3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Pale orange and copper colored in appearance with a cap of white foam. Aroma is a blend of nutmeg, pumpkin pie puree and ginger along with a noticeable caramel malt presence. The taste leads off with a slightly tart and vegetal baked pumpkin flavor backed by lots of cinnamon, clove and allspice. Also some caramel and lightly toasted malt in the background. Alcohol notes are fairly well hidden. Mouthfeel is creamy with moderate carbonation and a dry, spiced finish. Not bad on its own but would probably taste better with a nice meal as some of the flavors are a little overpowering.

Bottle. Deep amber. Nose is caramel, grain, marshmallow, spice. Flavor is a bit raw and hot upfront - fruity esters in the back. Very strong alcohol notes in this bottle, but still pumpkin notes predominate.

9% ?!?! Duuuuuu never new that before I cracked this big bottle open. FUCK YOU LIVER I’M DRINKING!! Smell is good, and it gooder then most of the style. Taste is the goodest. Each sip keeps getting goodier then the last. Noticeable light fall spice, maybe a lemony hops, good bitter finish. Where is the 9%? Tell me!!!! Smooth and full feeling. Cream cheese?? Maybe cream cheese, yes cream cheese. I like this, it’s very pie like but in beer form.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.
