On tap at Cardinal. Hazy chestnut body with a fingerthick, cappuccino colored head leaving excellent lacing. Toffee, caramel and butterscotch on the nose. Inviting. Sweet caramel, alcoholic, bitter, acidic. Well balanced. Full body, smooth. Abrupt finish with bitter tones lingering and a dry tongue. Good stuff. Vighals (3995) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - OCT 9, 2015

Pours amber with a dense off-white head. Aroma of malt, berries, floral hopa and peach. Flavor is sweet and somewhat spicy with some sour pumpkin and caramel. Medium body, average carbonation. Interresting beer.
On tap at Patricks. A murky, brown beer with a finger thick creamy beige head. Nice lacings. Spiced, lightly herbal aroma with chocolate notes, roasted malts, a nice hoppyness and somthing lightly sourish. Piney notes. Rather sweet on the palate, but not sticky, full bodied and smooth. Some spiced notes, roasted and nicely bitter. Bitter finish with roasted malts and some chocolate. A nice one indeed, but it would be even more nice with a tad more spicyness. 111028

Dark amber with a small head.
Slightly perfume-ish aroma with pumpkin. Rather sweet with grassy hoppiness in the background.
Soapy flavour. Rather sweet. Not too much of the pumpkin coming through. Piney hoppiness. thewolf (12601) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2014

Pours a very deep copper body with an eggnog head that sticks around for quite some time and leaves lots of lacing on my glass. Malty and strong aroma of sweet caramel, dark caramel, grains and lots of fruits. Strong flavour of dark caramel, roasted malt and dark fruits (I guess this is the pumpkin), with a background of chocolate, dark dried fruits, ash and alcohol. Light to moderate sweet taste with a moderate to light bitter finish. Medium body, smooth texture and moderate carbonation. A nice and complex beer.
