3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. Batch #2. A clear ruby pour with a thick & creamy khaki head. The aroma features some crisp caramel maltiness, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, a rich breadiness, and some hints of pumpkin. A smoky woodsiness and a touch of molasses become apparent with a little warmth. Relatively medium-bodied on the way down. Caramel, molasses, and a big breadiness dominate upfront taste-wise. A little vanilla extract in the middle. Raisins and squash at the end. Some smoky woodsiness here and there. Lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and ginger from start to finish. Kinda boozy. A solid pumpkin beer.

Not my favorite of the pumpkin beers, but not bad. Has a scotch ale feel to it with some spicy cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg notes. Have an underlining smoky flavor that is a bit too strong for my liking.

Very Excited to try this and it did not disappoint. Doesn’t look or smell like anything special, but has a very distinct flavor that I have yet to find in other seasonal pumpkin brews.

Very spicy. Full of cinnamon, molasses and earth. A nice clear reddish-brown color. Lots of lace. A strong pumpkin presence dominates though.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark copper in color, nice off white head and lots of lacing on the glass. Strong pumpkin aroma, some spices, malts and some alcohol, nice. Taste is a bit boozy, however is well balanced with malts, spices and pumpkin; so far I think is one of the best pumpkin ales I have tried this season. Very good brew. Enjoyable.

Bottle - Copper in colour. Roasted malt, dried fruit and some slightly smoky notes in the aroma. Fruity, nutty and roasted taste with caramel, ash and sultanas featuring in the roasted and sweet finish. I have not tasted enough pumpkins to be able to discern and detect it here.

3.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours heavy cloudy rust color with minimal foam. Not an appealing appearance. Caramel and spice in the aroma. Sweet caramel, malt, nutmeg and vanilla are prominent in the taste. Some brown sugar in the finish. The spices are not overdone. Heavy on the tounge with good carbonation.
This is a great pumpkin ale. Easily one of my favorites.

Copper red pour with off white head. Aroma is light pumpkin and spice, and a little musty. Taste is sweet, pumpkin and spice. A little to sweet, but good.
