Breaking a long hiatus to rate this beer. I don’t rate anymore, mostly out of laziness, but every so often a beer inspires me to out thoughts into words. The aroma had me envisioning rotten figs covered in vomit. The taste is a perfect balance of tea, cough syrup, cardboard, and pure sugar. This stuff is terrible. I am so completely tired of these sugar bombs that are being passed off as beer. Fuck this beer and all like it. Give me something that’s been through a fermentation process next time. I can’t hate this beer enough, and only wish I had more negative adjectives to puto into this rating.

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.

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.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2017 Flaska Systembolaget. Brunorange kulör. Doft av mjuk pepparkaka, mörk rom, vanilj och fat. Smak kanel, vanilj, smörkola, romfat och pumpa. Söt med värmande spritighet

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 (2294) - 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

Flaska. Något oklar mörkorange med ett minimalt smutsvitt skum som snart helt försvinner. Dofter av trä, örter, karamell och sirap. Smakinslag av läder, karamell, trä, rom och fruktpaj. Det är oerhört fylligt och alkoholen värmer gott. Som en bra barley wine.

October 2017 - Bottle share at CBC Islington. Big thanks to Kenny. As 'Avery Rumpkin', 15.9%. Purple-red, opaque, very small head. Aroma is pumpkin seeds, pumpkin and rum. As described, then. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is spiced rum, very pumpkin, rich pumpkin syrup for coffee, more black rum, nutmeg, also some notes of pineapple and celery in there. Very sweet. A crazy beer, but pretty fun. It won me over in the end but I can imagine some people hating it too. (7-4-8-4-15=3.8)

A-. Pours a hazy burnt orange color with white head. Huge flavor and hides the 17.5% alcohol well. Subtle pumpkin flavor.

355 ml. bottle purchased @ Systembolaget Hansa. Have been wanting to try this one forever, happy to have found it. 2016 Vintage. Bottled 16.08.2016. Shared at Himmeriget. Dark amber, little in the way of head. Nose is lovely thick caramel with some oxidation, pumpkin & pumpkin spice blends into it warming caramel, blended with pumpkin, syrup,… Tastes like a proper old barley wine with some oxidation, way less thick than you would expected, caramel, warming blends with pumpkin, clove, pumpkin spices is heavy but blends into the whole, rum whisky oxidation, warming didn’t feel 17.5 % ABV. Thinner than you would expect sugar, oily warming caramel oxidized syrup body. Works really well, really nice.
