3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
October 30, 2011 - Volo Cask Days 2011 - gravity cask. Hazy orange with a nice frothy off-white lasting head. Smells like pumpkin, cinnamon heart candy and alcohol - hot & sweet. Taste is all about the spice, very little pumkin - sweet, too. Velvety mouthfeel, light bodied, good carbonation ... finishes hot and spicy, should be a valentine’s beer, not hallowe’en - and I liked it!!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask days 2011. The aroma was a punch in the face of spices! Just an overload of cinnamon, cardamon, and cloves. The flavor was another punch, but in the throat. Just a dry assault, loads of cinnamon and cardamon, felt like it was drying my throat as it was going down. Waaaaaay too strong for me.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On cask at Volo Cask Days 2011. Pours hazy golden, almost amber colour with very little head. Strong aroma of cinnamon and tasted much like a cinnamon schnapps poured in my ale. Couldn’t find any taste of pumpkin. Couldn’t have more than one of these.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2011-10-30. Lightly hazy brown body with a tiny white head. 3+ Very spicy aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg, muted malt below. 7+ Flavour is similoar, spicy overtones on a sweeter malty base. Average plus palate. Nice, it has a bit more oomph to it than the regular version, but I am undecided as to whether or not the malt can support that much spice. 7/3/7/3/14 Cask Days 2011, Toronto
