3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Very sweet, overpoweringly so. The sugar overwhelms the more subtle pumpkin and spice flavors. Too strong and too sweet to drink much of this.

on tap at Maple Shade - tastes like a strong pumpkin ale. You can really taste the alcohol. Good but I like the regular pumpkin ale better.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Jewel like dark ruby color with no head. The bottle only gave a soft "pop" when I took off the cork. Nose of spice and alcohol. Very smooth mouth feel and nice warming alcohol. Pie spice flavors with cinnamon and nutmeg, but the spice is pretty subtle. Dark caramel and molasses sweetness. There is an alcohol kick with out being intrusive.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle:   Dark caramel hued amber, moderate frothy tannish head, nice lacing.   Cinnamon and nutmeg up front, pumpkin pie towards the back, even with a bit of crust.   Smells great!   Even seems to have a touch of
barrel aging, or perhaps rum?   Probably my imagination.   Nice malty body, spicy, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, with actual pumpkin pie like flavor.   I don’t think I have had one this good since the early versions of Pumking.
Body and mouthfeel are full to moderate.   Nice malty and spicy finish.   Warming but not alcoholic.   Good stuff, but certainly very pricey!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy amber with a medium lt tan head. Aroma has some fruit and spices...a bit of pumpkin but more like mild tart cherry with mild funk. Flavor is slightly tart...almost a blend of cherry and pumpkin with some muddled spice and funk. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is spicy/tart.
