Awesome. Smooth, rich, gourdy! The appearance is dark and inviting with a frothy thick head. Perfect on a chilly fall evening. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured hazy dark brown orange color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet spice and pumpkin aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth pumpkin spice flavor with a medium to heavy spice sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where met.

12 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC. Cola-like brown pour with a thin off-white. Aroma of roasted pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices. Taste of dark roasted malt with a finish of roasted pumpkin, nutmeg, and alspice. Good overall.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... Poured dark brown with a light, khaki head. Nose had lots of spice, with roast and pumpkin. Notes of charred grains with loads of spices that worked with a nice bitterness. Squashy and sweet, and pie-like spices. Dark sugars like caramel which added a nice touch.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft pour - pours jet black-brown, tight tan head, fully lasting. Big cinnamon, all-spice, cloves on the nose. Medium palate with a slightly dry finish, cool pumpkin at the very end. Taste is of a spiced ale, more pumpkiny as it warms. Good deal, less of a pumpkin pie, nice autumn warmer.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours nearly oil black with a thin white head that doesn’t leave much lacing. The aroma has very pleasant notes of pumpkin and spice. The taste doesn’t quite follow through. It has the nice hints of pumpkin in the front but morphs into a russian imperial at the finish. I would typically appreciate complexity but this is more like confusion. I’m not really sure what this beer is trying to be. Certainly different at least.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown with a thin off-white head. Aroma is of spritzy pumpkin-pie spices... and bubblegum... a lot! The bg is there in the taste too, but it’s more an earthy, boozy, astringent spice beverage. $2/12oz

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottles from Capone’s and Craft Ale House. Pours turbid mahogany, appearing dark brown through indirect light with ruby edges, and 1-finger tan head. Nose is fruity malt, pumpkin spice and puree. Tastes malty, with a pumpkin flavor that underscores but integrates well with the fruity maltiness. The pumpkin is a supporting player in this, and it is delicious.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Appearance is a burnt orange brown and clear through light with a fairly big tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, toasted malts, chocolate and a woodiness. Mild chocolate and pumpkin coming in a little stronger in the middle and the pumpkin pie spices come towards the end with some coffee and chocolate. Mouthfeel very slick with low carbonation. Overall this is pushing one of my favorite pumpkin beers so far; the pumpkin and spice flavors are not overwhelming and that chocolate note really gives a nice dimension.
