I defo should’ve had this in autumn. Quite comforting. pumpkin spice flavour is pretty strong. Fascinating beer. You know, if you want to eat ice cream and drink beer at the same time, this is the beer.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle from drinkstore. Pours dark brown with thin dissipating head. Aroma is a hot whiskey - alcohol, caramel malts, cloves, spice, nutmeg. Flavour is caramel toffee sweet, bittering clove. Heavy body with abv managed well. Oil slick mouthful. Liquor feel. Low carbonation. Well balanced but I’m not a fan of the spicing.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2015 Aroma of dark malts,caramel, pumpkin, and a shitload of spices (nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, you name it). Flavour is malty and herbal sweetness. This really is a nicely balanced beer, I do not favour overly sweet or spiced brews, and this was just about right.

Bottle, 23 Club, Liverpool. Awesome Steadman art as ever on the label. Poured a reddy brown colour with a middling tan head. Nose had notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and fruits. Sweet rather boozy flavour with more spice,pumpkin and malts. Not quite won over by this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark, copper orange-brown coloured beer with a frothy but weak off white head. A spicy aroma, cinnamon and herbal, similar to a popular German aperitif! There is also a roasted malt and hint of pumpkin. Dry mouthfeel. The taste starts off with a resinous, tart hop flavour, grassy and fresh. Then the spice and herbs come through from the aroma, cinnamon leads the way, the finish layer of flavour is a slightly sweeter, roasted malt nutty flavour that then enhances the taste of the pumpkin. The end is somewhat taken over by the alcohol flavours, which leads to a long hoppy finish. Bottle from Beers of Europe.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.355l bottle from De Bierkoning. This is a near clear deep and dark almost ruby wood-brown colored one with a medium sized dark beige top. Smells really pumpkin sweet with lots of spicy nutmeg and cardamom. Must admit that I don’t have way to much experience with pumpkin beers but this smells really really inviting and good, just hope it’s not as sweet in the taste as the aroma. I glad to say that it’s not! In the taste it’s more licorice spicy. Quite salty as well! It has a average carbonation level and a good oily mouthfeel. Surprised that it’s as balanced between spicy, bitter and salty as it actually is. Lots of spices of course, but it’s not overwhelming or disturbing to the pumpkin. Enjoying the licorice here, as I did it expect that at all. Lots and lots of flavor going on here, and I have to say that this has to be within my top 2 tasted pumpkin beers. Yum! 11.10.2013
