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!

Sweet with pumpkin spice smelling. Orange color with reddish tint, not much for head. Spicey cinamon/nutmeg flavor; sweet with an alcohol kick.

Good but not as good as the regular pumpkin. Very nice looking with a nice aroma of pumpkin pie spices. Clear amber with a small head. Flavor is pumpkin pie sweetness with a dry finish.

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....

Flat-bodied, deep amber brew.Wonderful pumpkin pie aroma, full of allspice, cinnamon, and jabs of ginger. Great synergy of pumpkin, ginger, allspice, and hints of clove creates a well-rounded flavor. Top-notch pumpkin beer. Alcohol is well masked yet accentuates the spices. Quaffable and complex.

Growler sampled on 10/25/08 thanks to MrBendo: Pours a hazy copper bronze with a thin, spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet toasty caramel toffee and pumpkin spice. Body starts with good fullness and light pumpkin flavor with lots of sweet caramel malt. Well balanced with good complexity. A nice pumpkin beer.

Thanks to MrBendo for the growler share at Kramer tasting. Pours a hazy deep amber with a thinning head. Aroma is instantly ginger snap cookies, with lots of cinnamon spices, clove and nutmeg seems on the low side for a pumpkin ale- ok sweet caramel as well. Toasted malts, caramel sharp crystal spice becomes well rounded in the flavor with more cinnamon and a less pronounced ginger character- all spice and clove in the end and an ok earthy piny bitterness.

(11/8/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in North Wales. Muddy dark brown color. Aroma of pumpkin, malt, spices (cinnamon, nutmeg) and some fruity esters notes. Very sweet flavor with some pumpkin, spices, sugar and alcohol. Medium-bodied.

This stuff was great. Lots of spicy yeast, fruity esters, spice, sweet malts, orange, pepper, some toasted nuts, and maybe banana. A ton going on in this one. Orange brown pour, hazy with a thin sticky head. The flavors are sweet and spicy. Lots of yeast and fruit. Really a standout to me at Pumpkin Fest.

Growler from pepsican. Thanks. Poured a hazy brown-orange color. the head was off white. Smelled of corn sweetner, wet dog, cereal grain, and a bit of spice. Medium bodied with alcohol warmth. I tasted clove, banana, cinnamon, and raw alcohol. Imagine a pumpkin infused vodka with too much added spice.
