Bottle. Bought at Redstone Liquor Store (Stoneham, Ma). Pours dark copper with medium beige head. Aroma: pupkin, spices, ginger bread, malt. Taste is the same. Interesting. One of the good pumpkin beers I’ve had so far. Leaves the mouth dry.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500mL bottle, courtesy of Samuel Adams. Thanks! Wasn’t a big fan of this right out of the fridge, but the initial cloying sweetness turned into something a bit more interesting. Pours a rich orange color that fluctuates from golden to brown depending on the angle; a creamy light tan head that lingers. The aroma doesn’t get as much of a bump from the temperature adjustment as the flavor does, as this gives just a fruity burst of alcohol and some candied sweetness and spice. The body on this is still a bit overly viscous and sweet, even at higher temps, but there’s also a rich berry character, soft spicing, and a mellow profile overall that benefits from the tinge of warming alcohol in the background; a solid beer, but never quite comes full circle for me. Definitely give it time to warm up.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can’t fault it really, offers up the typical dark, sticky pumpkin style that lingers on the tastebuds in the familiar boozy style. It certainly doesn’t disappoint, but doesn’t surprise either.

Rich and creamy, more vanilla than spice, slightly boozy. Low IBU, but I detect some English hop flavor in the end. Does it taste like pumpkin? I’m not sure if anything died, including pumpkin pie. I’d like to taste this alongside Pumpkin. I think this is a little messier.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reddish-amber color, thin white head. Aroma is mostly caramel maltiness with slight pumpkin. Taste is also more malty, but with more pumpkin than in aroma and some nicely balanced spices. A bit of alcohol in the taste. Pretty good beer.

Searched so hard for this beer wanted to love it. So so really, not great not terrible in fairness sat for a year so pumpkin flavor may have waned.
