My friend Robert brought this one back for me from a trip to Arizona. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a medium sized foamy tan head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was dryish with a strong cinnamon and nutmeg presence and a peppery undertone. The flavor was toasty with dry cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper, cola and more nutmeg. Very long dry spicy finish. Medium body. The spices really overwhelm everything else. Ok.

22 oz. bottle from a trade with BOLTZ7555. Dark brown nearly black in color with small white head that vanished quickly. Not much retention. Nose has lots of cinnamon and nutmeg, light roasted malt. Taste is mostly spice with pumpkin being rather subdued. Malt has good sweetness. Body is medium with carbonation giving the brew a touch of a creamy texture. Lingering spice and sweet malt aftertaste. Overall pretty nice.

On draft. Dark brown pour, tinge of red, small tan head. Smells great! Cinnamon, roasty, slight pumpkin, nutmeg. Flavors of mild chocolate, allspice, some coffee. Very good & a nice surprise from this brewery.

Another tasty entry in the pumpkin beer category. Pours very dark brown. Slight head, virtually no lacing. Good pumpkin and spice flavor. Recommended.

Impressed and surprised by this given their other offerings! Chestnut and mahogany pour with a dense khaki head. Nice freshly grated nutmeg, cocoa, coffee, cinnamon, and vanilla. The flavors meld incredibly well although I didnít get a lot of pumpkin, just the spice. Not at all aggressive but assertive enough to remember. Well crafted albeit a little sweet. Medium mouthfeel. Nice start to the fall and will be excited for other special releases from them!

Bottle from AZ Wine. Pours mahogany with a trim beige head. Smells of pie spice and pumpkin. Tastes of each with added notes of sweet malt, licorice, cream. Pumpkin without being overly sweet. Nice.

DMLINAZ (303) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Definitely one of the more interesting pumpkin beers Iíve had. Pours a deep brown. Aroma and flavor match: sweet malts, caramel, roasted, pumpkin (of course), other spices. Itís smooth with light carbonation and a long finish. (9/20/12 Total Wine fall beer tasting.)

Bottle from BevMo Tucson. Pours black with a thin brown head. Some pumpkin and side itís on the nose. I get more of the roasted malt on the tongue but with some pumpkin as well. Clean finish. Nice!
