COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This extra strong spicy Belgian pumpkin ale is truly a beer from the farm. It is unfiltered with a beautiful Burnt orange color. Ichabod’s nose is filled with flavors of the harvest including clove, allspice, cinnamon, and nutmeg. The palette is sweet with hints of roasted pumpkin, and caramel. There is a warming finish that is both fruity and aromatic. Over 6 pounds of pumpkin per barrel were added right to the mash. Drink enough and you’ll lose your head too!

Outstanding pumpkin! Light & creamy mouthfeel despite the high abv. Very sweet & still spicy. This works in every way! Very comparable to pumking! Love it!

Pours a deep amber/ruby with a medium white head. Aroma has yeasty fruitiness and mild clove and nutmeg. Flavor follows suit...more spices are evident...particularly allspice...some mild fruity/roasty malts...very belgian. Mouthfeel is full and the finish is very spicy...clove/allspice dominate.

Jesterdeal (1923) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 24, 2011
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.
