Courtesy of rayl101. Hazy amber, mahogany, no head. Aroma has nice combo of pumpkin, spice, back-end sweetness. Flavor much the same, spice tends to take over, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice. Mouthfeel is a little slick, could use more carbonation.

12 oz bottle acquired in trade with RABinVA. Pours a dark clear orange with the tiniest of off white heads. No head at all really. Nice pumpkin scent with cinnamon and brown sugar. Taste is sweet with with a light spice. Contrary to their commercial description, this is not "pumpkin pie in a bottle" which is a good thing because it isnt full of artificial pumpkin flavor and loaded with spice. Just a more natural pumpkin flavor with a nice sweetness. Full bodied and smooth. Very good. Wish this were available around here.

Nocturne (1892) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2012
355ml bottle. Im very excited to be trying my first pumpkin beer, a style that just doesnt exist in Europe. Hopefully Williamsburg AleWerks offering will give me a good starting point. It pours out a mostly clear copper shade and instantly I start to get a sense of pumpkin and spice mix on the nose. I was apprehensive about the taste, knowing that raw pumpkin isnt something I have fond memories of, but thankfully the wonderful spice notes of ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg are the dominant feature. Pumpkin instead lurks in the background. Its quite sweet and the alcohol is never felt. Note to European brewers: start making these... please!

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2009 12 oz. bottle from Grape & Gourmet. Pours brownish-orange with a thin off-white head. Strong pumpkin pie aroma as well as cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar. Noticeable cinnamon flavor upfront with pumpkin pie flavor underneath. If you are a fan of pumpkin beers this is the one you have been waiting for. In my opinion Southern Tier Pumpking is too sweet whereas this avoids that. Im amazed at how much flavor is packed into this beer. Williamsburg AleWerks just may be one of the best kept secrets around right now. This is another fantastic addition to their lineup.

Bottle, thanks to ksurkin. Pours copper, with an off white head. Aroma is like pumpkin pie...pumpkin and spices. Also has some caramel. Flavor is like a liquid pumpkin pie. Rich and tasty, but not too heavy as to be overwhelming. The best pumpkin brew Ive tasted. Beautiful stuff. Need more....

Aroma of pumpkin pie, all spice and cinnamon. Nice looking orange color with a short lasting white head. Great taste of pumpkin pie, with spice and a hint of sweetness. Creamy feel with a spicy finish.
