2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A hazy amber beer with a light brown head. The aroma has very strong notes of pumpkin, but also cinnamon. The flavor is sweet malty, but again with very strong notes of both pumpkin and cinnamon, leading to a slightly dry and spicy end. A bit overdone for my liking.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle 65 cl) Clear, dark amber with a small, of-white head. Aroma of cinnamon and cardamom. Medium body with lightly sweet caramel notes and a distinct spicyness with also the cloves showing. Some warming alcohol in the finish. Pure pumpkin pie in a bottle, but actually rather complex and interesting. 011206

Bottled (thanks PilsnerPeter!). Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is pumpkin, wood and some slight fruity hops. Flavour is pumpkin, lots of spices and salted licorice. Spicy aftertaste along with some hops. Wellbalanced and quite nice.

Cloudy red brown beer. Smooth to dry palate. SWeet pumpkin and malt. Lots of spice - cinnamon and nutmeg. Decent pumpkin beer but over spiced as many of them are!

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2010 2010-03-09, bottle, 6-4-6-2-12=30
Hazy amber color. Mellow aroma of cinnamon and caramel, light vegetables. Sweet caramel flavor, with some cinnamon; bold body and warming alcohol. The final has too much vegetables. It’s definitively not my style, yet it’s not terrible.

Amber color. It has the obvious cinnamon aroma, wax, perfumy, lightly soapy. Medium body strength (less than the alcohol content and the name let expect); light caramel flavor and evident cinnamon; ordinary bitterness; dry finish, still with some cinnamon. I’m bored by cinnamon beers.
Guys, next year try something else than cinnamon with pumpkin, maybe bitter almonds…

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (Thanks to Papsoe for selling it to us) at home - shared with Mette on Christmas evening, while eating Apflestrudel. Dark amber - white head. A lot of spices - Nutmeg Cinnamon, Cardemom, Cloves - as the label says. Light alcoholic, caramel, peber, berries, light chokolate, not much malt flavor..

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber color, small beige head. Christmas spicey aroma (cardamon, clove). Stronger stuff than "a standard" pumpkin ales. Strong flavor of salted licorice, but with quite short flavor. Aftertaste has more Xmasy spices, middle of the pack season ale.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very autumnal with its golden dark amber colour. Warming, delectable aroma with lots of nutmeg, cinnamon, gourd with caramelly, brown sugary malts. Rich palate is boozy, not like overly alcoholic but with the stylish complexity of a fine spirit. Subtle but confident spicing. Lots of pumpkin in the background. It’s 88 F and I’m feeling like trick or treating. Gotta like a beer that evocative.
