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!

I loved this beer. It was a real treat and it caught me by surprise. The whole experience was surreal and not what I would expect from a beer at all. A great sipping beer with a strong yet smooth taste and aroma.

Beer is full of pumpkin flavor, not just spices, though they are in there. Has a beautiful color and wonderfully balanced flavor. Also, just love the good belt of alcohol, it’s well veiled and fantastic on a cooler night.

My favorite Pumpkin beer, and I drink every one I can find. If you like a lot of pumpkin and spice then go for it.

I put off opening this after growing weary of Sara Lee frozen pumpkin pie-in-a-bottle pumpkin ales. This one was delightful homemade baked in a woodfired oven pie. Poured cloudy dark copper, moderate head, no lace. Aromas of orange, apple, raisins, cloves, ginger, cinnamon, tea, piecrust, caramel and brown sugar. Wonderful smoky flavor with pumpkin, spice yeast, apple, orange, and malt. Tastes like the almost-burnt crust edge with a bit of pie filling caramelized on it. Nice mouthfeel. Just delightful.

Tremendous beer, stong pumpkin flavor and one of the best beers I have ever had. I’m biased as this is my favorite type of beer. Unfortunately you can only get this during the fall months.

One of the most amazing pumpkin beers i’ve had. The aroma is full of pumpkin and spice, almost like sniffing a pumpkin pie, the flavor doesn’t dissapoint ethier, the flavor is pretty much as if you put pumpkin pie and cake in a blender and liquified it. This is amazing stuff here!

I thought the dogfish punkin was the king of pumpkin beer until I tried this. The flavors really jump out. The spices, the nutmeg, the cinnamon, you can really taste them all. And its not as over powering as the Dogfish. My favorite pumpkin beer thus far.
