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!

3.7 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. Pours slightly muddy brown/auburn with very big and fluffy off white head. A bit of a gusher though not infected. Nose and taste of slightly roasted squash, nutmeg, cinnamon, maple and caramel malt. Lighter medium body.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL bottle, sent from coryking (thanks Cory), pours a cloudy dark orangey amber with a small beige head. Aroma of squash, light maple syrup and what seems like other spices I can’t pick up on exactly. Flavour brings out a surprisingly well-blended mix of squash and maple syrup - dry caramel malts as well, with some other spicy notes. Dry, lightly spicy and nicely balanced. A surprisingly nice beer.

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.
