3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark copper color with a thick creamy off white head. Sweet malty aroma with yams, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove yeastiness. Creamy mouthfeel. Sweet caramel malt start with rich yams, molasses, maple syrup, vanilla. Some raisin and prune flavors in the middle with cinnamon and nutmeg and finishing with a yeastiness and slight tart flavor. This is a really rich and complex brew. This beer may have ruined all other pumpkin beers for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle from Biggie Wine & Liquor. Amber reddish brown and hazy appearance with a small, diminishing light tan head. Aroma of sweet potatoes, light maple syrup, brown sugar, pumpkin spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, caramel, toffee and light molasses. Flavor is similar to the aroma with fruity esters and light notes of alcohol, subdued when it warms up. Medium spiciness and mild to moderately sweet with minimal to light bitterness. A little syrupy on the palate, medium to full body, with a lingering, light boozy finish. Not bad overall, enticing aroma but somewhat unbalanced flavor and finish.

On tap at the Reservoir; Pours brown with almost no head. Aroma of nutmeg, other spices, yam, and sugar. Taste is SUPER sweet, and then cloves, nutmeg, and more sugar. Heavy body, cloyingly sweet, pretty gross.

Big sweet yam blast! Dark cloudy orange. Nose had some yam and pumpkin spice. Taste was hugely sweet at first. Settled a little bit to give some yam, booze, and pumpkin spices with a full and slightly creamy mouthfeel. Warm you up and put you in a sugar coma.

Aroma: intense caramel, some cider, spices, pumpkin. Appearance: hazy brown, small, beige head. Taste: heavy sweet. Palate: initial sweets continue, turning light sour, heavy malts, then sour spices.

Copper color with white head. Aroma is quite sweet with a definitive Belgian yeast spice and dry fruit character. Sweet with the nice dry fruit and spice notes. Tastes like a pumpkin despite the yams with a hint of tartness on the edges.
