3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Received as an extra, poured into my Portsmouth tulip. Brownish orange in color with about a fingers worth of off-white head. Nose is composed primarily of spice, in particular nutmeg and cinnamon. There is also some light pumpkin and vanilla. Flavors starts of spice as well, but ends with a weird vegetal taste. Not all that pleasant. Moderate mouthfeel with good carbonation, slightly oily, and a moderate finish. Pretty run of the mill pumpkin ale. A lot of emphasis on the spice and not enough focus on the actual pumpkin. Decent beer, but I am happy getting it as an extra instead of buying it myself.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From 2014 batch. From cellar.
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.
Very little head, almost flat looking. Beer is a slightly hazy dark amber color. Aroma is of caramel malts and doughy yeast and cloves. Taste is strong, yet lightly sweet, lightly bitter and very lightly sour. Overall a good pumpkin ale with plenty of spice. I don’t believe ageing this beer did any good for it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a tulip at a bottle share last month.
The appearance was a nice looking bronzed orange color with a thin slim quarter finger white foamy head that quickly died off. Barely any lacing.
The smell had a strong big authentic pumpkin with a delicate ginger spice and a light vanilla rolling through.
The taste copied the smell and carried a nice sweet pumpkin but a delicate ginger spice that I really liked.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a good sessionability maybe leaning towards the sipping quality. The carbonation was extremely smooth and good.
Overall, what a nice imperialized pumpkin ale. If I lived in its distro, I’d probably be buying this all of the time. Good stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Crust. A mahogany brown pour. Aroma of butternut squash, spice, pine, malt, pumpkin and cloves. A flavor of pumpkin bread, spice, malt and alcohol. There is some warmth from the booze which there is plenty of. A bit sweet on the backend. A nice mix of strength, sweet and carbonation for a pumpkin.

GABF 2014. I don’t have a lot to say about it one. Standard pumpkin pie spices; cinnamon; cloves. Sweet, and it pulls off the traditional pumpkin beer well. Brown color.

3.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From bottle. Pours copper with little head. Smells strongly of cinnamon. Carbonated and light on the mouth, very little boozy flavor for a high ABV brew. There’s pumpkin in there along with all the expected spices. But the finish is surprisingly sweet. Very nice surprise.
