This one other very highly rated but was not my favorite. Very strong pumpkin taste but not enough spice. Would not try again.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a a fairly unclear amber brown beer with a small, quickly disappearing white head on top. Aroma of cinnamon, pumpkin spices, nutmeg and other herbal notes. Flavor is rather sweet, cinnamon faded a bit to the background, making way for other spices, malty sweetness and some boozy notes. Really rich, full and has a long sweet aftertaste. Nice one.

Bottle @ RVA 22nd. Floaties in amber color with light head. Nice spiced aroma- not over done. Actually does taste a little pumpkiny under the spice.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled from a bottle,
this beer had a hazy medium to dark brown pour with a bit of red mixed in, and the pour made a thin layer of faint off-white bubbles that thinned out to a small ring,
it had a big spice aroma, cinnamon, ginger, pepper, nutmeg, some malt and a little bread, malt and bread sweetness,
the pumpkin /vegetable was in the background,
the flavors were spices with toasted malt and bread, a little fruit, and malt sweetness,
the finish had a small spice and alcohol bitterness,
the mouth feel was more than medium, it coated the tongue a bit, it was a little creamy and had average carbonation,
a big spice beer with not much pumpkin or vegetable in this beer,
the flavor was not as spicy as I was expecting with the amount of spice on the nose, but it was pretty much all spice and malt in the flavor, very little to no pumpkin, not a beer I would want to try again.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber color with almost no head. Smells of spice. No lacing. The taste is sour and spicy with a bad aftertaste from the spice. I didn’t detect any pumpkin. I didn’t like this one.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I had this at a Rock music festival a month ago on tap. My impression was that there was more spice, mint and herbs than pumpkin. I didn’t really get pumpkin. It also had a lot of alcohol taste to it. Maybe it was that particular keg, but it was a very aggressive tasting beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a copper color with a thin white head that quickly disappears. Aroma is pumpkin, caramel, and spices, such as nutmeg and allspice. Flavor is dominated by the spices, with cardamom, cinnamon, and nutmeg dominating. Slightly sweet, with a lightly bitter finish. Enjoyable, if a bit too heavy on the spices.
