On tap. Pours with a hazed golden-orange hued body with a small white head. Aromas are bready, biscuity, nutmeg, toasted spices. Glorious. So bready and malty, graham cracker, light vanillin, clove and cinnamon. Flavors are super malty, bready, oak, ginger, graham cracker. Sooo much malt character. Some nutmeg, a touch nutty, cinnamon, medium oak, crackers, tannin, spice and vanilla. Medium bubbles, fuller body and a bit warming. Very tasty.

On tap at Pinocchioís. Iíve still not had the regular version, but this was tasty...and I normally hate these things. This has all the flavor and character of a frosted pumpkin spiced dessert...yet the beerness doesnít ruin it. Itís really think though and tough to finish a glass, but still, Iím glad I tried it.

Wine glass @ Standings bar nyc. Pour is orangish with no head at all... looks very still. Mouthfeel is lacking carbonation, but rich and supple. Delicate vanilla, ginger, and cinnamon spice... much more of a sipper than the original.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours clear golden orange with a thin white head. Creamy vanilla and pumpkin spice aroma. Not a lot of oak in the flavor at all, mostly vanilla, pumpkin spice, cream, and toast. Obviously on the sweeter side, but not overly so. Good, not great.

draft at Blue Monk, Buffalo. Dont know why i dont like pumking. Very flat light copper pour. Very nice aromas of pie crust, nutmeg, pumpkin, allspice/. The oak seems to hide meekly under all the pumpkin pie spice. I suppose some people will love this, just not me
