Nice heavier pumpkin beer which i can appreciate. Still a little too much spice.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Draft. Poured clear hazy orange copper color with an average off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid doughy pumpkin and small alcohol aroma. Medium body with a creamy texture and flat carbonation. Medium balanced pumpkin sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid seasonal beer.

On tap at the Capital Alehouse (downtown), Richmond VA 9/11/2011. Dark brown with a slight, off-white head. Sweet, caramel and pumpkin aroma. Flavour had milk chocolate, more pumpkin and a hint of cinnamon and sweetish finish. Ok.

DiarmaidBHK (3395) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Bottle from Bruisin Ales. Pours black with half an inch of khaki foam. Slight hint of pumpkin on the nose. The taste is muddled and confused with nothing standing out. The combination of flavors is a bit off-putting.

jcos (1527) - Maryland, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Location/Date:Bottle on November 5th, 2011.

Appearance: Pours a dark opaque.
Aroma: Aroma is of pumpkin and roasty malt..
Taste: Taste like an okay porter with some pumpkin as the sweetness. Light hop, stronger on roasted malt.
Palate:Slightly less than medium body, lingering aftertaste.

Summary:I like this beer even with the only okay rating as it is a different take on the pumpkin beer.

Bottle. Medium dark brown thin head. Spicy yet clean smell. Overly spiced flavor. Harsh mouth feel.
