Bottle @ home. Fairly clear, brown/orange appearance with a tan head. Moderately spicy, roasted pumpkin, caramel malty nose. Caramel/toffee malty, spicy cinnamon/nutmeg, roasted pumpkin, earthy hoppy flavor. Pretty solid pumpkin beer though a little spicy which is to be expected from the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Capone’s. Deeper amber pour with a small sized off white head. Pumpkin and spices. Balance of spices and pumpkin (but personally like the balance to tip to pumpkin).

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours turbid deep brown with ruby edges and a 1-finger off-white head. Nose is pumpkin puree, pie crust, brown sugary malt, acidic hops. Tastes tart, with notes of pumpkin, hops, malt, some funky acidic notes, and a dry astringent finish. Not a great pumpkin ale.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark reddish with white head from bottle, aroma has nice notes of clean pumpkin, bread, toffee, molasses, cinnamon, and cardamom in there as well. Balanced aroma, no negative qualities there. Taste however is not so lucky, some slight notes of pumpkin but moves into some weird sweetness, touch of toffee with a very watery finish, slight hints of spice throughout.
