3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Beer Stop - 12 oz bottle. Pours a dark copper with a nice thick off-white head that hangs around a while. Aroma has a nice autumn spice bent to it with hints of nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice. Flavor is rich with the expected autumn spices and is accompanied by some solid vanilla notes. Mouthfeel has a nice solid creaminess to it. Pretty solid pumpkin ale....a style which I am thankful is only around for a short amount of time.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
:Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass amber red with a nice off white head.
Aroma is fresh baked pie and subtle hops.
Flavor is cinnamon pumpkin. Thank goodness the clove is underdone because they ruins a seasonal (for me at least). Light nutmeg & malty bread as well.
Not a huge fall pumpkin brew fan but this is hugely well done. And might add the 9% is masked quite well. Kinda spooky how it catches up with ya...

Okay...another big-bodied, pumpkin ale; yet, it is done quite well. These heavy pumpkin ales always remind of bourbon for some reason. Nice, full bite, and a beer I donít mind sinking my teeth into despite these dreadful pumpkin beers not being my favorite thing. Serving size: 12oz bottle.

Poured a dark brown and copper with a small head. Strong aroma of pumpkin spice, primarily nutmeg. Rich flavor matches aroma with strong pastry like notes. Making it almost pie like. Balanced sweetness with spice within the finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark copper amber color with small off-white head and minimal oily lacing. Aroma is huge and all pumpkin. Flavor is liquid pumpkin pie, brown sugar, cinnamon and rich malts. Very good overall, and at $11/4pk is still a better deal than Pumking.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an amber brown with little to no carbonation and no head. I normally wouldnít like his but it works extremely well for the style. Aroma is pumpkin spice to the max with some caramel accents. Flavor is very full with a rich pumpkin pie flavor. Tastes like pumpkin pie with whipped cream. Delicious!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours cloudy dark orange, almost no head or lacing. Aroma nutmeg, cinnamon, graham cracker, pumpkin, slightly earthy, brown sugar. Taste faint earthy bitter, sweet graham cracker, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, bready, dark caramel, slight roast note, canned pumpkin. Mouthfeel full body, medium high carbonation, but of alcohol astringency, but not much warming, finish is balanced, slightly favoring sweet side. Overall real good, complex pumpkin pie flavors, but not cloying or overpowering, very well made, my favorite pumpkin beer.
