4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The appearance is a cloudy dark auburn color with a large off-white head, and the aroma is very nice with its hints of cinnamon, maple syrup, and caramel malts. The taste has a mild sweetness, slightly bitter, a touch of umami, and a touch of spice; furthermore, the palate combines a slick texture, medium body, average carbonation, and a long finish.

Draft at Jerry’s. Clear red-amber with good, creamy, beige head / Sweet, clean nose of maple, toast, squash, and citrus / Medium body, creamy and lush, sweet but with good hop balance, and some bitterness in the finish / Flavors of maple syrup, sweet squash, grapefruit, toast, cinnamon, and nutmeg / Very creative, and quite good. Squash surprisingly discernable.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours murky amber brown with a huge beige head, almost a slow gush with huge carbonation! The aroma brings light sweetness and roasted earthy pumpkin and brown sugar, so nice in the nose. The flavor starts off with some subtle tang, then the roasted pumpkin and apple cider sweetness hit the palate so pleasantly. Then some cola syrup flavor maybe from the maple help round things out.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle shared by Cory, who hand-labeled this one he was calling "Bottle #1"- thanks a ton, Cory! Pours a rich brown-amber color with a small off-white head. Great aroma of clove, cinnamon, toasted malts, nuts, and what seems like nutmeg and brown sugar, even though they didn’t add any. The flavor is so well balanced, with the American brown ale maltiness, nuttiness, and toastiness, and the cinnamon and clove spice. The squash is present in both aroma and flavor but so subtle. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, balanced, beautiful mouthfeel. The ratings for the tap version are solid but I’m wondering if this one works better in the bottle because I thought it was awesome (and I’m not just kissing ass because Cory was there).

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour is a clear brown with a small white head. Aroma is an intense cinnamon and clove. This smells just like fresh baked apple pie. Flavor is some more cinnamon and spice but I do detect a nice squash flavor in there as well. This was a very tasty beer but also one of those beers that you love but I don’t know If i could drink too much of this in one sitting. It is a cinnamon and spice bomb.
