DATE: October 12, 2017... OCCASION: watching Thursday night comedies with Shan... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... a beautiful brown amber body with tangible effervescence.... the head is white, half-finger thick, and creamy smooth--almost like whipped cream atop a pie... pumpkin, hazelnut, cinnamon, and vanilla make for an alluring scent... an instant spark with the first sip, lively at the throat with enough action at the teeth to balance a beer at 7.3% ABV... creamy body, this one, with a strong central weight... thick splashes of lacing stream across the glass... the strong pumpkin and hazelnut are eased by the vanilla ending, making this a dessert as much as a drink... this is drinkable, though its strength pushes the profile at times... malts are doughy and filling, with spices like cinnamon and nutmeg... a beer I would seek out again for the weekend, strong as it is... smaynard6000 (1226) - Apopka, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2017

Reviewed from "fresh" notes.
This was poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a dark amber color with a slight transparency about it. Some carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace. The foamy white head swiftly dissipated to leave no lace.
The aroma had some pumpkin puree’ type of sweetness, some cinnamon, pie spice, allspice and ginger and a decent caramel/toffee malt base. Also noted some nuts, and a little bit of biscuit/sweet cookie/dark breadiness.
The flavor was moderately sweet with the spices somewhat there. Aftertaste was fully blended between the malts and spices. Finish was quick with a sly maltiness.
The palate was just under medium bodied with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation seemed good and wanted to balance with the spices. ABV felt appropriate.
Overall, now that’s a fairly nice pumpkin ale. Too bad these guys don’t send to Vermont, guess I need to spend more time with my parents during the Autumn to get more of this. DandyWolfFloyd (1212) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2016
Aroma - that creamy pumpkin puree is present, all the associated spices (nutmeg, clove, allspice, and cinnamon).
Appearance - the body is clean mahogany, with a 1/3" white head.
Taste - has a mix of pumpkin and the associated baking spices - nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and allspice. Well orchestrated - nice balance.
Palate - medium body, velvety texture, average carbonation, and a warm spiced finish. cheap (6016) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2016
Tap, industry public house. Smell is somewhat spicy. Reminds me of pumpkin pie nose to some extent. Pale in color. No head. Oh my, lots of spice on the first taste. Perhaps over the top in some respects. Flat presentation. Not sure if there is pumpky in there or not but the spices are sure there. LetsGoState (904) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Aroma is pretty unremarkable. Taste is a bit of sweet pumpkin, but not enough spice. Overall an OK pumpkin ale. cwill (99) - Parkesburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Dark copper orange pour with a minimal head that dissipates fast. Aromas of spicy, clove, nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin.
Tastes of pumpkin along with some sweet caramel. A strong malt comes through first making this almost like an Oktoberfest beer, but it’s followed by pumpkin pie spices. The spice dominates and finishes dry. A hint of some alcohol burn 7.5%. Mouth feel is smooth and creamy. Pumking it is not, but still very good
