Big head initially, but poor head retention. Okay aroma for a pumpkin ale, though a slight rubbing alcohol smell. The taste was way too strong on clove. Overall it had a horrible flavor that was so bad I could not finish the glass. The beer itself was poor, but the excessive clove flavor made it unbearable.
First tried on October 23, 2017 during the Philadelphia Eagles v Washington Redskins game.

I had it on tap. It pours dark red with almost no head. The aroma is pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. The taste is pumpkin, apple, and cinnamon. It’s boozy. I wouldn’t say it hides the alcohol content. It was still enjoyable though. alexsdad06 (11242) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2016
Bottle picked up locally from notes. Pours a slightly hazy amber brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, pumpkin pie spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, pie crust, flavor just wasn’t well integrated, ok. jsmerig (1725) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Pours a hazy ruby red. Aroma of cinnamon and spice. Taste is sweet and malty with cinnamon and nutmeg. Just like a pumpkin pie. Alcohol is masked well.

DATE TASTED: October 30, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Maudite snifter... OCCASION: Another successful high school homecoming game... APPEARANCE: dark, almost mahogany brown body that densely conceals the other side of the glass; tough to see any bubbles; the head is a staunch white halo of bubble and smears; good, thick lacing that resembles Japanese artwork... AROMA: pumpkin, phenol and surprisingly thick dough at the start; caramel is interwoven with a vodka or rum base that suggests the alcohol that 9% brings... PALATE: warming immediately; dissipating aftertaste; medium-bodied, flat carbonation, with no fanfare at its end... TASTE: tough to get past the phenolic presence; the malts are strong and overpower other flavors--such as pumpkin(!)--and leave a plasticine ending ... OVERALL: not at all up to my expectations, with the majority of the experience centering on the awkward, medicinal flavor....a strong, demanding seasonal that needs more nuance to be memorable or sought out...

has a cinnamon and nutmeg aroma. taste is a spicy cinnamon and nutmeg. not much actual pumpkin, but lots of nice spices. good body, tingly spice aftertaste. SteveOrz85 (257) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2015
From 2014 batch. From cellar.
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.
Very little head, almost flat looking. Beer is a slightly hazy dark amber color. Aroma is of caramel malts and doughy yeast and cloves. Taste is strong, yet lightly sweet, lightly bitter and very lightly sour. Overall a good pumpkin ale with plenty of spice. I don’t believe ageing this beer did any good for it.
