UPDATED: NOV 26, 2014 Tap at the Rake, deep dark red-black with a thin head and aromas of pumpkin pie and toasted caramel. Palate is initially toasty-dry, with an interesting juxtaposition of sweet caramel, vegetal bitterness and a burnt-bitter edge.

Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of cinnamon and apples. A good pleasant taste of pumpkin, spices, a little toffee and some vanilla notes. Possibly the best pumpkin ale I’ve had. rodric81 (4) - Pontypridd, WALES - NOV 8, 2014 does not count
Bottle pour. Nice strong off white head. Molasses and cinnamon mostly on the tongue. Smells almost like cola tania_nexust (239) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2014
Draught keg at Tap East. Some roast and spice aroma, with subtle spice & fruit flavours finishing on a chocolatey note. Really nicely subtle, not too sweet or overdone flavours. Nilz (523) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 7, 2014

355ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£4.40):
Another fairly enjoyable Flying Dog effort that was by no means the brewery’s best beer but a good one nonetheless, particularly because it was such a big, well flavoured beer that was very nice to sit and sip away at. Perhaps the alcohol content could have been better hidden but it didn’t take much away from the taste and it was well worth trying without truly exciting.
