TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Bottle from SHIG. Thanks Shawn! Black coffee pour with small tan head. Nose is tart cherry skins, light roast, yoghurt, light spice and pumpkin but its pretty much faded at this point. Thinning palate, tart, light pumpkin spice but most likely a shadow of its former self. Burping produces a glimpse of what this once was. More like an old English style porter in its current state.

22oz bottle pours a watery, opaque black with some soft, beige head. Big nose, cloves, oranges, nutmeg, cinnamon, some vanilla, carrots. Flavor is sweet, spices, candied yams, marshmellow, cloves, ginger, chewy malt. Super smooth finish, very well balanced.

Thorpe429 (5011) - , Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2012
Bottle courtesy of GT2. Thanks! Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. The nose carries some strong pumpkin spice along with light oak character. A bit of tannin into the flavor along with bitter herbs and spice. Roast and chocolate in the background. Medium body with a dry herbal finish. Not a huge fan of this one; I prefer regular T.R.E.A.T.

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 9, 2012
large spotty cream head atop red-sienna. Light pumpkin spice, oat nose. Flavor is more cocoa, pumpkin mid, light bubblegum and sugar finish. Bit sweet and thin but gritty.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Thanks GT. Pumpkin pie, brown sugar, and graham cracker. Literally the beer version of a delicious pumpkin pie. Thick rich mouthfeel with great carbnation.

GT2 (8742) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 3, 2012
651mL thanks to savnac. Pours clear deep brune with small beige foam. Nose is rich pumpkin pie with some beautiful funky barrel notes. Some lacto, white wine, small Brett. Rich as hell aroma with complex floral and tropical character. Taste is rich curry, spiced pumpkin pie. Thicker. Great stuff. Obvious #1 for style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
