On tap at Live Oak. Brown pour with a big tan head. Aroma is lots of baking spice, caramel, and brown sugar. Taste is almost smokey, more pumpkin pie, and a weird finish.

Bottle: When drinking this one I think of some old and stale Chicken in a Biscuit crackers. Pumpkin spices are too light. Has a bit of roasted character to it. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Thin finish, pale spices, pale roasted malts, but clean otherwise. Pretty much a snoozer.

6-pack picked up at Cheers with Zac. I was surprised by the lower ratings here because for me this was a nice pumpkin brew. I liked how it wasn’t just overpowering spice. This had some of the vegetal pumpkin notes to add some depth. Plus the base dunkel was nice too. I would happily buy this each fall/winter.

Pours a dark leathery brown in the glass. Spicy pumpkin spice aroma. Flavor of toasty malt with an aftertaste of more spicy malt notes like a dark pumpkin spice bread with a touch of molasses. Overall, an extremely delicious brew. Thanks BarZigKin!

Not a bad mix. The aroma of dark malts and pumpkin hit the nose. It has a nice caramel color with a white head. Palate is average weight with good carbonation. It also had a smooth character. Flavors were blended well and subdued in a good way. It allowed the Dunkel side of the malts to come through without hitting you over the head with pumpkin. Some spice on the finish. A good offering.

Nice twist on the usual pumpkin beer. The pie spices blend nicely with the dark bready dunkel base.
