all over the place. Not sure what to honk of this. Need to have again.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber. Red brown with a decent tan head. Watermelon bubblicious, light smokiness, alcohol and cardamom aromas. Fruity candy flavor with a slight ashy aftertaste. Lighter body with a fizzy feel. It wasn’t bad, just unexpected.

Pours a dark brown with a tan fizzy head, looks like coca cola. Aroma is weak but has a little bit of pumpkin and vanilla. Flavors of pumpkin and vanilla with lightly hoppy finish. Maybe a mix of other spices but they’re difficult to place.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a bomber. Pours black-ruby red and makes a nice tan head with good lacing. Aroma is of malt, cinnamon, chocolate and nutmeg. Taste is of malted barley, cocoa, and pumpkin. As others have said, it is more of a real pumpkin than a sweet pumpkin pie taste, which I prefer. Very good ale!
