Thanks to hopdog for sharing this one... Appears a transparent copper toned amber with a small white head that quickly fizzles out into a mild cap. Small spots are left around the glass. Smell is of spicy pumpkin pie with doughy bread, and a touch of caramel. Taste mimcs the aromas with hints of cinnamon, cloves, all-spice, dried juniper berries, and Chinese 5-spice. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, spiced with pumpkin bread and roasted walnuts lingering into a thin finish.

God. I couldn’t drink it. Too heavy on the spice aroma but pretty to look at. Nice pumpkin color.

Draft sample at Schlafly Bottleworks. Aieeee! Pumpkin beer time again! This one is darker than the usual pumpkin color. Just a small edge of foam. Pie spices pretty clear in the nose and in the taste. Some sweetness here that does indeed suggest roast pumpkin in evidence.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Amber color, very little head. Quite spicy and a noticable pumpkin taste which is good. Much better than what i was expecting

Stine (1653) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Poured from a 12 oz. Transparent orange, rusty. Basic pumpkin aroma, not especially pleasant or pungent, with an allspice and brown sugar glaze. Tepid, reserved flavor of papery seeds, some crystal, light candy tones and slick vegetal sugars; the butternut presence is lucid and interesting. Dry in the mouth, with a light to medium texture. Simple and reasonable. Thanks for sharing, Ken!

Pours a nice clear amber with a very quickly fading head. Smell is fairly big for a pumpkin. Nice aromatic pumpkin pie like spiced nose. Taste is very nicely spicy and not just spiced, but truly almost spicy at times. Easily the best pumpkin beer I’ve yet had. Very nice, full, rich body, and robust pumpkin flavor. Was expecting another mediocre pumpkin beer, and I got a lot more. This was absolutely delicious and I’ll be looking for this in Autumns to come.

12oz bottle, courtesy of tjthresh. Thanks, Tom! Pours a bright, orange-amber color; significant white head with good retention and creamy fine-bubbled lacing that lasts forever; a great pour. Very pleasant spice profile in the aroma: an emphasis on nutmeg and cinnamon, but withouth any of the typical harsh, dry spiciness that tends to inhabit pumpkin ales; this is instead warm and fiery and ultimately soft. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: warm spiciness and some creamy sugar notes; solid levels of carbonation; sort of a one-dimensional sugar-based maltiness, but the spice profile is (like the aroma) expectional and pleasant; definitely one of the better pumpkin beers I’ve had. Medium, candy sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in the finish.

(Bottle) Pours a clear copper body with a small off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, and sweet caramel. Flavor of caramel, pumpkin, and allspice.
