COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A perennial favorite at our Brewery Halloween party, this reddish amber ale is perfect for fall. Real pumpkin adds a full body and sweetness, while deep roasted malts lend a toasty finish to this subtly spiced brew.

DarkSong (334) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - NOV 28, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours reddish amber with a small light tan head. It has the aroma of caramel, pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon and bread. It has a nice pumpkin flavor and also tastes like nutmeg,cinnamon, caramel, a little bread and has a nice toffee aftertaste. It doesnít have that pumpkin pie spice taste that a lot of pumpkin beers have, it has more of a pumpkin bread taste. I enjoyed this beer I hope we get to drink it again next fall.

Aroma is caramel, orange, and ginger. Appearance is reddish/brown with good carbonation. Taste is low hops with medium malt, caramel, pumpkin, ginger, orange. All very subtle and not overpowering in abundance. Palate is sweet crystal malt aftertaste. Another excellent brew from the master brewers at sam adams.A++

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear orange pour with a fizzy white head. Sweet and spicy pumpkin and cinnamon note at the start. Flavor is a nice and subtle pumpkin pie and spice combination with a very nice malty and spicy sweetness at the finish. Smooth sweet. Smoother than the Double Pumpkin.

Great beer. One of the few Pumpkin beers I have had that actually tastes better chilled. Reminds me of a good pumpkin bread, but not to heavy. Can pair well with lots of food because it doesnít linger.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with little to no head. Nice, light pumpkin aroma with some different spices. Sweet, pumpkin taste. Light malt as well. Pretty decent, but itís so sweet you canít have more then one or two.
