One of the better pumpkin ales I’ve had. Strong pumpkin aroma is matched by the taste, along with yams and some spice. Nothing subtle here, but the taste doesn’t seem cloying or fake.

Medicinal spice aroma. Pour was a gusher -- huge mess. Reminiscent of FFF by the same brewer. Taste was spice, but not much malt backbone. Sadly disappointed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bomber pours with a deep amber body and supporting a blooming pillowy tan colored head of foam. The aroma puts out a good deal of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger like spices as well as a little bit of pumpkin notes in the background. The taste is punctuated by the prickly over carbonation yielding bold ginger bread cookie followed by a lesser degree of nutmeg and cinnamon and then a faint pumpkin sensation. This has solid winter like spices but some balance is what I’d prefer with less spices and more pumpkin.

Brownish pour, tan head. Loads of sweet pumpkin pie spice in the nose. Loads of allspice and nutmeg. Flavor is sweet, fruity and spice heavy. Good mouthfeel.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Light chestnut pour with a sizable eggshell head. Nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, and caramel are all there. Aroma slightly elevated above its flavor. A bit thin. Not bad.

Lots of cinnamon and nutmeg aroma and thick beige head. Smells like a pumpkin pie! Very strong nutmeg flavor at first with a bitter clove finish. Pretty good overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drank from glass out of 22oz bottle. Aroma- brilliant notes of pumpkin pie, spice and cinnamon. Very rich. Pumpkin pie in a glass. Appearance- very dark and cloudy with heavy head. Taste- great pumpkin flavor with notes spice. Palate- pumpkin aftertaste but has a booze finish. Hot ending. Overall- good pumpkin beer. Up there with wasatch as a favorite. Aroma is best ever.
