4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Collins Pub. Pours dark orange with light body and thin off-white head. Aroma is nutmeg, cinnamon, and mild pumpkin. Big pumpkin, brown sugar, pumpkin spice, and nutmeg flavors. Nice bitter hops on the finish. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. They seem to have ’de-tuned’ this beer in 2012 as it used to be 9.5% and is now listed at 8.1%. I know they moved production down to the Georgetown brewery, and the greatly improved availability of this is much appreciated... but I liked the old version a bit better. It was stronger, sweeter, more syrupy. Still, this is great - legit big pumpkin taste without being over the top.
Tap at New bohemia golden valley. 10oz pour. Dark orange with small white head. Alcohol pumpkin spice nose. . Rich and oily. Heavy spice taste, medium body. Well done. hockey9930 (310) - - OCT 4, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2017 First half poured clear and second half cloudy. Aroma of apples and pumpkin spice. Taste also pretty strong on apples, some pumpkin, and light on spices such as nutmeg and cloves. Xenon (143) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - OCT 4, 2017
I usually only try one pumpkin beer per season because I don't really like them that much. This one was nice though. It's strong enough to handle the spice and pumpkin flavors well. A bit tart and a touch thin for a beer this strong. Spice is slightly potpourri but not in a negative way. Strong but tame is the verdict. Not much of a nose Clarkdvm (531) - Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2017 22oz bottle. Transparent amber (definitely doesn't look unfiltered). Aroma not as strong as flavor to me. Good but too much cinnamon phillyblm (1) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2017 does not count
Smells exactly like pumpkin pie. Tastes incredibly like pie, crust and all. Super creamy. Best pumpkin beer I've tasted

In terms of aroma.. an all-time great... like a Yankee Candle. The taste is a hodgepodge of fall spices and malt.. slight metallic aftertaste. It’s a good one. gripweed57 (2856) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 16, 2017
22 ounce bottle. Amber orange color. Small foamy white head. Spicy nose is redolent of cinnamon and nutmeg. Toasted malt flavor has all the spices; cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and allspice. Quite flavorful with notes of caramel, Apple, pumpkin and pie crust. Mindwarp (293) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Pours gold with a small white head. Aroma is of pumpkin and spice and smells kind of nice. Sorry. Taste is cinnamon and nutmeg not a lot of pumpkin flavor. Overall this beer smells better than it tastes. geologyguy (1661) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2016 Pumpkin spice smell, malty spiciness taste medium strong boldness, smooth and flavorful..flying saucer with john thegreenrooster (4556) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 5, 2016
Pour is a hazy orange with a large white head. Aroma Is a huge cinnamon and nutmeg. Smells like a fresh baked pumpkin pie. Flavor is more of a huge spice. I don’t know how much pumpkin is in this beer but there is a ton of spice. This gets a bit thick after a while but there is such a huge spice the thick cloying is expected.
