A: The beer pours a dark amber, almost copper, color with a finger of khaki head. S: Tons and tons of pie spices here. Heavy on the nutmeg, cinnamon, all spice, and vanilla. There is quite a bit of toasted malt and caramel to it as well. As is often the case, not much pumpkin. T: Very heavy pie spice character on the palate as well. Nutmeg, cinnamon, and all spice are all there. Nice vanilla sweetness to go along with the caramel and toffee flavors. M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. O: Thought this was a very solid pumpkin beer. It did become a touch boozy as the glass warmed up, but it didn’t really bother me.

Bottle shared with my wifu. Pours a somewhat hazed amber with a thin white head. Soft spices on the nose with a hint of fruit and yeast, a bit of sweaty pumpkin flesh. Medium bodied, lightly spicy, dry dusty malt and pumpkin. Earthy and pungent bitterness, a little bit of weird sweetness, a touch of Belgian yeast. Interesting, but not something I really want to drink again.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Bottle:   Amber, slight haze, fiery, moderate pillowy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Spicy nose, cinnamon, nutmeg, but also some caramel apple and candied cirus peel.   Spicy on the tongue, nutmeg, clove, a touch of spiced apple pie.   Not as complex as the aroma, but still enjoyable.   Has a slight mealy tinge to it.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finish is a little acidic, but otherwise remains spicy.   Not too strong, or heavy, with a bountiful nose, this one was enjoyable for a Autumn type brew.

Draft@ The Ale House. Served in a tulip glass. Copper and orange color with great head retention. Aroma is nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin with cinnamon being the most dominate. Cinnamon in the flavor is again; the most dominate flavor with, ginger, caramel malts, biscuit, and of course pumpkin. A true to style and very drinkable pumpkin ale.

Pours deep amber into a snifter. Off-white head recedes to sicken surface. Candy corn and nutmeg aromas. Sweet caramel upfront turning to cinnamon and ginger and the slightly sour finish.
