Pours out a nice orangey color with not much of a head. Aroma is of some nice pumpkin spices, vanilla, nutmeg and some sweetness. Taste is of a solid dose of pumpkin spices, much like the aroma. Body slightly light.

Bottle. Poured an amber color with a creamy white head that left quickly. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, with hint of pumpkin. Good pumpkin flavor with cinnamon and nutmeg, but not overwhelming spices. Good beer!

Tap, pours a dark copper to medium brown, aroma is spicy and flavour is as well, it was a bit light on the spices and it finished with kind of strong ale like flavour, it was fairly thick and not too smooth, overall it was an okay offering

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy copper color with a tight short white head. The aroma is of the pumpkin pie spices; cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and light clove, allspice. Taste has caramel malt sweetness upfront followed by the flavors of the pumpkin and the pumpkin pie spices of cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg. There is a very light bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

Its the spicy type of pumpkin ale, loads of nutmeg in the nose. Plenty of spice, zest and zing in the palate too. Very fresh tasting and tasty.

On draft at Bacchus, following a nice spin along the Walkill Valley Rail Trail. I recommend both the trail and stopping in at Bacchus. Lots of clove (or is that allspice? I don’t see clove in the description) plus some cinnamon and pumpkin. Nicely balanced, and one of the better pumpkin brews imo.

Bottle. I believe this is a 2012 new release. Pours clear copper with a big white head, a bit of lacing, and active carbonation. Aroma is really nice. There is all kinds of spice.. nutmeg.. cinnamon.. cardamon.. pumpkin.. really nice. Taste is pretty spicy with some cinnamon, nutmeg, a little pumpkin.. but not sweet. One of the better pumpkin styles of the year imo.
