Bomber. Dark reddish brown colored with light khaki foam. Aroma is mostly pumpkin spice, toasted malt and toffee. The taste starts with a mild pumpkin pie and brown sugar flavor followed by some cinnamon, clove and caramel malt. Also a little bit of raisin and fig in the background. The body is closer to a Belgian Strong Dark Ale than a Pumpkin Ale with its slightly syrupy, silky mouthfeel and dark sugar finish. The pumpkin presence isn’t too prominent but it blends nicely with the other flavors.
Tankard and Tun, Seattle. Soapy head, clear dark copper brown. Lots of pumpkin spice, cinnamon and clove. Clean dark malt. Fairly crisp. Banana bread flavors dominate. Fair. jbruner (5274) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 6, 2017
Pours a deep brown on tap with bubbly tan head that leashes light lace. Aroma of nice pumpkin pie spice and mild sweet malt. Taste follows, a hint of today and fruity esters in there. It's a solid pumpkin beer with the booze well hidden, but unexciting. hershiser2 (3663) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2016

Poured a deep maroon brown from bottle. Probalby my favorite pumpkin beer of the 2016 season. Good blend of dark ale malts and pumpkin/cnnamon. I know it’s cliched but really does taste like pumpkin pie

Coke, spices and Dr. Pepper in the aroma.
The flavor is spices, sweetness, malt and pumpkin. Quite tolerable pumpkin ale.

My favorite season is finally upon us. Drinking beers like this is a very happy reminder. Beer is proof of a lot of good things. Draft pour at the brewery in their signature tulip glass. Pours a red tinted black with a tan ring head. Rich caramel and smooth pumpkin aroma. Matching flavor. I don’t rate them nearly enough, but I love these pumpkin beers. I think this year will be an up year for them for me, and I couldn’t have started much better. Awesome beer. kramer (6905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Tap, brewery. Pours a clear very dark brown body with a small foamy beige head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is a mix of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, dark caramel, and light chocolate and roasted malts. Sweet, but it smells quite delicious. The flavor is a touch too much spice-centric, but not crazy. Nice sweet caramel and vanilla base with fairly hefty pumpkin meat and caramel maltiness. An almost marshmallow like sweetness on the back end. Mouthfeel is sticky and sweet with some clingy caramel on the finish. Fine fizzy carbonation. Decent effort, I like the darker caramel malt focus.
