4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of the best pumpkin beers on the planet. The 2010 version was sweet almost pumpkin pie flavor, followed by a big hop finish, which may have over powered the sweet malt and spice in this brew. Palate was creamy and silky. A great overall beer but previous years i feel were better, due to less hops in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Toasted pumpkin seed aroma that follows though on the palate. Roasted pumpkin pumas with a hint of butterscotch and vanilla. A bit of a one note beer, but defiantly well struck note. If this beer falls short anywhere is in the appearance, the head lacks depth and is thin and colorless. Overall a tasty pumpkin beer but lacks depth overall. Good baking beer add a little to Thanksgiving pumpkin pie, adds robust pumpkin flavor to soups with pumpkin or squash.

Spicy notes give off a lot of cinnamon flavor and smell. Aroma is strong and welcoming. Wonderful imperial pumpkin ale. An extremely light body and easy drink for a 9%. Definite must try if a fan of autumn seasonal.

Why oh why isnít this available all fall/winter???? This is the best. Not too pumpkiny. Not over-the-top spices. Great bready notes highlight the pie crust with a tinge of a burnt edge. It rocks on tap and ainít too shabby out of a bottle either.

I actually like this more than any pumpkin beer I’ve ever had, but that’s not saying much for me.
It’s kind of like pumpkin taffy without the sugar. It’s smooth, and it’s spicy- but the spicy is more cinnamon and clove rather than cinnamon and nutmeg.
I’m sure I’m gonna buy it again before this season is over.

Bottle from By The Bottle, Discover Great Beer! Pours clean,cooper color, not overly carbonated. Aroma of pumkin,nutmeg, allspice,and freshly baked pie crust. Alcohol makes a big appearance in the finish. Hoppy Halloween enjoy!

First of all, the aroma is amazing, like many Souther Tierís beers. However, I donít get as much of a pumpkin flavor as I do a ginger spice flavor from this beer. It is very good and does help welcome in the fall.

Probably the best pumpkin ale made by a brewer. Has a bit of a bite at first then has a Cinnamon/ Pumpkin spice taste and finishes with a smooth buttery taste.
