NikkTwist (2087) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Draft at The Irish Pol. Hazy caramel amber pour with a very large soapy head. Creamsickle aroma. Well carbonated. Juicy pumpkin flavor underneath. Hints of cranberries, tangerines, and lemon zest. Vanilla beans. Strong spicy finish. Cinnamon. Nutmeg. Allspice. Freshly cracked black pepper. Interesting deconstructed take on a Pumpkin Beer. Well done.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5658) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Sampled on draft at Denny’s Beer Barrel this beer poured a dark caramel color with a small creamy orange-tan head that left decent lacing. The aroma was very strong sweet caramel, toffee and butterscotch. The flavor was a bit off but had strong toffee, butterscotch, a sweet presence and cinnamon. Long butterscotch and cinnamon finish. Medium body. Odd but interesting.

Leafs93 (1918) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Pours hazy amber with an off white head. Aroma is spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, caramel and pumpkin. Taste is sweet with overwhelming amount of spices coming through. If you like pumpkin beers with a ton of spices then this is the beer for you. Medium bodied with a slick texture. In small doses this would be ok for me but the spices were just to much.

Pours a nice amber colour with no head or lacing. Smells of cotton candy. Taste nutmeg, brown sugar with a bitter aftertaste. Not a bad one.

Transfer from BA review on 1-18-14- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed orange-copper color with a two finger head of an off white color. Seen within the brew are some particulates with tons of carbonation bubbles seen streaming up through the body of the beer. The head has a fantastic level of retention, slowly fading to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is rather strong of a roasted pumpkin smell with some hints of a bready nature mixed within. Lots of big sweet smells are there as well being mostly of a caramel and vanilla nature, but also containing some smells of toffee and a bit of molasses. Along with the pumpkin and sweet, so too comes the pumpkin pie spices, with aromas of nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, and clove all present. Taste – The taste begins with a nice roasted pumpkin flavor mixed with some notes of breadiness. Some caramel sweetness and well as a bit of toffee are in the taste as well creating a moderately sweeter flavor for the brew; at least upfront. Soon after the initial taste and enhancing as the flavors advances are flavors of the spices that were detected in the nose, with nutmeg and clove being the strongest. The sweeter flavors begin losing ground however as the flavor advances leaving a slightly drier taste in the middle of the flavor profile. Some flavors of earth and a bit of hay come to the tongue more toward the end of the taste. These are accompanied by a slight enhancement of the roasted pumpkin flavor as well as the sweetness which had dwindled in the middle of the taste. In the end with the mix of flavors that is present in the flavor profile ends up leaving a lightly sweetened and spiced and rather strongly roasted pumpkin flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel -The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker and creamier side with a carbonation level that is one the higher side. The thickness is quite nice for the pumpkin flavors of the brew with the carbonation level helping to accentuate the lighter sweet flavors, giving them just enough of a presence to keep the brew drinkable but not overly sweet. Overall –A nice pumpkin brew that was not overly sweet, but yet had a nice balanced roasted and spiced flavor. There was just enough sweetness to enhance and compliment the spice and roasted pumpkin flavors.

Draft at a restaurant. Clear, orange beer with a light head. Interesting pumpkin with a unique spice blend that thankfully is not overdone. Seemed a bit hoppy which is different. Would have again.
