2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear amber with no head. Nose is pumpkin and allspice. Very strong creamy pumpkin flavor, tons of vanilla... almost like drinking pumpkin flavored creme brulee. Very strong alcohol note. Quite sweet. Strong spicy/bitter finish. Not doing it for me.

Pretty remarkable spices and overall flavor. Tastes like pumpkin pie - all the way to the graham cracker crust. Vanilla notes are nice, plenty of nutmeg. Probably the best pumpkin beer I’ve had.

Ok I am all over the board on this. Plus it is quite possible that I have been wrong all along with my dislike of the punkin beer. This is loaded with punkin taste. Loaded. Its a sweetness that has very little of the spice that Dogfish is overwhelmed with. This is a total oppisite in the same style. Very interesting and I must admit, much more drinkable.

bottle. Unbelievable taste and aroma. Truly the PUMPKIN KING. Fantastic. Exactly what it is meant to be. If you don’t want a pumpkin beer don’t come looking for one.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear orange pour - the color of a pumpkin. Thin white head. Lots of bubbles. Smells like pie. Lots of pumpkin and spice. Cinnamon and nutmeg and cream. Nothing on the nose to indicate that this is even beer. Bitter pie flavor with spice and and a buttery finish. Too desert like and not really my style.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep orange/amber color with a smooth beige head. Big spicy pumpkin nose. This brew is potent, the ABV, the pumpkin flavors, and the spices, stronger then any other pumpkin beer I remember. I’m amazed how they pulled the flavors off, but it was a bit to overpowering for me.

1.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
My first (and hopefully only) drain pour of a Southern Tier beer. This was truly discusting in everway. I went in expecting a typically great Southern Tier beer because most of them are, but after the first sip I soon discovered that this isn’t even close to being good. It dosen’t even taste like beer. Its like pumpkin juice with alcohol and carbonation. Stay far away from this.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2008 Bottle from lilbeerdoctor, thanks! Fresh pumpkin flesh aroma released from the bottle upon opening. Complex layers of vanilla, nutmeg, and even crust. Ambered golden color and a thin white head that didnít really last or lace. Flavor is segmented and astringent which sticks to the roof of my mouth and lingers with a burn until the next sip. I kept wanting to drainpour this

Bomber purchased at West Lakeview Liquors in Chicago. Pours amber with white frothy head. Aroma of spices and pumpkin, smells just like a pumpkin pie. Taste is of liquid pumpkin pie, no other way to describe it than that. Nice beer for the season, and if you’re looking for a true pumpkin ale, this is it!
