Pours dark brown with a thin white head. Aroma is molasses, pumpkin, nutmeg and caramel. Taste is sweet with some spicy undertones. Medium bodied with some stickiness. I thought this was pretty solid, the pumpkin came through more as it warmed and this was seasoned appropriately.

Pretty typical as far as most pumpkin beers go. It added uninspiring doses of nutmeg and cinnamon and molasses to an otherwise uninspiring base marzen. Not bad, but just nothing crazy. Didn’t really pick up any pumpkin either.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber beer with a thin off white head. NIce spicey nose with burnt sugar, nutmeg and cinnimon notes. Thin beer, with lots of water in the taste. Molassess sweetness with some burnt sugar, nutmeg, cinnimon and pie crust. Really too watery, but the flavor is right for a pumpkin beer.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2013 Bottle.
Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark amber-brown.
Aroma is lightly malty (cookie), with a strong note of nutmeg, a note of cola, and a light note of pumpkin.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic.
The nose is dominated by nutmeg and thus it smells pleasant enough...there aren’t really any off notes, but I certainly wish it was more interesting. Ditto in the mouth...simple and a slightly foul aftertaste leaves much to be desired. The weakest point is the mouthfeel, which is quite thin and watery and metallic...unpleasant.

Darker than the average pumpkin beer, which is enticing at first glance. Mild spicy aroma that fades quickly. Taste, lacking in all departments.

12 oz. Bottle. Medium strength nutmeg scent with dark fruit hint. Minimal head to ring, rich brown. Medium/Light body with a silky feel. Nutmeg pumpkin spice with molasses brown flavor. Kind of lacking actual pumpkin flavor. Decent, but not the best pumpkin I’ve had lately.
