tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - OCT 31, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2014 Bottle: burnt, hazy copper with some lighter amber-orange hints near the bottom; large, chunky beige head lasts for a while & leaves nice spots of fat lacing all down the glass. Aroma is heavily spiced; moderate nutmeg, cinnamon, & clove with a hefty dose of toasted malts, brown sugar, & sweet molasses. I pick up some light red apple & lemon rind notes somewhere in there, too, bordering on small but sharp tartness in the finish. Taste is kind of yammy up front with the expected spices of nutmeg & clove, lighter on the cinnamon. Some brown sugar notes fade into a strong, mid-palate bitterness that comes along with ashy leaves & mild, charred tobacco... what ?! Spicy cinnamon & nutmeg finish, still with a lasting, strong bitterness. Mild metallic notes, too. Yikes... smells alright, but the flavor was a deal breaker. Not so keen on it.

Strangebrewer (1133) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2016
bottle 7.3%. Poured hazy red-amber with a skim head. Sweet malty aroma with some spice. Medium body, lower carbonation, a bit sticky lingering finish. Grainy malts with sweet toffee and pumpkin pie spice, peppery and a little tart

EyeAmBaldman (461) - Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2015
Pours a clear amber from the bottle with a thick off white head. Aroma is caramel, nuts and grain. Medium sweetness on the tongue offset by medium bitterness. Spice and caramel in the mouth, medium-bodied, creamy with lively carbonation and a bitter back end. This is a decent pumpkin ale, a little on the heavy side for this style, I think, but decent and noteworthy.

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, biscuit, bread, hints of spice, cinnamon, touch of clove. Taste was a mix of carfamel, toffee, slight earth into lots of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg into more sweet fruity notes, finishing fairly spicy.

jcr (2527) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle. Amber body with a fizzy, off-white head, rapidly diminishing. Sharp aroma of pumpkin spices — all spice, cinnamon, clove. Notes of wood and toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, sticky texture, moderate carbonation. Lots of alcohol in the taste along with mounds of pumpkin pie spices that could, indeed, kill a unicorn.

TheBear11D (365) - Michigan, USA - NOV 9, 2014
The Unicorn Killer pours a clear bronze color with a thick light tan head that lasts a good while. The aroma is a sharp citrus with pumpkin and spices. The flavor is also citrus with pumpkin and spices. Overall this is a nice beer.

BrownALEx (410) - Portland, Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2014
On tap at Seven Monks in Traverse City. This is the best pumpkin/spice beer I have had. It is big and bold. Wonderful dark maroon pour with a wonderful spicy nose. Taste is bold spice with a hint of pumpkin. Body is thick. Overall this beer packs a punch, will get again.

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home prior to getting some Greek food. Appearance is a very cloudy dark brownish orange with a robust slightly tan head. Aroma is rich in pumpkin and spice, but mostly pumpkin. Taste I'm not really a fan of, it's like there's something wrong with this one. Soapy like flavor mixed with pumpkin, doesn't taste especially good, more like a medicine.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle:   Uh oh, that is one huge head, super foamy... Musty spicy nose, a bit like an old cupboard.   Muted spices on the tongue, spritzy, a little astringent straw in there as well.   Guessing this one got a minor infection.   Spices are muted, a bit over carbonated, with some astringent straw aspects.   Unfortunately didn’t hold up over time...

bottle - Pours hazy orange with a big light tan head and ample lacing. It has an interesting fruity aroma. Because I know it’s a pumpkin beer, that’s what I was expecting, but perhaps because of how it combines with the hop aromas it almost smelled like berries to me. There’s also some spice. The flavor is moderately bitter with pumpkin and spice in the background. Good beer.
