3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours cinnamon with a thin white head without leaving much lacing. The aroma is quite flavorful full of spice. The taste has decent complexity. It’s very spicy on the nose but the finish and the palate leave just a little bit to be desired. I see this appears to be a brand new beer. I’ve had a ton of pumpkins and I would say that this most closely resembles River Horse’s. Pretty good overall.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2012 Pours golden. The lacing sticks around but does ever so sink. Smells and tastes of rye bread, nutmeg, allspice and bread yeast. Alright.

(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.

so i am not sure if the brush and barrel series is same as brewmaster but here i go. 22oz bomber enjoyed in a standard pint glass. A darker colored brownish orange with a nice one finger small bubble head. Aroma is a best hits or pumpkin beer with clove and all spice but not ever the top. The taste is a full body malt with light touches of bitter and brown sugar. For me the greatness comes in the full satisfying body that more pumpkin beers should have. Pumpkin beer to be enjoyed on a cold VT evening. 8abv not noticeable. a good all around example.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured kind of hazy dark reddish amber in color; decent off white head and nice lacing on the cup. Aroma of spices malts and booze with hints of pumpkin. Taste is malty sweet combined with some spices and pumpkin, you also feel the alcohol but it is actually smooth and drinkable. Nice Enjoyable beer.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz. Bottle. Ok, but not that impressive due to the overwhelming boozy flavor. Excellent scent of banana, spice, clove, pumpkin, nutmeg, and alcohol. Bronze pour with a head quick to ring. Light/med body, silky, slight sticky finish. Big alcohol flavor over banan and pumpkin, nutmeg.

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