otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2012
Appearance: pours deep and dark – mahogany, ruby, black cherry. Off-white head fades fast into a collar and head of broken film. Swirls with a bubby collar, no lace.
Nose: rich and intriguing. Cinnamon sticks and chocolate are one and the same. Roasted and slight charred pumpkin and spices. Maple and molasses for a sweet edge. Roasted chestnuts and chocolate lead into s’mores and graham crackers. Pumpkin spice cake.
Palate: medium bodied and silky smooth mouthfeel. Pumpkin spiced breads and cake, pulp, and more spices. Chocolate and graham in the breath. Lightly dries the palate, sweet silken maple and molasses along the edges. Fire roasted pumpkin ending in sweet molasses and maple with cinnamon sticks.
Final Thoughts: delicious. For my first foray into Tommyknocker I am impressed. A rich and never overwhelming pumpkin harvest ale to welcome the chill with. I’ll gladly drink this seasonal year after year after year.

Tastes like pumkin and molasas and other fall spices. Medium brown with very little head. One of the better pumkin ales in myopinion!!

S_Side_Smitty (436) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Pots a cloudy dark brown with a thin head. Looks thick - visually. The aroma is molasses, pumpkin, and a faint "toasty-chocolate". I get a funky yeast aroma as well. Taste is disappointing. The malt flavor disappears quickly along with the spices. The flavors are muddled and it’s hard to distinguish anything. Leaves me wanting.

natejgood (390) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Pours a clear medium to dark brown with very little head or carbonation. A bit of an ale smell with the smallest hint of malt. Definitely a bit of a pumpkin flavor, but a bit sweeter than I like my pumpkin ales and also lacking a bit of the pumpkin spice flavor I love. Not a bad pumpkin ale by any means, but it could use more pumpkin and spice flavor.

dchmela (2614) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2011
From the 12oz bottle. Reddish brown pour with a thin off white head. Warm pumpkin meat aroma with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. Smooth malt body with nice notes of pumpkin, cinnamon and spices. Nice brew.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4843) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very dark caramel-brown color with a medium sized creamy tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was caramel, molasses, raisin and nut. The flavor was bitter and nutty with light notes of nutmeg, molasses, pepper, and wood. There was a semi-sweet and roasty malt base. The finish was long and complex. Medium body. Interesting.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2011
12oz. Bottle: Aroma of pumpkin, spice, molasses, and cream. Poured deep amber/brown in color with a small, off-white head that disappeared except for around the edges. Cloudy. Lightly sparkling. Full of small particles throughout. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of malt, pumpkin, slight spice, and some sewage. Medium body. Average texture. Soft carbonation. Pumpkin, slight spice, and sewage finish. Almost a drain pour.
