Pumpkin orange with a thin white head thatís gone. Aroma of pumpkin, spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, this thing smells like pumpkin pie. Taste of pumpkin, spices, whip cream, cinnamon, nutmeg and mild alcohol. Finishes up pretty spicy. Pretty good for a pumpkin beer.

Very golden color with minimal head. Smells like a sliver of pumpkin pie with fresh nutmeg grated on top. Very sweet with a whipped cream finish taste. Best pumpkin beer I have had yet!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Pours a golden amber with a very little head. I thought this would look sexier, but the smell makes up for it a bit. I get a bit of hops on the first whiff, but then the pumpkin and spice hit--pretty much exactly like pumpkin pie, with crust and all. I get a lot of nutmeg with a little mandarin orange in the background. no clue where that came from. Anyways, the taste is pretty much the same pumpkin pie taste that finishes with a stale hops taste. A sweet, malty backbone lingers after itís all swallowed, along with some cinnamon. Itís silky, medium-bodied with mild carbonation. This was about what I expected, but the stale hops on the end really turned me off. Had they tasted fresher, or if this had just bypassed the hops and finished smoothly into the sweet maltyness, this would have been much better. Still impressed, however.

Bottle at DuffmanSWs beer tasting. Pours a clear golden with a half inch white head. Holy hell, this smells exactly like a big chunk of pumpkin pie with a scoop of whipped cream on top. EXACTLY. There is no other way to describe it. Flavor is Not as intense as the aroma. very malty and bready, not alot of bitterness, somewhat mild for such a big beer. Does not seem like 9%. Mouthfeel is chewy and carbonation is generous.

Botlle thanks to beerbill. Clear amber with a white head. Aroma is pumpkin pie spice and pie crust, with vanilla wafer. Smooth medium body. Incredible flavor mirrors the aroma with authentic pumpkin flesh, pie spice and vanilla on a bready, buttery pie crust malty base. Great pumpkin beer.

As the name implies this is the KING of all pumpkin beers. Might be a tad sweet for some, but the aroma of this beer is second to none. This beer smells like fresh baked pumpkin pie. Itís unbelievable, Lacing is very good in this beer.This beer is so complex. You get an overload of pumpkin pie at first taste but then comes the huge malt backbone. Itís such a nice earthy malt flavor. This is a strong beer so be careful. Just because it tastes so good with no alcohol presence at all doesnt mean it wont knock you oout.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Another gusher. I havenít opened any premium beers in months, and the last two have made a total mess of things. This pours with a hazed vermillion body beneath a raucous, fluffy, cream-colored head. Intense aroma is well-spiced and reminiscent of a hearty loaf of pumpkin bread, plenty of nutmeg and graham crackers. Deceptions abound when tasting this beer, since hop and malt character simply give way to the impression that you are consuming an alcohol-infused version of liquid pumpkin bread. Sticky mouthfeel with a mildly effervescent tingle. Hearty and pleasurable in a niche where many pumpkin beers simply cause me to emit another sigh. ~~~~~~~ Purchased October, 2007, Binnyís, Orland Park, IL
