Pour is a murky brown with a large white head. Aroma is wonderful. Lots of cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin. Flavor is less so. Some spices show up, no real pumpkin and finishes kinda watery. This is one of those beers that smell so good but what happened to the flavor? Finish is cloying malts and there is no spice felt after the swallow.

Very average pumpkin beer. Some may like the muted flavor, but it’s not for me. Aroma was alright. Slight pumpkin pie spices that you really have to dig your nose in to find. Pour was a nice dark amber with a one finger off white head. Taste was sweet, light and spicy. Light cinnamon and brown sugar flavors were the main flavors which stuck through to the finish. Hints of caramel and vanilla were present but distant. Very thin mouth feel and a quick spicy finish. Average at best.

Thanks to Rogueone for sharing a bottle. The beer is a dark copper-amber color with a medium thick off-white head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of pumpkin spices and malt. Medium body with flavors of nutmeg, malt and pumpkin. The finish is sweet with a spiced aftertaste. Decent overall.

Great pumpkin aroma and deep amber color. Foamy head. A bit syrupy and heavy alcohol taste.

At home out of 22oz bottle poured into glass. Aroma- slight bourbon aroma with a little spice. Appearance- dark red/amber color. Medium head. Dissapated quickly. Taste-bourbon flavor. Not very drinkable. Palate musky aftertaste. More like whisky. Not a fan

Bright orange bottle from Julios. I’ve got to admit - I was totally attracted to the bottle. This one pours out with a big frothy head. Very nice looking, with a reddish brown hue. Strong metallic aroma at first- but goes away toward the end of the bottle. Flavor is mildly sweet with good spicy balance. Lots of roastiness. Clean finish.

Faint pumpkin pie smell. Large off white head. Faint pie spices on taste with finish of strong pumpkin. Delicious pumpkin beer.

Bottle. Pours a very dark amber with very little head. Huge amount of pumpkin and spices in the nose. Too spicy for me - not a fan of this style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep, dark, amber with a fluffy eggshell head. Aroma of pumpkin and spice and sweet malt. Maybe some light grassy hops. Rich pumpkin pie taste, but not too much. On the heavier side of medium bodied and well carbonated. Nice.
