Pours nice amber with lasting white head. Huge aroma of pumkin and spice. Nice bready base to balance the slightly sweet pumkin flavor. Lasting spice finish to a great beer. Probably the best pumkin I have had.

Strong aroma of pumpkin and spices. Golden in color, not a lot of carbonation or head. Taste is lightly sweet, with the taste of pumpkin pie spices. Not a strong hop presence. Some bitterness in the finish, but that may be from the spices rather than the hops.

Thanksgiving, so was aged about a year. Pumpkin ales are hit or miss for me, but I enjoyed this one. Not overwhelming on the spices, and the pumpkin stands out through in body and taste. Getting some vanilla or cream in the flavor as well. Has a cloudy medium orange to light brown appearance. Good enough to sample again.

Nice looking orangy brown. Malty and spicy aroma. Medium full body. Not much alcohol. Flavor is rather sweet. Malty flavors, I guess a pumpkin-like background, but mostly the spices predominate. A bit sticky and syrupy. I guess itís well made, I just donít get the pumpkin beer thing.

Amazing how you can actually taste the crust. Very sweet and enjoyable but one per season is enough .

Shared 22 oz. bottle. Pale copper color. Short-lasting head. Smells and tastes like pumpkin pie, crust included. Maybe a hint of vanilla. Fairly sweet with almost no bitterness. Lacks balance. Interesting, but most likely a one-time purchase. For dessert only.

Aroma: Genuine pumpkin pie spice and actual crust aroma - not kidding; Appearance: much lighter than expected, a pale straw color with hazy pour and significant carbonation; Taste: it really is like pumpkin pie with a beer backbone; we didnít believe the other reviews but itís true; finish is long and sweet; Overall: very surprising flavor; like it in small quantities but it could quickly become too sweet and cloying. Good to have once per year.

2015: Brown color, light carbonation. Smells of fresh baked pumpkin pie. The spices take the forefront of this beer. Cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice. The pumpkin is not hidden or a background note like in many inferior pumpkin beers. This beer isnít afraid to be pumpkin pie in a glass. So, if you like pumpkin pie: there ya go. If not: Donít even bother with this beer. I love pumpkin pie. :)

Part of a sampler at Jet Rock at PHL terminal B. Clear golden orange with no head. Spice and whisky aromas dominate. Moderate alcohol burn. Taste is like a shot of whisky and not much else. Tasted barrel aged - but the barkeep confirmed that this was the regular blend.
