mansquito (3513) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2014
The Beer Store, Southampton PA tap: Pours amber with a small whitish head. Aroma is a whole lot of pumpkin spice, vanilla, and a hefty helping of sticky maltiness. Taste is somewhat sweet. Vanilla is prominent. Body is pretty nice and gooey. A good beer to drink while browsing for more beer at the beer store.

This is a damn good pumpkin! Very good copper pour w/ a white head that leaves a ring of lacing. Fall spices enticingly fill the aroma! The taste is just as robust! It’s a semi sweet beginning w/ the pumpkin pie flavors that fade into some drier fall spices. Complex, tasty, & the 7.3% is well hidden!

Transfer from BA review on 10-14-13- Poured from growler into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours an orange copper color with a one finger off white head composed of big carbonation bubbles. The head fades rather quickly leaving a faint level of foam on the surface of the beer and a very light level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma big of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Along with the huge spice smell is a rather strong roasted pumpkin smell. Mixed with these are some lighter and sweeter aromas and a biscuit smell. The sweeter aromas are a mix of brown sugar and caramel, with the overall aroma taking on a heavily spiced pumpkin pie aroma. Taste – The taste begins with a smooth roasted pumpkin flavor with some brown sugar and biscuit mixed within. Right from the start the spice is quite strong with all the spice aromas that were detected in the nose in the flavor as well. As the taste advances the spice gets even stronger, with the addition of a bit of clove to the taste. Along with the spice getting stronger so too does some of the sweeter and roasted flavors, with some molasses coming to the tongue. In the end some hop flavors of a grassy, earthy and citrus nature come to the tongue, and with a decently strong boozy taste coming to the tongue one is left with a heavily spiced and roasted rummy pumpkin pie flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium to slightly creamier side with a carbonation level that was rather average to just below average. Both were rather nice for the roasted, spiced and boozy tastes of the brew and helped make it a rather slower sipper. Overall – This beer is rather heavily spiced, big of roasty pumpkin pie and decently heavy of some rum. Not super balanced, but a rather interesting slow sipping pumpkin beer.

NikkTwist (1708) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle at a Fado tasting event. Dark orange pour with a foamy ring. Tastes darker than it looks. Long neck pumpkin squash. Pumpkin Pie Spice. Fairly balanced. Bit more hops than I was expecting (but that is not a bad thing!) Good for the style but there are quite a few better.

Beerman6686 (4596) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2014
This poured an orange color with a white head. Aroma was of pumpkin spices, mainly cinnamon, and flesh. Flavor was on the fleshy side, toasted and mild spice, OK.
