3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown color with a thin tan head. Aroma is pumpkin pie spices, nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavor is very sweet with a bit of spice. Somewhat pie like in flavor with a body thatís a bit thin. Makes for a pleasant sipper, but a touch on the sweet side for me.

Pours a light copper color with a short white head. Aroma is pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a hint of vanilla. Taste is much the same - smooth, and not as heavy and malty as something like Pumking.

Bottle. Poured clear orange copper color with a large off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid to heavy doughy pumpkin pie spice aroma. Medium to full body with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy balanced pumpkin pie spice flavor with a medium to heavy spice sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Good seasonal beer.

pours an orange/amber with a medium off white head. aroma has nice pumpkin and mild spice with a hint of brandy. flavor has nice pumpkin...vanilla plays well with roasty malts and comes across as dough/graham cracker...brandy sweetness creeps in and balances the spice nicely. Mouthfeel is full and a bit syrupy with a slightly sweet and slightly spice pumpkin finish that lingers to earthy oak. very nice!

Draft sample at FOBAB 2013. Pours a completely clear darkish gold with a bit of off-white head that fizzles quickly into a ring. Massive spicy aroma and flavor- cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger- with some caramel, apple, graham cracker, brown sugar, and toast. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a spicy mouthfeel. Really amped-up pumpkin beer.

Bottle courtesy of Tmongoose, thanks man! Copper pour with a small white head. The aroma is incredible: pumpkin pie with notes of oak and brandy. The taste doesnít disappoint either! Big cinnamon and pumpkin notes with the brandy coming through in the finish. Very complex and delicious! Abv is well-hidden too. Very good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap: The aroma consists of caramel, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and graham crackers. Itís a transparent amber with a two finger creamy off-white head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of caramel and toffee. The finish has a nice combination of nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, graham cracker, and vanilla. I suppose thereís some brandy in here but itís not much. Itís medium bodied with soft carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Overall, a really good pumpkin beer with minimal barrel aging notes.
