3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a clear, dark, amber color with very minimal head formation, just a thin ring of tan head.
S: A lot of great spice smells that are certainly reminiscent of pumpkin pie. Good nutmeg and cinnamon as well as some actual pumpkin.
T: Nutmeg, cinnamon, and all spice start this one off providing an almost liquid pumpkin pie flavor. Good sweet and starchy pumpkin character, too.
M: The body is medium with a low to medium carbonation and a fairly smooth mouthfeel overall.
D: One of the best pumpkin beers I had this year (or ever, I suppose). Tyranena makes another good beer.

Bottle from Guerde. Pours dark amber with very little head. Aromas of roasted caramel and pie spice. Medium plus body with strong carbonation. Flavor is kind of squash with pie spice. Finishes with lots of spice flavor. There’s a detectable pumpkin in the end - unless the spice is messing with me.

Amber pour, mostly white head. Wow the spices and pumpkin come through very nicely in the nose, with some nice yeasty qualities and bready notes. Pumpkin bread! Nice spiced pumpkin bread. Really enjoyable.

Typical high-gravity pumpkin beer, tastes more like malt and spiced than anything.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Tyranena. Poured medium orange with a moderate cap of off-white head. The aroma was very sweet with graham crackers, caramel, and fruity notes laced with strong nutmeg and pumpkin meat.. so sweet it was almost candied. The flavor was quite sweet again with a candied backing.. pumpkin meat, cloves, and nutmeg all surrounded, laced with abundant alcohol.. just a touch of licorice on the very back. Very sweet as mentioned on the palate and stronger than expected.. too strong and spicy on the back, but still solid overall.

Bottle thanks to Sarah! Poured a clear amber orange with a near white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of pumpkin and spice with a bit of a grain backbone. Flavor was similar with a strong pumpkin note and growing spice.
