3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled with tderoeck, 77ships and Benzai. Basically a fruit stout, albeit with pumpkin instead of the usual sweet fruits. Dense and stable, light beige head, colour very dark bronze, near to black. Aroma strongly reminiscent of cloves like any American pumpkin ale, chocolate, liquorice, coffee, rice pudding, vanilla; rich taste of fruity sweetness, tangy spiciness and caramelly and chocolatey malts, full but still less ’fat’ and oily than expected from the style, with gentle roasted bitterishness in the finish as well as spicy yeastiness and peppery hops accent. Interesting and very tasty.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
750 ml. bottle. +/- 1/4 th consumed @ “Tim needs to get rid of his ticks” Tasting. Enjoyed together with tderoeck, Benzai & Alengrin. Obtained in a trade with AdamJackson. Pours dark blackish brown, little tanned head. Nose is butter squash, sweet potato, cinnamon, nutmeg, plenty of rice porridge & soy butter, incredible. Taste is rice porridge, nutmeg cacao butter, butter squash, soy butter, cinnamon, sweet, pie crust,…. Awesome, if only it were thicker, (feels a bit thin), I would have given this 4.9. This is even better than Pumking. If this were local, I would drink so much of this.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled from bottle @ Tim needs to get rid of his ticks tasting. Dark red-brown color. Aroma reminds me of "speculaas". Taste "speculaas", herbs or spices, a hint of sweet and some bitter, dough, cookie. Don’t like it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pumpkin spice aroma. Bomber with a bad label. Deep, clear ruby black, not much head. Dry, for the most part. Allspice, dark malts, spice bitterness. Pastry tones at times. Slightly heavy body. Sampled a few mediocre brews tonight and this didn’t break the pattern. ABC Liquors, Betton.

A: Pumpkin pie with the crust and all. Brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
