radagast83 (5071) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Draft at Rustico Alexandria. Poured a clear amber color with a pretty decently sized white head. Aroma was a nice mix of pumpkin and pumpkin-pie spices. Some earthy hops with a nice malt backing round it out. Flavor was a bit like a pumpkin pie, with fresh tasting pumpkin with nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon. Pretty tasty, and quite drinkable for the abv on this one.

DocLock (8054) - 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.

TheBeerGod (5341) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Bottle. Dark orange-amber pour with a medium, frothy tan head. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, pumpkin pie and roasted pumpkin. Hints of brown sugar as well. Taste is cinnamon and nutmeg up front with strong pumpkin pie notes, brown sugar, clove, other spices and burnt pie crust. Body is medium with a soft, creamy carbonation. Finishes with more strong spice up front (mainly cinnamon and clove), pumpkin pie, candied pumpkin and brown sugar.

tgncc (2899) - Bellmore, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2012
The aroma is pumpkin pie spices, brown sugar, light booze, pumpkin. The appearance is relatively clear deep amber, off-white head. The flavor is like the aroma, pie spices, caramel, pumpkin. Boozy. The finish is light booze, pine, spices. Medium/thick in body, creamy mouthfeel. The booze comes through too much, especially considering it’s only 8%. Still, pretty enjoyable overall.

jercraigs (8070) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2013
2013-01-13. Hazy dark orange with a nice beige head. 3+ Aroma is spicy, fruity, and lightly tangy. Flavour is similar, moderate spices up front, fruity pumpkin, very light alcohol, modest bitterness. Smooth average pls to medium bodied palate. 3++ Pretty decent, I’d personally like the malt to be a touch more robust to support the pumpkin and spice more, but it is nice as is. Bottle from Premier Gourmet, Buffalo
