Leighton (10538) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2013
Bottle shared with Sr. Jackson in Canaan, NH. Pours bright copper-red with a fine, white cream head. Sugars and autumn spices in the aroma, definite sweet pumpkin notes. Big sweet flavor with pleasant pumpkin, nutmeg, wintery spices now, a bit of alcohol. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish, lightly warming, with cinnamon and nutmeg, mild dryness. Nicely spiced overall. I like sweet pumpkin beers, generally, and I think this one is good stuff.

DocLock (7731) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Draft at Capone’s. The pour was burnt sienna orangy, more toward brown, with minimal head. Nose was intense pumpkin puree and spices. Tasted rich, on the sweet side, with a big pumpkin flavor matched with not overwhelming spiciness and true graham cracker flavor in the aftertaste. This was world class.
