12oz bottle into a snifter. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange with a thin cap for a head that fades into a ring around the side of the glass. Not really any lacing to speak of. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and graham cracker. A very pleasant fall spiciness and really captures the pumpkin pie aroma perfectly. Not overtly spicy whatsoever. Flavor is very near perfection. Some squashy-ness up front quickly followed by a healthy wallup of cinnamon and nutmeg. A quick shot of vanilla along with some whipped cream but the spices hold strong. Never do they become overwhelming but rather quite nicely balance with everything else. Bitterness is extremely light and nearly imperceptible. This beer is just a touch sweet and not a sugar bomb like so many pumpkin beers. A nice, dry finish with just a hint of warmth from the alcohol. Overall, one of the best pumpkin beers out there. Very well balanced and not sweet at all. I could honestly drink a couple of these in a sitting. One to pick up every year.

Best pumpkin beer I’ve ever had around these parts. Classic pumpkin pie spices and warm, round finish. YUM

One of the better pumpkin ales I’ve tried. Spices. Smooth. I don’t want a lot of it, but good.

Appearance is deep brown with minimal off white foam cap. Aroma is an intense pumpkin pie spicing of allspice, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Vanilla also stands out. Taste is a rich caramel malt with vanilla, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger. Mouthfeel is moderate with a slight creaminess and low carbonation. Finishes with a lingering spice flavor of nutmeg and cinnamon.

On tap at ribco, pours a clear dark reddish brown with a very thin off white head, aroma had a nice amount of cinnamon mixed in with pumpkin spice and vanilla, flavor had a good amount of spice but its not overdone, really nice stuff.

Pours orange with a creamy off-white head. Pumpkin pie aroma. The flavor is very sweet with pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and allspice. The mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. Light to medium body with a high level of carbonation. Very tasty, one of the better pumpkin beers I have had this year.

Enjoyed at Northdown Tap in Chicago, IL while shooting darts with some friends. I didn’t realize that Schlafly started distributing in Chicago, and now I am thrilled. Never had the chance to get this one during the fall in St Louis, really happy to have had this and it lives up to the hype. Fantastic pumpkin ale, rich in nutmeg and cinnamon with a great sweetness and finish. I will have this again.

Without a doubt the best pumkin ale I have ever had. The spice scents hit you even while you pour and gives you a punch when you drink.

I was starting to give up on pumpkin beers. Autumn would hit, I'd say I can't wait for them to start coming out, then they'd keep disappointing me. This one is more spice than pumpkin. Almost too much like a pie, which is awesome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
