Hazy, amber-brown colour. The aroma has assertive cinnamon and nutmeg, not showing much of the alcohol. On the palate, it’s messier...alcoholic, tart, the spices are a mess. Overall this is a messy brew.

Tasting at Matt’s
Dark amber color, hazy. Strong aroma of spices, that smells like soap. Good body strength; a bit sour, malty, caramelly, and a lot of soapy spices. Burning alcohol.
To me, not pleasant.

375mL bottle, pours a hazy amber orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out a mix of pumpkins spices and bready caramel malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with intense spices, some herbal notes, and bready caramel malts. Not a big fan of this. Decently done for what it is. Meh.

Ferris (17800) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2016
Bottle - Very sticky pumpkin spice. Cloudy Amber with a small whitish head. Sweet, pumpkin spice and a light tartness. Not bad.

Ktwse (5823) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2016
Pours hazy mahogany with about a finger of off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin, cardamom, light cinnamon, sweet and spicy. Taste is lightly tart before a sweet, pumpkin and toffee, finish. Sticky, sweet body with average carbonation, medium to full.

Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2015
From a trade in 2014. Pours a muddy hazy medium brown with a one finger head. Nice lace. Aroma is big pumpkin, pie spices with cinnamon/nutmeg, biscuit, brown sugar. Taste is actually tart pumpkin, biscuit, sweet roll, clove, cinnamon, caramel, booze. Medium full body, thick. Sweet fruity and booze finish.
