12 oz bottle. Clear brown with a white haze. Nose is cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin. Medium body with a tingle. Taste is honey, graham crackers, pumpkin, clove and bubblegum. Smooth bitter finish. Good flavor saturation as compared to most other pumpkin brews i’ve tried. Sweet and tasty. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2009
12 oz bottle courtesy of an extra from TheEpeeist. Chris.. you truly are awesome. Pours a copper reddish dark brown, fairly hazy, a moderate tannish head that stays at a decent level, laces satisfactorily. Aromas are pumkin puree, vanilla, a touch of cinnamon, caramel and nutmeg come on a bit stronger, but I really do get the pumpkin behind all the spices in this one a bit more. Spices stand up fairly potent, as smoother sweet malts of caramel, toffee, vanilla fill in behind. Initial is medium bodied, preaching cinnamon, nutmeg, gingerbread, vanilla, and caramel, as the actual pumpkin does fall a bit behind. Creamy sweetness mixed with potent spices, a smooth caramel, vanilla, and pie crust, with pumpkin and spice. Very light bitterness on the back of the palate, lingering spice and sweetness. Overall, a pretty good pumpkin brew in my opinion.. very quaffable and very pie-like. Probably couldn’t drink more than 1, 2 tops, of these.. but they are tasty. pineypower (3327) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Growler shared by Mike at Dmac’s house. Pours out a nice orange/copper color with a small fading head. Aroma is of pumpkin spice, sweet pumpkin pie and some sugary sweetness. Taste is pumpkin spice, ah hell enough with that, its a solid pumpkin, good pie filling-like taste, some spice. Solid. Reynolds314 (3450) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 28, 2011
Really nice pumpkin beer here. The flavor is very nicely balanced with a good sweetness to compliment the spice profile which isnt overdone. Really one of the best of the style. magsinva (1250) - Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Tap - mellow mushroom - Charlottesville - end of the keg, pours a cloudy amber with 2 fingers of head. Aroma is faintly of dough, pumpkin pie, spices, clover and cinnamon. Taste is a touch sweet with the spices on the finish, finishes slightly dry. Surprisingly good!

Bottle at craft ale house. Pours reddish brown with a small white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is full of pumpkin.. Much more than others. There is also plenty of nutmeg and cinnamon. The taste is mostly pumpkin pie and reminds me of a spicier version of pumking. Really solid. mcox90 (2088) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 28, 2012
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 isn’t 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. jackl (8071) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Bottle from Wine Warehouse, C’ville. The pour’s deep orange amber with a small off-white head. The nose is quite spicy. Loads of ginger, cinnamon. Cocoa powder. Sweet toffee and vanilla. The taste is rich caramel. Quite flavorful malty flavors that don’t come across as too flabby. More spices. Cinnamon, brown sugar. Pepper. Some toasted nut. Medium body, fine carbonation. Overall, a really nice pumpkin beer. Nice. Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle as an extra in a trade from BMart. Thanks! I had from the bottle during the Super Bowl so not sure on the color, pour, or lacing. Aroma is pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, graham crackers, whipped cream, booze. The taste is spicy cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, graham cracker, vanilla, marshmallow. Medium body, full flavor. Moderate carb. Very nice profile. Tmoney99 (14494) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2009
