3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Dmac. Pours out an ugly muddy/apple cider color with a small white head. Aroma is of burnt sugar, pumpkin spices, apple, and some cinnamon notes. Taste is lots of cinnamon spice, lots of clove, like what Iíd imagine drinking a fall candleís wax would taste like, of corse minus the texture.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
donít pour this into a belgian tulip...only enhances the rotten pumpkin patch smell...very akin to something regurgitated then re-swallowed. the taste isnít quite as bad. i love spicy, bitter, dry brews....this really needs a touch of sweetness and creaminess. very thin. low ABV. very expensive. one of the worst pumpkinesque brews ever. and pretty much the worst brew iíve ever had. and i love this brewery... :(

Draft at the tower. Pours hazy reddish brown with a small white head. The aroma is mostly spices with light pumpkin. The taste has light pumpkin puree, slight spice. Solid but crazy thin.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle thanks to dmac! Pours a dirty orange/brown color with a fast fading thin foamy tan head. Appearance is not pretty. Tons of spice in the aroma. Cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, followed by some pumpkin, and caramel malt. Taste is slightly watered down. Some roasted carmel malt, cinnamon, lots of clove, hints of pumpkin bread, lemon, and grass.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours a murky brown with a medium tan head. aroma is all ginger snap. flavor follows suit...its like i got one of those little paper bags with 3 ginger snaps in it for trick or treat from some seedy old woman who smells like death and ciggarettes. only mom isnt making me throw this one out. mouthfeel is a bit watery and the finish really thins out but lingers with that old ladyís ginger snaps.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle via 6pack from Spirits Brick. Poured a chunky dark tea brown with a smaller foamy light beige head. Aroma had some initial notes of vegtables, nutmeg, lots of vanilla, some cinnamon, pumpkin pie meat and all spice. Body is watery with average carbonation and an odd aftertaste where the initlal notes fade almost instantly but then some spices linger. Flavor isnít that good, getting some grain notes that qickly fade and become all all-spice, nutmeg, cinnamon. Blah rework this one PBC.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Happend to be at the brewery the day the bottled it. A very cinnamon smell. The cinnamon slightly overwhelms but I really donít mind. It stll tastes really good. However, I did get a woodchip in my brew, doubt that was by design but who knows. Didnít ruin it but gotta step up on the quality control

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the house of 1000. Nice place, good prices, good beer, yeah. Clear red brownosh. Yes smell is a little punkeny. Pumpkins spice, easy and a little bitter but never gets on your nerves. Better than most punky beers, especially the spiced ones.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep orange/copper with a white head. Aroma has plenty of spice, toasted caramel malt, and light pumpkin. Medium bodied. Flavor was pretty heavy on the pumpkin spice but not overwhelmingly so, I guess. Sweet malts, toast, and some pumpkin round it out. Solid pumpkin beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at South Philly Taproom. Pours a copper-orange with thin beige head and lacing. Nose of pumpkin and pumpkin spice. Taste is overwhelmingly cloves, with some cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin. Pretty good if you like cloves and sessionable, which is a rarity for pumpkin beers.
