Pours clear light amber with a small white head. Aroma is that of freshly baked pumpkin pies. The taste starts semi sweet with tastes of carmel, nutmeg and pumpkin followed by a fast burst of bitterness that ends quickly and then moves to a long spiced pumpkin pie taste. This is an amazing beer that I will drink on a regular basis. Treat yourself to one of these the next time you go to the store,

I had the bottle of this the same day that I had the draft. The bottle was a poor imitation of the draft. This rating is for the draft. Sampled at Smokin’ Joe’s in Pittsburgh PA this beer poured a dark amber color with a small yellow-white head. The aroma was sweet butterscotch, caramel and hazelnut. Very strong and appealing. The flavor was very strong with hazelnut, butterscotch and caramel with a touch of light hops and spices - mainly nutmeg and clove. The mouthfeel was very thick and syrupy. Delicious! Almost overwhelming. Intense but wonderful!

Very nice aroma, smells like a bakery. Spicy flavor, pumpkin with some vanilla. Stronger than most pumpkin beers, right at the top of this style.

22oz bottle, fresh. Nose is straight pumpkin pie, taste is pretty close to pumpkin pie as well with a fair bit more malt than i expected, this is a bit too sweet and syrupy for me, although that is expected with ST, could have been more bubbly and light, still this is as close as pumpkin pie in a bottle.

Bottle. Pours a clear orange with nice creamsickle head. Nose is pumpkin, dough and spice. The flavor of pumpkin in this beer is INCREDIBLE. By far, the best pumpkin beer and the only one with discernable pumpkin. The others are pumpkin pie spice beers. I want more!!

From 22-oz bomber and purchased from Cellar’s Wine & Spirits in St Paul, MN, pours a semi-clear copper amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that dissipates nearly clean with some light spotty lacing. Aroma of pumpkin pie filling, a touch of cinnamon, nutmeg, light sugar and caramel malt, Flavor is full bodied, very lightly carbonated with flavors of mostly pumpkin unlike all the other pumpkin ales I’ve tried over the years. More pumpkin flavor than any other flavors of caramel malt, and nutmeg. Finish has a semi-sweet aftertaste of pumpkin, a touch of wintergreen and nutmeg. Awesome. Using this one as a comparison to all other pumpkin beers.
