Bottle from Key Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is strong nutmeg and cloves, mild cinnamon. Taste is bitter spices (nutmeg, cloves) with a nutty, presumably pumpkin, backbone. Spice is overwhelming here. AgentAle (1783) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 9, 2016
Aroma is cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg and brown sugar. Taste is light but rich sweet malts. Caramel, honey and pumpkin spice. The pumpkin flavors do as usual dominate most the palate but this is better than most. Appearance is a clear brown with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly. tillmac62 (750) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - NOV 7, 2016
Cloudy amber pour with normal head volume, outstanding lacing and world class retention.
Outstanding nose of pumpkin, a light sweetness and mixed spices (clove, cinnamon, nutmeg) as an undercurrent.
Outstanding body that is heavy medium and slightly slick. World class carbonation / body balance that delivers an effervescent middle and a nice prickly burst in the finish.
Borderline world class flavor profile that strikes the perfect balance of pumpkin and spice. It begins with a mixed spice that begins as nutmeg then flows to cinnamon and ginger by the middle. Underneath is a subtle sweetness that has caramel notes. The middle is also where pumpkin makes the strongest appearance that ebbs into the finish. From the middle on, spice becomes more pronounced with clove and allspice taking center stage. The finish yields a lingering pumpkin and spice note. One of the best pumpkin ales I’ve had. jcnielsen (3413) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy reddish orange color with white head. Spiced, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie aromas. Pumpkin pie, nutmeg, spice, cinnamon, brown sugar flavors. Probably the best pumpkin beer I’ve had this year. Although definitely heavy on the pumpkin pie spice and flavoring.

Night Owl has a thin, off-white, crackling head, a semi-clear, very orange appearance, with lots of suspended sediment, fierce bubble streams, and a bit of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is of pumpkin pie spices, pie crust, and pumpkin pulp. Taste is of pumpkin pie and graham cracker. Mouthfeel is high medium & chewy, and Night Owl finishes semi-dry.

Cloudy orange with some yeasties. Pumpkin and cinnamon aroma. Very sweet, lots of pumpkin, allspice, cinnamon, cloves, a bit of funkiness in the finish. hman43 (1726) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2016
It pours copper with an off white copper tinted head. There are aromas of pumpkin, yams, a bit of apple, cinnamon, ginger, all spice and nutmeg. It has flavors of pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg which are the predominant flavors. There are also additions of slight apple, all spice, and hints of floral. It has a moderate body with a spicy bitter aftertaste. Overall, this beer reminds me of pumpkins and slight apple pie. It is extremely aromatic and flavorful. jandd1983 (4446) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - OCT 17, 2016
Bottle. It poured a hazy copper color with a white head. The aroma was of pumpkin with some cinnamon and a hint of ginger. The taste was similar to the aroma with more pumpkin, cinnamon and some allspice. It had a medium mouthfeel and a nice aftertaste. Good stuff. scooterbub (1067) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - OCT 16, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Pours an unclear amber with a thin beige head. Taste is of pumpkin, clove, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, brown sugar, spice and malt. Similar aroma. Has mostly full body with a spice finish. Quite excellent.
