COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with Pumpkin and Spices(Cinnamon,Nutmeg,Cardamom,Cloves). This 8.0% ABV pumpkin ale is heartier, spicier, and more caramelly and pumpkiny than its faint brethren! Perfect finisher on a cool autumn night, or match it up with a slice of pumpkin pie and fresh whipped cream. If you don't agree this is the mother of all pumpkin ales, then you just don't like mothers!

Bottle @ ZZT 8 shared by Dutchdrebus. Clear amber to reddish color, virtually no head. Aroma has a lot of herbs and spices with a little sweetness. Taste lightly malts, some sweetness, light to moderately herbs or spices, not nearly as much as in the aroma.

Of the pumpkin beers, this one gets my vote for most pumpkin spice flavor. Packed with cinamon, clove, all spice...you get it all here. Tons of flavor.

Poured form a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Pours a nice clear amber color with minimal head. Aroma is nice and heavy of spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger. Flavor is sweet caramel with some notes of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Finish is bittersweet with a nice spicy pumpkin like finish. Mouthfeel is sweet carbonation is average. Overall this is a delicious beer.

Strong cinnamon spice aroma, in bottle no appearance...a bit too strong on spices hurts it...

DSG (5614) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 31, 2013
Bottle. Better Beer Of The Month Club. Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma of spices (cinnamon, nutmeg and more), some pumpkin, malt and caramel. Sweet flavor with malt, caramel, a bit of pumpkin, quite a bit of spices and a drier and more spicy finish. Medium-bodied. I don’t like the style, but this one’s quite OK. Alcohol is well-hidden.

Poured a hazy dark amber with no head. Aroma of alcohol soaked raisin and spices. Medium body, flavour as the aroma, sweet fruit, lingering spices.
