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!

Deep amber body with a fine, dark particulate load and a short-lived, off-white head. Aroma of classic pumpkin spice... nutmeg, cinnamon, and light clove... plus cooked pumpkin and caramel malt. Full flavor has very convincing pumpkin pie qualities. Not overly sweet and the spices are pleasing. A good, fun beer.

Without a doubt the best pumkin beer Iíve tried. Spicy and sweet nose. Cinnamon and nutmeg are obvious. Pours a coppery orangish with smallish head. Just like liquid pumkin pie. Well balanced so that the spicy/pumpkin flavors arenít too much. Just very well done and a fine example for itís class.

Bottle courtesy of kramer17801. Fiery copper/amber color with small off-white head. Initial aroma is all pumpkin, turns to spice through the middle. Cinnamon, nutmeg dominate but something really sweet/flower-like shows up. Iím guessing from the listing on the bottle itís cardamom, whatever it is I like it. Spice really takes over in the flavor but not overdone at all, again nutmeg and cardamom, are the most detectable. Faint pumpkin and cinnamon spice in the background. Very well done.

Thanks to JohnC for sharing this at my homebrewing session. Nice silty copper color with a smallish head, aroma of sweet, spice and pumpkin pie. Flavors are well blended, nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar and more, alcohol presence is noticible but not a distraction. Finally a pumpkin ale that really hits the mark, really like this one.

What a great pumpkin ale this is. Beautiful pumpkin and spice aroma, nice pumpkin pie flavor, but not overdone, I really enjoyed this. Itís definitely a beer, w/ pumpkin flavoring. Well done.

Bottle courtesy of hopdog. Muddled orange-copper body with a small whitish head. Nose is creamy and sweet with lots of pumpkin pie in the aroma. Cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, and caramel. Very nice aroma. Taste entices the alcohol out more. It accompanies big pumpkin pie, light creamy maltiness, caramel, brown sugar, big clove, and cinnamon. The spice is just about right for me when it comes to pumpkin ales. Body is medium with some creamy slickness. Light carbonation and a bit of alcohol warmth. Finishes with more pumpkin pie, this time with a bit of whipped creamy-like sweetness and sharpness to it. Lots of spice, of course, and a some mild spiciness. Very nice stuff!

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2006
12 oz bottle thanks to kramer17801. On the firstr smell after the cap is popped I smelled cinnamon and then come cloves, not so much nutmeg however. The aroma of this is quite extensive, over the top and oh so lovely. The flavor comes out just as nice. Spicey and delicate, all the while being intense and lengthy. Palate is fittingly smooth. not harsh at all at this point in its age. Overall a great Autumn brew. I wish I had gotten a case of this for the season. Oh well, there is always next year.

Bottle, brown orangy pour. Medium malty pumpkin and allspice aroma. Less pumpkin the flavors, caramel malty, and clovy allspice. Alcohol fairly present. Finishes dry.

This pumpkin ale rules. I think this is my favorite pumpy ever. I find pumpkin ales to be either way too light on the pumpkin or way to heavy. This is just right. Highly recommended.
