3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a reddish orange with a small tight head. The aroma is spicy with some pumpkin pie and fruit, fairly nice all around. The flavor is more pumpkin pie spice with a fair bit of booze but a rich maltiness that never really seems terribly sweet. It’s pretty tasty beer, but I think it would be a lot better at a lower gravity.

Bottle. Pours deep amber/Orange with off-white head. Aroma has everything a pumpkin pie has...pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon and even doughy crust. Flavor is much the same but add some malty sweetness and it is perfected!! You can even taste the crust in this beauty! Mouthfeel is medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Overall, I love everything about this brew, the maltiness, the flavors, the balance....EXCELLENT brew!!!

WOW! I was expecting the usual mild flavored boring pumpkin beer when I popped this open, but was I surprised! Aroma was very weak and I figured I was right. Pour was a nice light brown with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was stunning. Heavy pumpkin pie spices fill the mouth with cinnamon and nutmeg taking center stage. These spices have a nice sharp bite that plays well with the malty sweetness. Deliciously sweet and pumpkinny finish. Next year, once Pumking is sold out I will definitely seek this out!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, no date from firmbuttstone. Clear brown amber with some very fine particulate matter, and a small beige head, low retention. Aroma has a fair amount of banana nut bread and fruitcake, light raisin behind. Flavor is fruit cakey with some boozy notes added, some caramel and spice. Medium body with fairly low carbonation. Dry finish, some alcohol and toast noted, bitterness peaked at a 2-3. I enjoyed Tyranena’s better, just before this one.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle. Shared with others. Pours a thin, short duration off white head, over a hazy amber (SRM 10) body.....nose is heavy spices, with cinnamon, nutmeg dominating......taste is heavy cinnamon, nutmeg,allspice, pumpkin light caramel/toffee sweetness throughout with minimal hop....mouth feel medium, thick, alcohol hidden, carbonation medium. This is a very heavily spiced pumpkin ale, with the spice dominating all else. I do not care for this much spice ina beer. BJCP 6/3/10/4/5

On tap at Cave's. Brown orange pour with a very small white head. Aroma is pumpkin spice. Really nice out first, but then just too much. Taste is the same. Great at first and now just too damn much.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer pours autumn amber with a nice tan head on top. The aroma is light earthy pumpkin and spices as expected, pleasant. The flavor is similar on a light to medium body. The cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and the usual autumn spices with the light pumpkin flavor make up for it.
