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

22oz bottle care of IBrew2or3. Cheers, Dave! Pours a medium brown with an off-white head. Nose is pumpkin, cinnamon, and allspice with hints of roasted malts, and chocolate underneath. Flavor follows with a nice array of roast, chocolate, pumpkin, and pie spices, but nothing cloying or underewhelming about it. Nice idea and execution in this medium-bodied porter.

Pours a dark black color with a nice tan white head. Aroma is chocolate, spices, and roasted malts. The taste is medium to light bodied with a hint of pumpkin and chocolate malt. Really good beer.

DiarmaidBHK (3393) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Bottle from BevMo Tucson. Pours black with a thin brown head. Some pumpkin and side it’s on the nose. I get more of the roasted malt on the tongue but with some pumpkin as well. Clean finish. Nice!

nbutler11 (1267) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 24, 2012
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.

BOLTZ7555 (2799) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 7, 2012
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 didn’t 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!

AirForceHops (3174) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 27, 2012
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.

Red-orange pour with a tan head. The aroma has a lot of ginger, nutmeg and pumpkin notes. The flavor is full of pumpkin, ginger and light chocolate. Very spicy overall. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
