Such a total pumpkin pie aroma, the vegetal pumpkin as well as the bready crust. A lot of spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, all pumpkin pie smells. Taste mirrors the very vegetal pumpkin with a lot of spices too. Some sweetness, but really just an overall dazzling blast of pumpkin pie. Quite delicious.

Sweet spicty aroma. Pours a beautiful pumpkin orange. Nicely carbonated. Sweet taste with definite pumpkin aftertaste. Alcohol nicely hidden. This beer is a real treat. One pint was enough for me with the ABV and the sweetness being what it is. I will definitely buy another bomber.

Light straw pour ith minimal white head. Nose is sweet with ginger and nutmeg. Immediate mild resins hop yields to a potpourri of flavor. Candy sweet malt mixes with dominant nutmeg, brown sugar, French toast. Ends with subtle cinnamon and marshmallow. Best pumpkin brew I’ve had. Cheers to my sensual friend FunkyBrewster for this nectar.

Bottle. Hazy orangish copper with a fine head and good lacing. Aroma is pumpkin, nutmeg, some other spices, and brown sugar. Reminds me of Autumn and the trees changing colors. Really digging this aroma. Flavor is mostly sweet but I can taste some bitterness which makes me think of hops although I couldn’t pick any up on the aroma. Palate is medium bodied, very smooth, moderate carbonation, and leaves a little aftertaste which makes a second sip inevidable. Alcohol is well hidden but is slightly warming a few seconds after swallowing. Expectations exceeded.

The nose here is sweet pumpkin pie, with a waft of nutmeg and clove. As sweet as it is, there are vegetal notes here that balance it out. Slightly acidic. A dessert beer in all senses.

02-11-12 Bouteille 2012: Belle apparence jaune-dorée-orangée, avec une vive effervescence et une belle mousse blanche épaisse asser percistante. Délicieux arômes de pain d’épices et de gâteaux avec des notes de caramel. Bonne petite note sucrée avec une petite amertume et une note piquante, très bien balancée. Corps plutôt léger avec une texture mince et légèrement soyeuse. Carbonisation normale et finale aux notes d’épices d’automne et légèrmeent assèchant. Drinkanbility parfaite. Possiblement la meilleure bière d’Halloween!

Smells spicy. On tap. Brown. Red. Warm. This is my favorite pumkin beer. I always get excited about pumpkins. Who wouldn’t? Halloween is a great holiday. However, most pumpkin beers overdo the spice but this does not. Mild taste, not too sweet. Seriously guys this is amazingly good. This actually ties my highest rated beer of all time. Sure imperial stouts are tasty, but everyone expects them to be that way. This greatly surpasses every other pumpkin beer i’ve ever seen, and is a great winner.
