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!

Nice deep copper with a small head. Aroma of allspice, nutmeg, pumpkin, caramel, malt, spearmint. Taste sweetish, spices, full body, pumpkin comes out more on palate. Quite interesting.

Pours a murky reddish brown with a cream color head. Decent lacing. Aroma is cinnamon, clove, bread, and a little sweetness. Aroma is light and inviting, no alcohol presence at all. Taste is full of spices, with a gingerbread flavor on the finish. Not getting very much pumpkin from this at all. Flavor is both bold and light at the same time. This is a very good seasonal beer, but not the best pumpkin beer I’ve tried. Mouthfeel is full and a bit creamy.

Pumpkin beer where the spices don't overpower the ale. Good choice paired with Fall food must haves. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Steve_0 (2542) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle at home. Pour is hazy amber with a small cream colored head and good lacing. Big spice, cinnamon, vanilla, graham crackers, pie crust, sweet potatoes, and nutmeg in the aroma. Taste is oaky, cinnamon sticks, yams, vanilla, black pepper, graham crackers, pumpkin, caramel, and brown sugar. Medium mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Pretty decent pumpkin with a high-level of boost offered.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2013 pumpkin pie spice notes in the nose, a little malt. dark amber color, clear. spicy flavor, very pie like, but backed up by solid maltiness. not a bad pumpkin beer.

BrettTaylor (464) - Radford, Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2013
From a bottle - pours a brownish orange, slightly hazy with smallish off-white head. Aromas - smells strongly of clove, with hints on nutmeg and cinnamon underneath. There is a bit of caramel and sweetness on the nose as well. Tastes - spice and pumpkin and a bit of alcohol. This is a big beer and has a very full finish.

Solid pumpkin beer. Aroma strongly of clove & pumpkin. Initially w/strong clove and finishes more w/nutmeg. Very boozy. This one will sneak up on you if not careful!
