JohnC (3009) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - NOV 5, 2010
On tap at the Rare Beer Breakfast at Stone. Thanks to Dr. Bill for getting this beer. This orange pour has a nice combination of pumpkin & spiciness that’s complemented well by the barrel aging.

Nocturne (2298) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2018
355ml bottle. Copper with tiny head. Spicy ginger and clove, buttery rum, vanilla. Remarkable that this is near 17% because it doesn’t drink anything like it.

Turtles (3308) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2018
355ml bottle from Systembolaget, vintage 2016. Hazy rusty copper color, brief head, no lacing. Spicy, sweet aroma, nutmeg, ginger bread, cinnamon, orange peel, bubblegum, honey, black tea and some hints of rum as it warms up. Full bodied for sure, sweet, silky and warming mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Sweet and spicy taste, dark honey, nutmeg, red apples, cinnamon and some kind of childhood bubblegum. Not picking up on the rum or oak in the taste. Overall quite interesting sipper, on the sweet side, still balanced, not especially complex, pleasantly warming with the alcohol well hidden.

Iznogud (5096) - CROATIA - DEC 21, 2017
On tap at 4th Avenue Pub, Brooklyn. Pours hazy dark orange with small white head. Lots of pumpkin, spicy, caramel, some rum, malty. Sweet. Soft carbonation. Full bodied. Warming, no unpleasant alcohol. Very nice, fantastic for ABV. Extreme, but for sure the best pumpkin I've tried.

TBone (19190) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 10, 2017
Bottled 355ml (vintage 2016, Systembolaget)
Brownish colour, small off-white head. Aroma has strong "pumpkin" and allspice. Full-bodied. Very alcoholic and warming. Pumpkin, spices and rhum sweetness. Quite balanced but I am not a big fan of pumpkin (pumpkin pie spices) flavours. Slow sipper.

zgaier (1983) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2017
Bottle. Pours a hazy copper orange with a dissipating head and aroma of fall spices and pumpkin. Taste is of warming alcohol, pumpkin pie, allspice, and tons of fall spices into the strong, warming finish.

jjgmd (2330) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2017
With Z, pours a dark rusty copper color with no head. Nose is sweet pumpkin and fall and autumn spices.....essentially a pumpkin pie nose. Taste is warming spicy alcohol with pumpkin, nutmeg , and allspice. Finish is again warming alcohol with pumpkin and assorted autumn and fall spices. A very true sipper ! Quaff Score 8 / 10. 8-3-8-4-17
