22oz bottle. Hazy amber pour with a small sized off white head. Pumpkin and spices...all around on the subtle side. Some vanilla and caramel in the taste.

NikkTwist (1390) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Draft at Eulogy. Clear red brown with a foamy white head. Aroma is of sweet pumpkin, but first taste brought some unexpected bitterness. Pumpkin spice. Additional red fruits from the malt but quite a lot of bitter finish from the hops. Dark syrupy notes. Gentle dark sugar pumpkin with a big hop punch. Mixed feelings. Well blended, but not really to my taste.

(Bottle). The aroma is abundantly spiced with note of alcohol. The flavor is overwhelmed by the spices instead of pumpkin. The alcohol is warming and nice for a cool fall day. The Long Trail Brewmaster series has been very impressive but this one falls a little short. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alcohol and bitterness was overpowering at the start. Once the beer warms a little it smoothed out. Typical pumpkin were taste.

Smell is like a pumpkin beer, so is taste. High malt complexion. Creamy and good but it disappears too quickly.
