pours dark brown with a medium creamy tan head. aroma is very muddled and spicy...nutmeg, cinnamon...slightly doughy. flavor is excessively spicy and perfumey with some bitterness and a bit of pumpkin. mouthfeel is light/medium with a dry muddled spice finish. this tastes like a xmas ale gone wrong with pumpkin added. drainpour.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This pumpkin brew pours a very dark ruby red color. Not a whole lot of head accompanies the beer, but it does leave some sticky and cascading lace. The nose features pumpkin, chocolate, caramel, light coffee and a bit of seasonal spices like cinamon and nutmeg. The body is definitely on the fuller side, with a noticable, lively mouthfeel. The flavors don’t contain as much pumpkin as I’d like. There are some hints of caramel, coffee, toasted barley, cinamon, nutmeg, cloves and a touch of alcohol. The beer finishes strong, with notes of pumpkin and heavy on the spices. This is a pretty decent pumpkin beer, but nothing really all that outstanding.

Bottle shared as road soda. Drank from bottle so no comments on appearance. Aroma of massive pumpkin, vegetal, cinnamon. Flavour is over moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from the Beer Koning, Amsterdam. The aroma is rich malty and with a hint of pumpkin. The flavour is weak bitter with a resin, fruit, pumpkin and somewhat medicinal palate. Not a favourite. Maybe pumpkin lovers will buy a case, otherwise we tickers will tick.

Dark nut brown in color, like a deep caramel. Soft bitter taste with hints of coffee and pumpkin. NOT like a sweet pumpkin latte of that's what you're thinking!!

Bottle. Pours a reddish ruby color with a small head. Nose is cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin. Taste is cinnamon with nutmeg, allspice and clove... and rather sweet. Finishes on the same tasting notes with a short sweet ending. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Pours a dark orange brown with a tan head and aroma of pumpkin and spices. Taste is roasty, of spices, with cinnamon, malt, cloves, brown sugar, and pumpkin leading to a long, spice finish. Nice fall brew, not overwhelming while strong flavored

Drank from bottle 8/16
Reminds me of an American strong ale with pumpkins spices. The pumpkin aroma of the beer is faint. Also smells of vanilla and allspice present. Tastes like a strong ale with little pumpkin, vanilla, bourbon, and some nuts. Overall good beer. I enjoyed how the pumpkin did not overkill this beer. And coming in at 9% strong to boot. Good everyday pumpkin beer for the fall

Bottle from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Price sticker not on the bottle and the receipt is gone, but I think it was around $2.10 for the 12 oz single.
Pours reddish brown with an inch of beige head.
Smells of deep pie spices: nutmeg, cinnamon... maybe some crust.
Very sweet alcohol with some pumpkin spice, definite crust, and strong lingering alcohol flavor. Almost medicinal finish.
