Tap at the Bruery Provisions. Lots of pumpkin with some crusty pie. Spices are really balanced. Sweet caramel. Easy drinking dark malt. A smooth beer with a medium full body.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours murky brown with a light beige head. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg. Afraid this could be another pumpkin spice covering a mediocre base beer. Yeah, kind of. Can’t detect any flaws, but the base caramel malt is overpowered by cinnamon, nutmeg spice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep brown in color with a rich head. Toasted malts and spice are a mild but pleasant combination. Not overpowering. Good balance. A respectable fall beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma was of roasted malt, like Belgian yeast, and pumpkin flesh. Flavor was more fleshy than spicey, mainly a belgianesque Porter though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown pour with small cream colored head. Aroma of malts, caramel, pumpkin, nutmeg, allspice and faint chocolate. Taste of toffee, vanilla, chocolate, caramel, nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin and bread dough. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel, poorly balanced. A little cloying on the finish as well.

Pours a walnut-dark color. Light lacing, moderate, stable head. Interesting veggie-like aroma. Taste is mostly roasted pumpkin seeds, pretty good! Heavy mouthfeel, long aftertaste, long. Pretty good beer, the wife loved it!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Stein’s Beer Garden. Rich pumpkin and spice aroma. I notice the body before the taste: super smooth and rich. Taste is rich (yes, this is beer is rich) with pumpkin, light spice, and sweet malts. Not as sweet as one might expect overall. Very good.

So many aggressive pumpkin beers out there and, although solid, this one just doesn’t stand up. Dark copper/mahogany pour with a small eggshell head. Cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel, ginger, and allspice are noticeable authentic pumpkin flavors. Love the story in the deScription, just wish I could taste it. Still would have another...
