Bottle from the Pennsylvania Underground Beer Railroad. Pours deep copper with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is intense pumpkin puree, spice, caramel malt. Tastes of intense pumpkin, hefty mouthfeel, well integrated pumpkin spice. This one kicks ass.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amazing how a beer with this much alcohol can have no aroma at all. I put my nose almost into the beer and could only pick up a faint hint of cinnamon. Pour was a nice enough dark gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was thin and one dimensional. Not bad but not very complex. The cinnamon and brown sugar are the main flavors with some malty sweetness in the front. Finish is thin and slightly spicy. Does hide the alcohol incredibly well...unfortunately itís because the beer doesnít have big flavor. Mild carbonation. Average.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft, pours hazy light brown with small white head along with minimal lacing. Flavor is spicy cinnamon apple for most part with too much nutmeg also. Thin and ashy aggressive with more of a fireball finish than authentic pumpkin. Aroma was very light and not nearly as heavy handed as flavor but nothing great here. It would be nice if every brewer decided to stop making pumpkin beers for a year or two. Everyone could use the break.

Pours a darker, amber color with a tan head. Aroma is of pumpkin, caramel malts, and a hint of alcohol. Flavor is strong of the pumpkins and some spices. Has a little bit of warming on the finish as well.

Iíve completely avoided pumpkin brews so far this fall (not a fan), but got this as part of a mix six grocery and was pleasantly surprised. Toasty, pumpkin spice, brown sugar aroma. Tastes are even pumpkin, bread, caramel. Good sipper.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Fat headís Spooky Tooth is a rich deep copper mostly clear brew that has a firm head of tan bubbles. Nose is pumpkin, cloves, a touch of cinnamon and a nice malty background. The taste is natural pumpkin with a good amount of pumpkin pie spice. it reminds me of a really good pumpkin pie with a nice alcohol hit at the end. The body is soft and full. a really good pumpkin beer. possibly my new favorite.
