One of the better pumpkin beers I’ve ever had. Adds some additional spice, some earthiness and some pepper to what you’d usually expect from a pumpkin beer. Picked this up in Fort Collins in 2013.

On tap last November at Stapleton Tap House. Listed as 9.5% Pours copper brown. Aroma of burnt malts, spices and nutmeg. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of brown sugar, burnt malts, minerals, pumpkin, tobacco, cardamon, cinnamon, pepper. Overall big and bold with a wide array of spices.
Re-rate mid November at Stapleton Tap House. big aroma of herbs, coriander, sage, pumpkin. flavors of sweet malts, coriander, sage, minerals, melon. Overall big and flavorful with significant spices. I think slight aging has helped and I’m upping my rating.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, thanks to Armin, 12/02/2013. Pours murky reddish brown, thin light tan head fades to the surface, thin ring of lacing. Aroma is mildly sweet pumpkin with brown sugar, noticeable coriander lends a soft floral overtone, with earthy garam spice, subtle yeast in the finish. Taste follows suit- sweet pumpkin notes with an edge of Belgian yeast, dry herbal bitterness, spices present though not as strong as in the nose, lingering through the aftertaste. Medium thin body, high carbonation prickly on the palate. Interesting brew.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2013 Excellent beer. Doesn’t slam you with pumpkin or fall spices, but rather introduces those flavors in a non-traditional way. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
