12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark brown, with a very small off white head and not a whole lot of lacing. Aroma is of roasted malts combined with some spices some very light notes of pumpkin. Taste is consistent, malty and roasted notes are dominant; also some spices and finally some hints of pumpkin, definitely along the lines of a brown ale. OK beer.
Pours dark amber with a tan head. Aroma if caramel malt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Flavor is sweet caramel malt with light cinnamon and nutmeg and a hoppy pine finish. Darkmagus82 (2302) - - AUG 15, 2014

Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a medium to darker brown color with a one finger cream colored head. The head has a decent level of retention, fading to leave a medium level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is a nice blend of pumpkin pie (pumpkin, caramel, nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice) and some darker coffee and chocolate aromas. Rather sweet yet roasted.
Taste – The taste begins with a smooth bready and pumpkin taste. A caramel sweetness quickly comes to the tongue along with a light roasted malt flavor. Spice flavors of nutmeg and clove soon come to the tongue. A chocolate flavor later follows the spice with a sour citrus. In the end a strange blend of pumpkin, chocolate, and sour flavors are left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – Very thin in body with a medium level of carbonation. The thinness of the brew really was quite poor for the pumpkin pie flavors as well as the darker roasted flavor. Way too light and effervescent.
Overall – The appearance and the aroma were quite nice, but the sour taste and light mouthfeel for the style definitely left something to be desired. Not a beer I will likely go to again. 60minuteman (1744) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Mahogany color. Aroma of toasted malt, peppercorns, caramel, tree bark, pumpkin and spice. Taste is burnt; in a good way. Thin body, light beer. Malty, but not overly so. Intriguing October seasonal. Mild but also flavorful. FROTHINGSLOSH (7879) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a nut brown color with a small creamy orange-tan head that left decent lacing. The aroma was dryish and bready cinnamon and nutmeg. The flavor was dryish and a bit tart with notes of bread, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a bit of clove. Medium length bread and spice finish. Medium body. Meh. bigguns22 (798) - Maryland, USA - MAR 3, 2014
A dark amber beer Almost brown with a thin off white head. Aroma is lite,malty and sweet. A very clean and easy drinking pumpkin beer that does not leave you feeling like you lick the bottom of a spice draw witch to me is a refreshing change.

Bottle via SL... Dark brown in color, small head...Nose of vegetables? Taste is like a light brown ale.... where is the pumpkin notes? Veggies... light toasted malts. Body is light... Overall: Too many good beers to drink a below average beer. Mehhhhhhh, skip it samsmith33 (772) - - OCT 27, 2013
Toasted barley aroma. Dark brown, orange tint. Ashy taste. Very average, or a bit below. jsquire (4514) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Deep amber color out of the bottle with only the smallest of an off white head. Sweet pie spice nose. Thin with lots of alcohol and dusty pie spice and an odd bitter hair spray finish. Not great.
