Bottle... Poured a nice pumpkin orange hue with a thin head. Nice fleshy, earthy squash tones here. The spicing was overdone which was nice. Nice mouthfeel, decent malt sweetness to add depth to the pumpkin tones with also yeast esters towards the end.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours dark brown with a foamy beige/tan head. Aroma is more treacle than pie spice. Med body. Flavor is treacle, brown sugar, squash, and traces of pie spice. Maybe more than a trace. And raisin it seems. Or something dark like that. Quite different, and a bit earthy. Pretty tasty and stands apart from the usual suspects.

Deep mahogany hued copper body with a thin brown head. Burnt bready malt backbone. Strong molasses and some belgian candy sweetness. Light pumpkin character. Strong notes of clove and cinnamon with a lingering spice the reminiscent of cardamom and ginger. Some citrus notes. A bit thin and tinny.

Bomber poured into glass. Didn’t expect much from this pumpkin only because I know that Pike doesn’t produce a ton of great beer. Pumpkin spice aroma with a slight creamy flavor but it doesn’t really tickle my fancy all that much.

Bottle. Dark browna nd ruby around the edges. Short, bubbly tan head. Strong caramel and molasses with pumpkin pie, clove, and nutmeg in the nose. Almost a hint of Old Bay seasoning as well (or something similar). Taste is molasses up front with softer caramel, slightly burnt pumpkin pie, clove, nutmeg, light cinnamon and sweet malt. Body is medium with a dense, creamy carbonation. Ends with more molasses and caramel notes, softer clove, light cinnamon, pumpkin pie, burnt pie crust and more spices.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I told myself that tonight is the night that i blast this beer in to 10-rating legitimacy. This beers been widely available for over a month so taking this long to get ratings lives us up to true seattle hipster faux apathy fashion. Pours out dark brown and no head. Aroma is dominated by booze, cheap lager, and dark fruits. Flavor is brown sugar, some spice, dark fruits, but not all that much pumpkin. Honestly more of a belgian dubbel than a punpkin beer. Disappointing considering its widespread availabilty and price tag. I do like the label though.
