From 22oz bottle (cellared 2 years) to lager glass. Pour is a deep amber, thick tan head with a thicker texture. Nose is pumpkin, spices, alcohol. Taste is heavy bodied, bitter with touches of sweetness coming through. Finishes crisp, awesome pumpkin beer.

On draft at Dan's. The pour is a dark ruby,at be a little brown. The head looks like it's on nitro,band sits beautifully stop the beer. The aroma is full of nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice. The flavor is very similar. I love the mix of pumpkin in there. It coats the mouth beautifully and has a nice lingering finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This pours a medium brown color with a creamy, off-white head. The aroma is full of pumpkin and spice. The texture is much creamier then I would have expected. The mixture of pumpkin and spice is just right with a great finish. Finishes with a touch of lingering cinnamon. It still doesnít rival the taste of Pumking, but it is still very good in itís own way!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a brown color with generous beige head, compact and persistent. It has a mild nose of malt, caramel, spices, brown sugar and very light smoke. Good body strength; caramel flavor, rather sweet; it has a moderates spicy profile, unfortunately also too much liquorice, and maybe some star anise; medium to low bitterness.
Another beer that confuses pumpkin with spices (cassia). And why the big bottle? This is not a beer to drink in large quantities, it becomes quickly cloying.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: Spicy sweetness--nutmeg and ginger apparent--with hints of caramel to flesh it out.
Appearance: Clear amber with rich tan head.
Taste: Medium-heavy sweetness with hints of tart sourness at the edges.
Palate: Full body, sticky texture, average carbonation, long, slightly sour finish
Overall: Iím not too impressed or blown away. I donít taste any pumpkin, and the spicy sweetness is a bit much. Thereís also an odd sour finish that tastes almost like the beer has skunked. Iím a bit disappointed.

Pumpkin pie crust and filling aroma.

Sweet....the warmer it gets, the better....
Nice...does get a trifle boozy towards the finish.

Bottle from Wegmans - I had this one a couple days ago, and itís a solid, pumpkin pie leaning ale. Iím just so burned out on the style, though. Yeah, November!

Bottle lake house. Pours a clear amber brown with a medium to large sized beige head. Spices,a bit of caramel. Medium bodied, sweet and a bit of caramel. Soft spices, a bit grainy and papery. Decent enough.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer pours a deep brown mahogany color with a finger thick head with tan and white elements to it. The aroma is unquestionably malty, caramel, and sweet with a definite alcohol note. The flavor is surprisingly well balanced, with malt, pumpkin, and other elements perfectly matched with one another. The pumpkin lends a creamy smoothness to the beer that helps offset the warming alcohol. Spice is present but takes a back seat to malt and pumpkin. A very nice pumpkin ale.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Spicy aroma of cimmon, ginger and nutmeg. The taste is similar with some traces of pumpkin. The finish is sweet and spicy. Becomes overwelming after a while.
