So I’m not into pumpkin flavored things all too much and to make a brew like this must have been a very difficult feat. I’ve tried the equivalents from the likes of Dogfish Head, Southern Tier, Weyerbacher etc. and this beer not only takes the cake but trumps all opponents(Dogfish clearly second place). Amazing amber color with the smell of nutmeg, toffee, caramel, and a touch of pumpkin. Tastes of gourmet pumpkin pie. Right on the money. Makes me happy to be from New Jersey.

Draft. Pours amber red with a thin head. Lightly sweet aroma with ints of pumpkin and spices. The flavor is a touch on the bland side, but pleasant, with some sweetness and pumpkin spices. Not bad.

Pours a cloudy almost cider like appearance. The aroma is full of spices. Mild hints of pumpkin throughout. Not one of the sweeter pumpkin beers out there but quite tasty and goes down easy at 8%. Definitely worth a taste if you’re a big pumpkin fan like me!

7/10/2011 on cask @ Blind Tiger, NYC (2011-545)
Clear deep orange to amber or copper red beer, small to no head. Aroma: ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, sweet sugary, some caramel. MF: no carbon, full body, pretty thick texture. Taste: bit of citrus, sweet malts, spices (ginger, cinnamon), pumpkin (?), banana, oranges. Aftertaste: banana peel, little bitter. Not bad, but no wow effect.

Bottle. Different label than that in the picture. Mine says 8.1% ABV. Pours a hazy reddish amber color with a smallish beige head. Cinnamon, caramel, nutmeg, cloves, and pumpkin in the pleasant aroma. Medium-bodied and creamy here and there on the way down. Caramel, sweet pumpkin pie, and cinnamon dominate the flavor. Some vanilla creaminess in the middle. A little cereal wheatiness at the end. Plenty of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves from start to finish. Hints of warming alcohol are present throughout and only add to the depth of this brew.

Bottle from a trade with dmac. Pours cloudy dark copper color with tan head. Aromas of cinnamon and some nutmeg. Sweet caramel flavor with cinnamon and nutmeg. The pumpkin spice flavors are more subdued than most pumpkin beers. Medium body with moderate carbonating. Thanks Dave.
