MadRobin (2830) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - NOV 8, 2014
On tap at Rock Bottom in Bethesda, MD, where it was listed as 7.8% ABV and 15 IBUs. Clear, dark reddish-amber with a thin khaki head and fine lacing that coats the glass but does not linger. Aroma of toffee, nutmeg, pumpkin, allspice, cinnamon, cloves and candied yams. Taste of cloves, allspice, nutmeg, chocolate, toffee, brown sugar, pumpkin, and alcohol. Medium/full body and medium carbonation. Remarkably complex for a Rock Bottom brew. Moreover, a pretty decent ale underlies all those spices. It's intense enough that you might not want to drink more than one, but certainly worth trying. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not a bad pumpkin. Quite drinkable w/ a really good deep orange pour w/ a white head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is full of fall spices. Solid.

Suttree (6105) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Sample at the Portland location, but since it was already on here I didn’t add it to the Portland location. I hope this was the correct procedure. These Rock Bottom listings can be confusing. Smells like a Pumpkin ale. Slightly overly spicy, with your basic nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon. Kind of heavy. Finishes with a subtle hop note.

Decent 4oz sample at Rock Bottom King of Prussia. Orangy amber color with some off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin pie spices, light caramel malt and bread. Taste added some pumpkin and nutty notes. Light body, moderate carbonation, dry, creamy with light spicy sweet finish. A little weaker then my typical pumpkin beer but solid.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6842) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Under the name "Pumpkin 4 the Man" at the Homestead PA location. Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a dark honey-amber color with a medium sized foamy beige head that left decent lacing. The aroma was dryish and spicy with notes of cinnamon sugar and nutmeg. The flavor was malty with notes of cinnamon sugar, nutmeg, bread and a touch of pine. Medium length malty cinnamon sugar and nutmeg finish. Medium body. Pleasant.

UncleKorm (1228) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 14, 2012
On tap in Colorado Springs 14 Sep 12. A light Copper to Orange in hue with a small yet resilient white head of fair lacing. Pumpkin pie aromas spices of cinnamon & nutmeg. Flavor was well balanced & the spices were back notes to a light pumpkin taste. A little thin in the mouth. This is an enjoyable seasonal beer for those who do not want a heavy handed spicy beer.
