Smell is strongly pumpkin, the maltiness is pleasant, the flavor is pretty smooth but different than what you would expect from the smell. Toasted malt is the primary taste with a strong cinnamon presence I didnít get at all in the smell.

12oz draft into short stem goblet. Pours a medium orange itha medium white head. Huge aromas of pumpkin, vanilla, nutmeg, and buttery crust. Flavors of pumpkin, spicy grains, finished by sweet spices of nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice. Semi oily mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Decent pumpkin beer thatís a touch too sweet.

2013- Massive fresh pumpkin aromas during pour, also butter/cookie and ginger. Pours a clear yellow/straw color with a white head and good lacing. Taste of ginger snap, bread, buttery graham cracker and hints of bitterness and other spices. Good stuff!

Pours orange brown with a nice but quickly dissipating white foam. Smell is sweet almost too sweet. Definitely smells like pumpkin pie. The taste is like a liquid pie as well. For a 9% abv it certainly does not taste like it. Falls a little short of great.

Bottle courtesy of Jarspag. Pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma of fresh baked pie crust, buttery shortbread cookies, and pumpkin pie. Taste is the same as aroma but less prominent. Medium mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness and smooth alcohol.

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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep golden pour with a fluffy white head. Inviting aroma of roasted pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a little booze. Taste is sweet pumpkin, lots of cinnamon spice, and a hint of nutmeg. Has sort of a creamy, buttery, vanilla overtone with a long, pleasant aftertaste. Velvety mouthfeel and not even a hint of alcohol flavor. Outstanding, definitely my favorite pumpkin beer. Itís definitely pumpkin pie in a bottle, so itís not for people who are looking for more of a "beer" quality in their pumpkin ales.

On tap @ Lazy Boy Saloon. Poured a clear copper with no recognizable head and minimal lacing. Aroma certainly resembles a pumpkin pie with hints of cinnamin, nutmeg, and fresh pumpkin. Taste is obviously a pumpkin beer, but mellow relative to most pumpkin beers, balanced by slight hoppiness. Flavors include similar spices as aroma with pumpkin puree and maple syrup also evident. Most I have ever enjoyed a pumpkin beer, but would still limit myself to drinking one.

On tap @ the Beer Engine. I was SO excited to find it on tap since I thought I totally missed the season and any chance of getting some pumking this year. Pours a very pumpkin orange only a slight bit of off-white head. Beautiful natural pumpkin taste, nutmeg spices and everything nice. Quite a treat, certainly the best pumpkin beer Iíve had thus far.
