Average pumpkin beer. Really hoping for more based on Fat Heads other beers. Not much to smell and even worse to look at; but redeems itself with good flavor(albeit on the sweet side).

Bottle- pours hazy amber, dense off white ring of foam. Nose is raw vegetal pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar and vanilla, cola as well. On the palate, heavier bodied with brown sugar, pumpkin pie, not overly spiced more vegetal pumpkin notes. Abv well hidden. This is what a Fall pumpkin beer should consist of

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Jstax ! Pours a deep amber color with a finger of eggshell foam. The nose is raw pumpkin, brown sugar and toasted malts. The palate follows with a nice sweet up front pumpkin pie roundness, brown sugar flavor dominates... as the sweetness rolls into the mid palate there is a good dose of allspice, nutmeg and a bit of cinnamon bitterness on the finish to clean up the sweetness. Not bad with alcohol very hidden.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle from Dutchís. Pours a cloudy orange-amber with a finger of off-white head that lasts only as a big ring. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, allspice, caramel, toast, and pumpkin. The flavor is mostly the same; good balance of spice, pumpkin, and sweet pie crust malts and sugars. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, malty, spicy mouthfeel. The 9% ABV is totally hidden. Very good pumpkin ale.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazy copper color with an off-white head. A really nice pumpkin spice aroma with some nutmeg and cinnamon not overwhelming though. Flavor doesnít really taste like an imperial pumkin. Itsí definitely got those nice sweet malt flavors, some pumpkin spices. Very smooth sweet pumpkin spices on the back end. Mouthfeel is mellow carbonation is average. Overall this is a solid awesome pumpkin beer but not quite an imperial. It hides the alcohol really well.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle from Dutchís. Pours a clear dark amber/copper color with a small, fizzy, disappearing beige head. The aroma and flavor has a big burst of pumpkin pie spices, sweet notes, vanilla, some lightly toasted crust, the spices tingle on the palate for a while. There are quite a few solid pumpkin beers coming out of Ohio and this is no exception.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours orangish brown with white head and no lacing. Aroma smells exactly like pumpkin pie. Taste is more similar to pumpkin pie in a hard candy form because of the aftertaste. Not bad, just not my favorite style of beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a murky dark cherry color with very little head. Aromas are pumpkin pie spices, brown sugar, and toffee. Taste is very sweet. A bit overpowering but not too bad. Strong cinnamon and ginger taste with lots of chewy malt and toffee. Finish is very smooth considering the high abv. Thick body, chewy and creamy mouthfeel. This is a big pumpkin beer thatís really good but just a little too sweet.
