3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike.
The beer is clear and golden orange hued. Transparent with stagnant bubbles suspended in the liquid. Very slight white head that fades rapidly, leaving virtually no lacing.
The aroma brings alcohol, pumpkin, butternut squash, pie, autumnal spices.
Great flavor. Alcoholic warmth with at first, followed by a rush of delicate spices and pumpkin pie. I enjoy the flavor even more than the aroma.
Light to medium in body with moderately low carbonation. Alcohol presence is unobtrusive, especially considering the high gravity of the beer.
Overall, a great sipper. Very enjoyable.

Pours a nice golden hue. Aroma of milk chocolate and light pumpkin spice. Flavor is real nice. Lots of milky chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Subtle pumpkin with even more chocolate. Nice sweet spicy treat.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle acquired via trade with punkrkr27! Not shockingly, beautiful crystal clear 14 karat/straw pour. Aroma is all cocoa powder and honey. Dark and milk chocolate fill the nostrils and palate. Not a ton of pumpkin, nutmeg, or cinnamon in there...the Nestlé Quik qualities are too dominant. Alcohol is invisible. Very unique and good.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip. Braggot looks like flat Coca-Cola in my tulip, with a ruby tint. A brief small island of head disappears immediately.
Molasses, caramel malt, honey, nutmeg, all spice and a fair amount of booze in the aroma.
The flavor is smooth, but more gentle and less spicy than the aroma. Molasses, caramel malt, and a generous portion of honey sweetness control the flavor.
This has a relatively thin body, almost no carboanation, and a boozy nature to it. There is a sticky honey like resin that sticks on the inside of my mouth.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... Poured golden/amber with no head. Nose had hints of milk chocolate with honey and pumpkin spice sweetness. Had a lip gloss sort of candied sweetness going on. Chocolate was more evident in the nose with honey sweetness, malt, and pumpkin spice dominant in the flavor profile. Smooth, and went down very easy.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from clear light orange with little to no head. Aromas of cinnamon, pumpkin spices, nutmeg, and a little chocolate. Flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, and faint chocolate. Fair amount of booze and sweetness also. Tastes a little artificial.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma consists of honey, nutmeg, vanilla, pumpkin and cocoa powder. Appearance is clear golden orange with no head. Taste follows the nose, but isn’t as appealing. There’s more of a syrupy coca cola flavor. Feel is smooth, boozy, sticky. Warms the tongue. Not as tasty as the pumpkin braggot.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
First braggot review courteousy of Blake, not really sure how to properly rate this, gonna give it a try anyways. Pours a flat clear ruddy orange gold. Nose is highlight, I get cocoa powder, pumpkin, nutmeg, all spice, and cinnamon. A lot of similar flavors as the nose with a touch of honey and booze as well. Flat and uneventful on the palate, smooth nonetheless. Pretty solid overall, good balance in the cocoa and pumpkin.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle… Hazy golden braggot with sparse legwork. The aroma is a luxuriant intermingling of white chocolate, milk chocolate, vanilla, pumpkin pie spices and cinnamon. Medium to full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and gentle carbonation. The flavor provides sweet, succulent, pumpkin pie and vanilla sweetness offset by just the right level of woody bitterness. Finishes bittersweet. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!
