Mahogany color with creamy beige head. Aroma has roasted malt, pumpkin and spices, all in a very good balance. Taste is also balanced, not too sweet, not to spicy. I get pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon and some bitterness on the finish. Body and carbonation are really smooth. This is one of the best pumpkin ales I had so far, mostly because it’s really well balanced, smooth and not overspiced or overly sweet. bb (9241) - Alamo, California, USA - JAN 16, 2016

On tap in Peter Rabbit & Friends. Pours reddish dark brown with short-lived tan head. Aroma is ginger, cinnamon, clove, rose, citrus. Taste starts sweetish, firm and fizzy. Great bitter finish. Quite nice winter ale. Pedrens (220) - SPAIN - DEC 22, 2015
Botella 12oz. Comor cobre muy oscuro. Espuma beige claro de media formación y persistencia. Aromas a calabaza y especiados moderados con un fondo a tostado y algo de malta y caramelo, café y chocolate. En boca un poco las mismas sensaciones con tacto sedoso, entre pegajosa y aceitosa, en boca el lúpulo tiene más presencia q en aroma y compensa un poco el dulzor esperado. En el final con las notas de calabaza presentes deja paso más a los sabores del cacao y cafe, y algo de lúpulo. Esta bien pero un pelin floja en boca. Fácil de beber y menos "calabazosa" q otras pumpkin...

Bottle, craft beer advent calendar 2015. Dark brown, tan head. Sweet spices, chocolate, caramel, pumpkin. Prominent floral nutmeg (mace) character. Nice, but only if you like a spicy pumpkin brew. williamherbert (1544) - Syracuse, New York, USA - DEC 7, 2015
Color is deep, dark chocolate brown with a little bit of red-orange in the light. it’s very dark. The head is rocky and pockmarked.
The aroma is brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg.
The flavor is brown sugar, with more cinnamon and spice. The pumpkin, if at all, comes in the pie variety.
The feel is a little sandpapery and rough, but only slightly. It leaves a real aftertaste. This is a really good pumpkin ale; the sugary, dry balance really works. I’d have to put it at or near the top of my pumpkin beers. AgentAle (1726) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 6, 2015
Aroma is pumpkin spice, cinnamon and light clove. Taste is lightly roasted malts not surprisingly transitioning into the normal pumpkin spice flavors thst has some tart on the tip. Finishes relatively smooth . Appearance is a clear dark amber with a medium pearl head that retains fairly well. Gangstergafje (1102) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2015
Wow, what a nice beer. The looks of it are amazing. The beer has a nice dark brown color, with an orange glow. The beer pours a decent amount of just off white foam. The foam is quite rough and collapses quite quickly. A tiny drape of foam remains on top of the beer. The beer is crystal clear, but because of the darkness you can’t really look trough it. The beer has a delicious smell. It is just the smell I aspected. It is spicy and sweet. I smell cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, all blended together in a warm rich aroma, reminding me of freshly baked cinnamon rolls. It is most certainly a aroma perfect for the fall. It is warming. The spices used really give the smell a kick, smoothed out by the sweet pumpkin aroma. The beer tastes delicious, however, not as great as the smell. Most spices and the pumpkin are more at the background in the taste and the nutmeg is clearly present, especially in the finish. It tingles a bit because of this. This gives a nice sensation, but disturbs the beers balance. The taste is also a tiny bit watery. There is also a tiny hint of a roasted flavor, and a minimal amount of chocolate. I also taste some alcohol. The beer is quite smooth. It is very nice. It is just what I aspected, which makes me very happy. I wished there were Dutch beers like this.

Can. Anderson Valley Fall Hornin - nose is potpourri pumpkin spice. Better in the mouth than in the nose. A tad sweet. Better than expected. A little thick. 7/3/7/3/14
