3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz. bomber, pours a clear orange with a two finger white head that drifts to a whispy covering, minimal lacing. Aroma is pumpkin pie filling, fresh carved pumpkin guts, nutmeg, and other fall spices. Flavor is more of the same, with the nutmeg and other spice coming out a bit more; can’t find that 9% anywhere. The spice got to be a bit much, but overall this is an interesting beer, especially on a cool fall night. Not a favorite style, but can appreciate what’s going on here.

Bomber!!!! MMMmmmmmmmmmmmm pumpkin pie! The nose on this beer was fantastic. Perfect pumpkin smell with some light spices. It really had me thinking I was smelling a fresh baked pumpkin pie. The flavor was good but at sometimes a little too much spices. All in all it was very smooth and balanced. Nice mouthfeel.

Draft at Fat Head’s in Pittsburgh. Pours a translucent orange with a white head that disappears. Aroma of pumpkin pie and alcohol. Medium bodied with average carbonation, boring mouthfeel. Initial flavor of pumpkin pie spices (nutmeg, clove, cinnamon) that transitions to a white pepper like bitterness. Slight vegetal finish, with lots of vodka like alcohol.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle into Pizza Port pint; purchases at Binny’s, Niles IL. Crystal clear pumpkin orange in the glass, initial white head of medium size dissipates quickly to the thinnest of dustings. Smells like yeasty pumpkin pie; not sure I like it, but if you like pumpkin pie, I’m guessing you would. Same on the flavor: creamy texture, lactic sweetness, very natural in the flavors, and the spiciness of the pie flavor lingers in the finish. One of the best "spice" beers I’ve had; I’m just not a huge pumpkin fan, I guess.

Thanks to rustychiles for the share. Pours a beautiful luminescent orange with no head. The aroma is absolutely heavenly on this. Full of pumpkin, butterscotch, and especially nutmeg. Almost too much nutmeg. Flavor exactly reflects the aroma. Alcohol was very well hidden; didn’t poke through and ruin the taste at all. A treat.

Bottle courtesy of santa.
Pours a clear orange with a small soapy head. Aroma of warm pumpkin pie filling, nutmeg, cloves, spices, butterscotch. Flavor is pumpkin,nutmeg,cloves, spices. Very pumpkin-pie like unlike a lot of pumpkin beers it seems less artificial and forced. Nice mouthfeel and a little nutmeg bitterness in the finish.

Pours a cloudy golden-orange color with a thin bubbly off-white head. The aroma......oh my god - liquid pumpkin pie. NO LIE! Down to the cool whip and crust, it is there! I’m almost afraid to taste it because I don’t want to be disappointed. Ok.....drinking it. The taste definetely focuses on the crust of the pie, and also the pumpkin and spices. There is a hint of alcohol and hoppiness, that is wish was even more pushed into the background.

An absolutely incredible beer. Spectacular out of the bottle but damn near ambrosia on tap. Well balanced pumpkin pie flavor and a crisp finish to the malty body. Sumptuous pie spice aroma with faint pumpkin in there as well. Truly divine in front of a fire.
