This beer combines the rich, roasty flavors of a porter with those found in a traditional pumpkin pie. The complex aroma practically jumps from the glass. An intriguing mix of chocolate and spice… The flavor is robust with notes of dark chocolate, pumpkin pie and a caramel sweetness accentuated by a generous addition of molasses to the boil. The interplay of the cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice gives this beer a very pleasant finish. Additional Information: The pumpkins used in this brew were grown at Larry Jacinto farms right down the street from the brewery. We were very excited when Larry told us that he had a great crop of pumpkins growing literally ˝ mile from the brewery. Once the pumpkins were seeded and quartered, we teamed up with the Gourmet Pizza shop in downtown Redlands to utilize their giant pizza oven to help roast all that pumpkin. This beer was a true community effort!

On tap at Harry’s Hofbrau. Like many pumpkin beers, this is really pumpkin spice and Porter. A lot of upfront allspice and nutmeg. Color is brown with some red or orange highlights. Tastes similar to smell. Get slight chocolate and minimal roast from the base beer. Not a bad pumpkin beer as far as they go.

I like cool whip on my pumpkin pie. This has the pumpkin the crust and the cool whip. Great nutmeg aroma. Sweet maltiness. Nice mouthfeel. Why didn't I buy another bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deep mahogany brown in color... Aroma of pumpkin, spices, cinnamon, nutty malts... Fairly strong nose... Flavor is spicy throughout, prevalent notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, molasses... Pumpkin is kind of secondary.... Finish with spices... Delicious ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark coffee hue.The pumpkin is lighter than the spices and is tasted throughout the beer. Spices are dominated by cinnamon which also dries out the beer. Other pie spies finish out the flavor. Tastes and smells great. Sometimes it reminds me of root beer. If your craving a pumpkin beer this will satisfy you. Deep dark and delicious.

A strong cinnamon pumpkin aroma. Reddish hue. This is an all-in pumpkin/Christmas ale. I get tons of nutmeg, some other spice I couldn’t identify (guessing allspice from the description) and pumpkin. A bit sweet. Not for me.

Bomber. Pours a dark brown color with a small head. Nose is pumpkin, and spicy with nutmeg and cinnamon.....and sweet. Taste is spicy with a pleasant combination of pumpkin and chocolate. Finishes on the same spicy pumpkin and chocolate notes. Finish is moderately long. Delicious! Quaff score 8 / 10

Pint at the brewery, definitely the highlight of the day after enjoying their taster of 8 beers. Interesting blend of pumpkin, spice, chocolate. Subtle, complex flavors without overwhelming.

Tap at H24. Great foam, deep amber brown pour. Great lacing. Excellent spiced pumpkin pie nose, rich and authentic. Taste is solid, nice spiced medley, somewhat chalky finish. Slight lemon, somewhat watery. Solid, impressive pumpkin beer. Simple. Not sticky or boozy or cinnamon dusty.
