A full-bodied, deep reddish amber beer made with pumpkin and butternut squash and spiced with nutmeg, clove and cinnamon. Celebrate the bounty of harvest with this rich, malty ale and invoke the season of plenty.

Pronounced cinnamon and pumpkin aroma with clove accents. Clear orange, medium yellow head. Lots of cinnamon on the front end. Greater pumpkin notes appear later with nutmeg. Medium body. Much more cinnamon than most pumpkin spice beers. Exceptional for the style.

Pours a very dark amber color with no head. Smell is nutmeg and clover. Not getting all the cinnamon that was advertised, but still a decent nose. Taste is exactly the same as the nose. Taste has a acidic, bitterness taste to it. Medium body in the mouthfeel. This is a very sessionable beer, but at 8% it will definitely be felt.

Poured a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Aroma is of pumpkin pie and apple pie...lots of cinnamon on the nose. Very sweet smelling. Appearance is reddish brown with minimal head despite a vigorous pour. The head leaves very quickly and looks like iced tea now. Taste is better than expected, based on the aromas. Pumpkin and squash flavors dominate, but the cinnamon overpowers up front. The finish is medium, with gourd notes coming through. Palate is thin to medium with little carbonation. Overall one of the better pumpkin beers i have had...just not my favorite style.

Dark amber almost brown pour and clear with a creamy head. Nose is a cross between pumpkin and apple pie, nutmeg and sweet candy. Taste is similar, seriously just like a pumpkin pie. Really nice for a pumpkin beer. Strange and good.

Hazy cinnamon hue body with a very light head that withers quickly. Aroma is heavy on the pumpkin spices of cinnamon, nutmeg, and some clove over a sweet, toasty, melanoidin-rich malt base. Body is medium-full, with a malty texture, some breadiness, good spices, some pumpkin flavor, and both a bitter and carbonic bite from start to finish, slightly harsh and reminiscent of orange pith. The bite "seems" to cloud some of the booziness, which is perceptible past the finish in a warm citric breathiness. A good pumpkin ale, but clearly stronger spice on the nose than the tongue. The spiky bitterness is also a bit off-putting and unexpected. Still, with as strong an aroma as it has, it is sure to please.

Aroma is pumpkin pie, spices... Color is tan orange... Flavor is heavily spiced, nutmeg and cinnamon, cinnamon mainly dominates flavor... Pretty good, I’ve had better, a little too much spice...

Amber color with minimal head and very little carbonation. Aroma is of nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavor is also full of Fall spices. Nutmeg and cinnamon again with some over ripe fruit and alcohol. Some nice ginger bread and pumpkin pie.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2011 On tap at Galexy Hut in Arlington.. Dark Copper but the bar is dark too.. Slightly cloudy and no head or lacing . sweet but to be expected and full of spices with just a little pumpkin, but much better that the dash of spices usually put in. Some lighter fruits like pears in the first taste and dates later with a clean finish for something with this much suger. 10/2011 visited this mecca again

12 oz goblet at the Schlafly Bottleworks in St Louis, Missouri. Pour is brown amber copper, slight haze, more or less no head. Aroma is spiced nutmeg, cinnamon, a touch of the pumpkin. Taste is pretty heavily spiced, nutmeg mostly, followed behind by pumpkin and a touch toasty malt. Certainly a pumpkin beer, perhaps more heavy handed than I prefer. It is very fresh and clean tasting. Palate is medium to heavy bodied, spritzy carbonation, spiced lingering aftertaste. Overall, really nice version of a style I am not usually crazy about.
