Cloudy brown beer, tidy pale tan head. Palate is light, dry and crispy. Vegetal squash notes to start. Minerals. Mild cinnamon and other spices. Tiny bit of orange in the crisp finish. Sweet creamy vegetal aftertaste. Interesting!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(750ml bottle) Pours a burnt orange body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of allspice, squash, nutmeg, cinnamon, caramel, maple syrup, and toffee. Flavor of caramel, nutmeg, allspice, maple syrup, and squash . Good beer, but too much spices for me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours very, very dark amber/brown with a creamy/bubbly beige head. The primary aroma is pumpkin pie spice. Squash seems to be buried in all that. Med body. The cinnamon is very strong. Don’t know if the squash roasting did much for flavor, but maybe. Might be the best seasonal so far.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy copper color with a soapy off-white head. Intense spice aroma. Lots and lots of all spice and nutmeg to this one. Plenty of maple syrup with a walnut sort of aroma, too. The flavor is just as heavy on the spices and maple. There’s a really good squash flavor to this too. The spices really add a nice substance to the beer.

Bottle @ B.R.A.D. Fest, courtesy of jcnielsen. Pours a hazy orangish brown appearance with a light brown head. Spicy cinnamon, nutmeg, light vanilla, a touch veggie, toasty malty aroma. Quite spicy, zesty nutmeg, cinnamon, a bit chewy malty, light toffee flavor. Pretty tasty and would be nice for a pumpkin/autumn tasting.

750ml bottle: pours a mostly clear copper amber with a clumpy-lacing off-white head. Has a sweet lightly toasted dark caramel and squash nose with some clove spice. Starts with airy carbonation and sweet caramel and toffee notes with a touch of maple and unique squash character. Finishes with some mild allspice and anise. A very unique and well-balanced brew.
