ARH (1117) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2015
22oz bottle poured into a snifter. The aroma is sweet; a blend of butterscotch and nutmeg with light vegetal undertones that turn to caramel apple candy as it warms up. The brilliant orange, oily beer has a white, sudsy head that exhibits mild retention and leaves light lace. The taste is a medium high sweet-forward beer with medium bitter backing notes. The thick, waxy texture has a foamy carbonation. The full body is initially warm with alcohol and sweet caramel. It finishes with nutmeg and another, more bitter and waxy spice quality. There’s butterscotch in the finish too, but this fades turning towards applesauce and root vegetables. The aftertaste has a mild potency and lingering spice character with caramel, nuts, and an alcohol dryness.

bulldogops (2250) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 1, 2015
Rating #1258 27.09.2014. Bottle from CBI, 9% Clear copper-amber pour, that produces a bubbly foam. Aroma is potent, lots of nutmeg, cinnamon, hint of allspice. Taste is malty, lots of sweet and grainy notes, moderate alcohol warmth. Not a big pumpkin guy, but the balance here at 9% is fantastic.

Shipyard Smashed Pumpkin has a thick, frothy, orange-tinted cream-colored head, a hazy, bubbly, orange appearance, and even some decent lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sharp, spicy, pumpkin pulp aroma, reminiscent of Pumpkin Head, with the spiced candle aspect. Taste is of those elements, with a bit of an odd pepper note (white pepper?). Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Smashed Pumpkin finishes between wet and dry. Not too boozy in the flavor, but one will feel it (my sample is a 12-oz. bottle). RJT

Bottle. Cloudy, light orange with a medium head. Aroma is a pumpkin spice with strong hints of honey. Taste is sweet up front, almost a honey taste in the middle and a well balanced finish. Just a tad cloying.
