COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich amber color with aroma of sweet pumpkin pie and savory spices with hints of sweet malt. Rich and creamy with a chewy mouthfeel that you can sink your teeth into. Flavors of pumpkin up front then sweet malt, pie crust, spice, hints of brown sugar and a clean finish. We stopped just short of the whipped cream. But we like the way you think.

Tap at Fat Headís PDX. A: Dark amber color, thin white head. N: Pumpkin, all-spice, cardamom, toffee, graham cracker, cinnamon, and plenty of that characteristic cola flavor. T: Sweet and spicy. Lightly bitter. M: Medium body, no alcohol, soft carbonation. O: Solid pumpkin beer. I find it similar, but slightly superior to, Elysianís The Great Pumpkin. I wish this didnít have that cola flavor, however.

Tasted from bottle. Pours amber with off white head. Aroma is cinnamon, all spice, and other other spices. Taste is similar to aroma. On the spicier side of pumpkin beers but good pumpkin and spice flavor. A mild bitterness with some earthly and caramel flavors as well. Overall a very good pumpkin beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - Pours amber with a foamy light tan head. Nose is baking spice, squash, and a little vanilla. Taste is super balanced with light bread, vanilla, and a bready, pumpkin flavor. Thin and mellow carbonation. Pretty good!

A little too much cinnamon makes this a bit more bitter than your average pumpkin ale, but otherwise delicious. Good flavor and easy to drink, despite being 9% ABV. Another great Fat Heads brew!

Bottle. Clear amber under a small cream colored head. The typical pumpkin ale aroma with a strong note of alcohol and some pink gum. Lightly astringent from alcohol and slightly numbing. Toasty and malty with heavy brown sugar. The spicy flavors cover any boozy burn that might otherwise be associated with an amber beer of this magnitude.

12 oz bottle. Pours a fairly clear copperish amber with a large off white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma and taste of pumpkin, caramel, malt, clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, vanilla, brown sugar, graham cracker. Aroma is better than the taste, as the taste is a bit boozy with the alcohol coming through pretty strong. Medium bodied. Creamy and smooth texture. Moderate to slightly high carbonation. Long finish of caramel malts, pumpkin and spices. Overall a very good pumpkin ale. Definitely delivers on the pumpkin pie taste, although a bit too much alcohol present in the taste. But at 9% it should be expected. Recommended!

Poured a deep cooperish orange color with aromas of all spice,,pumpkinnspice,,light malt and some cinnamon. Flavors are popourie with all spice, light leaves. Interesting but the spices are too dominant.
