Poured out of a pumpkin. Aroma of spices: nutmeg, clove and a hint of cinnamon. Pours deep bronze with little head. Tastes of clove, nutmeg and hints of yam and pumpkin. A little too much spice for my taste but otherwise good.

20101106 tap at Newark. Bright orange color with lasting khaki head. Aroma is spicy, savory, and lightly toasty with some caramel maltiness. Ample eff for such a big beer goes a long way toward drinkability. Finishes a bit hot, but appropriately so. Solid effort, but the insane strength seems uncalled for.

This is truly the best pumpkin beer I’ve had. Very intense and rich aromas and flavors of pumpkin and spices. A true Belgian lovers delight.

Guest tap at stewarts.. Poured into a pint glass. Dark red in color. Nose of some spices and some malt. Taste is a little dissapointing.. Strong maltiness with some spices and some hops. Lacking the "pumpkin" note. Kind of boring. Overall.... I was excited to see this brew at stewarts but kind of let down once I tasted it....
