Nate (4199) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2007
On tap as Old Schtick. Great spicy nose with ginger, cinammon and mulling spices. Made with butternut squash. Smells like apple pie. Fruity. Deep dark amber clear with little head. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Smooth. Starts with dry spicy notes. Cinammon covered apples and mulling spices. Very little bitterness at the finish, though nice and spicy through the after. Light apple sweetness is all that’s left when done.

Clear amber body with no head. Very thin dull body with a minimum of bready malts is the swimming pool for a weird mix-bag of spices. Cinnamon and a whole bunch of unidentified herbal and mineral spices dominate everything. I was told it tasted like a spicy pumpkin pie but I never had a pumpkin pie. A pint of this stuff is too much. Something went wrong there, like some kind of failed Christmas Beer attempt. Sick SeasonAle.

My Bottom Line:
A powerful allspice paste perfumes this very sweet, holiday concoction. If you usually like to enthusiastically spice your pumpkin pie, this might be for you, but I found this soft-drink-like spicy intensity to be exaggerated.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-There is no head to garnish the brownish amber.
-Nutmeg, pumpkin seeds, and cinnamon all wrap around the rummy, honeyed sweetness.
-Carbonation is rather fierce, which helps to make this drinkable, but its bubbles are too tiny and feel pushy at times.
-I would have preferred more malt, and less overt spiciness, but I guess that wasn’t the intention.

On tap at the brewpub.

muzzlehatch (4822) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 17, 2006
Draught pint at the brewpub. Despite the "stick" in the name this has nothing to do with a sticke/altbier but is a heavily spiced Christmas ale in the manner of Anchor OSA. It sits mostly clear caramel-copper in the glass with just a thin ring of head....the nose is spicy with pine and pie, caramel and earthy scents, anise and allspice and perhaps as it warms a touch of bourbon vanilla....the body strongly spicy, light-bodied and quite effervescent thus easier to quaff than many spicy seasonals, but rich in flavor with almonds and chestnuts making appearances eventually....moderate to strong carbonation, lively on the tongue, refreshing and enervating, joyous.
