P: Murky dark brown body with hints of orange. Big dense creamy tan froth that settles to a bubbly layer of creaminess.
S: Aroma is killer! Fresh pumpkin pie with whipped cream. Roasted (real) pumpkin, nutmeg, brown sugar, allspice, clove, barley and notes of cream.
T/M: Spice forward with a backsplash of delicious roasted pumpkin and toasted salted pumpkin seeds. Gingerbread cookies grace the palette once warmed. Medium-full body with gentle prickly carbonation. Finish is creamy and smooth with a dose of spiced hops and pumpkin seeds.
O: Fantastic pumpkin ale! This is full flavored not diluted and has real pumpkin flavor. This is the best pumpkin ale I have has the pleasure of drinking. Hats off to Rogue for this masterpiece. Cheer! partywithanM (103) - Kansas City, Kansas, USA - JAN 27, 2014
I don’t like pumpkin, but this is pretty good. 22oz. All I was a slight pumpkin flavor but not much else. No spices. deyholla (12021) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear earthy orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of fall spices, a bit of pumpkin and a sweet bread backbone. Flavor has a pumpkin pie like note throughout with a bit of earthiness underlying. Navarre (11) - - JAN 6, 2014

Great taste, a decent alcohol content. Has a very nice pumpkin flavor as well.

Some retention and zero lacing. Strong aroma of pumpkin and mild spices. Strong pumpkin notes upfront. Spices kick-in with nutmeg in the finish. Pretty good pumpkin beer.

Bottle poured into a shaker. From notes. Pumpkin pie spices with an added flair of a little ginger. Interesting to say the least. A little more watery than I like. Enjoyable but nothing to seek out Campy877 (189) - Michigan, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle. Finally opening this after storing it in fridge since Halloween. Pours a deep translucent amber with a thick dirty orange head and very faint lacing. Nice allspice and pumpkin aroma. Taste is very much as expected. Pumpkin, spice and cinnamon undertones. Gonna let the other half of the bottle warm up bit before drinking to taste the difference.

On tap. Comes brownish orange with a small tan head. Aroma of spice, malt, and pumpkin. Taste is nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, malt, and pumpkin. Spices do not over power. Good. pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - DEC 14, 2013
On draught at Rogue Distillery & Public House, Portland. Dark golden color. Pumpkin pie spices in the aroma. Taste is fresh pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, and a touch of hops. Finishes with a pumpkin pie aftertaste.
