Bottle brought home from Eindhoven. The beer has got a deep dark brown colour with a smooth head and medium body. Aroma of pumpkin, spices and cake. Taste of brown bread, pumpkin, spices, chai, vanilla, herbs and cake. Spicy finish. Nice and enjoyable. cmacklin (1205) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 19, 2015
12fl.oz. bottle from 2015 Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Pours a clear mahogany with a large. long lasting, creamy, beige head that laces. Nice aroma of caramel malt, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, clove and bread. Sweet, spicy flavour of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, clove and caramel malt with a hint of hops in a tangy, dry, slightly bitter finish. Light to medium body with a creamy, oily texture and soft carbonation. Well done, as far as pumpkin ales go. ganache (5951) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle. Nose deep and malty, strong physical pumpkin with some earth and sweet spices. Pours deep blood red that’s dark brown at full volume, supports a thick tan head. Taste dry to start with strong scratchy spice and plenty of earth, picks up fruit (mainly red berry) with each sip and thus gains some sweetness; bitterness stronger than expected, about medium on my scale, and notable in the finish. Earthy, malty, pine from medium hops, mild chocolate with is hard to notice at first but adds nice, swirling complexity by the end. Touch caramel, nutmeg the strongest spice and could be pulled back a bit, but the others show some restraint. Bold flavor with body and seemingly more alcohol. As far as these go, good enough for two, but that might be enough for the entire season. [2015.11.15: 3.2] artiredbirds (453) - St.Petersburg, RUSSIA - NOV 11, 2015

Sample tasting at Hackney’s Printers Row. Highly spiced and herbal....this tastes like Jagermeister. Nuff said.

2015 Beer Advent Calendar. Pours mahogany creamy head. Aroma is like a small town gift shop, one that sells all the Pintrest style Christmas decorations and candles scented for the season. All your seasonal aromas are here, as stated in the deScription.
Taste is surprisingly chocolaty, caramel, blasted pumpkin spice,maybe orange. Good beer, for a blasted pumpkin one. Paladares (230) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 7, 2015
Botella. Color rojizo oscuro casi opaco. Aroma muy especiado, principalmente cardamomo, pero con un toque a caramelo y también canela. En boca predomina de nuevo el cardamomo por encima de todo, junto con el dulce aunque leve toque de la calabaza. Si se deja reposar un rato a temperatura ambiente, el cardamomo prácticamente desaparece y queda la fuerza y cuerpo de una ale con su toque justo de amargor. Gran equilibrio y gran cerveza. Distinta. njnut (486) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 2, 2015
Pours a bottle brown with some white head and lace. Aroma is spice heavy, nutmeg, cinnamon, Carmel malts. Taste is same with a slight leather. I like the more mild tone AV took with this one. Many taste like a pumpkin pie but this one has a bit more depth to it. Enjoyed. geologyguy (1608) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - NOV 2, 2015
