Pours coppery with a thin beige head. Aroma is lots of pumpkin pie spices, cinnamon chewing gum. Flavor is lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, and sweet malt.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured a slight hazed brown with an off-white head that settled to a ring. Sweet aroma of brown sugar and light spice and pumpkin. The flavor found pumpkin and caramel. Light to medium body, sweet throughout, and a caramel aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle served in a snifter.
Pours clear, deep red-copper with a modest and weak tan head.
More spicy in the flavor and feel than in the nose, particular the cinnamon component. Perhaps due to a richer malt base, even with rather bold spicing this pumpkin is not over-spiced. Those not liking cinnamon much will disagree; this has enough cinnamon to, I think, add a slight burn to the feel.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is one epic pumpkin beer. It actually tastes like a piece of pumpkin pie. Crust and all. Buttery, spicy, and earthy pumpkin wrapped up in a bottle. One of the best pumpkin beers Iíve had.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with thick beige head, with a slightly orange hue that fades somewhat slowly and unevenly. Minimal lacing on the glass. Nose of cinnamon, raisin bread, nutmeg, and some caramel malt. Fairly potent pumpkin spice presence on the palate additional notes of vanilla. Smooth and sweet finish. Medium body with average carbonation. Pretty solid pumpkin beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours amber brown. Overwhelming pie spice aroma. Spice blend overpowers the pumpkin flavor a bit. Warmth on the way down.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber pour with a beige head. Aroma of pumpkin and spice hits you during the pour. Taste is nutmeg and pumpkin. Nutmeg and cinnamon top the pumpkin flavor. An ok beer. Donít even notice the 7.5 % Alc. Dry spicy aftertaste.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
If I were blindfolded and this beer was place under my nose, Iíd swear I was smelling PUMPKIN PIE! Marvelous! Pours a slightly hazy cinnamon amber with a mostly diminishing foamy tan head and spotty lacing. The taste, like the nose, is delightful! Pumpkin, all the appropriate spices, even the whipped creamed topping and a well browned crust are present. None of the flavor elements overpowers their neighbors. Very well balanced. Overall, this is an exceptionally well crafted beer and true winner!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle; Pour is fairly murky dark golden / amber with a modest, fine bubbled white head in this glass; it retains poorly, frankly - the nose is subtle, but pleasant here. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and graham cracker come through , with a touch of caramel present. The flavor profile is initial modest bitter from the hop profile, moving to a more robust malty bready cinnamon , spicey, light pumpkin notes and finishing with more graham cracker and modest spicing here. For a subtle brew, it has a nice balance, feel, and hides alcohol well for me.

Nice copper color, just a bit hazy, this as plenty of spices and tastes just like pumpkin pir. te ale underneath is a bit weak and carbonation just a tad high.
