2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark orange pour, no head. Aromas of pumpkin spice and cocoa. No real flavor nailed down on the palate. Light body, slightly pumpkin taste that turns into tart dry cocoa nibs, but you have to let the beer warm up to even get that note.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A decent pumpkin, not the best, not the worst. Pours a nice clear red. Smells of pumpkin and nutmeg. Taste is subtle, a little bit of pumpkin upfront, with a balanced but bit boring finish. Had on tap at Tiburon Taps Beer Festival.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   This one also reminds me a bit of old Chicken in a Biscuit like crackers.   Spices turned a bit south, not much spiciness.   More of a stale Amber Ale.   Fairly muted, quick finish.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finishes very... light.   Was hoping this held up over time, but nope.   Didn’t go bad, just faded.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This pours a reddish orange color with only a slight head and some floaties mixed in the beer. The aroma is mild with pumpkin, allspice, cinnamon, and other spices. The texture is bold and smooth with good pumpkin flavor that it’s too thin or watery like other pumpkin beers. A delicious, sold seasonal beer just too bad I found this past the prime pumpkin beer drinking season.

Funny how all of the extra shit breweries seem to make good oddball beers. This is honestly the best thing they make and its a crap style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Firestone restaurant pint glass
From: BevMo in Mission Valley (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $14.99 for a BevMo variety 8-pack (w/ BevMo card)
Purchased: Dec. 31, 2013
Consumed: Jan. 3, 2014
Poured an amber orange color with three fingers of khaki white head that shrunk pretty quickly. A decent amount of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Very good layered foamy lacing along the sides of the glass on the way down. Great and thick retention all the way down.
Smelled pumpkin seeds, peppery spices, cocoa, nutmeg, cinnamon, chocolate and faint peppermint.
Tasted a bit better than the smell. First thing I noticed was cocoa, chocolate and fudge chips. Also pumpkin, nutmeg, caramel, toffee pumpkin rind and faint cinnamon. Maybe even some chili peppers in there late?
Medium body. Oily texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Long, spicy finish.
The most different kind of pumpkin beer I’ve ever had. A couple of my ratings could have gone either way, but I’d try it again.
