Bottle. Pours dark brown with white head. Aroma is vegetal, bread, grassy, earthy. Taste is medium bodied, med- carbonation, light spices, a bit of heat. Overall, better than most of this years pumpkin but still not great.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aromas of pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice, cinnamon, dark malts, roasted coffee and hints of chocolate. Pours black with a thin foam rim and noticeable alcohol legs. Taste is immediate pumpkin spice, cinnamon, pumpkin pie and some pines upfront. Mid palate brings dark malt complexity, chocolate, roasted malt, roasted coffee and fudge. Finishes harsh and boozy with residual pumpkin spice, roasted pumpkin and chocolate. Overall, this beer is very aggressive and has a ton of booziness to it. Lots and lots of chocolate notes collaborating with the pumpkin flavors. Lots of complexity and depth. Very impressive.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark brown with a reddish tint. Light toffee head.
Aromas of spice, especially nutmeg, and pumpkin.
Moderate to high carbonation profile with tight bubbling. Coffee and pumpkin come through clearly. Surprisingly light mouthfeel, despite the strong ABV.
Basically, surprisingly a winning brew considering my limited love for pumpkin spice ______.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a very dark brown and almost a black. Aroma is a decent mix of pumpkin pie spice. Nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice are all here. Flavor is again all pumpkin pie. You can almost taste the crust. Lots of spice but nothing over the top with an almost burnt or char malt toward the end. Decent pumpkin beer with plenty of spice and a nice rich malt.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours coppery brown with a slight beige head. Aroma: The expected spice for pumpkin, but it is a bit different from the usual. Full bodied, or nearly. Flavor is a version of the typical pie spice, but it’s different. Woody? Herby? Something. And it’s flavor is oaky or woody? Certainly a strong flavor that includes pie spice, but is a deal more. I’d say this is one of the best "pumpkin" ales I’ve had. Not to be missed.

Bottle from Beer Gonzo webshop, Coventry. Consumed at Lynn and Barrys, Saturday 1st August 2015 Mahogany with a light beige head, sweet, spicy and the pumpkin does show though it is a spicy little number. Drinks far to easy for a 10% beer but I rather liked it. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov13 3.3
