Bottle courtesy of AirForceHops, my favorite trading parter. Roasted pumkin and chocolate malt, nutmeg, and light ginger aroma. Deep mahogany with a large tan head. Slightly sweet roasted pumpkin, light ashy coffee, cola, and spice flavor. Medium creamy body, moderate carbonation. Alcohol very well hidden. I really like these dark roasty versions of pumpkin beers.

Great Pumpkin beer which is spiced subtly and controlled. Black pour with minimal head. Aroma is light nutmeg, cocoa, light fruitiness. Creamy and tasty with good sweetness and nice spice. Hidden alcohol completely.

On draft at brewery, this one was the diamond in the rough, big pumpkin flavors lightly spiced with a strong beer backbone. Great brew

On tap at the brewery, it had great flavor. not overly spiced letting the pumpkin shine thru both in flavor and aroma. Needed a touch more fullness in the mouth for me

Draft @ brewpub on 16 October 2012. Color is a deep brown with ruby highlights. Very thin head without much retention. Nose is roasted malt with pumpkin hiding under that and some booze. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Unfortunately the roasted malt and pumpkin flavors are hurt a lot by the large amount of booze I taste. It seems that this would work much better with a lower ABV. I’d love to see the recipe altered just a bit.
