4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are extreme. Never had this significant taste of pumpkin in a beer before. It makes all other pumpkin alles I have tasted fade into oblivion. It is nothing like any of the other 3800+ beers I have tasted so far. It is closest to what we in Denmark call a "spice cake" or a "beer cake". Really intense pumpkin. Behind all this there is also some caramel, malt, molasses and notes of hops.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at HogTownHarry Fest ’08. Again thanks to Harry for this one. The brewer needs a really good seasoning. Don’t know what that means, but apparently it was hilariously funny on the night. Amber colour with thin beige head. Too spicy for me. Cinnamon and banana bread. Cereal with dried banana in it. Some ginger. There is something there I can’t quite place. It’s weird, but ok.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 22oz, courtesy of fonefan. It’s a slighlty hazy one, golden-orange in color and with a very small head. Allspice, ginger, cloves and cinnamon on the nose, sort of like a gingerbread but with more spicyness. Malty-sweet flavor with the same spices found in the aroma. Some bitterness towards the end. Full-bodied. Spiced and caramel-malty finish. Well, not my favorite beer, but nice and tasteful anyway. 111030

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 0,65 ltr.
Clear amber color, small white head. Aroma - never had a beer, which has so strong aroma of brown Finnish Christmas Cookies. Syrap, cinnamon etc. Same with flavor: Christmas cookies in liquid form. Perfumic. Not much pumpkin flavors and not much going on in this brew, except Christmas spices.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle) Pours a clear deep orange with a medium-sized creamy off-white head. Wow! An absurdly amount of pumpkin (could smell across the room after the glass was empty an hour or more later)…also notes of nutmeg, caramel, and French vanilla candle. Flavor of pumpkin, caramel, homemade vanilla ice cream melting, and whip cream that is reminiscent of Thanksgiving Day dessert.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(22oz bottle) Small off-white head diminishes quickly, crystal clear amber body. Aroma is not especially strong, medium sweet, ginger/allspice, light clove. Taste is medium sweet, pumpkin pie, light allspice. Fair amount of alcohol evident, though its presence becomes more muted as the beer approaches room temperature For that matter, the beer as a whole kept improving as it warmed, peaking at room temperature. Smooth medium-full body. From my perspective, the high alcohol doesn’t enhance pumpkin beers, as I don’t think too highly of Weyerbacher’s either. Final score is a composite of consuming the bottle as it warmed from 52F to room temperature (71F) -- the lower temp would have scored worse, and the higher temp would have rated higher.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. [thank you, Secret Santa]
[at dedollewaitor’s Odense tasting]
Pours lightly hazy orange with a fine, creamy, yellow head. Aroma is heavily spiced, nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin and a note of ’wet socks’?! Fine mouthfeel. Flavour begind with pure pumpkin, then good spiciness. Sweet, peppery, lightly vinious. Nice, but not really my thing...
