4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle pours with a crystal clear amber body that supports a nice looking tan head. The aroma offers up cinnamon graham cracker, pumpkin and prune like dark fruity esters. Nice. The taste is rich and deep with roasted cinnamon pie crust, ginger, roasted pumpkin meat and a pile of brown sugary sweetness. This is bold and rich and sweet. Pretty nice pumpkin sipper.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Moderate bar-poured head, but it dies very quickly to near nothingness. The beer is ruby brown, but light does pass easily. Appears clear. No lace.
Strong cinnamon with a lighter pumpkin smell.
Starts off as a homebrewed brown ale but there is smokiness that shows up quickly and lasts through the aftertaste. Thick body, almost oily; high carbonation. I don’t sense "pumpkin" per se, but this may be because the beer doesn’t match the typical pumpkin pie profile. I applaud this. Overall, I like the complexity.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Spicy smell with cinnamon, feels christmasy. Sweet and spicy taste. Allot of spices in this which I recon bothers allot of drinkers, I think it slightly over the top, but still very drinkable.

(A bomber from Ken) Pumpkin and all the typical (and appropriate) spices greet the nose. A clear maghogny pour with thin tan head and minimal to no lacing. The taste is overall sweet yet spicy. Pumpkin, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, ginger with some graininess in the finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Slick mouthfeel. Overall, a nicely brewed pumpkin ale.

A- Pumpkin, alcohol, spices.
A- Mahogany color, clear liquid, white head.
T- Pumpkin, alcohol, cinnamon, spices.
P- Medium body, average texture, high carbonation, spiced finish.
O- A strong pumpkin beer. The 8.5% abv is a welcome plus, but it’s got a little too much spice that outweighs the pumpkin tones.
