4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer pours an almost red amber. The notes of allspice, pumkin, clove, and nutmeg show over the malt. The palate shows the same flavors but balanced in between is the potency of the high abv. It balances out nicely.

Bottle. One of my favorite pumpkin beers of the season behind Smutty and DFH. This stuff is really tasty. The pumpkin pie flavor is enriched by the vanilla which adds a whipped cream consistency to my pie -in-a-glass. I like the clove and nutmeg as well.

22oz, bought from store recently, kept in cellar all year, nice spicy nose on this one there is a ton of spice in this beer, not necessarily all pumpkin flavor but very reminiscent of pumpkin pie with alcohol and some malt, a nice seasonal brew with some age on it... enjoyed around campfire.

Bottle sent by sliffy in the swap. Thanks Dan. Shared with another Dan, Steven, and Rob and maybe Matt. This shit was straight on. Looked just like I thought it would, smelled and tasted as expected too. Lots of spices, nutmeg in particular, clove, cinnamon and pumpking flavors. Like a pumpking pie in a beer. Veryy good for its style, but not my favorite beer.

Thanks to JB175 for the bottle. Cloudy reddish copper color. Smell of nutmeg, pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves, pie crust, hops, flowers and vegetable oil. Tastes the same. Wow! I love the spices and its really good. I cant wait for fall and I must get some more of this.

The spices dominate the aroma,you get a noseful of cinnamon, clovess, nutmeg,so much you almost need to sneeze, pumpkin pie spices are what the flavor is all about some actual pumpkin flavor and sweet malt,with touches of alcohol floating around there,little bit of bitterness in finish,loses something by being sipped in the middle of July,maybe more of a Christmas ale, but as far as something with pumpkin,yeah its the best. Thanks Kingpin

This is the best Pumpkin Ale around! Hands down!! Every year I run the gamut of Pumpkin ales/beers. Nothing comes close! From Weyerbacher, it runs a very, very close second to Imperial Raspberry Stout.

Bottle purchased at Whole Foods: pours a darkish orange, aroma of pumpkin and nutmeg is very strong, taste has notes of nutmeg, pumpkin and cinnamon. This is a nice brew. I’ll be looking for it again next fall.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
A dark orange colored beer. The aroma is like fresh baked pumpkin pie (Even though I hate to eat pumpkin pie I do like the way it smells) Also some cloves and cinammon. The flavor is like walking around with a pumpkin on your head and feeding yourself ginger bread man cookies through the mouth hole. Uhhh yeah, some alcohol shows through in the finish. This has to be one of the best pumpkin beers out there, well if not I’d be impressed by whatever would beat it out.
