The secret is in the 2.5 pounds of spice per barrel for this fall brew. We add the pumpkin during the mash at precisely the right time to create just the perfect balance of malt, hops, pumpkin and spice.

( 22oz bomber thanks to BMan1113VR) Pours clear orange with nice oily bubbles. Nose of sourness, pumpkin mash and cinnamon. Taste is heavy on cinnamon, bad/rotten pumpkin and lingers the same way on my tongue. Really not very well done.

Pours a one finger cream head that fades to a ring, leaving some lace. Almost clear pale amber color. Pumpkin spice nose. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Flavor is pumpkin pie spices. Nice balance of spice and malts. $6.75 for a 22oz bottle from Tullys Beer & Wine Wells, Me.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle:   Amberish golden, minor haze, thin finely bubbled head, whispy lacing.   Smells like a damn fragrance candle.   Hmmm, like pine and autumn leaves with gingerbread.   Hmmm, not quite sure to make of this.   Less of a pumpkin but instead a spiced ale of sorts.   Sweetened carrots too.   This is an odd duck.   Almost has a hot cinnamon spiciness, without the heat and cinnamon.   Hmmm...   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Certainly flavorful, but comes across as a spiced candle.   Thanks Rob!

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Bottle on 09/10/2009. Very clear orange body with a small off-white head. Big allspice and cinnamon aroma. Sweet allspice, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie flavor. Medium light body with moderate carbonation.

Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2009
really spicy aroma- nutmeg and cinnamon. Like egg nog on the nose- moutghfeel is very dry and fizzy. Not too much flavor, definitely not of pumpkin. I expected a lot more in this. Overall thin.

kramer (5951) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2009
22 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper orange body with a very minimal off-white head that completely vanished within seconds. The nose is spice heavy with mostly nutmeg but a lighter note of cinnamon. Theres a fairly hefty caramel and toffee maltiness below. The flavor is very sweet with lots of caramel under the heavy nutmeg and allspice. I like that theres not as much cinnamon as there is in many pumpkin beers though. Long lingering spice and caramel on the finish. Fairly heavy and thick on the palate with a little stickiness. Very prickly fizzy carbonation. Overall this wasnt bad, but not as enjoyable as Weyerbacher Impy Pumpkin.

ChainGangGuy (4826) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 14, 2009
12 ounce bomber - $4.99 at Bullocks Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia. Appearance: Pours a clear, robust dark orange body with a susdy, frothy, ivory-colored head. It thins down into a fine, thin layering, though it has some nice staying power. Smell: Well-spiced, bready nose with plenty of chunky pumpkin notes. Its a nicely fragrant bowl stirred up with brown sugar, cinnamon, and bread crumbs is what it is. Taste: Its bready, sweet, and spicy. Dry, crumbly, lightly toasted bready malt profile generously coated in dark brown sugar and cinnamon and nutmeg. This one has just the right amount of pumpkin flesh flavor. Mildly bitter though with a restrained hop character, allowing for the spices to shine. The very faintest touch of warming alcohol nearing the end. Drying, spicy finish with a faint, lingering taste of pumpkin. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A good, admirable, though not great pumpkin brew, but I will certainly say it exceeded my modest expectations after the lackluster showing of the previous members of the Mutiny Fleet. Give it a try, provided youre a fan of pumpkin ales!

daknole (10893) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 13, 2009
orange pour. This one has the normal pumpkin and spice aroma but also has more hops than most pumpkin beers. And flavor is much hoppier than most pumpkins. The minute you think the spice and pumpkin might be too much you get a really nice hit of hops. A really good twist on the normal pumpkin beer,.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2009
Bottle thanks to bman1113vr. Pours a murky gold with off-white head. Aroma of nutmeg and pumpkin. Flavor of pumpkin, nutmeg, some faint sweetness. Mouth feel is medium body with medium-high carbonation. Overall, not bad at all, pretty tasty!
