Very rich, malty, sweet. It’s basically a pumpkin doublebock IMO. Moderate pumpkin flavor with the usual spices, plus some caramel, a little butterscotch, and plenty of alcohol. Warming, which makes me wish it wasn’t 86 degree today in early October in Connecticut (damn global warming!). Anyway, it’s pretty good, one of the better pumpkin beers I’ve had actually. Not gimmicky, just a nice strong beer with some pumpkin.

Syrupy pumpkin. Not strong enough pumpkin. Not drunk enough pumpkin. Not pumpkin enough pumpkin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours deep copper with a subtle off-white gently head. Head fades to a minor ring with light lacing. Sweet pumpkin notes lead the nose with hints of nutmeg. Drinks with a moderate bitterness that is almost balanced with the spiced pumpkin. Medium-body with high carbonation. Not overly sweet like other pumpkin ales but not on the level of Pumking or Punkin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours amber orange with a beige head. Sweet caramel malts, banana yeasty notes, light toasted bread, and pumpkin pie spice. Pretty good.

DSG (5021) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Tom L. Hazy amber with a beige head. Nice aroma of pumpkin, some clove, a bit cinnamon. Sweetish flavor with malt, caramel, pumpkin, some spices and a drier finish with some bitterness. Medium-bodied.

Great beer. Had it at a blind tasting and I actually did not feel the pumpkin. Wonderful.

750 ml about 2 months old. Pours red. A nice creamy head. Smell isn't overpowering, but nice spice notes - cinnamon, gingerbread, and what seems to be pretty fresh pumpkin (not sure if it's canned). Taste starts with sweetness from the pumpkin, and then the spices surface and all linger together. Clean finish, minimal to no bitterness. One of the better balanced pumpkin beers I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured a rich dark amber with a small off white head. Aroma strong of pumpkins and clove. Taste is sweet and slightly up front with a nice bitter hop at the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
