Clear red brown beer, frothy creamy head. Semi soft palate, dry. Richly flavoured beer. Nutty malt with hints of marmalade orange and coca cola. Plus, of course, a shed load of rich fruity pumpkin with a little spice. Finishes slightly bitter and dry, A very decent pumpkin beer.
Entering old-rates. Draft @ CCB xmas time 2009. Reprend les bonnes bases de la Maduro avec en plus un tas d’épices de Noël comme les américains en ont le secret. On y retrouve la cannelle, all spices et la muscade. Le tout reste très léger à 5.5%, reste dans la même dimension que bcp des traitements de cette bière.

Growler, thanks to Ibrew2or3 for sharing. Poured a clear reddish color with a thin white head. Aroma is very spicy with notes of cinnamon, clove, allspice, caramel, and malt. Medium to thin body with soft carbonation. Flavor was a let down but only because for some reason I was expecting pumpkin, no pumpkin at all just malt and spice. Finished dry and spicy. yespr (46790) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2009
Handbottled, courtesy of MadsBerg. Pours hazy dark amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is solid spiced, cinnamon, cardemomme, cloves and annis seed. Sweet malty, spiced inferno and dry lingering into the far finish. Ends horrible spiced. madsberg (11774) - Søborg, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2009
Handbottled. Thx to lbrew2or3. Deep reddish brown colorued. Unclear. Dense light brown head. Aroma of pumpkin, spice, berries, brown cookies. Flavour of pumpkin, cookies, medicin, fruits and berries. Weird as any pumpkin ale ive tried, but well made and dense. Medium to full bodied. Dry. Light bitter and spiced end.

clear amber, smoth white head.
aroma is very sweet and very spicy. cardemom i think.
flavor is spicy, sweet, faint ice sourish notes, nice blend of spice, sweet and the sourishness (could be hops). Ungstrup (38152) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2009
Handbottled. A deep red beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has strong notes of cinnamon, pumpkin, caramel, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and pumpkin, as well as lighter notes of cinnamon, leading to a very dry and quite spicy finish. The body is a bit light. Hmm - I like the aroma a lot better than the flavor. Thanks a lot MadsBerg for sharing. Papsoe (25060) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2009
Hand bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of madsberg. Pours a clear reddish amber with a creamy and lacing off-white head. Sweet cinnamon aroma with a twist. Medium body, very spicy, roasted malts, caramel and lots of cinnamon. Dryish and bitter finish for balance though. Great for a pumpkin ale. 161209 Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2009
Growler, courtesy juiceisloose. Pours a pretty clear, dark coppery brown color with hints of crimson. A small, foamy, tan head settles to a thin, smooth layer, leaving minimal spotty lacing behind. The aroma shows a nice base of cocoa and caramel, with hints of smoothing vanilla oats and some nice, fleshy pumpkin. A slight touch of coffee roast lingers in the background, while fresh ginger and soft clove lend complimentary spice. The flavor is very well balanced, with the choco-caramel malt and roast providing the perfect backdrop for the fresh pumpkin. The spicing is very subtle, as it should be, the ginger lending a bright note without becoming obtrusive in any way. Smooth and creamy on the palate, though a bit thin, the oats lend a nice silkiness. Sessionable as can be. I really dig this Maduro treatment. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 27, 2009
Thanks to kiefdog for helping me out with this growler from the brewery. Pours a Maduro Brown color with a white head. Nose is tobacco, spices, nutmeg, pumpkin, and brown sugar. Flavor is similar with sweetness, pumpkin, brown sugar, and spices noticeable finishing with sweet and the trademarked Maduro tobacco-esque bitter abruptness. Interesting pumpkin twist on Maduro. Light to medium bodied and enjoyable overall.
