On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg, clove, allspice. Flavor of light roasted malt, sweet pumpkin pie, and pumpkiny spices such as allspice, nutmeg. Plenty of spice character but also plenty of pumpkin.

Thanks kiefdog for the share. Pours dark brown with a khaki head. Nose is earthy with notes of spice and pumpkin. Flavor is earthy and somewhat nutty with some sweet and herbal/ vegetal notes. Finish is hops with some roasted nuts and a hint of sweet in the background. Medium bodied, unique and nice.

Muddy brown beer with a thin head. Strong cinnamon on the nose. Some light roast, nutmeg perhaps. A touch spicy in a Belgian sort of way too. The flavors are roasted up front with some earthy hop bitterness followed by lots of spice and light sweetness. Spices and hops linger on the palate. Interesting effort.
