3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is not what I was expecting, pours a dark brown. I was thinking more of a Pumking. Smell is of nutmeg, little ginger, cinnamon, orange peel and pumpkin. I didn’t like the taste at first but when it warmed this beer really shined. Thick and flavorful, wouldn’t mind another bottle or 3.

"I’m guessing this was released late last summer/early fall, but it’s held up very well. Initial aroma out of the bottle and on first pour is all-spice, pumpkin, dark roast and chocolate. flavor is much the same (at first) with a little lactose to smooth out the mouthfeel. just about everyone really liked this one. As it warms, the cedar becomes more and more the prominent player, adding a layer of complexity not expected. Very nice pumpkin beer, behind only Elysian & Cigar City (which ironically you think you are drinking since they are usually the ones to age on cedar)."

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep black in color with rich tan head... Aroma of smoked malts, intense spice notes, like sniffing autumn... Flavor is sweet lactose initially that gives way to smoked cedar, burnt roasted malts with notes of pumpkin and spices... Smoke is a little much, but definitely enjoyable... Solid per usual from the Bruery

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: Dark Opaque Hue, Passes No Light, Light Brown Head, Good Lacing
S: Strong Cedar, Smoke, Pumpkin
T: Smoked Cedar, Sweet Potatoes, Vanilla, Milk Chocolate, Mild Lactose
M: Decent Carbonation, Medium To Full Bodied, Mildly Bitter, Somewhat Watery
Overall, this beer retains a lot of the cedar flavor and smokiness but it seems like there is too much going on at one time and almost cancels each thing out, way too complex.

Tap at the brewpub - should this really be retired if I just bought it today? Very dark thick looking pour with a light brown head. Pumpkin, ginger, lactose, and some spices going on here. This is yummy.

Bottle @ Aarhus tasting. Black with a brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, chocolate, cedar and rather spicy - Christmas spices. Flavor is quite sweet and moderate bitter. Dry and roasted moderate bitter finish. Why the hell did they have to add all those spices? 030713
