Pours a clear brown color with a thin white head. Aroma of roasted butternut squash, nutty malts and earthy hops. Flavor is roasted butternut squash, light chocolate, almonds, and chewy malts with a earthy hop finish on the back end. Pretty tasty Fall style beer.

Tallahassee, Fl - on tap at the Cider Lounge - adjacent to Fermentation Lounge. Murky dark brown pour, off-white head, nice lacing. Nutty aroma with some ripening vegetable notes. Flavor has some dates, a hint of chocolate, some mealy vegetable-like notes - that I can equate to butternut squash since I know that that is what is in it. The wet hopped version was pretty much the same with a hint of mint in the back end. Chewy mouthfeel. Good to see them brewing again.
