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!

Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium brown with a slight orange hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) off white creamy head that was mostly diminishing and had fair lacing. The aroma had a strong cinnamon and nutmeg scent right off with a nice dark caramel malt, a sweet doughy yeast, a hint of allspice, a decent pumpkin presence and a mild alcohol tinge. The taste was fabulously sweet and malty with notes of nutmeg and cinnamon at first, then progressed with a nice dose of pumpkin, a smidgen of allspice and had a smooth alcohol finish. The flavor was left hanging on the taste buds for a nice long time allowing one to fully enjoy the awesome complexity of this brew. Mouthfeel was medium to full in body, very creamy in texture and had a nice prickly carbonation. Overall an extremely satisfying brew that had all the flavors blending so well that any alcohol presence was almost non existent. It had a drinkability that was so appealing that it left you wanting more.

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Tasted on 1/25/15 from a capped 12oz bottle obtained as an extra in a trade. Pours clear burnt sienna with an average white head that slowly recedes to an average collar of lace. The nose is all about the pumpkin pie baking spices, with a little bit more cardamom and cinnamon than the rest, and just a touch of caramel malt. The flavor is dry and all about the cardamom and clove herbal notes, with the same very light hint of caramel. The body is nearly full with a sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a

Soirée Pumpkin ale au Rattle ’n’ Hum NYC. En fût. Un liquide brun foncé avec une mousse beige. Un nez de légumes épicés. Une bouche piquante qui est le contraire de ronde. Elle a beaucoup d’épices tant au nez que sur le palais.

12oz bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Dark red hue, murky clarity with fully diminishing medium khaki head. Virtually no lacing. Cinnamon, dark fruit, booze and nutmeg aroma as the beer warms. Light nutmeg up front with more of a cinnamon finish. Didn’t get much if any pumpkin out of this one. Mostly spices and booze. Dry texture on the palate. Okay pumpkin beer.

A hazed golden amber ale with copper hues, and a thin mocha head. In aroma, intense pumpkin spices with cloves, gingerbread, cinnamon, light maple syrup, nice. In mouth, a sweet fruity malt with loads of incense, cinnamon hearts, cloves, esters, nice. On tap at Syracuse Beer fest November 2014.

Poured from a bottle. The head is fizzy and quickly dissipates. Nice sweet aroma of cloves and cinnamon. Full body. There is a nice warmth on the back end from the alcohol. Overall, a well done pumpkin beer.
