3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ok I am all over the board on this. Plus it is quite possible that I have been wrong all along with my dislike of the punkin beer. This is loaded with punkin taste. Loaded. Its a sweetness that has very little of the spice that Dogfish is overwhelmed with. This is a total oppisite in the same style. Very interesting and I must admit, much more drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2011 Beautiful amber orange color, no head. This smells exactly like pumpkin pie, it has all the aspects of one in there. Suprisingly carbonated at first taste, well balanced beer. There is an almost buttery taste, but not much pumpkin pie. Goes down with not much aftertaste. Very good.

Hazy copper orange with a thin, almost non-existant off white head. Rich cinnamon and nutmeg aroma, pumpkin,vanilla and ginger snaps. Flavor is rich and sweet. big flavor of ginger snap cookie, pumpkin,sweet potato,cinnamon,nutmeg. The undesputed KING of pumkin beers!

Like a pumpkin in a patch the amber head quietly fades in the mist. Pumpkin front and center on the nose with with notes of pumpkin pie spices. Flavor is very sweet and malts/hops are little distant.

Pours a nice orange hue, with a bit of carbonation. The aroma is amzing! If you like pumkin pie this is one of the best beer aromas you will probably smell in quite a while, otherwise you may dislike it. The taste is much the same, though there is also a few notes of ripe fruit like figs and possibly plums. The overall taste is that of spices and cinnamon, but it also very well balanced with a nice taste of pumpkin permeating. An excellent and balanced beer for the fall season.

Pours a nice orange flavor with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of pumpkin and lot of spices that basically comprise pumpkin pie. Taste exactly like pumpkin pie and a bit nutty as well, like it was made from seeds. Best pumpkin beer I have had so far

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pouts dark orange, white film of head. Aromas are pumpkin, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, and caramel, with some biscuit elements. Taste is pumpkin pie. Not like other pumpkin beers I've had. Legit. Pumpkin, spices, cinnamon sugar, sure. But what blows me away is the crust. You can TASTE the crust. It's just unreal. Spice flavors linger in the finish.

Not really a fan of the pumpkin beers, but this one was spectacular. Not over spiced, smooth and highly drinkable. Subtle 9%abv.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rich, buttery, malty, creamy pumpkin aroma. Pumpkin colored, with a rapidly dissapating thin head. Similar to the nose, this beer tastes creamy on the palate, with the pumpkin shining through as well as a bit of spice (cinnamon predominates). Lightly carbonated and a bit light compared to what the aroma suggests. Alcohol is well hidden. Unique, nice take on the style.
